In honor of National Coupon Month (a.k.a. Save-tember), Savings.com is teaming up with our pals over at LearnVest for a free Grocery Savings webinar! For one hour on Thursday, September 26th, a LearnVest financial expert and two Savings.com DealPros will talk you through tips and strategies for saving your money and for living a better life on a budget.
While we are the richest country in the world, the sad fact is that many families in our communities are going hungry. Some go to bed hungry and others don’t know where their next meal will be coming from. It’s a real crisis.
After watching, Hunger Hits Home, my 7 year old said, “Mommy, it’s so sad. It’s not okay that people don’t have food. How can we change this?”.
It’s not just a stranger’s reality, this is a common issue that can happen to any one of us. Hunger hits our neighbors, our friends and our family. Most hardworking Americans that do have jobs still struggle to feed their family.
When you think of February, you probably think of Valentine’s Day or possibly Leap Year, but did you know that it is also National Cherry Month? Dedicating an entire month to a single fruit may seem strange, but cherries are no ordinary fruit. They’re full of antioxidants, vitamin C, potassium, and fiber, but also have a number of uses beyond food. If you love cherries like I do, it’s the perfect excuse to celebrate one of our country’s favorite — and most versatile — fruits, and we’ve got a bunch of ways to help you do just that!
Though the stores start displaying Christmas decorations earlier each year (and are starting to make me feel a bit jaded about the whole holiday season), Christmas decorations are still one of my favorite things about this time of year. There are so many ways to enjoy the beauty and the hard work put into decorating for the holidays and the special events planned at this time of year.
Black Friday shopping is wild, crazy, and a whole lot of fun–until you find yourself with an empty gas tank, an empty wallet, and a car full of things you wanted but don’t really need. Use these strategies to make sure you get what you really need and maybe even save the planet, just a little, while you’re at it.
Here at Savings.com, we love a good Twitter party. We’ve been involved with quite a few great ones to date, and we think our upcoming Black Friday Twitter party is going to be pretty epic. Sixteen of the DealPros are onboard to cohost and talk all things Black Friday. Plus, we’ve got some great prizes lined up!
Hot on the heels of Black Friday comes a holiday created just for American Express cardholders. Want a free $25? Read on to find out how!
Many people adopt a frugal lifestyle after landing in a bunch of debt or losing a job. As for me, I’m pretty sure I was born that way.
In just over a week the savviest savers in the country (and in the world, actually) will be attending the third annual Save Up conference in New York City. We’ve been planning and anticipating Save Up ’11 for months and months, and we can’t wait to get to the city and to kick this exciting event off with our DealPros!
The Emmy Awards, hosted by Jane Lynch of Glee, will be watched by millions this Sunday, September 18th. While many will be taking bets on who goes home with the coveted statues, many of us will be tuning in to gawk at the red carpet fashion.
What will the stars be wearing for the 63rd primetime Emmys? With the help of celebrity stylist and fashion blogger Robin Saperstein of High Heels in a Haystack, we’re forecasting some style predictions…

May is National Salad Month! Celebrate by eating a salad every day (side salads count!) and trying one new salad at least once a week. “But that’s a lot of salad,” you say, “how can I ever accomplish such a lofty goal?” Glad you asked. Read on for salad tips and tricks and a few suggestions to spice up your salad life. Remember: green is good!
Okay, so I’ll be the first to admit, this blog post is at least three days too late to be useful–but you can start planning early for next year.
You can throw a superb Super Bowl party or watch the Indy 500 all day or have folks over for game 7 of the World Series, but the Kentucky Derby is like all the excitement of those events focused into a laser beam. They call it the fastest two minutes in sports for a reason–and that reason is not a misunderstanding of how time works. Because of that, a Derby party is quick and easy and therefore less expensive.
As an added bonus–unless you live near Kentucky–you are likely the only one of your friends having a party that weekend.
Every Earth Day you try to do something to make a world a little bit better. You bike to work instead of drive your car. Maybe you turn off the TV and read a book or play a board game. You might even plant some flowers or a tree. But there’s one big part of your life you may be overlooking–your diet!
It’s understandable: Eating is something we do without thinking a whole lot about it unless we’re trying to bulk up or lose weight. But just maybe, if you knew what kind of an impact your eating habits were having on the environment, you might be more inclined to try to do something about it.
