How I Saved Money This Week

-I found birthday candles on sale in the clearance section at the grocery store and bought what I needed for the next year.  This only saved me a little over a dollar, but a dollar saved is a dollar earned right?

-I signed up for a free trial of Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited. I was able to borrow a book I had been planning on buying for the boys. We’ve been reading it during lunch and it’s so good I’ll probably buy it to add to our library, so I don’t really know if this saved me money or not…  I plan on ending my free trial as soon as I finish the book.  Books from the library are free and don’t cost a monthly fee.

-I bought the boys’ English Grammar curriculum for next school year used for half price.  I saved about $40 since I didn’t have to pay tax or shipping on it.
