Saving A Buck

It is amazing to me to see what is going on in this economy right now. I am counting my blessings and I am grateful that James has a secure job. Nonetheless the time to learn to save is yesterday! So here are some sites that I have found that I love. I would also like to here from you if you have any awesome resources to help save some money.
I have put a link to these on the right of the blog so go there.
One cheap Chick. A friend of mine had this on her blog and I think it is awesome. I like that she is in Utah so the deals are local and her job is basically to find the best deals, free stuff etc and share them with us. She has a daily free red box codes, free movie tickets, and $25 restaurant gift certificates for $10. Plus many others.
Pinching your pennies: This web site takes your weekly grocery ads and finds the best deals for you. They also combine them with coupons that you get from the Sunday paper to get you the absolute best deals. They have other forums that help you save money as well. It is a little confusing the first time you get onto it so I will give you basic instructions then you can find the rest yourself. When you get on find the "screaming deals by state" tab and click on it. Then scroll down to Utah and click. Then scroll down and you will see Albertsons, Associated Food stores/Maceys, Smiths etc.
Pandora. This one is a little silly but it is a free music site. You type in a band/song you like and it will play unlimited music similar to that.
Utah food co-op: Here you can order food at the whole sale price, they are cutting out the middle man to make prices more affordable. They just ask that you do 2 hours of community service each month.(there is also a suggested $5 membership fee) I love the co-op! They also have occasional warehouse sales that I hear are great.
Also the hair blogs often have givaways going on for cute little girl things, although I mostly look at them to find hair do's. Its a fun cheap hobby.
I hope these are helpful to you and remember I would love to hear any that you have found.

I like most of those sites too. We did the food co-op for a while until I found out that if you really shop sales and use coupons, I can still get the food for less.

Thanks for sharing some money saving tips.
