I love finding people who share my views on money and savings. Anna is one such lady. Over at her blog, My Debt Free Road, she writes about her journey to financial freedom. She offers all sorts of money saving tips and advice. Needless to say, I am super excited to have her doing a guest post today. She is going to educate us on how to Spend LESS and Save More this holiday season.
When a store asks for my email address I give them a junk email address. I use Yahoo! It is perfect because I only check it when I need to. I also use it when I am on a site that is giving away a freebie, but needs an email address.
This year I bought quite a few unique items through moms that own their own businesses. I love shopping at craft/holiday shops. I can find a lot of unique gifts for that hard-to-buy-for person on my list. In my case it would be my mother-in-law. Recently, I started a Facebook page for Atlanta area mompreneurs. Many of them ran specials and offered discounts on a lot of their items. They would put a link on my page and then I would repost it so that followers would see the deals being offered. It worked out fabulously! They got free advertising and I got some great deals!
