A cheap way to have guests over and on a budget is base it around one or two themes . Here's an idea , fondue night . Fondue pots are inexpensive and there are many ways to use them. Like a cheese pot, chocolate or caramel . They all sound good. And you can dip pretty much anything you want . From bread , pretzels , shrimp or fruit .
I love to read . And every week I buy the news paper . It lets me know what is going on in my community & local towns . It also lets me know what events are going on . Most of the time I spend about $20 . It could be a craft sale to family activities . It also gives you a chance to interact with your neighbors .

Cut your cell phone bill by switching to prepaid . Ask your phone provider about the prepaid plan ( I have AT&T). I used to pay $150 a month for a contract , then in November I asked to switch . I kept all my apps , as well as unlimited talk / text , and data usage. If you need more data it's only $10 extra . I also kept my phone . Here's my receipt from this month below .

Debt free!! Most people want to be debt free right ? Well it takes motivation, effort & time ( which I'm not good at because I'm impatient). You can log onto Annualcreditreport.com and look at your 3 scores for a 7 day free trial . After that you have to pay a small fee to look at your credit . In your file you will find your current address , bills , lines if credit , etc. if something is not accurate you can dispute it. That takes up to 30 days for a full investigation. Also credit unions and neighborhood home work agencies help to guide you. A link below gets you started.
Suze Orman is a great finacial adviser for people. I've read some of her books and watched her show a few times . The link below gives you an idea on how to save when you really have no money to do so. Like many people these days it's paycheck to paycheck .
Rite aid deals . As most pharmacies do these days for customers , they give you money back for purchases. All you have to do is fill out a form online to get a wellness card & start getting money back . You can use that in future checkouts. When I first started I filled out my form , received my card a week later in the mail & transferred my prescription from Kidney drugs to Rite aid . That transfer after coupon ( which you can find in flyers) gave me $25 . I bought diapers for my friend , drinks , a couple magazines and gum. Wow !
Target store coupons / deals . I don't have a Target store in Vermont unfortunately , but know of people that are close to one. Below I have a diapers coupon for Target that came out of today's paper. You can also download the Cartwheel app for extra Target savings or log into the site . There is a lot if 50% deals this week be sure to check it out !
Use this at the Dollar tree. Everything is $1.00 in the entire store and guess what most stores except coupons!!! Yay . But it is limited . Since the store only carries certain products and certain amount of packaging , be sure to read the coupons and match up with store deals. You can also look on their website Dollartree.com . Below is a coupon for .50c off one Palmolive dish soap. In the Dollar tree all Palmolive is 14oz. So this coupon will be excepted .
Sundays I get one or two newspapers . I buy the Boston Globe & The Burlington free press. Make sure you check the papers before you buy them to make sure there are inserts that week. Some weeks have no coupons . I buy the Boston globe because of the high value coupons and more inserts.
Love my wine tasting outings . First of all it's wine & food , who doesn't love that ! And it's usually free or $10 / less. It gives me a chance to find out new wines , local food vendors or upcoming events . If you like your favorite wineries on FB or make an account from Localwineevents.com all of it links you to what is going on. Also sometimes the wineries give out wine glasses or cups with their logo etched on the side. My sister & I have a mini collection .
Money saving meal. This is a pic of the chicken , broccoli Alfredo I made earlier this week . I'm freezing the rest of it . I paid .88c for a box of pasta , $1.99 for Alfredo sauce , $1.29 for broccoli and I already had chicken on hand . A big meal that lasted me most of the week and cost less than $10. I also had homemade rolls from my aunt that perfected the meal .

I cannot tell you how much I love EBAY !!! For just about anything. But there is an even better part , you can stock up on coupons and pay less than 5 newspapers . The way you would usually do it on Sundays . Here's a photo link below to give you an idea .
The post I had earlier today lets you get free magazines like me. These are what came in the mail today . Remember go to myfreeproductsamples.com and click on rewards country under the magazine link . Then see what's available . Have fun not spending $20 plus dollars on reading .
