How to Save Money On Almost Anything

This post is brought to you by Groupon.  As always, all enthusiasm is my own. I'm frugal.  I don't like paying full price for anything.  Before I buy something, I always look for a coupon to use in the store or online.  My husband always stares at me while I search on my iPhone for a coupon to use before we pay!  He teases me, but he definitely doesn't complain when the price drops dramatically after I use my coupons.  When I'm looking for coupons, I like to use sites like Groupon Coupons because they find all of the good deals, and I just have to search for them. I've used Groupon before to save on tickets and other events, and now I use their Coupons section too.  Some of their coupons are for in store use, and some are for online only.  Some stores will even let you combine coupons for even better deals.  Some stores will let me show the coupon on my phone without printing it, but be sure to ask your favorite stores for their policies.

You probably think of a plumbing service when you think of Roto-Rooter , but they have new home products.  Not every plumbing situation needs a plumber, and you can save a lot of money by trying to unclog your sinks or bathtubs by yourself.  If Roto-Rooter clog remover, doesn't remove the clog, Roto-Roo

Non Toxic Sticker Remover

When I'm crafting, I have to remove a lot of stickers, especially when I upcycle something.  I use a hair dryer if I can't get the item wet, but that can leave some residue.  I can't use commercial sticker removers because most of them use orange essential oil, which gives me a migraine.  I also prefer to use nontoxic cleaners in my home.  This also has two ingredients in it that I use all the time, so I always have the ingredients.  I started to make a craft for my son, but I had to take the label off of the bottle first.  I decided to share that with all of my wonderful readers, Before using this non toxic sticker remover, it's important to remove as much of the sticker as you can.  Ideally, you'll be able to remove all of it except the residue, but this will also cut through the actual sticker.   Use a spoon to get about a teaspoon of coconut oil and spread over the sticker residue.  You can also use vegetable oil or olive oil, but I think coconut o
