Frugal Reflections: Your Time vs. Your Money

Posted by Marianne Thomas | 2/26/2009 02:06:00 PM | , | 3 comments »

As much as I adore coupons and deals and saving money, I let many of those *super* deals pass me by because I place a high value on my time.

    I just realized that I didn't have your button on my frugal blogroll...so I grabbed it. Thanks!

    I just wanted to say how much I appreaciated reading this. I am new to couponing and deal finding. I am also on a very limited budget. But I love finding the deals (or mostly taking advantage of deals others found right now).
    But realistically, you are right...there will always be another deal. I should not be stressing over missing deals etc!

    Thanks again for the wisdom

    From The Creek: You're so kind to grab my button!

    Hey, you've got one of those scrolling sidebars for your buttons, correct? Do you have the HTML for that or can you point me to the How-To online? Would love to add one here.


    Take care!!

    Mindolla: Thanks for commenting.

    I well remember the beginning of serious couponing and feeling like I had to grab EVERYTHING each week. But it feels really good to just ignore the deals for a week and focus on other priorities, too.

    Glad you're finding success with couponing!
