Buca di Beppo eClub coupons
Buca di Beppo has got to be one of my favorite family restaurants filled with a wonderful atmosphere (fun pictures all over the wall) and good food (too much to eat sometimes). Imagine how my eyes lit up when I received this promo in my inbox: Get $15 off any combination of two pastas, baked pastas, or entress when you sign up for the Buca eClub!

Didn’t take too much thought, I jumped on it. You can too by visiting this link.

Boy, do I love contests! I think it is the hope of being lucky enough to win some grand prize out of a group of people vying for the same thing is what gives me the thrill. Unfortunately for me though, I don’t seem to be that much of a lucky person. Regardless, I still do it because you just never know, right?

Tomorrow, one of my personal favorite frugal sites, Wise Bread, is holding a “tweetchat” contest where you can with either $200 Amazon gift card or one of two Amazon gift cards worth $50.

Wise Bread Tweetchat July 18

All you need to do is join the conversation at 12PM PST/3PM EST and use the hashtag #WBChat to participate. They will be discussing all things student loans so if you have experience with them or currently are dealing with them, you’d be perfect.

If you are planning to join in on the conversation, make sure to add your Twitter profile link here.

I do not know about you but I am constantly trying to come up with ways of saving money. Money is precious and there are times when it feels like more is leaving your hands than coming in, am I right? So, sometimes in order to save cash it means you might need to get a little creative. Here are five ways of saving money that may not have even crossed your mind.

1. Petroleum Jelly as Makeup Remover
Ah, the many uses of Vaseline besides needing to take a pesky ring off your finger. Makeup remover can add up and at over $6 a pop sometimes, it can really add up. Most of you have petroleum jelly at home and with places like Walmart, you can get a pack of three for nearly half the price.

2. ‘Rent’ Movies From the Library
Remember when it use to cost $5 or so to rent the latest movies? Thankfully Redbox came along and gave us a more affordable option with their $1 rentals. For those of you who want to save even more: hit up your local library! Libraries are not only great resources for renting books for free, you can borrow movies as well.

3. Call Your Credit Card Company
OK. This one may be a bit intimidating for some of you but, if you call your credit card company and ask to get your interest rate lowered, often times they will agree as they rather keep a good customer than lose one to a competitor.

4. Clean Up the Fridge
Well, the space behind the refrigerator is what I am specifically talking about. You should clean that area at least once a year because the dust and dirt that piles up back there can also be making your bills pile up. In the meantime though, you might want to clean out the inside of your fridge too.

5. Make the Earth Happy
Save the bread bags and grocery bags you get at the store. Instead of buying a bunch of storage bags and throwing them away, recycle. The Earth will be grateful for it.

There you have it! Five things you may have never thought of that can save you money. If you decide to use some of these tips, let me know! I would love to hear from you.
