~JBF Tip!~

JBF tip:

Make sure any items that you are selling that are not hanging (socks, pj's, shoes,etc) are in clear plastic bags. This is very important for several reasons. Most importantly, you want your item to remain clean and with the tags in tact.

~Tax Free Savings!~

Good Monday Sassy Savers!

If you are a Texan, I hope you took advantage of the tax free weekend. We purchased my husband's dress shoes and ended up saving about $30. When checking out we asked if they had any coupons, which saved us 20% just by asking! My point here is don't be afraid to ask. The worst thing that could happen is they could say no. Typically if you ask, they are happy to save you money.

Sunday I ran into Kohl's to use the $10 mailer they sent. Those things are AWESOME! No minimum purchase was required, so it was like getting $10 FREE! Of course, my goal was to make the most of it and not have to pay anything out. This is what I got:

Wristlet wallet
Reg. $39
80% off $7.80

Reg. $20
90% off $2.00

Total= $0.00
Saved= $59

Yeah! The best part is that I really like both of these items. Of course, I HEART FREE!!!

~Setting Goals!~

Today's post is all about setting sales goals for the Just Between Friends Sale!

In the spring I found out that our church was offering a family camp over the summer at The Great Wolf Lodge. We were excited and really wanted to go, however it would be at least $500 that we had not budgeted in our vacation fund. So, I decided that every cent made at the spring sale would go toward camp. God is so good and we were able to have a BLAST at family camp with the money that I made at the sale. That was such an awesome feeling to be able to pay for it with my JBF money!

Do you have a JBF goal? It makes it so much fun each night when you look at your totals if you have a goal set! Plus, it is a huge motivating factor when you are getting items ready for the sale.

~JBF is 1 Month Away!~

Here is a JBF tip that I believe to be crucial:

Prep clothing!

Iron clothes that are full of wrinkles and make sure everything smells good and is ready to wear. After all, this is NOT a garage sale! People expect high quality, nice looking clothing when they shop at a JBF sale. I had some maternity clothing that was very wrinkled and not looking so good. I took the time to wash and iron them to get them ready and they all sold on the first day. I know if I had tried to just sale them, people would have most likely passed them by.

Remember, the Dallas JBF sale is just around the corner. Start getting your items ready now. I've already tagged over 200 items! I'm so excited to get it finished early this year! However, I keep finding stuff to include ;)

For more information on the Dallas JBF Sale on September 8-11, 2011 go HERE



~How to Make a Meal For Less Money!~

One of my hunky hubs favorite meals that his mother makes is broccoli & cheese casserole. She gave me the recipe a couple of years ago and he has loved each time that I've made it. I decided to mix it up a bit this time around due to budget cuts. Meaning, the cheese whiz was $3.99 and I typically don't want the entire meal to cost that much! So, I tried a can of Campbell's Fiesta Nacho Cheese Cooking Soup instead. It was actually really good! It did have a kick from the "fiesta" portion of the cheese soup. I was happy that the can was only $1.50 rather than the $3.99.

This is what I used:
fresh broccoli
brown rice (I always cook with brown rice rather than white rice.)
cream of mushroom
cream of chicken
fiesta nacho cheese cooking soup
dried onions (didn't have a real onion)
can of chicken (Don't judge...It was this or a meatless dish and you all know how my hunky hubs feels about that ;)

Layered the rice at the bottom and the soup mixture on top.

The finished product!

Hope this encourages you to use what you already have and to substitute and try something new. You just might like it even better!

Happy Wednesday!

~$49 Gas Grill!~

Good Monday Morning Sassy Savers!

Hope everyone had a fun weekend and stayed cool. Can you all believe this Texas heat? Whew! I'm ready for some rain! Our poor garden. I'm just about convinced that we may never see anything from 2 years worth of trying :( I do take comfort in knowing that everyone I know is having the same problems with their gardens due to the extreme heat.

We were out running around this weekend and found an awesome deal on a gas grill! If you are in need of a gas grill, head to Academy Sports store. We purchased one for $49 this weekend! They only have a select few marked down. We were excited as our grill is literally on it's last leg (well, burner anyway!).

Happy Monday!

~Tips For Keeping Up With Receipts!~

Here is a tip that is working out great at my house!

We have a hard time keeping up with receipts before they are filed or written down in the budget. I decided to put this cute glass jar by the kitchen phone and anytime we spend money we can put the receipt in the jar and it is safe until I have time to deal with it. Nothing gets thrown away or misplaced now.

Hope this helps someone today!
