Christmas Shopping....have you started? Here's an idea that may help.

I learned of another cool way to save money that you all may be interested in: Discount Gift Cards.

 From these websites, you can "sell" unwanted giftcards and buy new ones at a discount. Many people sell/trade in their store credits. There are a LOT of well name merchants on here, so if you know you're going to be doing alot of shopping at places like Kohls, or Old Navy, Home Depot, etc, you may want to buy a discounted gift card before making your purchase.

I havent been able to find grocery gift cards yet, but if I ever do, it's alllllll over :)

Check it out....

Another way to save money on groceries....

Cook with ingredients you already have in your house. Novel concept, eh? Even if you think you dont have very many ingredients to work with, begs to differ.

All you have to do is create an account, and you can enter in the items you already have in your kitchen. Remember EVERYTHING. The site will pull up a list of starters, entrees and desserts based on what you enter. It will also list recipes you can cook if you are willing to go out and buy just a few extra things.

I found this link on the DR message boards, so decided to give it a shot. I'm tired of making the same old thing week after week, so maybe this will help me save money and try something new at the same time..
