$7.99 for Entertainment Coupon Book

This is definitely the time to purchase one of these if you've been wanting one. Most of the coupons don't expire until November. And there are even some that are good until the end of the year! Also, when you purchase and register your book, you can download coupons for countless other places not even mentioned in the book. Click here for more details.

Although I bought one last year, I probably will not this year. Last year, there were Kroger coupons included which I could use at my local Publix grocery store. We also ate out alot last year (Folks is one of our favorite restaurants). And we went to the movies on occasion. This year, none of those things apply since we are getting in financial shape after attending Financial Peace University. Check it out!

35% Off of TurboTax from Bank Of America

In case you still haven't filed your 2008 taxes, here's an even better discount than the one I previously mentioned! It's 35% off of TurboTax!

I did end up using TurboTax to file our taxes this year and received 35% from T. Rowe Price who is ia also providing a 35% discount. I found TurboTax to be user friendly and pleasant to use (and accurate too!). I was a die-hard TaxCut user and would still use them again. However, I could not pass up this discount!

Either way, I would highly recommend that everyone do their own taxes if you can. Who knows your financial situation better than YOU?? Trust me, you will take much better care of yourself than a tax preparation consultant who asks that same questions as the D-I-Y-software and charges several hundred dollars!!

Quicken Online - FREE Personal Finance Software

Speaking of finances... Do you currently track your spending using personal finance software? If not, now is a great time to start - especially if you usually itemize deductions on your taxes. I've recently discovered Quicken Online which is a personal finance software that can connect to your bank, download your transactions, and categorize them so you can track your expenses! And best of all - IT'S FREE!!!

Several years ago, I used Microsoft Money to stay organized. I stopped using the software when my husband and I got married and switched banks. MS Money did not support automatic downloading of transactions from our new bank, so it became more and more inconvenient to keep up. (Who wants to MANUALLY input transactions in this day and age?!?!)

To their credit, I must concede that I have not checked lately to see if an updated version of the software now works with my bank. However, I DO know that MS Money is NOT free, and Quicken IS, so I gladly made the switch!!

When tax time comes, I mainly need a total for our daycare expenses and charitable contributions and the FREE online version works just fine for that!

It also helps us stay on budget and work toward our goal to become debt free!

What's For Dinner??

How we wives and mothers wish this were a rhetorical question! Although we may want to dodge this one, it is a good question and it comes up every evening right around 5 PM. We look in the fridge and the freezer trying to put together a meal that will satisfy the gang and is at least remotely healthy.

If you're still reading this and it sounds all too familiar, I want you to consider trying E-MEALZ. A few months ago, I "discovered" e-mealz while listening to the Dave Ramsey show (someone I greatly admire). I gave it a try and have enjoyed it so much that I am sharing it with you. Here's some information straight from their website:

E-Mealz has been created to provide a kid-friendly and family-uniting meal planning resource for busy Moms and frugal family cooks. Each meal plan is based on the current sales at the grocery stores, with plan options categorized according to store and/or weight management strategy. The recipes are delicious, simple and easy to follow. Each plan is new every week and has a corresponding aisle-by-aisle grocery list. Almost every week includes a crock-pot recipe and easy dinner ideas. There are meal plans for two people, for a low fat diet, a low carb diet, and for those who are following a point system, as well!

E-Mealz is the brainchild of Jane DeLaney. She has four children and a husband who are all picky eaters. But she is most famous in her circles for being a cheapskate. She knows how to maximize her grocery budget and beat the system. She has been known to leave the grocery store with a cart full of groceries, and the store will have given her money! (See Jane's Saving Secrets to learn how she combines the power of budget meal planning and using coupons!) She knows that debt-proof living is impossible without a budget, and the grocery budget is the hardest to manage. Jane is often heard saying, "You can't win without a plan, and poor meal planning is a MONEY PIT!" E-Mealz is a comprehensive and workable plan that accomplishes every goal you may have for yourself and your family when it comes to dinnertime.

Goal #1 Spending time with your family
Goal #2 Save time and money
Goal #3 Serve delicious food
Goal #4 Save yourself from multiple and last minute trips to the grocery store
Goal #5 Stare at your children across from the dinner table rather than into thepantry looking for a dinner idea
Goal #6 Lose weight without preparing separate meals for the family. (Every meal plan is designed to be family friendly, even the weight management plans! See sample)

These are Simple and Easy Meals That Solve Your Dinner Dilemma!

Each week's plan represents many hours of planning, pricing and recipes testing all for only $1.25! Needless to say, you will recoup that amount of money many times over with E-Mealz. Groceries will never bust your budget again!

Check out E-Mealz featured in Southern Living!

See for yourself how to solve your dinner dilemma and make time for your family!
