(ARA) – As a mom, you’re always looking for ways to save time, money and energy to keep your house running smoothly.
Here are some tips to help you reduce spending, cut back on running around and find extra time at the end of the day to relax and spend time with your kids.
1. Share errand duties with other moms.
One mom can hit the grocery store, another, the department store, while a third watches the children.
2. Shop garage sales.
If you have older children, this can become a fun scavenger hunt while you look for clothing and household items.
3. Use coupons.
Sure, clipping the newspaper is a good start, but online sites like MommySavesBig.com are designed especially for you. First of all, the coupons are tailored to moms who are looking for deals on grocery and household items, clothing, presents for family members, etc. Second, MommySavesBig.com was started as a blog by Anna Teoli, a mom herself, who posted a couple of printable coupons on her blog and then began receiving more and more coupon information from other moms.
