Saving mama’s money
Keep your money, be a frugal mom
Hello to all my fellow mothers and caregivers out there. My name is Janeen Walls, I’m a community relations coordinator at Cook Children’s and I’d like to share a little bit about myself.
I began raising my two children by myself after getting a divorce. I’m sure like most single mothers; I had no idea how difficult my new journey in life would be. My hat goes off to all the mothers/caregivers of the world, especially those mothers who are making it on their own. I’ll admit that since getting a divorce, and having to solely depend on one income for two children, I became the most frugal person I know! Yes I said it, I’m cheap, and find great joy in paying little to nothing for high priced items.
But I know some of you hard working ladies out there; don’t have time to find those cost-saving deals. Moms, leave it to me. I can help and I will. So, let’s start with one of my favorites.
How many mothers out there shop at Target? If you’re anything like me, I prefer to get all my household toiletries from Target and Target alone. I recently found a savings feature called Cartwheel. Cartwheel allows you to save 5-30 percent on the things you already buy throughout the store! You can register online at www.target.com, scroll down to the bottom of the page and select coupons. Once you create an account it’s all there. Just click on the coupons of your choice, you can print or use your smart phone at the register to start your instant savings on your next visit to Target.
Target also has a debit card designed just for its most loyal customers. The card works just like a regular debit card you have with your bank, and it’s free of charge. It withdraws the money from your existing checking account, has no annual fee, your PIN is very secure and you can even withdrawal cash (up to $40) at checkout. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, you will also save 5 percent on each purchase just for using.
