Cost Cutters: Free Milk WYB Cereal!!

One of the questions I am asked the most is how to get healthy stuff and still save money.  This week is a GREAT example!!  Keep in mind that It’s not convenient and takes time.  But I look at it like it’s my second job.  (I save way more than I’d make actually working a second job.  I know because I’ve done it.  Plus my husband and I SOMEHOW bought a house where every single store I need is on my way home from work … so I don’t spend any extra cash on gas.  (Unless you count pulling in and out of a parking lot.)
