The Frugal Forney

Posted in House and Home by Sarah on August 4, 2010

It never hurts to save your pennies.  I have recently stumbled across a really great way to save both money AND time (hooray!).  I am using’s subscription services to purchase certain household items and grocery goodies.

My foray into the subscription services starts with everything from paper towels to plastic baggies, laundry detergent, and Builder’s bars for Torre.  It works by  “subscribing” for a bulk purchase at given intervals (1 month, 2 months, even 6 months).  If you subscribe, you save about 15% on nearly every item.  Just like at Costco, by buying in bulk, you save (15% adds up quickly!).  And with Amazon you don’t have to worry about going to Costco – it’s delivered to your doorstep!   Hello saving time and money.

Amazon seems to have just about everything you might want.  In fact, it seems to have something for everyone!

For Mom:  packs of mixed nuts, fuel for all your long road trips, and endless baking supplies for Christmas and year-round!

Andrea:  baby food, diapers and baby wipes for Ainsley!

Elizabeth:  Dish detergent (for all your gourmet dishes) and nutritious coconut water

Meredith:  Kleenexes (you can never have enough!) and delicious coffee beans for your badass coffee maker

Mike:  Snacks galore and Old Spice Deodorant, because you’re a man, man

There’s so much more, too!  I encourage you to explore and take advantage of this super saving opportunity!

    Adam and I signed up for delivery of espresso. It’s perfect, we stay stocked and pay less than what we’d pay at the store where we normally buy it. Thanks Sarah!
