Save Money On College Tuition

If you or someone you know is applying to go to school for their college degree, fill out a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).  This form alone will save you thousands of dollars!  You can do this from your computer at home or from your schools financial aid office.  Once your FAFSA has been filled in and sent out, you will get a list of all the pell grants, student loans and scholarships you are eligible for!

Save Money At Costco

If you want to know the best way to save even more money at Costco, use their monthly coupon booklet!  They have thousands of dollars worth of coupons and they last around 3 weeks before the next coupon booklet comes out.  I like to buy non-perishable items when their coupons are out.  If there is a 3 item limit for that coupon, I will normally buy 3 during the coupon cycle.

Let's say that the Kirkland Children's Allergy Medicine has a coupon right now and it has a limit of 3 that you can purchase.  Each 2 bottle package normally costs around $10 each.  They are now on sale for $3 off each package.  I will buy 3 packages over the 3 week coupon period to get the maximum savings.  Since I know we will use it before expiration and I have the room for them, it's an easy decision that saved me $9 over the already low Costco price!
