Budget Boo$ters - You Only Get What You Pay For...

But sometimes your only real investment is time.

We’ve all heard the “too good to be true stories”, and many have signed onto the “there’s no such thing as a free ride” team.  While the old adage “You get what you pay for, still rings true in many cases if you’re willing to look around and invest a little time – you can often get a variety of items and samples, and budget saving coupons delivered straight to your door.

This week I thought I’d share a few of these sites. It has been a while since I’ve gone looking for new ones, and I was surprised to see how many more of them had cropped up beyond my regular haunts. One thing to note is that many sites say that they cater to Canadians but are laden with offers that say “Sorry US Only”, but there are also some genuine Canadian offerings out there.

Here are a few such offerings: is a free service that offers consumers across Canada the chance to save on their grocery bills every week by allowing them to choose and receive only the coupons of their choice.  Coupons are mailed free via Canada Post and are redeemable at supermarkets nationwide. runs on the same principle and software as but is Proctor and Gamble Based Products only. Proctor and Gamble is home to such brands as Crest, Febreze, Always, Pampers, Olay, CoverGirl, Braun, Swiffer, Bounty and Charmin. offers coupons across Canada making use of a database based on a user’s zip code.  On this site you can print local coupons and find savings. Simply enter your location to find the deals and offers for the day.
Do you have a favorite Budgeting, coupon or other money saving site that you would like to share?  Leave me a comment or send me an e-mail. I'd love to hear from you!
