Hello FRUGALS & Thrifters!
If you followed my last post about PINCHme and you actually signed up for an account, here is a great offer that I got through an email from them. YERDLE, an online thrift store, is just like OfferUP – people sell pre-owned stuff at more than 50% discount. There are really good deals on the site and many are like new items.
People who are already members of PINCHme should have received an email from them with this offer of 35$ credit to join YERDLE.
If you are NOT already a PINCHme member, don’t worry you can still get 35$ + free shipping through my referral link. Click here to claim this offer.
PINCHme is an online website that allows consumers to discover and rate products. Every month you can received FREE SAMPLES and in return you must provide feedback.
Sign up to PINCHme, claim your free samples, which are delivered straight to your door! That’s right ALL FREE. All samples are of limited quantity, so always come back to the website… more is usually added.
NOTES: You must complete your profile in order for you to receive customized samples. Not everyone receives the same offers. This is why it is necessary for you to complete your <10 minute profile. Also once you do receive your FREE samples, you must provide honest feedback in order for more offers to come your way.
This is my first time signing up for a “sample website”, but I have heard great things about PINCHme. Some have not receive anything, mostly because you must be fast enough to grab the samples. Think about it, it’s like when there is a MAJOR sale at a store — it’s on a first come, first served basis.
What I like about PINCHme is that many have claimed to receive GENEROUS samples. That’s right, some manufacturers offer the full-size product for your to try FOR FREE. Others have received travel-size products, which is still great in my book.
My order box says that it is supposed to arrive within 21 days…. I will review the website & products once I do receive them.
OfferUp is a FREE app that allows you to buy or sell stuff locally. With a single snap, you can take a photo of an item and instantly circulate it to people nearby. All you need to do is register with your Facebook account or with an e-mail.
Many know this app as a way to declutter their homes and I can’t agree more! Since we are living the military lifestyle and we are eventually going to PCS, my husband has asked me to sell stuff that we do not need.

My husband and I have been trying to find ways to cut down on our grocery bill every month without compromising the taste and quality of our daily meals. I found this amazing blog that offers amazing budget-friendly recipes:
So far, I have reproduced 2 of her recipes: The Easy 15-minute Lo Mein (above) and The Sweet & Sour Chicken.
Both require little and simple ingredients. These are typically meals that you can find at Asian restaurants for more than double the price.
Also, coming from someone who could only boil water a few months ago, I can guarantee you will love these quick recipes! Super easy for beginners!

I’ve been inspired to run this blog for 2 reasons:
- I wanted to show people that it is easy to save money. You just need to research deals.
- It keeps me accountable.
I’ve learned the ways of couponing, finding GREAT deals and FREE stuff from Hip2save & FreeStuffFinder. You should visit their blog, they are amazing.
This month I started getting into free samples (#heartfreebies). Manufacturers often give away stuff, which they ship to you for FREE and they even add in a bonus – COUPONS! They do this because they want you to try their product, which could potentially lead to you becoming a loyal customer.
I however am not really big on brands. I do love certain products like soap by dove or hair dye by Clairol, but most of the time I just rely on sales to get the best deals.
