The Good Life For Less: Books That Help You Save
I talked about the Entertainment books before in my blog (and by the way today is the last day to buy the 2011 edition on their site). It’s a book that contains discount coupons for food, shopping, travel and attractions around the state.
Right now the 2011 edition is selling at a discount for $9.99 (but be aware that most coupons expire in a few months.) The 2012 version goes on sale soon. I’m sure you’ll see kids selling this as a fundraiser once school starts again.
The book has been around for more than 50 years, but you may not know about one of its competitors ‘Enjoy The City.’
This book also contains coupons specifically centered on one area. In Minnesota, you can get a Twin Cities book or one for the Rochester area.
The cool part about this book is they sell for $20 and includes some coupons for free things that basically pay for the book itself. The Twin Cities book has a coupon for a free oil change at Firestone, a free large cheese or pepperoni pizza at Little Caesars and a free medium one-topping pizza at Papa John’s.
I suggest if you’re spending time traveling in another state, look into purchasing one for your vacation area. It may be worth the price alone for the money saved on going out to eat.
*Note: The ‘Enjoy The City’ book has also been making the rounds on the group-buying websites. It was selling on LivingSocial.com last week for $10, so it may make an appearance soon on other discount sites.
Know of any other deals, share them with other ‘Good Lifers’ in the comment section. You can also read more money-saving blog posts here and text WCCODEALS to 84816 for a ‘deals of the week’ reminder.
