I have started reading two local ‘frugal’ blogs that you may like if you live in the Grand Rapids area.
First, Grand Rapids Tightwad offer local freebies, concerts, and other ways to enjoy your life here without spending a lot. It’s not ‘kid specific’ as far as activities, but still, who doesn’t want to save a buck?
Next is Sarah’s Deals. This is a great match up of coupons, sales, and deals at area stores. She updates frequently so be sure check in often!
And finally, Grand Rapids is getting some recognition for being young and cool. That’s right. We’re up there with Portland (Oregon, not Michigan) and Charlotte (North Carolina, not Michigan) now. If you haven’t already, you’ll see some gold $1 coins circulating around soon. Read the news story – it’s because we’re so hip. This is very exciting, if not a bit – surprising.
So there you go; some ways to save and spend some coin in hip Grand Rapids. Because there is nothing cooler than a tightwad with gold coins.
