We’re so glad you found us (The Sunday Oregonian — E1)! What is Frugal Living NW? Simply put, we’re here to save you money. We work hard to give you the scoop on great ways to save in the Northwest, especially the Portland Metro area.
Every week, you will find the weekly deals running at Walgreens, Rite Aid, Safeway, Albertsons, Fred Meyer, New Seasons and Target. We not only tell you the hot deals but also tell you how to do the deals — what coupons to use, where the coupons are located (internet printable coupons are always linked) and scenarios that will maximize your savings. We take the leg work out of couponing, making your shopping more efficient and enjoyable.
New to couponing? No problem! We love beginners! In fact, we offer couponing classes in and around the Portland Metro area every month. Give us one hour and you will walk away with the knowledge and confidence to start getting the vast majority of your non-perishable groceries and household items for free or nearly free (no, we’re not exaggerating!). Classes are free with a donation of five food and/or household items to the host’s charity of choice, usually a local food bank.
Here’s a list of our upcoming classes:
:: Saturday, January 23 (10 am) — Montavilla Baptist Church in SE Portland; Donations to Backpack Food Program at Harrison Park School
:: Tuesday, Jan. 26 (6 pm) — Faith EV Free Church in Dallas, OR; Donations to Dallas Food Bank; Register here (required) :: Friday, February 19 (6:30 pm) — River Rock Church in Camas, WA; Donations to Share’s Backpack Program; RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org :: Saturday, March 27 (1 pm) — Rockwood Library in SE Portland :: Wednesday, April 14 (6:30 pm) — Gregory Heights Library in NE Portland
Unless stated, you do not need to RSVP — just show up with your pen and get ready to learn!
While you’re here, take a look around and see more of what we do. Our site is updated several times a day, so you will want to check in often for more ways to make your dollar stretch. If you’d like to subscribe to Frugal Living NW and have the deals come straight to your email box, sign up here.
