Want to Stretch Your Buck? Try out These Websites...

I don't know about you, but these days, I'm doing everything that I can to make my dollar stretch a little further.
Last Saturday, I had the honor of helping to lead a workshop along with four wise, wonderful women at church for our monthly woman's breakfast.  The workshop was called "healthy wallets" and presented guests with 4 different ways to help make this happen!
The four topics covered were getting out of debt, budgeting, making extra money from home and coupons/deals.
The five of us compiled a list of our favorite money saving websites as well as other money saving tips.  I thought that some of the info that we shared could be of value to you.   Maybe you use these already.  Maybe you have others.  If you DO have other valuable sites that you use or tips for us, we would LOVE for you to share them in the comments section of this blog.  Today I'll post the websites; tomorrow will be the tips!
