Most of you probably know Mercedes already. She’s the founder of Common Sense with Money – it’s one of my favorite “deals” blogs and I’ve mentioned it many times.
I think the big thing that sets Mercedes apart from other deals sites, though, is that she occasionally posts very helpful articles. For instance, I love when she explains how her family has been able to get ahead financially after she quit working outside of the home. And her explanations on Walgreens’ register logic have been incredibly helpful to me.
When I first started playing The Drugstore Game, I understood CVS pretty well, but the Register Rewards system at Walgreens really puzzled me. And yet Mercedes would post about the great deals she was getting there, and I came to think of her as the Walgreens deals queen. I still think that way, and her posts helped me figure out how to get my own bargains at Walgreens. Her site is still my favorite one for finding Walgreens deals.
So be sure to stop by Common Sense with Money and check out this week’s Walgreens deals. And while you’re there, check out the FAQ – it’s got some helpful tips if you’re just getting started on saving.
