There are so many frugal and economical ways to shop and enjoy activities.
I have been looking for a blog for budget savvy ideas in the Royersford area, but have not been able to find one! I follow all kinds of blogs anyway, so why not just create my own blog? I hope that you will find the postings helpful! There are great deals out there, you just need to look for them. Businesses are practically paying consumers to "buy" their products. Pay yourself for a change!
Charter Day recognizes the day William Penn received his land grant for Pennsylvania from King Charles II of England in 1681. In observance of Pennsylvania’s founding, the Daniel Boone Homestead will offer an exciting open house and living history event featuring a variety of eighteenth century demonstrations and hands-on activities.
Our historic area will be filled with volunteers interpreting life in the eighteenth century.

As visitors stroll through the Boone House, Robert Mouland will treat them to parlor music. Additionally, all the historic buildings with be open, and blacksmithing and gun building demonstrations will be ongoing throughout the day in the blacksmith shop.
Visitors can also watch leatherworking and tinsmithing demonstrations. At the Bertolet Log House, the 1st Pa Regiment will have a military display and visitors can enjoy tours of the home, as well as hearth cooking and baking demonstrations. Darius Puff will share stories about Native American heritage, life, and culture, and visitors can join the Amity Colonial Dancers as they demonstrate different eighteenth-century dances in the Wayside Lodge.

Complimentary drinks will be provided. Please no pets and no smoking. This program is sponsored and run by the Friends of the Daniel Boone Homestead.

Live in the Royersford area and need your driver's license photo taken for your renewal? Try going to Harleysville instead.
I dreaded going back to the DMV to get my photo taken for my driver's license renewal since the day I left the DMV in Norristown when I renewed my license 4 years ago! The time has finally come around for my renewal this year and I have been putting off going to the DMV. Someone had mentioned about the DMV in Harleysville. I never even knew that there was a photo center in Harleysville!
There were 2 people when I got there around 11 am today (Friday), I got to the desk as soon as I walked in the door with no wait. Another person came in after me and he was waited on in about a minute. I got my picture taken and got my license printed then I was out the door. I was not in that office for more than 5 minutes! I almost passed out in disbelief! I remarked on how fast their process is and how glad I was that I heard about the place since I did not want to go to Norristown. The one person said that, yes, I would have been in the Norristown office for hours.
From where I am in Royersford, it would have been the same distance whether I go to the Norristown or Harleysville location. Going to Harleysville saved me so much time.

I just purchased a BJ's Wholesale club discounted gift card from Raise.com, saving me 13%. I go to BJ's almost every week to get gas and groceries. BJ's accepts manufacturer's coupons that can be combined with BJ's store coupons.
In addition, I can use multiple manufacturer coupons on certain "grouped" items as long as the items have their own UPC. For example, you can use two manufacturer coupons on a pack of 2 bottles of baby shampoo that are wrapped together and sold as one item. This can be further combined with a store coupon if it is available.
Note that discount percentages vary, even for the same store. BJ's gift cards are pretty rare, they are not available all the time. However, if you set up an alert on your Raise.com account profile, you can receive email notifications when your gift cards become available. For example, on my profile, I set up an alert for BJ's Wholesale Club for when the discount is at least 5%. I received an email when this gift card became available.
I save a lot of money by combining manufacturer and store coupons on my BJ's purchases and I will be saving more money when I use my discounted gift card that I got from Raise.com for an additional 13% off savings.
My husband's impact driver tool died on him yesterday and he needed a replacement today to continue the job that he needed this for.
A new one would cost $242.74 with tax
I checked Raise.com and found a Home Depot e-card for an 8.8% savings. I have recently started purchasing discounted gift cards from Raise.com and have been really pleased with their service. I purchased a gift card from Cardpool.com a couple of months ago and had such a bad experience with how long it took to get my card and the poor customer service provided to try and resolve my issue and so I was bit apprehensive about buying discounted gift cards after that experience. I am glad I gave Raise.com a try because they are the complete opposite of Cardpool.com. Raise.com has excellent customer service and they process orders super fast!
I placed my order for the Home Depot e-card at 5:09 pm and received the gift card code by 5:26 pm. Because I was able to get the gift card code in a matter of minutes, I was able to then process my order on Home Depot's website. The item was ready for pick up within a couple of minutes of that order.
I also used the Swagbucks.com affiliate link to order the item from Home Depot's website and received swagbucks points for that purchase, which then counts for 50% of the points I need to cash in a $5 Amazon gift card.
All together, we saved $19.31, which is an 8% savings on the Home Depot purchase. It's a nice amount of savings for something that we needed to purchase anyway.

I stretch dollars by shopping around and using coupons whenever I can. In addition to this, I also combine my savings with other incentives such as earning points from Swagbucks.com, redeeming my cashback rewards from my credit card towards a discounted gift card, or buying a discounted gift card from Raise.com.
Here's a scenario. Although this example is unique to my situation, you can get the idea of how to combined discounts to maximize your money.
I needed to make a purchase from Tractor Supply. Here are the steps that I did to make sure that I found the most deals for this purchase:
Check to see if I can redeem any cashback for a Tractor Supply gift card through my credit card. Companies such as AMEX and Discover give you rewards that you can redeem for discounted gift cards.
Check to see if my credit card give extra cashback points if I shop online using their affiliate link.
Check if Swagbucks.com has an affiliate link for Tractor Supply to earn swagbucks. Swagbucks are points that I accumulate and cash in for gift cards to stores, such as Amazon.com). As of the date of this posting, I have cashed in $105 worth of Amazon gift cards, which is free money for buying the things that I need anyway. You can also earn Swagbucks by using their search engine and watching out for swagbucks codes on sbcodez.com
Check for coupon codes for the Tractor Supply. (There were several codes posted for 10% or 15% off online purchase on Tractor Supply, however none of them worked for me. I even checked with Tractor Supply's customer service and was told that they were not valid codes).
Shopping around for discounted Tractor Supply gift card. I got a great deal on Raise.com. I saved a total of $34.13 (21%) on this gift card. The gift card discount was 17.7% and I saved an extra $5 by using a coupon code that I found on Retailmenot.com.
Check for coupon codes for the website that you are purchasing your discounted gift card from. I saved an extra $5 just by entering a code that I was able to find online (by searching for "Raise coupon codes") - that's easy money!
For this purchase, I saved a total of $34.13 by using my discounted gift card plus the free shipping that for my order because it met the minimum requirements for Tractor Supply's free ship to store deal. From shopping around, I have found Tractor Supply to have the best price for the item that I needed ($32.99 at Tractor Supply vs. $38 on Amazon.com).
Also, because I have a Swagbucks.com account and I used the Tractor Supply affiliate linkfrom the Swagbucks.com website, I can expect to get 495 Swagbucks for my purchase, which I will use towards a $5 Amazon.com gift card. That's an extra $5 in my pocket for buying products that I needed anyway.
From now until 10/15/14, you can get 5 cents off per gallon of gas at BJ's when you shop first and make a purchase of any amount. Only valid on same-day purchase.
The original offer was for a minimum of $50 purchase, but they have waived the minimum purchase amount and it now applies on any purchase. I confirmed this with a BJ's employee and also got the discount myself with a purchase of under $50.
You will get a notification at the pump once you swipe your BJ's card that you will get the 5 cents off.

The Schuylkill River in Upper Providence
Township forms a natural backdrop to this 15-acre display of wild
animals and raptors indigenous to Pennsylvania. Picnicking and fishing
are popular along the river, and a short, scenic hike will lead you to
the Schuylkill Canal Park in Mont Clare.
In one visit to the park’s Wildlife Center you can see foxes, deer,
wolves, rabbits, a bald eagle, many varieties of owls, hawks, turkeys
and an assortment of farm animals. A seasonal butterfly garden and
turtle pond will delight all ages, while a newly opened permanent
exhibit entitled The Schuylkill Wilds features creatures found in
and around the Schuylkill River. Turtles, frogs, fish, snakes, a skunk
and a mink are on view throughout this indoor space. The site continues
to improve and develop, so stay tuned as new exhibits and activities are
added. Fun events for the family, especially young children, happen throughout
the year. Group tours and field trips are welcomed, but prior
arrangements are needed. Call the office to schedule your group trip.
The site is open from 8:00 a.m. until sunset every day except
Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day.
