You have heard the old adage “Time is money.” I completely agree with this. Back in the early days I spent plenty of time saving money because we were both new in our careers and “living on love,” if you know what I mean. I could stretch a buck with the best of them. I used to coupon, and do crazy things to save a dollar or two. However, now that we are both established in our jobs, have kids vying for our attention and making more than those early days I realize more and more that time is money. I don’t have hours a week to clip and organize coupons like I used to. While I want to be a good steward of the money God has entrusted to me and not be wasteful, I also recognize that everything I do to save money does take time.
That is why I love using the Target Carthweel app (I told you about that last week), because I save money on the things I already buy at a store I already shop at. One of the other features Target has that you might not know about it Target subscription service. It basically allows you to order every day items that you get on a regular basis to be shipped to your doorstep for free. In addition to free shipping you automatically get 5% off when you subscribe. And if you use your Target RED Card ( I recommend the Target RED debit card, who wants to go into debt for toilet paper? Not me!) you get an additional 5% off that.
So I only get 6 items shipped to me monthly (shampoo, conditioner, toilelt paper, paper towels, feminine products and makeup remover) with the Target subscription program but it helps to know I always have it on hand and that it comes to my house consistently. Plus I don’t have to take up precious grocery cart space with my 32 pack of tp! Also you can change the quantities or the frequency anytime you want in your Target.com account.
So check it out – it might save you time and money too.

I can’t figure out the app and I’ve had it for months. LOL. But then, I’m an older lady who prefers physical coupons and such. 🙂
Ha! I can understand that, Lee Ann. I still love my paper planner!
