I’m huge fan of two-for-one deals. I think they are the best and when I find them, I usually stock up on whatever is being hawked.
But sometimes, two-for- one deals are hidden in plain sight; one may not know they are in the presence of a super great deal.
My favorite local two-for-one is our local farmers market. Our local farmers market is ranked 5th nationally in the mid-sized market category. It is a producers only market– which I think they all should be! The vendor selling goods is also the one who grows or creates the goods.
Here’s the frugal two-for-one, hidden in plain sight: music + people to meet + interesting things to see + buying healthy, nourishing food= frugal deal 4x over!!
See how that works? Using our grocery budget we picked up some raw organic honey, beets,tomatoes, an onion, and cookies for the kids. For this spend, we had a whole morning of fun, dancing, tag, and balloon animals (free, tips accepted!) but didn’t spend any more on this experience than what was in our grocery budget.
