Boost My Blog Friday - 5/20



Hello everybody and welcome back after Blogger's last weekend hiatus! And since today is Friday, that means it's time to catch up with Boost My Blog Friday here on Design It Chic!




For those of you new here, it's very simple.. the only rule is: no rules!! That's right!! This blog-hop is supposed to be a boost in our blogs' asses... friends-wise:)!!
So just make sure you link with us, follow us as the host (and leave us a comment so we know you follow us and return the love back:) And then feel free to follow whoever you want to, leave nice comments, send them love notes and chocolate boxes *WOW scratch that last part:P* and don't forget to do the happy dance!

If you join with us on Boost My Blog Friday, please take your time and leave a comment, so we know you're participating with us and maybe pay you a visit:) Thanks!



And as always, today we have another question for you:
For your groceries, are you paying with cash or with credit card?

Most of the times, cash. This way you can keep a better control of the cash flow and you can limit yourself to buying only what your wallet can support:) It's a really great saving tip and it works! How about you lovely galls? How are you buying your groceries?! Oh and also, if you have any tips on saving some pretty greens, feel free to share them here with us and also find out what other fellow bloggers say too:) Let's get this party started and don't miss out the chance to win one pair of glasses/sunglasses of your choice!

And, if you missed anything here at Design It Chic, you can now check the new Blog Tips section at the top of the page, if you need more tips on building up your blog, new blog design tutorials, search engine optimization tricks or all the easy steps to improve your blog's traffic! Happy Friday!

I am following and participating in this week's Boost Your Blog Friday! I typically use my credit card to pay for groceries, but I think paying with cash would be a great way to save! I have recently started couponing, and will be doing a blog post about it soon! Check out my blog! :)

Maureen Makes It said...

I use my rewards VISA card, but I make payments on the card twice a week so I never really run a balance and I never pay interest. I use it for everything and I get about 4 free roundtrip airline tickets a year that way.

I'm participating in the hop and already follow you. Thank you for hosting. I could use some new fun blogs to read and always love getting new readers of my blog too.

Thanks for hosting!

We use our CC, but we pay it off each month. This is more convenient for us. I would love to be able to save more at the grocery store, but since we do not buy generic and usually there are few coupons we can use then our savings are limited. I do take advantage of good coupons and price reducation when I can, though. I can usually make up on savings when I buy non-grocery items online. I always go through Ebates whenever possible. I can earn back a minimum of $20 every three months, which isn't too bad. Ontop of that, I look for coupon codes online to use with any of my purchases - more savings! These savings do add up over a year's time.

Becca said...

I pay for most things on my credit card. It makes way more of an impact on me to see everything added up than to pay cash.

Fresh Mommy said...

Linking up... and always following you :) I used to always use cash at the grocery store, but we haven't been quite as organized with it all lately and have been using our debit card instead. I can totally tell the different. Need to get back to some cash envelopes for the summer! :)

I use cash and a debit card when I shop for groceries. I guess they are sort of the same.

Jen E @ mommablogsalot said...

We're doing a cash budget so we can really keep track of how much we're spending and limit ourselves to a reasonable amount.

Hi - I am asking for fellow bloggers to visit my site in hopes that we can find a match for a young girl that desperately needs a bone marrow transplant. Would be great if you could visit today too. Thank you. Kelly
