    I love all the ideas and encouragement. My questions are…Would you have purchased all of these items if they weren’t free or reduced prices? If you get points or credit for signing up for some site, to get these don’t you have to spend the same amount or more at the site to receive that? So in the long run aren’t you collecting more overall clutter and spending money? I am trying to declutter and not purchase things that are not necessary. I live in an area where there isn’t any grocery store chains, etc. (the boondocks) Any advice?

    @valorie, The things I purchased through the Group Deal site were things my family needs such as clothes, shoes, backpacks, etc. These are things I would have had to purchase regardless which is why I sign up for sites that promote things I can use. In regard to the FREE magazines, I would not have bought them if I had to pay for them however, I come across a ton of FREE magazine offers but only sign up for the ones my family will enjoy. I don’t like clutter either so I am selective about which freebies I sign up for. I don’t want something just because it’s free. Every item that comes into my home has to have a place.
