Would you please share how you planned your trip to Florida for your honeymoon.
We go every year and we are aware of some things to save money.
For ex., We do take our lunches in, drinks and refill.
We always stay in Tropical Palms. It’s camp ground with cottages. We stay in the cottage, split the cost 3,4 ways bring our food and cook.
Would like to know how you saved money with accomodations, park cost and parking if applicable & anything else that may help. We will be going in July with our first grandchild. Thanks in advance. Teresa

Enjoy your posts & appreciate your long hours on our behalf. I was having trouble redeeming some coupons from at Walmart. A Mgr. told me they will not take coupons with just barcodes & no UPC. I have several of these. They have coupon numbers and seem to meet your specs for a verified coupon. However, there is no UPC square, just the barcodes. Have you run into this before?


Judy Price March 24, 2012 at 1:22 pm

Please notify me of followup comments via email. Thank you.


Carrie July 12, 2012 at 12:08 am

I think I remember a copycat recipe for Ranch Dressing seasoning. I just looked for it again, as I gave my copy away at my weight loss group(we have to be MSG free). Please let me know if you still have it. Thanks

Laurie December 13, 2012 at 7:18 pm

I was just wondering if you track your freebie requests in any way? I mean, do you know what you are expecting to arrive, or do things just show up? I’m not being critical, I love your site and follow you on FB, but I just wondered if you’ve ever requested a freebie and it didn’t ever show up. Have you ever blogged about anything you got that was not exactly what you expected? I know you do the fake freebie thing, I mean your experience with receiving samples and freebie stuff.


Budget Savvy Diva December 13, 2012 at 7:42 pm

There is no way to track them unfortunately


Kaylin December 15, 2012 at 1:18 pm

Just wondering if you have any money saving tips for cell phone plans?


Kelli Bhattacharjee/Freebie Finding Mom January 6, 2013 at 8:14 pm

Hi Sara,

Do you think your readers would have an interest in personal finance topics such as how to save for retirement or how to start saving for your kids’ college? I currently run the site, Freebie Finding Mom, but I used to be a financial analyst in the investment field, so I would be happy to write on these such topics. I am also open to your suggestions.




Kasey January 12, 2013 at 11:35 am

Need a printer that can keep up with my family needs. We are spending way too much money on ink. Your advice would be soooooo helpful!


Deb February 11, 2013 at 4:29 am

I really wish you would put the monthly budget form up again.I was very cute and I only wish that I had made more copies.
Thanks Deb


Tina March 25, 2013 at 1:32 pm


We are planning a Disney trip in early 2014. I thought I say your post on getting a good deal(s) on Disney recently, but I don’t see it now. Could you please tell me again about the deal(s)? Thank you :)


Heather Carter June 25, 2013 at 12:40 am

I am 8 months pregnant and thinking about making some freezer meals for when baby arrives….have you tried any? I have asked other people and they say just to make your basic meals like normal and freeze them but I am looking for new recipes or good recipes that can be in the freezer and then cooked in the crock pot. Any ideas? I love your ideas and what you try so I thought I would ask you.

Thank you


Candice Lopez July 20, 2013 at 7:34 pm

Deb Thompson March 28, 2014 at 12:06 pm

Hi Sara! I LOVE you site —I am a frequent visitor, I especially enjoy your recipes! I was wondering if you could come up with a copycat recipe for Outback’s creamy onion soup? If you’ve never had it, it is so delicious, you MUST try. Please give this your best shot! :) Keep doing what you do! You’re awesome!


Julia April 17, 2014 at 10:32 pm

Hey, Diva

I’ve been wondering if you ever received the owl earrings? It’s been way longer than 6-8 weeks and I haven’t seen mine. I wanted to find out if you got yours.

How can I sign up and get your Budget Savvy Diva emails?


Danielle October 26, 2015 at 8:51 pm

I have been receiving your emails daily and I absolutely LOVED them. All of a sudden they stopped. So I went to an old email that I had in my inbox and it said I was still subscribed. So I figured I would “unsubscribe” and then subscribe again in hopes it would work. However, I wasn’t given the option of “are you sure you want to unsubscribe” or “you are now unsubscribed but if you change your mind and would like to subscribe click the link below.” I have been searching your website top and bottom on how I can start getting them again and I haven’t had any luck. By reading other comments here it seems to not have just been me. I also tried to email you but I got a generic email back stating you cant answer the email back due to you getting so many but I could check the FAQ. I have done that and it wasn’t helpful. CAN YOU PLEASE HELP! I am very disappointed.


Maria December 10, 2015 at 11:01 pm

Just wanted to let you know about the “creamer” you purchased with the strainer. It’s actually a mustache mug from the Victorian era, the men used to grow their mustaches real bushy and wax them. These mugs protected the mustaches when drinking liquids.


Audrey December 26, 2015 at 9:12 pm

I just read your book and it was great. However, the posts on your site are from 2011 and 2012. Where can I get up to date information?


Alessia December 31, 2015 at 7:00 am

Hello! I was wondering if you have an email newsletter I could subscribe too!?!?!? I searched all over the site but couldn’t find one! Thanks in advance


sue uppole February 10, 2016 at 12:46 am

Do you still email out your blog? I haven’t received an email in weeks.I enjoyed the emails and the recipes.Please let me know.I don’t know why I stopped getting you blog thanks


Chris May 12, 2016 at 11:50 pm

I was going to make your Cake Mix Dip and it called for a tub of cool Whip. What size?


Pam May 23, 2016 at 4:25 pm

I love your site. I have discovered many good deals here. One question though, have you quit doing the 5 free books? I have kept myself busy reading with these.
