Mother's Day Gifts for the Frugal Mom


With Mother’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to find the perfect gift for the moms in your life. For some of us, though, it’s hard to accept gifts when we know what the family budget looks like.

This year, skip buying her expensive items that she doesn’t really need and will feel guilty using. Why not try a few things that will help her in her frugal life, instead?

The items I use to help me save money are things I see and touch daily. My coupon binder and reusable bags are probably the two things I use the most in my daily life.

It makes me smile each day when I think of the people who gave them to me.


If you’re surrounded by frugal women, here are 8 great gifts to help them save money:


  • Bazura Bags 1 of 8

    Reusable grocery bags are sturdier and more fun than grocery store bags. Plus, most grocery stores will give you credit for bringing your own bags. Bazura Bags are made from recycled juice containers by a women's co-op in the Philippines.
