Money Saving Tips - Let Me Share One (maybe two) Of My SECRETS With You

DO You Use Coupons?......YOU Don't?

WHY NOT??

Yesterday I went grocery shopping.  Every week my wife & I clip coupons from the Sunday paper.  In fact, we only get the weekend newspaper.  You can see by my receipt on the right that I saved $38.90 on my shopping order or 24% of the total

$38.90

I don't know about you, but if I see $38.90 laying on the ground, I am not going to walk over it and leave it lying there.  In these tough economic times coupons may be the way to go. 

You Don't Need A Newspaper To Get FREE Coupons

You heard me right.  I will share some of my favorite sites which allows you to print your own coupons at home.  Take a look at some of these sites:

www.fatwallet.com

www.couponmom.com

www.coolsavings.com

www.couponcabin.com

www.utimatecoupons.com

www.coupons.smartsource.com

Another Secret Few People Know About

Have you ever shopped online?  When you got to the checkout page, did you see that box that said something like "enter coupon code"?  When I am shopping online and I see that, my eyes light up.  What that box means is.....somewhere, there is a code that you can type in the box and it will save you money.  I purchased a Christmas gift today.  I received $150 off, free upgrades and free shipping (cyber Monday sale). When I saw the coupon box, I searched online for (enter company name) COUPON CODES and VOILA, I found a code that saved me an additional $30.  Now sometimes these are hit or miss, but isn't it worth a few minutes worth of searching. 

If you are keeping track so far this week I have saved $38.90 (groceries), $180 (0nline shopping), $49 (value of shipping) for a grand total of $267.90 and the week is only half over. 

Good Luck,

I would like to hear from my readers how much money you have saved and how you did it.

Have A Great Day

I'm not embarrased to use a coupon but had no idea that there were sites that provide them.

Cool post...thanks for the info.

Thanks for the list!  As a long time member of GotApex, I was so happy to see them included.  Not only do they help me save money, the other members have become like a second family!

Leander,

Thank you,

Nice Post Leander!

It's amazing what a big difference the little things can make.

I pulled out my calculator, and found that if you invested the $38.90 savings per week at 8%, you'd have accumulated $159,709 over 25 years!  That's just by clipping coupons??? Man -- we haven't ever bothered with that, but maybe we need to re-think things ;-)

Thanks again for sharing.

BTW: The only reason I found this post was because we're following each other on Twitter & I followed your "tweet"!

That's great! My Mom raised me to cut coupons too. Not only in these tough times, but even in the good times. There is nothing wrong with being frugal. You work hard for your money and you deserve to save it and change your family tree! Dave Ramsey has some great money saving/ debt solutions that I have clung on to at the beginning of this year. Had I not done so, I don't know where I'd be today (financially speaking).

Great tips Leander. I'm not much of a coupon guy, but then again...I'm not much of a grocery store guy either. I go if I really have to. - lol

I like your idea of searhing the net for those coupon codes for on-line shopping. I often wonder who gets these codes. Now I know! Thanks!

Nice tip.  Thanks for the website links.  We try to clip coupons, but we are not very faithful to it.

I need to share this information with my husband.  He does all the shopping and a great job he does!!!
