I cannot think of one person that does not want to save money. Can you? It seems that saving money and clipping coupons has now finally become something that we all need to do, and why not? The deals are literally thrown at us so we should all take advantage. I grew up watching my mom clip coupons every Sunday and was in charge of that sacred coupon clutch in the grocery store whenever I went with her. God help me if I ever lost that thing. All I have been hearing lately on the news is about how everything, especially food is going up in cost. Now is time to take advantage of all the coupons, deals and freebies that are out there. Many of them are on Twitter, tweeting out their deals!
My favorite part about using coupons (besides the obvious of saving money!) is looking on the bottom of your receipt and seeing how much money you really saved! Make it into a game and set your goal to try and save more each time. If you do it right, you can save some serious dough, and in some cases, the store can end up paying you money!
If you love to save then you really need to check out I Love To Gossip ! Chrystie Corns runs her blog with the motto, “If you like free… you’ll like me.” She has videos, couponing tips and a coupon database. Her secret for saving so much money and getting many freebies is to match coupons with sales and store deals. You can follow Chrystie or “CC” (as her friends know her), on Twitter. Subscribe to her blog and start getting stuff for free! Another little fun fact… You can also see her tonight on The Bachelor! Her little sister, Ashley is competing for Brad’s heart and tonight is the night we see the hometown dates! :)
You may also enjoy following broke 207 on Twitter and subscribing to her blog. Allie Munier makes the great point that, “there are more people out there who need to clip coupons and cut corners just to get by than the standard family mom. So many great resources, but so mommy-centric it’s a little alienating”. She focuses on Maine stores and Maine deals. Love it!
You also need to add Coupon Evolution to your Twitter following. They feature locally owned and area businesses. “What is the evolutionary feature?” It is how you redeem these coupons… Consumers simply send a deal they like from CouponEvolution.com via text message to themselves, or a friend, and then present the coupon on their mobile device at the business for redemption. Brilliant right?
We are all living in the same world of rising costs and prices for just about everything and there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight. If you take some time in getting yourself and your coupons organized and buy only the stuff that you really need and will use, you can save some ridiculous money. So next Sunday morning, grab the paper and a coffee and start clipping and comparing coupons to the store sales. You may just shock yourself when you realize how incredibly easy it is to get stuff for free!
