Christmas shopping is one of the number one times that we momma's need to be saving our money! This is the season of spending, but if we do our research, it can also become a season of saving.
Don't forget heading into the holiday season to be using Retail Me Not. Try not to purchase anything online without checking for coupon codes there first! And remember momma's, price compare, price compare, price compare! I'll often have 3-5 shopping carts open with the same items in them from different shops as I enter coupon codes and promo codes until one of them shows a total price that satisfies me! Being thrifty takes work, but the pay off is worth it.
A great website I stumbled upon this holiday season is Hip 2 Save. Hip 2 Save keeps track of a lot of the current deals in the retail and grocery world and posts them daily for you to take advantage of! You can also sign up for their daily emails that will deliver a list of the best deals right to your inbox. They show you exactly what the deals are, and walk you through step by step as to how to take advantage of them. The images of their shopping carts show you that the deals are legit, so you know you're guaranteed savings.
A couple of my scores from Hip 2 Save so far this holiday season? 20 photo cards printed for $1.54! 2 fabulous toys (worth a combined total of $20) from YoYo.com for $4.99! and a pair of men's pajama pants from Target for only $7.13!
Hip 2 Save also features grocery coupons and deals so that you can save on everyday items as well. Definitely add Hip 2 Save to your list of money saving resources, mommas! This one is tried and true.
<<This magic little book is worth every penny of it's $19.95 cover price. Believe me, in your first shopping trip with this amazing coupon organizer, you'll save more than that.
My first shopping trip after putting my Couponizer to work, I saved $62.33. Yes, friends. Simply by clipping the coupons that came in my Sunday paper and by following the Couponizers simple organizational tips, I saved $62.33 off of my grocery bill. That's pretty substantial if you ask me.
The Couponizer concept is really very simple. It's a book that organizes your coupons into simple sections. I have to admit... it's made me excited about clipping coupons. And, at least 5 people stop me at the store when they see me using it... and are amazed at how great it is.
The Couponizer also encourages you to track your results...because lets confess, saving money is addictive. And if you can look back and see how worth it it's been, then you'll persevere even when you don't feel like clipping coupons that week..
So grab yourself a Couponizer from Amazon.com, and subscribe to your local paper... and I guarantee you can save at least 40% off every week of grocery shopping WITHOUT putting in more than 20 minutes a week. (and that's an overestimation!)
**NOTE** remember, that clipping coupons will NOT save you money if you use the coupons to purchase items that you wouldn't buy otherwise. Don't buy something simply because you have a great coupon... only use coupons for the things that you already purchase. And if you have a name brand coupon, don't just grab the name brand... make sure that the generic brand isn't a better deal--even with your coupon***
I'm going to connect you with my all time FAVORITE website. It's called Retail Me Notand it is, without a doubt, my best online friend.
Retail Me Not is an online "community" of sorts where people can share their coupon codes! And the great part about it is that it's reliable. Once you've used a coupon, send a little feedback. Let the community know if the coupon worked, when it worked, and how much you saved!
This is an especially great resource for all you smart phone users! (or any web-capable phone) A few times I've been actually standing in line at a store, hopped on Retail Me Not's website... found a coupon right then and there, and recieved savings on something I was already in line to buy... JUST LIKE THAT! I show the clerk the coupon code right there on my phone, and BAM! instant savings without clipping coupons!
Retail Me not is also a great place for diaper codes! Just type in Huggies or Pampers in the search engine, and you'll get diaper codes that users have shared!
I promise that if you start using this site, you'll be HOOKED! Enjoy!
