For those of you who ordered the Power Bands……..

 

I try really hard to only post the best legit deals on this page. I also buy most of them myself. A few of you have emailed me to let me know  you haven’t received your power bands, from HERE. I emailed them yesterday and this is what they said:

“We are experiencing a delay at this time.  We are working diligently to get all orders out as soon as possible.  We will notify you via email once your order ships out.

 Thank you for your patience.”

I am very sorry about this, I also emailed SaveMore and I am waiting for their response. I just wanted to give you guys a heads up!

GO HERE and use the code BIGTIMEBUCKS to score yourself an extra 70 Swagbucks (on top of the original 30 you get) so 100 to start you off (new members only)! 

I get tons of Amazon Gift Cards this way!! Last year I bought my daughters whole crib set, clothes for her and pretty much every single Christmas present!!!

Swagbucks is a search engine, and the cool thing is that you can win points “swagbucks” just by searching as you normally do.

You can watch short videos and possibly get awarded Swagbucks.

Play Games:
Just find a game and play for free, you may win between 1-5 Swagbucks after you play.

Taking Surveys
Another way to earn Swagbucks is by taking surveys online through Swagbucks. Each one is worth a different amount.

Now go get your “swag” on and come back and let me know if anyone gets some MEGA SWAGBUCKS!

Newspaper Insert Preview!

There will be a 4 inserts in this Sunday’s paper:

If you just started couponing it would help a lot to know how many newspapers to buy (you don’t have to buy newspapers if you don’t want to but it helps a lot!)

The rule of thumb is 1 newspaper per family member so we have 4 family members , so I buy 4. Some people buy an extra newspapers, but I have issues with this since I am not a fan of odd numbers!

Also, if you are barely starting and all this is really new to you, I recommend buying only 2. If there’s a BOGO sale you can still get 1 deal. Once you get the hang of it you can buy as many as you want.

Extreme Couponing: Couponing 101

 

Since Extreme Couponing aired last night, I am sure there’s a tons of new couponers around. So here are some tips!

If you are new to using coupons then you’ve come to the right place! I’m going to give you some tips and teach you what I know about using coupons and saving lots of money doing so! I will focus on deals in Austin, TX and surrounding areas, but most deals are not area specific so they will be helpful to anyone anywhere in the US!!!

First of all, what is “couponing”?

A lot of people don’t understand how you can take a $0.50 off coupon and save so much money, get things for free, or even make money! It’s possible, I do it all the time, and you can do it too. Here is the basic concept that has to be applied when using coupons: Only use a coupon when paired up with a sale! Here’s an example of what this means:

If you have a coupon for $0.50 off Dole Peaches and you take that to the store and pick up a can that is priced normally at $1.00, then you are going to pay $0.50 and therefore you will have only saved $0.50. NOW, lets say that you wait until you see those peaches go on sale for $0.50 ( they will) then after your $0.50 coupon, you will get these for FREE!  So really, that’s the secret to using coupons. Matching the coupons with the lowest price.  I help make this easier for you by providing you with free lists of sales matched with coupons and post any good deals I find at stores with coupons.

There’s lots of stuff you won’t have to pay for again! Like, toothpaste, razors (even $8 ones), toothbrushes, deodorants, soaps and more! I remember when I first heard this and thought to myself “THERE’S NO WAY! Yes, this is very true and the stores you will be getting them for free are Walgreen’s & CVS!

Where do I get my coupons? Well, there are MANY different places to get coupons…

Sunday Newspaper – These are the mega coupon papers! You will want to get one (or more) every Sunday. They will have coupon inserts in them including Red Plum (RP), Smart Source (SS), Proctor & Gamble (P&G). Occasionally you will get bonus inserts including, General Mills (GM), Target and more.

Printable Coupons (from the Internet) – My favorite sites to print coupons from are Coupons.com, Red Plum, Smart Source, and Target (yes, they have coupons)!

MagazinesAll You Magazine is a great one to get. You can find these at Walmart. It is full of manufacturer coupons. Also, the Parents magazine is a great one that has good coupons for parents such as, Gymboree, Amazon diapers and more.

Products you purchase – Keep in mind that on a lot of boxes of items you buy, there are coupons! For example, my box of Tide Laundry Detergent had $4 in coupons in the inside cardboard.

Tear Pad or Blinkie – these are found in the Grocery stores and have coupons on them that you can take.

Peelie – Coupon sticker found on the outside of a product.

Catalina – These will print on the back of your receipt or with your receipt and usually for an item similar to something you purchased.

Coupon Trains – Consider circulating and trading coupons via mail with family & friends.

Tips before hitting up the stores!

Start out slowly and don’t plan on getting in on every single deal or it will all feel overwhelming! When I first started, I would find a good deal and go out and get it but I found I was doing this way too often and really just using a lot of gas. Understand that you don’t need to get every deal.

Be organized! I shop one day a week and the night before my shopping day, I get my lists ready and coupons together. I choose Sunday because you will see that on Saturday I post the coupon matched lists and Sunday is when the new ads start (for drugstores where you will find a ton of great deals).

Figure out a way that best suites you to organize your coupons. This is so important because if your coupons are not organized, you are going to get stressed out when you can’t find certain coupons and using coupons to save money is going to take a lot more time.

Print out Store Coupon Policies, and I highly recommend this in case you have a problem with a cashier honoring your coupons. If you have your store policy with you, you can just pull it out and it will make things a lot easier for you. Not saying you will have problems, but sometimes there are cashiers out there that feel like they are doing something wrong when you are getting items for free or close to it.

Get your store’s weekly ad circular. You can also view it online or it will come in the mail so that way you can match the items on sale with your coupons.

Only purchase the items on your list!! Doing this alone will always save you money….unless of course you find a freebie!

Here’s an important one…Sometimes a smaller sized item is a better deal! Some coupons don’t have a size restriction (these are my favorite) so therefore you may be able to get that item in the travel section for FREE and if you have several coupons, you can stock up!

Brand Loyalty is a no-no! Be willing to try out new products that you have coupons for.  I use to never do this before using coupons and now that I do, I have actually found a lot of things I really like that I normally wouldn’t have tried.

Overage = THE BEST! Understand what overage is and that it can dramatically lower your grocery bill. Lets say a product is on sale for $1 and you have a coupon for $2/1 for that item.  After using your coupon, you will get $1 in overage, which will then be applied to the balance of your order! Do you see how that can really lower your balance…it’s like getting paid to shop! Note: Some stores don’t allow for overage.?
