Couponing that makes sense….

Let’s face it we all spend a ton of money that we do not need to spend! Here I will give you a few tips on how to save some of that money. I can’t promise you Extreme coupon results but you will save money.

  1. Buy a 2 inch binder and a pack of baseball card sleeves. Keep all of your coupons in order by date, area, etc. As you shop, pull the coupons for the items you have in your cart into the sleeve on inside of binder.
  2. Price match as often as possible.
  3. Use the Walmart savings catcher app
  4. Do not buy an item just because you have a coupon. If you can get something you are just as satisfied with for cheaper buy it instead. If you choose to pass on the coupon tuck it next to the item on the shelf for the next person (there are perks I will get to later.)
  5. Always check the clearence isile first for best deals.
  6. Buy the smallest item allowed on the coupon for the best deal.
  7. Use sites like to print coupons instead of MyPoints uses Coupons.coms services but they track the coupons you use and you earn points to cash in for gift cards. If you follow tip #4… even if you do not use the coupon but someone else does, you get the points. With MyPoints you can earn more points by doing surveys, refering friends and more. I have done this several times and gift cards arrive quickly.
  8. Do not buy directly from websites like Wal-mart, Sears, Bath and body works, etc. Again… use You can get coupon codes to use online AND get back a percentage of what you spent in points. They add up quickly.
  9. Use clipping services like to order insert coupons. I think I paid $6 for 77 coupons many were $1 or more off.
  10. Use your perks cards if they are available in your area.

What are your tips?

This is my Journey…

HI! I’m Jessica! I’m a wife, a mother of six (ages 10 months-20 years,) a step-mother of two ages 8 and 11. I have two cats…..errrr maybe a few more in a few months. I am running two business, I am a Pink Zebra Independant consultant and my husband and I are partners in our construction company.

She also has a full house and is running a couple businesses. I have decided it’s time to cut costs, it’s time to get serious about saving money. I’m going to share my journey with you!
