21 Easy Tips to Saving Money

There is definitely a sense of satisfaction from going to the store with nothing but a few dollars and a handful of coupons and coming home with a sack full of stuff:)   Sometimes I even have more coupons than groceries!  Playing the “coupon game” is a fun challenge with some great benefits.  For Russell and I it’s allowed us a little more freedom in our budget to do fun activities with the kiddos.  It’s also allowed us to share our savings and blessing with others.  We’ve been able to take some of our savings and donate to our local food bank.  The great thing about using the couponing technique is we can give so much more.  It’s a great feeling.  If your interested in learning how to save on your shopping experience, check out our links below and give it a try!   Who knows…you might look this excited the next time you grocery shop:)DSC_0168_edited-1

Online Coupon Codes

online shoppingAs I have mentioned many times in the past, I am an avid online shopper.  But you must be careful because often times the convenience of front door delivery comes at a higher cost.

Other than free shipping, which is always something I am on the hunt for, I do a quick google search for coupon codes before I ever go through check out.  You will  be amazed at how much you can save in just a few clicks.

Yesterday I was ordering some vanilla beans so I could make some homemade extract.  I did a search and read some reviews and olive nation had the best prices.  I added them to my bag and clicked to go check out.  I opened another internet window and did a quick search for “coupon codes olive nation.”

As always, at the top were my two favorites.  couponsnapshot.com and retailmenot.com

Both of these, and many others, keep track of online coupon codes.  It literally takes less than a minute and you can save big.  I was able to save just over 30% on my order last night!

Being FRUGAL and online shopping is possible!

Do you have any tips for saving money when shopping online?
