I get asked all the time how I save so much money and find the amazing deals! I thought I would take the time to create a post in which I will share several ways that I use to save money. Of course we realize that it takes time to for it to add up so don’t expect to earn/save a ton overnight.
Tips and Tricks to Save Money
Just remain patient and it will all pay off. I’ve started my savings plan for and will save my money throughout the entire year and use that for my holiday shopping later. The sites below are all FREE to join and will allow you to save money up front or get money back on the purchases your already making. For instance, I’ve already earned $50 in Amazon bucks and over $40 in cash back this year. I started this on Dec 26th so look I already have over $90 saved up for my holiday shopping and can take advantage of any deals I should find throughout the year.
First off take advantage of joining the sites I have listed below.
Secondly be sure to use coupons on a regular basis. I do this all the time. Also check your grocery stores as many offer their own coupons and will allow you to use manufacturer coupons with them so extra savings. I live in Florida and we have Publix grocery stores and they allow us to do this. I also know some grocery stores that double coupons too so be sure to take advantage of that as well. Also anytime there is a B1G1 free you can use a coupon on the item your buying and a coupon on the item your receiving for FREE too. For instance your buying 2 boxes of cereal that are B1G1 Free. The boxes are $4.00 each. You would only pay $4.00 but you have 2 coupons that are $1 off a box of cereal. You can use both giving you $2 off the 2 boxes and leaving you only paying $2 for 2 boxes and only $1 each. That’s some crazy savings.
Third be sure to constantly watch sales flyers to find amazing deals. Anytime you find a sale or item on clearance you can use a coupon with it for additional savings. I do this all the time and will stock up on items that are non-perishable. For instance I bought 4 huge bottles of vitamins for my kids today. With the B1G1 Free sale and coupons, I got 4 bottles for the price of 1. This will stock my kids up for 8 months before I have to buy vitamins again. You need to do this so your always stocked up on items you need and it will help to save you lots of $$$ in the long run.
For those of you that Homeschool be sure to look for deals as well. We’re a homeschooling family and I find deal all the time. Some stores such as Michael’s Arts and Crafts offer discounts. LEGOLAND of Florida has homeschool days and you can get entry into the park and a big discounted rate. Just do a search online or ask at stores and restaurants that you visit on a regular basis.
Like I said, be patient as it is a learning process and it will take time. If you stay focused you will find it easier and easier and watch your savings increase. We’re a family of 5 and I homeschool and I can really stretch our dollar and I know you all can as well. Feel free to share this with your friends and family so they can start savings lots of $$$ too.
