If you are new to couponing you may not know where you can go to get those deals or coupons.
First, many people know about the Sunday paper,but that is not all!
There are many sites where you can print coupons. www.coupon.com , www.redplum.com, www.smartsource.com These are a few to start with.
Then Facebook is such a wonderful place to find coupon bloggers. So get a Facebook and start liking pages!
I hope to contact many bloggers to see if I can put their blog info on here so you can just click from my page to theirs! So stay tuned for that!
So now what every marriage needs is a date night to reconnect and just get away from the house or every day life, but how do you do that when you have no money or very little. You do have to decide if you can afford it. If you have to choose between paying a bill and going out to dinner, paying the bill should be your answer! You do not want to get into more debt!!!! That is not what I am talking about.
If you can afford it do it! Just don't pay full price!
I love www.restaurant.com You put in your zip code and then you scroll through a list of restaurants in your area that uses these gift certificates. Now these are at a discount already, but then they run specials where you can get the same certificates for $2,$3,$4 for a $25 gift certificate!!! What a huge discount!!!! Sign up for there emails and you will know right away when they are having these specials.
Here is what I do when I can afford it! I wait till the $2 special, then I stock up! They never expire! I will look up places we may be going soon, like we have friends that live in Las Vegas so I buy some for that area and my area and when we want to go out we can. The only thing is you have to read the fine print! They all have minimum purchase amounts. So most $25 certificates you need to spend $35. Really how hard is that? So you don't drink water with Dinner because you can splurge a little and have tea or soda!
Also you should show your waiter the certificate right away , they need to go call and make sure it is valid. They do add the tip on to the check too. I have never spent more than $20 out of pocket for 4-5 people eating. Not bad for a great meal and of course it is a huge meal.
Another sweet trick is there are website that give you cash back on online purchases. One is http://www.shopathome.com Sign up for this site then look around and find your favorite stores, do your normal shopping, hopefully using a promo code, and then you get cash back. I haven't had the money yet to actually buy anything, but I have seen so many people make a lot of money on the stuff they have to buy anyway, clothes, books, all kinds of stuff and I just found out that Restaurants.com is on here too so I will be checking that out very soon!
I know there is more but I am getting very tired and I should clean up the kitchen still and do all my bed time chores so I can go to bed!
