Sharing this resolution is a natural for me, because…hello…I’m The Coupon Snob!
Learning to use coupons has helped me change the entire course of my family’s financial situation, and ultimately allowed me to be a stay at home Mom. I wish I would have learned to use them sooner! It’s one of the most immediate ways that you can make an impact on your budget.
Today’s Resolution: I will learn to use coupons.
Do you want to do that? I have a couple of different ways to help you accomplish this:
First,you should start with my Using Coupons page, linked up top. It answers some very basic questions, and points you to some recommended reading.
I have a category of posts here on my site that I’ve labelled Coupon Education. I’ve included posts that have some of the basics of couponing, as a way to help you get started.
I also have a Recommended Articles and Series list on my Links tab up top. It has everything from articles on ethical couponing to coupon lingo and also saving in a small town.
Additionally, I also have a page with the main FREE printable coupon sites, so you can instantly begin printing and saving. A specific article that you might want to check out is Understanding Sources of Online Coupons.
My whole site is dedicated to helping people learn to save with coupons, so just dig in and start learning!
Are we ready to win something?
Pin & Win Giveaway:
There are two prizes for this giveaway:
- a free copy of my eBook 100 Ways to Spend Less and Save More
- a $10 CVS gift card
There will be two winners: one for the eBook and one for the gift card. My eBook is a Kindle eBook, but if you don’t have a Kindle you can still read it using one of their free Kindle Reading Apps or their free Cloud Reader (reads in your browser!). Using your email address I will send you a copy of the eBook through Amazon. The gift card will be sent via the U.S. Postal service so the winner (U.S. only!) will need to provide me with their mailing address.
Here’s how to win and claim your prize:
It is very important that you follow these rules exactly so you are officially entered to win. This is a “Pin & Win” giveaway, so you need a Pinterest account to actually enter. I wrote a pretty detailed Pinterest tutorial for any new Pinterest users, but if you don’t want to make an account, you will still have a chance to win a prize by waiting until January 1st when I will have an open giveaway that does not involve Pinterest at all.
Entering involves two steps:
- You must pin today’s resolution to your own board on Pinterest. You can do this one of two ways. You can either visit my pin of today’s resolution and repin that OR click the little “pin it” button right the large graphic below. Note: email & RSS readers of this post will need to click over to the actual post to pin from that button.
- You must post the URL to your pin in the comments below. This is how I will be able to contact the winner, and also helps me know for sure that the first step was completed! Be sure to comment twice if you pinned both, so you can get two entries!
Deadline to enter:
Today’s giveaway opens as soon as this post goes live and closes at 10:00pm EST on Monday, December 31, 2012. I will email the winner (who completed the two steps above), and they will have 48 hours to respond and claim their prize.
So, are we ready?
I know that the whole world of coupons can seem overwhelming, but just start small and work your way up. Take the time to read some articles, and print some coupons to start using. Before long you will be a pro. I promise!
Please join me again tomorrow for another resolution, another resource and yes – another giveaway!!
