USA Weekend Video Clip of Me Talking About Saving with Coupons!!

USA Weekend paid a visit to my house back in June to capture the story of how couponing has saved me thousands of dollars a year!

They did a photo shoot and I am the cover of USA Weekend on Sunday, July 31. To see what newspaper in your state will carry the USA Weekend insert, click on this link.

They also did a video shoot on the story for their website. Click here to view the USA Weekend video shoot of me explaining how coupons have saved me money!

Happy New Year!! Time to coupon!!

I have to admit this is the second year in a row that I have taken the Holidays off from couponing. I am still collecting coupons, just not meticulously cutting out each one and filing in my coupon binder. I am living off of my stockpile that I have acquired throughout the past year. Another reward from stockpiling is that you can take a little vacation from shopping during otherwise busy times of your life!

So, I have been slacking in my posts here and on my Facebook Page MAKING CENTS TOGETHER. I have enjoyed the Holidays, and hope you have as well.

But, with the New Year comes new resolutions! After all the spending during the Holidays for gifts and extra expenses, it is time to buckle down and start saving again! Time to clean out the old expired coupons and start fresh!

If you need advice on how to get started, please feel free to ask me!

Happy New Year and Happy Savings!
