Who wants to see me on "Extreme Couponing"????

I would REALLY like to get on the show and show off my mad couponing skills! LOL! In fact, my main goal will be to show people how they realistically can coupon and save money yet:
  • Save product on the shelves for others
  • Not go overboard
  • Be realistic about savings and how to get coupons
I need to beef up this blog along with my Save With Me Facebook Page. Please send your friends over to "Like" my page! Ideally, I'd like to have around 500 people following the page. I know this is going to be tough, but I really need it to look GREAT for my application.

To make it fun, I am willing to send a FREE coupon starter kit to the person who sends the most people over to "Like" my page. Tell them to mention your name on the wall and I will keep track.

Thanks so much!!


The perfect time to talk about...EBATES!

So I keep reading posts on other blogs about ebates this, ebates that and I have come to the conclusion that it's a GOOD thing!

Go to and sign up - SUPER SUPER easy. You just enter your email and a password.  When you start to shop online (which is why this is the time of year to do this), you get cash back! Literally. They will either pay you via check, paypal, or send the money to a charity of your choice.

For example, I just bought something from the other day for Black Friday. Had I gone through the Ebates website, I could have earned 4% back in CASH on what I purchased! Why not?

So head on over to Ebates and make some MONEY while you shop!!

Saving $ on Baby Stuff

Today’s blog is all about saving money on BABY goods. I must say that shows like “Extreme Couponing” can really jazz you up to grab some coupons and go crazy. I thought the best thing to do for you all is provide my personal opinion on where to buy baby stuff CHEAP!

First and foremost, we are all moms, so saving money on diapers and wipes is the way to go. I can honestly say that is, by far, the best place to shop for diapers and wipes. When you sign up for Amazon Mom, you automatically get nice discounts on our diapers, wipes and other items that are used on a daily basis with a child. I suggest signing up for Amazon Mom as well as “Subscribe & Save” when you checkout.

Here’s the deal, you will not have to pay anything extra to “Subscribe & Save”. Basically, you are signing up for Amazon to send you diapers, wipes, etc monthly, every 3 mos, 6 mos, or whatever is best for you. The secret here is that you can also click “Subscribe & Save” and also cancel as soon as you place your order.

I would like to also talk about Amazon Prime. This is a great deal if you use Amazon to purchase a lot of things. What you can do is pay around $20 to join – per year. This gives you 100% FREE shipping plus 2-3 day turnaround and delivery on anything marked “Prime”. You will know it’s a prime item as it is marked with a check mark and says Prime after it. Here’s an example: Notice after the price, there is a check mark and it says “Prime”. Anything marked as such is included in the free shipping category. I buy a LOT of stuff from Amazon and this saves me quite a bit of money.

So let me breakdown what I buy and how much I pay for it so you will know what kind of savings I’m getting. (I will include the links)

So truthfully, Amazon is a great place to think about buying things you need for your little ones and for your family. Look around and see what you can find that might help you save a little money. Amazon does not take manufacturer’s coupons, but their prices can easily beat what you would pay in retail stores.

If you have any questions, please feel free to comment on the blog and I will be happy to answer!

Happy Shopping!
