my mama taught me right

My mama taught me right. Although, I feel that statement isn't using good grammar, I still wrote it anyway and since it's my blog, I can use bad grammar if I want to, right? You see, growing up my mom was the coupon cutter, money saver, penny pincher of the family. I remember sitting at the kitchen table watching her cut out coupons. 9 times out of 10, she wouldn't buy something unless it was on sale. I used to get embarrassed when we'd be in public and she would use a coupon to purchase something. Don't ask me why I was embarrassed, but I was. My dad on the other hand, didn't need a coupon or a sale to make a purchase. I loved that about him, haha. If he wanted it, he bought it. He didn't make irrational purchases either, he just bit the bullet and bought the item.

The older I get, I realized how my mother made an impact in my life. Why not save a buck or two? My goodness, who doesn't LOVE to say money? In my book, it is NOW cool to use coupons at the grocery store, resturants, etc. :) When I get a great deal on something, I am more likely to "brag" about the good deal than saying I bought it full price. Who doesn't like a love a good deal?

Well, the past 2 years I have really embraced coupons and look for them on the internet, papers and receive emails with coupons. I came across this website that is AMAZING. It lets you know about EVERY HOT DEAL going on.... from groceries, to clothing, to toys, etc. It's AMAZING. Did I say that already? I actually just purchased my mom's christmas gift after looking at this website and finding this AMAZING deal.

I am going to be a good blogger friend and share the website with you, in hopes that you too, will find some use out of this AMAZING website.

Once you enter the site, just continue to scroll down. There can be up to 10 posts in one day about different money saving deals. I hope you find this website helpful and money saving for your family! I just love it!!!

HAPPY SAVING!

I'm the same way, too! When I was a kid, both my parents were going back to school to change careers and didn't have as much money. I hated having to wait for sales and buy things off season. Now I think trying to get the best deal feels really good!
