I so need one of these. One of the easiest ways I've found to save money is to take my lunch and drinks to work. It's also usually healthier for me.

My money saving tip: Organize your menu and shopping so you do all your errands on one day! With gas the way it is I can't run out every day to get something I forgot so I have to be on top of it!
I would love this couponizer...my system is a MESS!

My money-saving tip is to plan your week's menu based on the loss leaders on the front of your grocery ad. If it's pork chops, chicken, whatever is the big sale--that's what you're eating this week!

My money saving tip is invite friends over to hang out instead of going out (or have your own date night at home)

Tasha Via said...

Money Saving Tip: Being patient. I know, cheesy, but it's true. Wait for the sales to get what you need in order to match your coupon for the sale. Not just for groceries but clothes and craft supplies too=)

Thanks for this give-away! I love couponing but I love organizing even more=)

Dahris said...

I forgot my money saving tip....get CFL bulbs in every light! We have noticed a significant savings.

Courtney said...

Here are some way we've been lowering our electric bill. We try to use only sunlight during the day. We use portable fans that blow side to side and try to only run our air conditioner during the seriously hot hours of the day. Even our kids are on board with shutting off lights that aren't being used. We couldn't ditch the night light while the kids sleep (although it's seriously low wattage). But aside from that, we've saved quite a bit of money. Oh, and we also use energy saving light bulbs. Even if it's only saving cents sometimes, you know you'd do it if those cents were in the form of a coupon! ;)

We have a Vacation Fund can that we throw our loose change and dollar bills in throughout the year.

We stopped eating out so much, more for healthy lifestyle changes but it's saved us money too.

Thanks for the chance to enter.

Centsible Mommy said...

My money saving tips are to not spend it. I know that sounds simplistic, but I've noticed if I make fewer trips and avoid going to the store just to look around..that I spend so much less in a weeks time. Another tip is not to be brand loyal...buy items that you might normlly not use when their on sale or if you have coupons

brightleigh said...

This would be great. A great moneysaver for us is meal planning depending what is on sale that week. robandleighbright@suddenlink.net

katherine said...

Lacy said...

My best money saver of this summer would have to be my clothesline! I have saved an average of $50/month on our electric bill by simply hanging our clothes out to dry!

Heather H said...

My biggest money saving tip is to save all your reciepts for at least a few months, you never know when some cool rebate will come along that you already have bought the items for. This is especially true in our state since a beer purchase isnt required for the beer rebates. Its free money!!

ihchicky said...

My money saving idea is to coupon clip. Stack coupons whenever possible. Also, start a group with your friends or find an online group that allows you to trade coupons and join coupon trains. Also, try and combine your coupons with store sales and price match.

branmav said...

money saving tip...always check the reduced rack at cvs/walgreens and your favorite grocery stores...matching reduced items with coupons make for even better deals =)

Money-Saving Tip: Plan your menu with whatever is on sale by cross-referencing local adds and your coupons. Then make your grocery list. Also, pay with cash and you can't spend more than you planned to at the grocery.

livingmyhappilyeverafter said...

Tip: |I buy hamburger helper when It is on sale foe .00 a box or less. Then I couple the sale with $.80/3 q's from betty crocker . com... making 3 boxes 2.20! We stock up also try just using half the serving of meat when you cook it. Saves money and food! and you still get filled up! Yummie! I would love to win that Couponizer.

Robin said...

I guess an appropriate tip would to have your coupons organized and DON'T FORGET THEM!!

Other than that...I plan our meals based on what is for sale that week. I also stock up on frequently used items when they are on sale.

We also eat lots of left overs...

The Coupon Bin said...

Talk to the butcher at your different local grocery stores. He will tell you which days they put stickers on the meat for 50% off, and he can also separate meat into smaller packages if you have a smaller family. This can be pretty effective too if you are trying to use coupons on the meat! 50% off meat is usually on or right before the sell by date, so take it home and cook it right away, or stick it in the freezer!

scgirl816@gmail.com

Thanks!

Jenna said...

Oh how I need this! As for my tip for saving-When you have coupons, look at what stores have current sales going on etc. and match them with the coupons to get a better price...I've gotten somethings close to free doing this~

MamaFeelgood said...

I make my own fabric softener using vinegar and I make my own Downy Wrinkle Release.

Natasha said...

I would LOVE one of these, I've been a coupon addict since my son was born and things got a bit tighter! Tips: When I heat up the over for supper, I make sure I don't waste the energy. I make extra portions (chicken, porkchops, w/e) and use them in lunches for the rest of the week. You can also then re-freeze the cooked items, and just throw them in the microwave to reheat. As for what I'm cooking, I always shop the "big deals" that the stores offer to get you in, and make sure I stick to the list of sales that I went in for - no "Oh, that look's good" last minute pickups that aren't on sale. Every penny helps!

Julie said...

What a great idea, I would love to win this and have all my coupons organized. A money saving tip is to borrow movies from your library. They are free, and the kids are excited to see a new movie.

Theresa said...

Hi,
You have a great site. I would love to win this gift. I am just getting back into couponing and I am not a very organized person, so this would be just what I need to get organized. One way I save money is by checking out my favorite coupon site blogs and what deals they are posting of things on sale and coupons available. This helps me with store deals I might have missed in the paper. I don't leave home with out checking my favorite sites.

Theresa said...

Hello, Great gift. I would love to win this. I am not a very organized person, so this would be wonderful to have. One of my tips for saving money is to take time to check out my favorite coupon blog sites for coupons and store ads before I leave to go shopping. There are many times I think I have all the info. on what is on sale or what coupons are available and then I check out money saving blogs and find out I can save even more money.

Chasity said...

How much fun!! I am new to all of this and would love a better way to organize my coupons!!

seesawstar said...

My money tip is to get creative. Old stuffed animals that people throw out can replace the expensive dog toys. Containers from instant meals can be reused for storage around the house. "Orphan" lids can be used as carrying trays, or dirt-catchers.

Thanks for entering me.

icunursemicki said...

my tip: find a small convenience store, go Monday morning and offer them a few dollars for the coupon inserts from their left over Sunday paper. I usually get 10-15 for $5 and the store does not have to have the inserts to get reimbursed for the paper :)

JohannaB said...

I'm new to couponing. For now I use the computer at the library where I work and I can't print out online coupons. I'm hoping to buy a laptop and printer so I can take advantage of coupon offers. I use a paper clip to hold my coupons and could use a system before they get out of hand.

EG said...

My money-saving tip: know what things cost at different stores. For example, the granola bars we like are cheaper at Target than at Kroger. So although I can't pick them up with the rest of my groceries, I'll be near Target eventually and can get them then.

my money saving tip is to freeze your leftovers in single meal size portions and then pack them for work or school. My husband always takes our frozen leftovers and throws them in his backpack for school. By the time he can eat lunch the food has thawed enough that he can throw it into the microwave for just a minute or 2 and he has a yummy, healthy lunch.

My tip is to buy your gas at a Kum and Go station on Sunday and get a FREE newspaper.

Diana said...

Wow, I would love this! I left my coupons in a cart and went back and it was gone about a month ago. Boy am I lost without it. I am now using envelopes and this doesn't work so well. My money saving tip would be to make sure you take your coupons with you where ever you go because you never know when you are going to see a grat deal.

Neat coupon tool!! Please enter me in the contest.
Money saving tip: Buy what you will USE. It is easy to get caught up in good deals and have a big stash of "extras" in the closet that never get used. Of course, if you are making money on a coupon (coupon is for more than the product is priced) then give the product away to someone who will use it.

Jessica said...

I want it! Me, me, me!
Money saving tip- Keep all coupons whether you think you need them or not. I learned the hard way- last week, I only had kept one Finesse coupon. If I had kept the others that I had, I would have gotten free shampoo after rebate at Rite-Aid.

money saving tip: keep coupons organized!! i have missed out on so many deals just because i wasn't organized.

Yvonne said...

Thanks for the chance!! My money saving tip is buying store brand items. I'm not saying convert all items you buy from the grocery store to generic but converting to some doesn't hurt. You'd be surprised at the savings.

Jami said...

Buy lots of milk when it's on sale and freeze what you can't use right away. Our Costco has milk about half price as all the stores, but it's not convenient for me to go there more than once a month, so I generally buy 6 to 8 gallons and freeze them up. Works great.

Gomathi said...

just be simple. don't ever get anythin unless and until you really need it. just because a product is cheap and is on sale why should you get those if you really don't need them? to me coupons are good only if you get it for an essential item. best way to save your money is use a CFL bulb instead of the normal ones and try using a dimmer switch . it is really effective .

chad and chrissy said...

I don't have many money saving tips, which is why I need to win, but one I do know about is to buy off brand products. Thanks !

cxt0k33(at)yahoo.com

katy said...

Alwyas check the price of store brand products. Even when the name brand is on sale and I have a coupon, it's sometimes still a better value to buy the regular priced store brand.

Anonymous said...

My money saving tip: take your used plastic grocery sacks and roll them up and stuff them in empty tissue boxes. hen I take a box with me each time I go to the store and I get .05 off for each one that I use. Since most of my stores are self-checkout I can load my groceries in my bags and it doesn't throw the weight on the table off! I also hang them on my pantry door and use them as little garbage bags. Our trash is required to be in a plastic city bin for pick up and this cuts down on the amount of trash bags that I have to use. We used to change the bag every other day and now we change it every other week!

My tip is to keep all your coupons organized in folders by month with the date written on each flyer. My other tip is to ask your spouse who may work at a business to bring home the coupons from Sunday's paper on Monday -before they get thrown out! I got two coupons for free bread this way.

Hi,

Money saving tip: take a quick inventory of your freezer and fridge (pantry too, if time permits) before grocery shopping. You will see what needs to be used. Sorry if this seems like something everyone would know to do but I just used it myself for the first time last week! :) I'd love to have the couponizer!

My money saving tips:

Go to the recycle bin and dig out some extra coupons!

Renee said...

My tip: Make do or do without!

Erin said...

My friend has one of those coupon organizers and they are awesome! I'm totally jealous!

My money saving tip is to get all the fruits and vegetables frozen, canned, dried or whatever else I can do to them while they are available. Most times I can save money from my friends or family having gardens and they just want to get rid of the stuff. Healthy and money saving!

Therapy Mom said...

Money saving tip: Browse blogs for ideas on items that are on sale and have coupon match. Buy only when on sale and coupon match. Don't buy things you don't normally buy. Plan a month long menu so you can be thinking ahead for deals on meat/chicken/pork...keep freezer stocked!
I'd love a little extra organizing help!

Lindsay said...

I'd looove one of these! I've had my eye on them for awhile! :) My money saving tip: Stockpile, stockpile, stockpile! And barter with friends for things you need! :)

Also: I love to keep a bucket in the tub to collect water while the shower is heating up- then I use it for watering my plants!

miou said...

I need some coupon organization!
My favorite way to save money is to only eat out on free "kids night" or if we have a super coupon. We don't eat out that much, but sometimes we need a change of scenery!

My money saving tip may sound a little strange, but for those of you who have to wear pantyhose for work this may save you some money. I usually get a run in only one leg of my panty hose, so when I have two pairs with a run in one leg, I cut off the leg with the run about mid-thigh and put them on one over the other. you end up with two waistbands on, but nobody can tell. my e-mail is: npatmills@yahoo.com

I save more by combining coupons with sale items, and always trying to use competitor coupons at my store! I would LOVE one of these - thanks!!

the4moyers said...

Wow - great giveaway! I'm not sure if this is necessarily a money-saving tip, but I really try to involve my husband in my coupon-clipping and saving strategies. He helps me clip the coupons and goes through my file and clears out expired ones for me. This is a huge help to me and he is always so curious when I come home from a shopping trip having saved up towards 50% off my total! I'd really love to try this organizer! Thanks for offering it!

I love using cleaning wipes, especially the Kirkland brand from Costco (I ran out the other day and realized I had forgotten how to clean without them:) but sometimes I just need a small piece, not a whole wipe so I keep a scissors nearby and cut it in half.

Tammy said...

Money saving tip-- To get more for your money when buying dryer sheets, take them out of the dryer after clothes are done and use them for a quick dusting around the house! They grab and catch the dust and helps you to dust less often! Gives a second chance to those dryer sheets before throwing them out! My fingers are crossed, hope i win!

Money saving tip, start looking into living a less chemical-dependant lifestyle & being more ecologically conscious, as long as you don't buy into the "buy green" hype, and go for truely natural you end up realizing how many "needs" we don't need, and are actually better w/o, and how many things can be made at home for pennies!

brittlynn44 said...

I agree with the stockpile mentality. It goes a long way! In addition, baby saving tips include: cut baby wipes in half, use towels to wipe messes up instead of diaposable paper, dilute toddlers/babies juice or simply give them water(too much sugar will interfere with developing tastebuds anyways),and use a baby brush or loofah in the tub! A dollap of soap goes much further when something suds it up and kids LOVE to play with them!

brittlynn44 said...

(Forgot e-mail first time!!!)
Other than stockpiling...if you have a baby try to: cut wipes in half, dilute juice or give water(toddlers are just as happy and developing tastebuds don't need extra sugar anyways) and use a loofah and baby brush in the bathtub...a dollap of soap goes a long way with one and kids LOVE to play with them!

Great Giveaway ;-) My money Saving Tip: I buy our snacks in bulk then divide into single servings using the snack size baggies. You can also use small squares of Cling Wrap to save even more. This prevents overeating and makes packing lunches easy! Some examples - carrot and celery sticks, trail mix, grapes, cookies, crackers, chips, nuts, cheese cubes or small slices, red and yellow pepper slices, cherry tomatoes, raisens, endless applications.

I just saw an ad for one of these and thought it looked fabulous and exactly what I need!

My money saving tip is that I plan my errands for the morning, (when deals are good in my area) and right after I drop off my older girls for school. Then I only have 1 with me begging for the extra items not on my list. It would be nice to win this so my youngest could "help" me.

I bought four of the 1.77 All You magazines from Wal Mart( so many wonderful coupons)but I used the 4 coupons for buy 3 kraft products for each, and get free salad dressing, crystal light, cheese slices, wheat thins and hot dogs, so I spent 12.00 on koolaid and saves 69.00 on the others. I sure could use the couponizer as I am trying to save money to be able to feed my family of 7 mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, and 3 beautiful girls, 14, 10 (adopted) and a 3year old after my husband took a large paycut to move us to a great area to raise our family.

I used to work at a hardware store..and across the street was a grocery store..to save money on lunch..I would go to the deli..buy one croisant, 2 slices of turkey and a slice of cheese. I would use the free packets of mayonaise or mustard and I would buy a small 8 oz carton of milk. Lunch. $0.80, sometimes less! And it was delicious! Please enter me!

One type I have for saving money is to make a list before I go to the grocery store and stick only to that list. Also, google coupons before you buy anything Online. You can usually find a coupon code! I would love to have one of these!

I would love to win one of these. I am terrible about organizing and its just because I just don't have a very good concept.

I've cut my grocery bill from $125/week to about $50/week in the past two months using coupons and learning to combine them with BOGO deals, buy those really good coupons (BOGO coupons for lifesavers were awesome and earned me $40 at CVS) --- I use ECBs primarily to buy milk so that I'm getting the other stuff sorta free with my milk (as much as possible though the past few weeks have been sorta stingy with CVS) ... and I stop at stores on my way to other places whenever possible - makes up for going to more than more one store which used to be my routine...

Katrine said...

My money saving tip is using 1/2 of the meat that the recipe calls for. It's usually more healthy for you that way also. centsational@live.com

My money saving tip - unplug your microwave when you are not using it.

A simple savings tip for Entertainment: No more renting movies...instead share movies with your friends & neighbors of similiar interests. Or if you really like to see movies on the BIG screen, but want to save, see if your local theatre has a early-bird special or a last show special.

Thanks so much for hosting this giveaway! My best frugal tip is to plan ahead...meals, shopping for new seasons/sizes, and knowing what you already have. all easier said than done but worth it.

Great contest! I'd love one of these. My money saving tip is to buy meat in large quantities when it is on sale for a really great price. I vacuum seal the meat and freeze for up to a year! It still tates fresh and wonderful whenever I pull it out of the freezer- and I know I'm never having to pay too much, especially when guests come over for dinner & I want to serve something nice.

Kelly said...

My tip is make a menu every week and it saves less trips to the store.

The Frugal Homemaker said...

I would say my favorite tip is to price match the best prices in your area all at one store. That way you can get all the great prices without spending extra time or money to drive all around town.

Thanks!

I cut my dryer sheets in half--works just fine. Thanks for the contest!

Carolyn said...

I bring all my grocery store ads to Walmart and they match the price!

When you go grocery shopping, try to stay around the perimeter of the store. The perimeter contains most everything you NEED and none of high priced items you don't need.

Print your own greeting cards. You can buy prescored cardstock at Wal-Mart, Staples, OfficeMax, etc. I got enough for 50 cards for about $10. Then their are lots of sites where you can customize and print predesigned cards. (I always find the FREE ones on American Greetings site. Some sites charge a nominal monthly fee.)

Thanks for the contest. I could really use one of these. My coupons are stuffed in a folder right now.

Add a pump to all your shampoo and soap bottles. This saves tons if you have kids.

My tip: Check your local freecycle group for anything durable before buying it!

Freecycle is a non-profit organization devoted to keeping useful stuff out of landfills by using the internet to connect people with stuff they don't need any longer with people who want it. For example, when my landlord bought a new snowblower, he didn't need the old one, and didn't want the hassle of finding a buyer or taking it to the dump. I posted it for him on Freecycle, and a fellow who was thrilled to have a free snowblower picked it up, leaving my landlord happy that it was all taken care of for him.

Since items have to be phyiscally picked up, Freecycle is organized into small geographic groups, usually by city (for example, New Haven, CT). The groups are on Yahoo, so you'll need to join Yahoo if you're not a member, then check www.freecycle.org to find the group(s) in your area.

I regularly see furniture, small appliances, hardware and tools, and various household sundries listed. Paperbacks, videos, toys, and clothes get listed frequently, too. Even pricey items like sewing machines and refrigerators get listed a few times a year.

Check the listing history to get a sense if what you're looking for is generally offered. When we were looking for a desk chair, I set my Yahoo notices to go to my email box, and set my email to generate a pop-up notice for the word "chair" in a Yahoo Freecycle post. Result? Someone posted a chair, I responded quickly, and we have a free desk chair we're still using 3 years later.

Sarina said...

before you plan your shopping trip go to http://searchalldeals.com/ and type in the item you want to find a coupon on. It's a one stop shop that tracks deal information across all the savings sites.

My tip: Buy a bunch of cheap wash clothes and use them in place of paper towels and napkins. Better for the enviornment too.

My tip- use the library to get movies instead of Netflix or renting them. nicole_fillion03@yahoo.com

Kirsten said...

What a wonderful prize to give away to money conscious moms! My tip - we have been unplugging small appliances and chargers when they are not in use as well as turning off the computer and unplugging the main printer.

lawanaguy said...

Wow, I have read about this and would love to have one. I am awful with coupons.

Elizabeth said...

I'd love to win this! Clipping coupons saves us lots of money, but the coupons are often a mess.

Money saving tip: keep a bowl in ktichen for loose change from purse or husbands pocket to save for sleepaway camp for kid. SHows kids how to save as well.

Alisa said...

Frugal Tip: If a recipe calls for more than 1 jar of pasta sauce (like for a baked ziti or something), use 1 jar of pasta sauce and 1 small can of tomato sauce (like the kind that is used in chili). You can get these on sale for about $0.25 which is a whole lot cheaper than buying a whole other jar of pasta sauce! You can't taste any difference!

Visit your local library!! Why not borrow books and movies for free (or a small fine if it's returned late). Instead of paying $12-15 per book, put that money in a little jar for every book you read. Then spend that money on something you need (or have been wanting for a long time) or a mini vacation!!

My old coupon holder has bit the dust, so this would be welcome!

I heard somewhere that you save a lot of money shopping alone (sans hubby and kids). You can also save money by shopping with a buddy to split cheaper larger portions up with or utilize the buy 2 coupons.

Money saving tip:
Only but what you need! Stay home more, I am job hunting and it is amazing how I hardly spend any money because we are staying home! I am getting a lot of quality time with my children also. Oh, and this coupon organizer would be an awesome addition for my home to help with the "coupon Madness Mess"! Thanks for doing a give a way!

My favorite tip... Store coupon + BOGO + Manufacturer coupon(s) = & savings. Another favorite... want to stop using fabric softener or dryer sheets? Use white vinegar in the rinse water - does a much better job and saves lots of $$$

Chava (the "C" is silent) said...

What what a great kit. Money saving tip is make a list gather coupons from everywhere you can (paper, online, friends) and stick to your list when you get to the store. Don't venure into other aisles.

Monica said...

If you shop online, use ebates.com and you will get money back on your purchases. They send you a check every 3 months. If you shop online, might as well get paid to do it! If you shop alot online especially during the holidays, this website will save you money.

Julie said...

This would really help since I have 4 kids that eat ALOT

txcharley said...

On the "BIG DAY" when I do LOADS of laundry, I put a capful of liquid fabric softener in a cup and fill it with water. Then I soak a washcloth in this mixture and throw it in the dryer with my clothes!! Less waste and after about three loads you just need to re-wet the washcloth and it still works great!

Daisy Paige said...

I'm not great at couponing yet (although I have already made money on three items in the last month!) but my money-saving trip is to price-match at your local Wal-Mart. I started doing this months ago when my son was born, and it's amazing how much time and gas money I save! I'll still head over to Smith's maybe twice/month to buy chicken and some produce.

Thank you for the chance to win!

This looks like an awesome prize. Coupon organizers are a great asset to have when you clip lots of coupons like me.

To save money, I compare my weekly store sale ads to the coupons I have on hand and the store I go to doubles my coupons so I get these items for little to no money at all.
