No clipping? You can still save!

Want to save money and start couponing but feel like you have no time? This one is for you, my friend! Put down those scissors. Today, I am going to explain a few of the easiest way to use digital coupons. I am sure many of you lead extremely busy lives. When living a busy life, it can be hard to find time to even pick up the Sunday paper. You definitely don't have time to clip coupons, organize them, and remember to take them to the store. This is why printable coupons and loyalty card coupons are so convenient and perfect for you to utilize! 

If you know what you are planning to buy at the store, you can head to SmartSource or coupons.com to print coupons that match the items already on your shopping list. The majority of the coupons you will find on these sites are manufacturer coupons which are not store specific and can be redeemed at almost any store. Great news! 


Another easy way to save, without having to clip or print, is to load coupons onto your store store specific loyalty card. When your card is scanned at the store, the coupons are applied to your purchase. Here are a few of my local grocery stores that offer loyalty card coupons to customers:
Harris Teeter: e-vic coupons 
Bi-lo:  e-coupons 
Lowes Foods: digital coupons
Food Lion: e-coupons

If you shop at Target, I recommend checking out Cartwheel. This app can be downloaded and used directly from your phone. The app has scanning capabilities so you don't have to search for specific deals. I recommend shopping as you normally would at Target and scanning all the items in your shopping cart before checking out. This way, you are not buying products you don't need or weren't planning on purchasing. When you scan an item, if there is a Cartwheel offer, it will pop up and you can click add to add it to your barcode. All you have to do at checkout is provide the barcode to the cashier for them to scan and apply your savings. 

Put the scissors down and use technology. After all, it is the 21st century.

Frugal Cruising Tips

Frugal Fiancée: First Week of Engagement

Hi frugal friends! Guess what?! Last Saturday, my boyfriend of 6 (almost 7) years popped the question. I have decided that this would be a great opportunity to share some frugal wedding planning tips and tricks. In college, I worked for an event planner and saw first hand how much money is spent on weddings. After throwing away over $4,000 in flowers one night, I knew there had to be a way to cut down on wedding costs. During this wedding planning period, I am going to do my best to find ways to help you stay within your wedding budget when it's your turn. Here is the first of many in my "Frugal Fiancée" series. 

Before I start to share tips and tricks, I will summarize how the first week of this engagement has gone for me. This has been a crazy week but I am also grateful for all the positive support we have received. 

After the proposal on Saturday night (which took place in my favorite spot on Wrightsville Beach, NC), I began to tell my close friends and family. Some pe…

Western Caribbean, I'm coming for you!

I'm falling off of the social media map for a week. I will be spending my Spring Break cruising around the Western Caribbean. While I'm gone, you guys should check out Groupon and Living Social to possibly plan your next vacation. (I didn't use either of these to plan my trip, but they have great deals!) These sites offer discounted prices on goods, dining, events, and travel!  Groupon Getaways Living Social Escapes
Also, sign up for PINCHme. Once a member, you will have the ability to request a PINCHme box approximately every other Tuesday around noon (they will email you with reminders). Once you receive the box with your products, test them and take a survey to rate each item. This is an easy and awesome way to try out new products!
