We like to be helpful to encourage people to develop their own plan to save and invest on a regular basis. We thought we would present some websites that could be helpful in your search for coupons and coupon codes. Be sure to join our Facebook “Coupons & Coupon Codes” group below. We’ve also added our three (3) basic rules of using coupons effectively.
As always, our advice revolves around these words: “Do your own research; don’t purchase anything you don’t understand.”
Remember the basic rules of coupons and coupon codes:
1. You are not saving if you use coupons or coupon codes for something you don’t actually need. This would mean you find a coupon and get excited about saving money on something you don’t usually purchase or would not have purchased without the coupon.
2. If you don’t look closely at the amount of product your are receiving with the coupon or coupon code deal vs. a non-coupon configuration, you could be participating in something other than saving: marketing.
3. If you don’t actually put the money you “saved” in actual savings, you are not saving anything. Use your savings to push money to actual savings and investing.
You can do this.
HELPING YOUR KIDS GET AHEAD
If you think I was born saving money, you are wrong. My family is filled with hillbillies from Louisiana. There are members of my family that don’t believe in 401ks or IRAs. I was not brought up to save and invest regularly and I have made every mistake you can think about when it comes to money. I have had to learn the absolute hard way how to get savings on track and make it a part of your life without killing your lifestyle. I have had to learn the hard way how companies mislead with marketing. It is my mission to share what I have learned about regularly saving with my own children and also share it with you. That’s why we have a lot of “free” (blogs like http://www.boostmywealth.wordpress.com and http://www.stickyasset.com/blog and groups on Facebook like “Coupons & Coupon Codes”)!
In this country we don’t do enough to teach our children about money, managing money, saving regularly (and automatically), compound interest and steady investing for a long-term future. As a parent, we are always concerned that they get a good education and go to a good college so they can make a lot of money or have a valued career path. The truth is that we could do our children the biggest favor and one of the best things by sharing with them sound saving and investing principles.
You can join our free Facebook group (or have your children do it, too) by searching in the Facebook bar on your “wall” for “Live The Lifestyle Your Family Deserves.” Click on “become a fan.” It’s free and it ties our free blogs into that group.
If you want to give your children the same information we are giving ours, you can purchase the only thing we sell on any of our blogs or groups. It’s called “How To Survive Any Financial Crisis” and you can get it for only $4.95 at http://www.middleclassmoney.com.
Thank you for reading our blog and good luck!
