What Makes Me A Super Saver You Ask?

I’ve been challenged to write a post about what makes me a super saver?  The truth is that in 2012 my hubby had lost his job, and we were faced with how to pay our bills on a reduced income.   


As I was searching for job openings online, I happened to come across a blogger who was sharing tips on how to save money. 


The #1 tip that jumped out at me was clipping coupons from the Sunday paper.  


What’s funny about this, is that as a kid, I used to think that my Grams was nuts for using coupons at the store. 


(I guess she knew a thing or two about saving money).  🙂

So, I decided to get a little nutty myself, clips some coupons, and ended up buying 4 bottles of shampoo for only .50 cents each.  I was so excited, because I knew that with a little effort I could help reduce some expenses, and I was hooked.  


Since then, I have become a DIY enthusiast and learned how to grow a garden, can my veggies, and even tile my own bathroom floors. 


(YES, I tiled my own bathroom floors thanks to You Tube)!  🙂

I had learned so much, that I wanted to share my experiences with others and started this blog. 


It’s interesting to me as I reflect back, that blogging became a therapeutic blessing during this difficult time.  I have become an affiliate marketer & influenster who gets the opportunity to try products and services and share my findings with my family, friends, and online community.   

(AND….in some cases I get a little commission fee if someone clicks on my affiliate link and buys a product that I have reviewed.  This is a wonderful perk, because it helps me pay for the upkeep of my blog.  Yay)!


Below are some pics of some products that I have had the wonderful opportunity to try and review.




In closing, I’m glad that I was challenged to write this post, because it’s important to remember why I started this blog to begin with, and I am humbled when visitors take the time to visit my little place on the web.  

I’m also a real, live, social person, who would love to hear your super savings stories or tips, so please comment below.  🙂    

Got Swag? Then Get Paid For It!

Like many of you, I spend more than half of my day online searching for daily deals, signing up for free products, or discovering great D.I.Y. saving ideas.  Today I am sharing with you the only way I know how to get my swag on!  It’s one of my favorite online reward programs that I have personally earned products, gift cards, or some good old-fashioned cash.  My friends, family, and co-workers think it’s funny when I tell them what products or rewards that I received that week, but I also know that they love when I share my goodies with them!  Check out how you can get your swag on, and get paid for it below:   

Swagbucks is a online reward program where you earn “Swagbucks” by clicking on the “earn” tab.  You can answer polls, take surveys, buy one their daily deals, or play games.  They also host Twitter trivia parties, video challenges, or contests.  Swagbucks takes the time to make their rewards program fun, entertaining, and engaging.  This is my favorite place to earn Amazon Gift cards, and help with the cost of my spending habits on Amazon! 🙂




And the best part about Swagbucks is that they keep up with the times!  They now have a mobile app which means you can take your swag with you on the go and score even more savings.  Cha-Ching!    



AND, for all of you Chrome users, you can add the Swagbutton to your bookmark bar, and again rack up some savings as your surfing the net.  



So, here’s to getting your swag on!



Also, just to let ya know that if you click on the above links and decide to give Swagbucks a try, I may get a small commission fee!  Thank you for your continued support of my website.
