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. 🙂
