Coupon Lesson: Why is it NOT Beneficial to buy/sell/trade Coupons Online?

A few years ago if some one was talking about a coupon, it was probably a “grandma” who was saving an extra dollar on food for her cat. (Sorry to be so stereotypical!) Now though, if there is mention of coupons, the words could be coming from a college student, a young mother, a middle-class working person, heck almost anyone!…

Price Matching: To do or Not to Do?

There’s been a lot of heated discussion about the latest “steal of a deal” going on in the world of price matching. Dollar General currently has a deal for $9.50 for a package of Pampers diapers, any size, any count.  The image included with this is a jumbo package of diapers, the bag kind, because a majority of Dollar General…

Free Toothbrushes or Fraudulent Couponing?

Many people have been speaking about all of their “free” toothbrushes they’ve been getting lately because of the awesome high-value $2/1 Reach toothbrush multipack, but some of those purchases, while free, were also FRAUD. The number one definition for the term fraud in the dictionary is: deceit, trickery, sharp practice, or breach of confidence, perpetrated for profit or to gain some…

Are you part of the NCP Team?

No, I didn’t just put some random letters as the title of my post, those letters mean something. NCP stands for the National Consumer Panel. What is it? NCP is a program that requires you to scan your store purchases each week, then you transmit them to the company. It’s a FREE program that you can participate in and they…

A Guide for your Toilet Paper Needs

I get asked a LOT about toilet paper at my classes, more times than I can count. Trying to explain how to calculate toilet paper though; it’s a daunting task. I’m not saying I understand the process, I totally get it. I know how to do all the math and what-not, but trying to go into depth about the whole…

Categorizing Coupons-How I find my Coupons at the Store

One of the most popular questions I get asked at my classes is… How do I categorize my coupons? Honestly, I put them into different categories based on what is easiest for me to find. When I first started couponing, I didn’t want to have 20 different sections for my non-perishable items, so instead of a lot of little sub…

An new twist on an old Adventure

Our household consists of four children: a 10-year-old boy, two 6 1/2-year-old girls and a 19 month old little boy. I almost assumed that our 10-year-old had decided he was too old for the hunts, but all of my kids are pretty smart, they never pass up the opportunity for FREE, no matter what it is, and an egg hunt…

The World’s Toughest Job–Surprisingly, 24 people Applied

A company decided to post an ad for a job with the title  “Director of Operations”.

Although it turned out to be a prank, no one knew until the end.

There was a pretty intense list of requirements for the position:

• Standing up almost all the time
• Constantly exerting yourself
• Working from 135 to unlimited hours per week
• Degrees in medicine, finance and culinary arts necessary
• No vacations
• The work load goes up on Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s and other holidays
• No time to sleep
• Salary = $0

Although the ad received attention from 2.7 million, only 24 people inquired. They interviewed via webcam, and their real-time reactions were captured on video.

Make sure to watch the video until the end. It will definitely hit home.
