Couponing Blogs You Should Follow Today

Savvy shoppers have utilized coupons for ages, and it’s easy to get started. Whether you use the printed version or those available through apps, there are coupons for just about any product or service you can imagine. Couponing allows you to enjoy the lifestyle you like at a lower cost. Who doesn’t like to save?


Now there are even couponing blogs that offer advice, money-saving tips, and couponing options. How do you find the best couponing blog for your needs? Check out these ideas:

Determine what type of coupons you primarily use. If you mainly look for coupons related to products and services for kids, there are plenty of mommy couponing blogs to follow. Check out www.topmommyblogs.com for a list of great blogs to follow. These blogs offer great tips on how to save money and feature special offers and advice. If you’re primarily in the market for grocery coupons, check out a site such as www.grocerycouponnetwork.com, which features 50 blogs related to groceries, home goods, travel, and other family-related items.

Establish how much information you are seeking. Many blogs offer much more than just couponing information. Determine how much other information, such as advice, recipes, informative articles, and even DIY ideas, you are looking for before subscribing to a blog.

Be realistic about how much time you have. With so many couponing blogs out there, subscribing to a few will likely save you money at the register. However, what you save in dollars might cost you in time. Assess how much you are getting from each blog and whether the time you spend engaged in the blogs is worth it in the long run.

Assess a blog’s ties to advertisers and offers. Is the blogger presenting a deal simply because it’s a great deal, or is the blogger financially tied to the company in some way? While the offer might still be a great deal, being aware of compensation is an important piece of information to have.

Couponing blogs to check out:
  • www.coupons.com Has local coupons and coupon codes for online purchase. This site allows you to share coupons with family and friends and offers cash-back offers and loyalty coupons.
  • www.truecouponing.com Offers coupons and deals on products for the home, food, and even silver jewelry. I did notice deals for specific stores, not just manufacturer’s coupons, on this site.
  • www.pennypinchinmom.com This mommy blogger worked her family out of debt, and she is determined to help others save money and live debt free. Her tips could help you!
  • www.thekrazycouponlady.com Offers extreme couponing information.

Also, don’t forget to share this blog - blog.familywize.org - with your family and friends. In addition to advice on issues such as health, wellness, and saving money, the Familywize Prescription Discount Card can help you save at the pharmacy.

How to Save Money This Summer at Your Local Movie Theater

It seems the cost of everything is going up these days!  From prescription medications to groceries to utilities, gasoline, and more!  As I chat with family members and friends, I continually hear how expensive it is to do much of anything beyond paying the bills.  The mere cost of living often prevents many people I know from taking a summer vacation or doing the relaxing activities we all need.  Cut backs aren't just an employment issue, they are a household issue.

So beyond our free prescription discount drug cards, part of what we aim to do at FamilyWize is to provide you with money saving ideas.  I love to share ways on how to save money while doing fun activities for kids, date night with your spouse, day trips with your family and friends!  Each week I will share some ideas I've found, or those you've shared, of simple ways to save money, cut your budget, and plan affordable fun activities - such as....

Summer Movie Theater Discounts and Coupons!
Looking for affordable options for movies in theaters?  Know where free movies at theaters are, as well as other summer movie coupons.
