Learn Our System

With a 3 part system called “Couponing your Way” you take the elements of guesswork out of couponing like:

  • Where do I get my coupons?
  • How do I choose a supermarket?
  • How do I use my coupons?
  • Etc. (I promise there are more questions than these)

Couponing can be overwhelming when you don’t have a strategy. “Couponing your Way” lets you form a strategy that will fit your lifestyle. You can save a ton of money and value your time with couponing IF you have a system in place.

Coupons are cash; you are actually getting​ real​ dollars off the things you buy, the restaurants you go to, the things you like to do! (In my case, play tennis). What you will learn is to be savvy with your money and have fun doing it. We all, no matter what our background is, love to save money. I want to give you tools to take couponing to a whole new level.

Step 1: Analyze and Customize.

Life doesn’t stop. There are things happening all the time, sometimes even at the same time. It is very hard to keep track of everything, and without a system, many things fall through the cracks. The system I devised for my household helped me get a clearer picture: I am the pilot and I have a “control panel” in front of me. Just by looking at all the components of my household I can now have all the data necessary to adjust anything I need to.

In order to form my “control panel” I have to ask myself some questions:

  • How big is my household? (Pets definitely are part of the household. Sugar and Chachi made sure I put that in)
  • What is my weekly budget?
  • How do I arrive at a weekly budget?
  • Do I want to do charity or help somebody?
  • What kinds of foods does my family consume?
  • How much time can I dedicate to getting my shopping trips ready?
  • Where am I going to store my items and is my kitchen prepared?
  • Why do you want to coupon? Finding your why. Making goals.

We will add more as we go and discuss each one thoroughly in order to arrive at real numbers. Many years ago, in the ‘70s to be exact, there was a TV show called​ “The Six Million Dollar Man” starring Lee Majors (What a hunk! I was a teenager back then.). At the beginning of the show, it always showed the six million dollar man being scanned in this virtual machine (like they do now at the airports, by the way) to make sure all his body parts were in good workingorder. This is how we have to view our couponing strategy and I am here to help you do just that!

Step 2: Couponing 101

Here is the fun part! In this section, you will learn:

  • It’s not what you buy, it’s when.
  • Couponing terms you need to know
  • How to choose a supermarket and drugstore so you don’t run yourself ragged chasing all the deals out there.
  • How to set up your shopping list.
  • How to choose the right cashier (Body Language 101)
  • Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference!
  • Teach others and share your knowledge. (In other words, make an impact.)
  • Where to get coupons.
  • How to make it all comes together (In other words, who needs a hundred toothbrushes!)

Having this great resource of couponing (especially in the state of Florida), allows for so many rewards in our daily lives that there is no reason to not dive in and do it. It’s easy, it’s fun and the concepts you learn can be used in any area of your life! (I gave a coupon card to my husband for Valentine’s Day with coupons he can use throughout the year! Yes, they are ​ private coupons I made up!). This is a game of knowing what to do and where to get the resources (coupons) to do it with. I have been on this journey for 6 years and it has only gotten better! The stakes are high and the rewards are great as we will see in the next step. At this point, I would like to encourage you to take this step by step. Just like any other endeavor, there are going to be blunders and breakthroughs. I remember when I learned how to snow ski. I thought to myself, it’s just getting on the ski lift, going to the top of the mountain and the natural incline of the mountain will propel me down smoothly on my brand new skiis. Piece of cake, right? I was wearing a champion’s ski outfit I had just bought and looked like I knew my stuff. Boy, I couldn’t get on the ski lift without falling and let’s not talk about getting off! After humiliating myself and scrounging down the mountain (which I know now, was a “bunny hill”), looking like a dead squirrel, I crawled to the ski school and asked for an instructor to help me navigate this strange and frightening new world of snow skiing. (No, I am not going to try snowboarding!) It’s the same with couponing, once you know the techniques and all the hidden little secrets that we will discover and apply to your strategy, it will be smooth sailing (or skiing) from then on. So, how do you eat an elephant? Yes, you said it, one bite at a time! Take it easy, learn and don’t really eat an elephant.

Step 3: Buying what you use, using what you buy.

Couponing can be very rewarding if you know your why. ​ Your ​ why​ is going to get you up in the morning, your ​ why ​ is what is going to keep you disciplined on your strategy. Now, in this section I will help you with:

  • Planning meals.
  • Storage control
  • Now that I am saving money, what do I do with it? (Let’s go on vacation!)
  • Substitutions and trying new products.
  • The joy of giving.
  • The joy of controlling your life goals.

As you now can see, this is not your run of the mill couponing website… we are serious about your strategy because you matter. So ask yourself, what would I do with the money I save? Only you can answer that question. As a member, we will scout out great deals that you will be able to access and enjoy.

  • Family vacations.
  • Disney vacations.
  • Cruises
  • Kitchenware
  • Pampering Discounts (manicures, pedicures, massages)
  • Restaurant Promotions
  • …and many more!

It’s all about you! Know your ​ why ​ and you are halfway there!
