How I Save Money Tip #2: Use Coupons!

How I Save Money

 

This is the second in a series of blog posts entitled “How I Save Money”.  This will be a semi-regular series of posts detailing one way in which I’ve saved money for my family.  Each tip will be my own experience, but something that you can easily replicate in your own money-saving journey, if you so choose.

You can see Tip #1 here.

Tip #2: Use Coupons

Here it is!  You knew that using coupons was going to be high on the list, right?  Well, it’s number 2!

We’ve always tried to use coupons, and we’d save money here and there, but I started saving a TON of money when I finally realized exactly how to use those little pieces of paper that I clipped from the Sunday Newspaper.

When we were “casual couponers”, we used an expandafile and thought that you could only use one like coupon per transaction.  That is so wrong!  My savings skyrocketed when I figured out that most coupons are one coupon per item (purchase), but you can use multiples of the same coupon as long as you buy the required amount of products and comply with any fine print limits.

Example:  if I have a $1 off Tide coupon, and I want to buy 3 bottles of Tide, I can actually use 3 identical coupons, one for each bottle!

The other way that I started saving a ton was by using a binder with baseball card holders.  Once I could see all of my coupons, I knew what I had and I was more likely to use them.  Check out my Coupon Binder & all of the different Coupon Binder Pages that I use.

I’ve already written 2 posts on how to get started.  You can read those here:

The first 5 Tips are more getting organized, getting ready to get started, and simple coupon ettiquite.  The last 5 Tips are actually how to use your coupons to maximize your savings.

You can find coupons everywhere, just keep your eyes peeled.  We even have printable coupons and coupon codes for online shopping at all of your favorite stores right here on Stacy’s Savings!

So, Tip #2 for How I Save Money is Using Coupons.

If you’ve been saving money for a while, the first few tips may be old hat for you.  Stick with me.  I’m going to have more coming up that you probably haven’t tried!  I promise!

Blurb – Quality Custom Books At A Great Price!

Thus far you’ve heard the Blurb story and learned a bit about the extensive tools and resources that Blurb makes available to their book-making customers. While all that is impressive, what’s really remarkable to me is how they offer all of that and provide visually stunning books made on photo-quality paper—AND do it all at such an incredibly affordable price. It’s really is something to marvel at.

Since day one, Blurb has been praised for their unwavering commitment to quality, which is why renowned photographers, graphic designers, architects, artists, and other creative professionals repeatedly choose Blurb to display their works of art. That speaks volumes in my book (no pun intended) because, if they trust Blurb to showcase their work, then it just seems logical that I should too.

Professional-Quality Books and Magazines
Whether you’re creating a photo book, a trade book, or a magazine, Blurb allows you to choose from a wide range of trim size, covers, fonts, layouts, and paper. Paper type is actually really key to any book which displays images. Other book-making platforms may have some nice quality paper, but you’re going to pay out the wazoo for your book. Others use recycled paper, which is good environmentally, but not so great for producing visually-rich images.

Blurb, on the other hand, provides customers with several paper options, including standard paper that has a smooth, semi-matte finish on 80# stock, to uncoated ProLine semi-gloss paper on 140# stock that’s ideal for high-end photography and design books.

Digital Books/Ebooks
Blurb is actually one of the few book-making platforms that gives you complete control over creating an ebook. Blurb lets you make ebooks in both fixed-layout (Apple iPad®-only) and reflowable formats (iPad and Kindle devices). You can even convert any book or magazine you create into a gorgeous ebook so you can share and distribute it in a way that’s easy, affordable, and earth-friendly!

Price
If price is a factor (when is it not?), Blurb is bar none one of the most affordable printers out there with one of the lowest price per page available – especially when you consider their quality and array of creative options. So that you will know exactly what you’re getting at what cost, Blurb developed a Pricing Calculator. I mentioned their pricing calculator in my last post, but to recap, this fantastic tool lets you see what your price per book will be based on the selections you choose (e.g. soft cover, 7 x 7 photobook, on ProLine Uncoated #100 paper).

You can also compare the pricing of different types of books (trade book vs. magazine, vs. ebook, etc.), covers (hard or soft), sizes (7 x 7 vs 13 x 11), paper type (matte, glossy), etc.

Although their pricing is already impressive, take note that Blurb is generously offering you 15% off any book you create from now through 5/30! Get started now!

I recommend sorting through those pictures on your camera, smartphone, Facebook feed, or Instagram page and start creating your very own book. You’ll be so excited with the results that you’ll probably want to make a copy for all of your friends and family (I’m speaking from experience here!).

If you need some inspiration, I’ll be sharing examples in next week’s post of how some people have used Blurb to create their own creative and useful books—so stay tuned!

Weekly Savings Challenge 2015 – Week 18

It’s Week 18 in our 2015 Weekly Savings Challenge!  We’re saving $1,378 or more one week at a time!  To learn more about the challenge and how you can join, click here.

How much did you save this week?

This week, my goal is $36.
