A Favorite Website

I need to brag about a website for a moment.

1SaleADay is a great website! I've bought three amazing deals from them in the past couple of weeks. Their prices are unbelievable, but not too good to be true. They post five new deals every 24 hours. Their categories are wireless, family, jewelry and watch. The main category is "1 Sale A Day" and that deal usually includes a laptop, tablet, MP3 player, etc. You must check out their site today! You will not be disappointed.

I have purchased a beautiful two carat white sapphire ring ($15), a charm bracelet ($3) and a set of sterling silver hoop earrings ($2). I plan on stalking their website every single day to find great gifts for Christmas.

Their best deal tonight is a Google Android 9" tablet computer & multimedia eReader for only $99!! That would make a great gift for a tech geek.

Reasons Why I Coupon

People often ask me why I spend so much time clipping coupons and hunting down deals.  The answer is simple - I want to be debt free.  Once our household is debt free, we would like to stay that way.  Couponing makes all of this possible.  Besides, would you pay $3 for a bottle of body wash when you have a coupon that would make it free?  Why not take the effort to clip a coupon at that point?  If you keep up that mentality on everything you purchase, you will see your savings quickly adding up.

My favorite part of couponing is getting my receipt and checking out the "You Saved $__.__ today!"  Add those savings on top of any store incentives (CVS - Extra Care Bucks), then I'm really happy.  And if you shop at Walmart, they pay you overage for any coupon used.  So let's say you have a $1 off coupon and the item is .97 cents, Walmart pays you that extra three cents.  That may not seem like a lot of money, but it will add up over time.  Whatever amount you save during your shopping trip, put it towards your credit card, loans, mortgage, etc.

Couponing goes a long way if you just put in some effort.  It does not take much time & energy once you set your mind to it.

So Centsible - New blog location!

The blog for So Centsible was originally located at Word Press, but I was not a huge fan of their layout/website. Most other sites I follow use Blogspot, so it was just easier for me to pack up and move to this area.

I am also in the process of doing a make over to my coupon binder.  When that is complete, I'll be posting pictures and letting you all know how the new format is working out.  It's more work than I thought it would be, that's for sure.

Please hang tight and I'll make sure to update this blog more often then I did the Word Press blog.  That place just gave me a headache.
