Please Read This . . . from Juli

bargain_believer_logo

I would really appreciate it if you tell others about the Bargain Believer website or Facebook page or daily emails.

The valuable “telling” comes when you specifically track down your friends and tell them they’re missing out because __________.

You fill in the blank with why you’re here.  Hopefully, there’s something we’ve helped you with and you believe someone else can benefit.  Helping people stretch their dollars and realize they may need less than they think to thrive, has been my goal since the day I started.

I didn’t mean to start a business, but realized I could send you to a print a coupon without getting paid or send you to the same one and get paid.  Hmmmm … pay me!  I say I accidentally started a business, but have to purposely pay taxes now.  True story.

This is work.  In reality, I don’t need a job.  I’m spoiled since my husband makes enough to maintain a lifestyle we’re comfortable living, without any income from me.  I often ponder if this website is worth the stress, but then I remember a heartwarming email or comment I received or a new one rolls in at just the right time, to encourage me.  So many of you are counting on me to help you save.  (Insert tears here … really, they’re flowing.  I get emotional about this.)   Sometimes, having this website can overwhelm me, and I want all the responsibility to disappear.  Other times, I can’t imagine life without it, in a good sort of way.   Some of you (most all, really!) have been amazingly supportive over the past 6 1/2 years.

Beyond me, Gina (my amazing helper!) and others along the way, have counted on extra income by helping me.  The reality is, Gina does waaaaay more than I do, for day to day things around here.  Sometimes, I wonder what I even do!  Just keeping up with emails and doing misc. stuff still can consume me, somehow.  But, when I think of quitting, I also think of her … she’s also poured her time/love into this site and the income really helps her family.

This isn’t a doom and gloom post.  I’m not planning on quitting next month, just processing some thoughts “aloud” and asking for your help, in taking some financial worries away.  The truth is that I can’t lose money, especially while also investing so much time in it.  It just doesn’t make sense.  (For the record, I’ve almost always made money.  I don’t want anyone to feel sorry for me!  I’ve just seen revenue drop considerably, over time, even while slowly growing in numbers.  Things are just changing.)

Besides telling your friends, family, and strangers about Bargain Believer, here are a few other specific ways you can help (that aren’t too tortuous, hopefully!)  :)

  • Print your coupons from here — Bookmark it, please!
    There is also a link on the top menu bar on the website.
  • If you do any Amazon shopping, start with our search box on the top left of the page.
    After that, navigate however you want on their site, snagging all the great deals they have!
  • Use any links we provide in posts.
    Some pay us when you buy/print something, others just for clicking.
  • Visit the website often!
    You’re helping in a small way, since you’re viewing Google ads.
    You’re also “telling” Google you love us and they should let our page show up when people search for certain things.

Some of you have been doing this for years.  THANK YOU!  For those of you who had no clue you could help in these ways or any of our back story … now you do.  :)  Thank you for reading all this!

Thanks for Printing Coupons w/ Our Link ~ Please Bookmark This Page

coupons
Printing from here (or many links we provide) is a huge help.
If you would bookmark it, we’d be very grateful!
(There’s also a link on the top menu bar of the website.)

I want to thank everyone who uses our links to print your coupons.  Even printing just one coupon every couple days helps keep the revenue coming in, so I can continue to pay people to help me.  Without their help, I definitely would have quit by now.  It’s just too much work for me to do alone.

 For those who don’t print from our links, please consider it, instead of just going directly to Coupons.com.  If everyone who used this site printed just one or two coupons a week … well, we’d be rich and we wouldn’t want to go anywhere, ever!  :)  We earn a small amount, but it sure adds up with all of you doing it!
If you have a spot to bookmark the link below and use it for coupon prints (that we don’t give you a link for), or when you want to browse.  It would really help!

♥ ♥ Hearts on Lists! ♥ ♥ (Find Best Deals More Easily)

♥ ♥ = We love this deal!  We doubt it will go much lower than this.  Stock up!
♥  = This is a great deal.  If you use this product, get it!

This is pretty self-explanatory, but for those who haven’t noticed yet … we just started adding hearts to the coupon match ups.

As you can imagine, we don’t use every product we have on the lists.  We aren’t 100% sure what a good deal is on everything.  This is just a guideline to get you focused in on some of the best deals.  If you use a lot of something or specifically need a product, it doesn’t mean nothing else on the list is a good deal.  Don’t be afraid of the other deals.  :)

If you ever see something that’s an amazing deal, to you, and we missed marking it … let us know!  We’d love to make sure we highlight it for others, so they don’t miss out.

Hope this makes your life a little easier and helps you save even more!

Get Facebook Page Updates to Show Up in Feed (New Way!)

bargain_believer_logo

I just found a new (at least to me!) setting for pages you follow on Facebook.  One of the most common questions we get is how to see all Bargain Believer posts in your Facebook feed.  It’s frustrating when you want to see something and Facebook just doesn’t show it to you.

We know that commenting, sharing, and “liking” posts helps.  But, it looks like we may have a new option.  Hope this really works!!

Some deals go quickly, so it’s a great way to follow us, if you’re on Facebook a lot.  Plus, we post some added information or have a Facebook-only giveaway from time to time.

Assuming you want to see everything we post  . . .

Supposedly, Bargain Believer posts will show up at the top of your feed.  Give it a try and let us know what happens.

Is Couponing Worth It?

coupons_&_scissors

I was asked (after hearing Safeway will probably be accepting coupons at face value in AZ soon, more here) …

Is couponing worth it?

If you want the short answer … yes, for me.

If you want the long answer, grab your coffee (maybe it’s a smoothie this time of year?) and snuggle up to your computer or mobile, as I share my thoughts.

When, I say “couponing,” I mean using paper coupons (printable, from Sunday paper, & misc. coupons that may show up) or digital coupons you can load directly to your shopping cards.

I only use coupons for products I will use or have a specific purpose for (donating, giving to friends, etc).  I’m not a true “extreme couponer.”  I’ve only seen a couple of the TLC shows, but I’m nothing like what I’ve seen.  I like to call myself an “intentional couponer.”  I use them wisely and save a bunch of money!  I don’t need a trailer to get my groceries home and one bottle of mustard will usually last us until it expires, around my house.

For me, couponing will still be worth it, even if coupons are taken at face value.  (Keep in mind that most of the country can only redeem coupons at face value and many do it.)  There is still money to be saved.

I’m a firm believer that pennies add up to quarters, add up to dollars, add up to $20, etc.  I’ll even still bend down to pick up a penny.  The bonus is a little bit of exercise, if nothing else.  :)

On the other hand, I also value my time.  If I’m finding that saving $3 is taking me an hour, I won’t do it.  My time is worth more than $3/hour.  On the other hand, if it takes me an hour to get ready to go to the grocery store (or an extra hour to run somewhere else & look at ads, etc.) and I end up saving $30 (random number for example) … totally worth my time.  I should say … usually!  There are weeks when I don’t have an hour to spare to save $30, as much as I want to.  I value my sanity more than thirty bucks.

As much as I love the savings and the financial freedom it helps bring to my family, it’s not for everyone.  I have different time, priorities, and needs than you do.  Don’t blindly use coupons, without counting the cost.  There are costs.  I would never deny that!

  • Time — What “wages” are acceptable to you?  Remember, it’s tax-free “income.”
  • Space — How will you store surplus?  Do you have room or need to stick with basics?
  • Sanity — Does the extra clutter (coupons or treasures you get) drive you nuts?
  • Need — Do you need to do it to make ends meet?
  • Want — Do you enjoy using the savings for something else that makes the effort worthwhile?
  • Respect — Does your spouse value the fact that you do it or does it drive him/her nuts?
  • Cost — How much are you spending on newspapers, ink, paper, buying coupons, gas, whatever?

Take a serious inventory of the above list.  Ponder it and calculate it.  If you feel it’s more of a burden, stop — unless you feel it’s a necessity!  (Well, I don’t see how you can resist clicking and loading a few digital coupons.)  :)  Yes, I know I run a coupon website.  Well, I don’t fully see it that way.  I run a money saving website, that often involves coupons, but there’s much more!

Whatever you end up doing with your coupon usage, I hope you stick around Bargain Believer.  We’ll always share deals that have coupons, but we go beyond that.  We want you to have fun with your family, without spending a bunch.  We’ll point you to those deals and other bargains we just can’t seem to keep to ourselves.  As long as there are businesses competing, there will always be bargains out there and we’ll help you find them!  We may even tempt the non-coupon users out there to click and load a digital coupon or even print a coupon every once in awhile.  The coupon/non-coupon line can be crossed at any time.  :)

I was going to share some other ways to save, but I’m afraid you’re falling asleep now.  And, I’m out of time.  Stay tuned … more on saving (beyond coupons) soon!

What do you think?
