As a stay at home mom, I've learned to be pretty creative with saving our family money. The number one way I love to save is by using coupons....so when a wonderful lady by the name of Hilani did a facebook giveaway of one of her awesome hands free coupon organizers I was SO excited!!!
But wouldn't you know.....I didn't win
I'll be honest, I was pretty bummed...but when I saw that a great friend of mine won I was so happy for her. AND when I got an email from Hilani telling me that this same friend asked that the coupon organizer be sent to me instead.....then I was really HAPPY! What an oh so sweet thing to do, so I have promised her I will put it to good use!
|Isn't is beautiful!!|
Handmade By Hilani has so many great things hand sewn to perfection including my hands free coupon organizer. I love it because I can attach it to the handle of my cart and have all of my coupons right in front of me and there is a great front pocket to place all the coupons I am using at the check out that day! I can't tell you how many times I have left the store without using one of my coupons because I forgot it or it got lost in the shuffle, now I have a place to keep them all together and ready to save money! To a mom with three kiddos in tow this may just be the greatest money saving invention ever :)
Here are some of my other favorites from Handmade by Hilani and a few of my couponing tips too!

And now for a few of my couponing tips ....
One of the things I do a lot is email the companies of the products we use most. I have received lots of coupons for free products just because I took the time to tell them thanks for making a great product.
Another tip would be to "like" the facebook pages of the products you use also. Many companies offer coupons that you can print exclusively for their facebook fans.
Also use couponing resources like Southern Savers, Couponing to Disney, or Frugal Fabulous Finds to help you find the best deals when using your coupons. These sites have done all the hard work of matching coupons to the sale prices and they even tell you where you can get free products just by matching your coupons with a sell!
A big thank you to Handmade By Hilani for my super stylish coupon organizer, I'll be the coolest couponing mom at the store!
