Clipping for Savings!

My topic today is not about a specific product, store or brand. Rather, today I am going to talk about getting the best deals possible and using COUPONS. Although I am not much of a coupon user myself….yet….I have been seriously considering buying a binder and starting. Many hardcore coupon queens have saved hundreds, even thousands of dollars just using coupons! A friend of mine has begun couponing and she has found some amazing deals. Here are some of her top tips for those of you interested in how to make the most of your coupon experience:

1. Only use a coupon on a sale price to make it a BETTER PRICE, don’t use it on the regular price.

2. Never use the coupon from the store you got it from on that day. The price is probably cheaper somewhere else or will go on sale in a week or two, be patient.

I think these are great tips for someone starting out as I would never think of either of these!! Here are some pictures of ways that Chrissie has found exceptional savings with coupons:

2 Boxes FULL of Gillette Razors, Chrissie paid 30cents( the gst) for each of these.
Another Great Steal :)

In Picture:

4 Pkg of Huggies Pure and Natural size 2
4 Pkgs of Pampers - 3 size 3 and 1 size 4
3 pkg of Flintstones childrens vitamins
2 Pkgs of Huggies size 3
1 box of Kleenix1
24 rolls of Toliet Paper
10 Tubs of Wipes
GRAND TOTAL!!!! $31.93

Chrissie bought ALL THIS FOR $6.20

So where can we get coupons?? Your local flyers and newspapers are a great place to start! Many stores also offer their flyers online so if you have a printer you’re set! Many stores now offer email sign-ups so that you can be notified of special coupons and sales so make sure you sign up with your favorite stores.

One of the BEST places to find coupons nowadays is on sites like these: http://www.brandsaver.ca/, http://smartcanucks.ca/, and http://www.save.ca/. These sites offer great coupons for many different products. Smart Canucks is a forum where people post deals, coupons, discount codes etc for others to use! I have spent a lot of time on Smart Canucks and it is amazing what you can find. People post free giveaways, free downloads and pretty much any deal you can find. Most people will also post whether or not the coupon codes have worked for them when they tried it so that you don’t end up wasting your time.

Here are some of my favorite videos about couponing: My Nifty Coupon Binder, Coupon Queen and Chicago's Coupon Queen.

Bringing Passion (back) Into Your Life!

Today I would like to share a bit about one of my home businesses and why I love it so much. Since about April 2009 I have been a Passion Consultant with Passion Parties. I had been thinking about it for a while and wasn’t positive I could do a party without a red face or looking silly, but I went ahead and decided I would go for it. I am so glad I did! This has been one of the most fantastic experiences so far and it looks like it will only get better.

Passion Parties carries a variety of products to help boost the passion in your life. Whether you’re married or single, young or young-at-heart, male or female we have products that are sure to spice things up :) We do home parties for ladies or couples 18+ and it’s guaranteed to be the ultimate night in! With education, games and, of course, free giveaways it’s sure to be a night of laughs, giggles and mayhem (of course as mild or wild as you like!).

With products ranging from lotions, potions, toys, games and so much more it’s hard to pick just a few to review. Here are two of my favorites:

1. Nipple Nibbler: Don’t let the name scare you away; this is one of our most fantastic edible products! Its intended use is to apply to various locations for a cooling sensation and, of course, to be licked off. However, it makes the most fantastic lip balm and tastes SO good! It comes in Mandarin Orange, Strawberry, Raspberry and Watermelon.

2. Brown Sugar Body Scrub: Although this product is NOT edible, you’re sure going to want to taste it because it smells sooo yummy! (Don’t worry though, it’s non-toxic so if your little ones decide to make it a snack, it will not harm them. It just doesn’t taste that great). This body scrub will make you smell so tasty and give you the smoothest skin! The scrubbing beads dissolve into the bathwater and turn into a bath oil for the smoothest skin possible!

This company is so fantastic to work with and allows you the freedom to run your business how you see fit! You can offer so many different hostess incentives and there are often great deals for consultants to help build your kit, your stock or your own personal collection! With a fantastic commission, conference calls, awards, and the annual convention in Las Vegas there is no shortage of benefits when working with this highly qualified company.

If you would like to know more about Passion Parties, our products, or how to sign up I would love to share more with you. Send me an email: debnmatt@gmail.com (this is my personal email, Matt has his own email).

Ms. Dress Up

I have been thinking about Halloween today, trying to figure out what to dress my kids as. While looking online for a costume that is DIFFERENT ( not one of the 10 costumes sold in every retail store) I found a cute Canadian website called Ms. Dress Up. The site sells costumes for the whole family. As well as accessories to add to an existing costume. My fave was this cute bunny :)

A Canadians Version of 9/11

This weeks blog hop theme is Remembering 9/11.

The morning of 9/11, I was home about to leave for school, I was taking a few classes at an upgrading school. I remember sitting on the couch, staring at the TV and feeling lost. I felt so horrible for all the families and people that were taken and injured that day. It was a feeling I had never felt before. The kind that hurts your heart and makes you feel sick. I don't pray often, but I did that day. I feel like some of the worlds innocence was taken away that day. Like no matter what we ever do, life will never be the same.

Exciting News......

Moms On The Go blog has added a new blogger, Debra. I am very excited to have her join me. Debra has very good tastes and like me spends alot of time shopping online so I really look forward to the great finds, she has to share with us.

Hi Readers! My name is Debra Murphy and I am a mom of one busy little 13-month-old girl Emma. I am engaged to my high school sweetheart and we are finally planning our wedding in Jamaica for next spring! I am a WAHM as well, running a dayhome with two other one-year-olds (all 3 are within a month of each other!) and doing 2 home-based businesses. I am a rep for Kidsmart Shop which is a fantastic Canadian company based in BC. We sell kids products for children ages birth-5. There is a wide selection of products that range from bathing, feeding, nursing, safety and toys! I am also a Passion Parties consultant. Passion Parties sells adult lotions, potions and toys to spice up your life! We do home parties for both women and couples. I love both companies for so many reasons, but mostly because I can still stay at home with Emma and earn some much needed money.

I met Jennifer through advertising my businesses with Moms on the Go. I am very excited to join her here on the blog and share my opinions and experiences with all of these wonderful products that are out there. I am also excited to learn more about the world of blogging and meet all of the virtual mommies out there. Since pregnancy, I have been an online shopaholic and I know there are many other moms out there that can relate! We hope to help you with your search for some of the most unique, innovative, convenient and Canadian products we can find!

Cheers :)
