Get Yourself In The Mind Frame Of Saving Money

Posted on May 27, 2014 by Wendy Krepak

We’ve all been there. We’re determined to save money, so we sit down at our computer, read about all the couponing trends and how to use rewards cards to keep some cash in our pockets. We’ve read the blogs, taken notes and printed every coupon necessary. 

Then we get to the store and realize we left all those freshly clipped coupons on the counter top next to our lists. Or the reward card that guaranteed us 20% off our ENTIRE purchase is buried in our purse forgotten. 

We can tell ourselves that a $0.25 coupon for dish soap here or a $1.00 off socks there doesn’t make a big difference, but it does. 

Big time.

Add up all that loss and you’re missing out on saving money for your next vacation or a new designer purse. 

But there is hope! You can save money using coupons and reward cards and become a savvy couponista. A great way to remember to save money is to create a system that will get you on the road to success.

Step One: Clean out your wallet!

If you clean out your wallet and get rid of those reward cards from stores you no longer visit you can lighten the load. Once you have the cards you want to save with, take them and get them organized in a Card Cubby. The Card Cubby is a stylish. Alphabetized wallet that will keep everything organized so when you go to pay for your purchases you can quickly find your reward card and save money!

Step Two: Organize your coupons!

Coupons are basically cash in your hand and they add up quickly. Taking time every week to make out your grocery list and then going through the coupon inserts and online websites can help you stay on track with what is on sale and what coupons you need to save money. The Coupon Cubby can help you organize your coupons with the preprinted dividers that allow you to arrange all of your coupons by alphabet or category. Once you get organized, use Coupon Cubby as your purse or toss it in your tote and you’ll always be saving in style. 

Step Three: Make it a game!

Nothing gets your savings on then a friendly competition. Challenge yourself to save as much money as possible! Make lists, clip your coupons, use your reward cards and save money! Once you hit your goal, reward yourself! Motivation to get those cute shoes or buying your hubby that fishing pole he’s been eyeing will propel you to watch your pennies and dimes, and not buy anything without that coupon!

Once you get yourself in the mind frame of saving money, you’ll never look back and you’ll find yourself a savvy saver in no time! 

Card Cubby is an ALPHABETIZED wallet that holds approximately 40 Plastic Cards or 80 Business Cards and has an inside zipper for money and change, an outside window for identification that helps you organize and Save in Style!

Have you ever gotten a gift card and when you’ve go to use it, you realized that you left it at home on your kitchen counter top? You are not alone.

According to Time.com in 2012 over $2 billion dollars of gift cards are not redeemed a year. From 2005 to 2011, an estimated $41 billion went unredeemed!

That’s a lot of money just disappearing from consumer’s pockets.

While they say that 85% of gift cards are used within the first 60 days of receipt, what happens to the 15% that don’t use them? One of the biggest reasons cited for gift cards going unused is that consumers are forgetting about them!

Majority of those polled said that it’s frustrating to receive a gift card and then for it to go unused. They have options, if they can remember it! There are a slew of businesses devoted to buying up your gift cards at a reduced rate in exchange for cash.

Cardpool.com, the leader in buying gift cards online, will take your $100.00 TJMaxx gift card and give you $75.00 in cash for its exchange.

That’s like taking $25.00 and tossing it out the window.

Or, another option is to remember your gift cards!

The Card Cubby can help you with your predicament and help you save money! The Card Cubby has space for 40 gift cards so all you need to do is fill her up and put her in your purse.
