Super Coupon Woman Hit Hard By Devastating Events

Hi Everyone,

I have not been able to write this post until today, and still having a hard time writing it. I was hoping for an easier year in 2016 since I have a rough couple of years financially, but it seems this is not to be. On Saturday May 28th, Jim called me to let me know that the business we owned together caught on fire. The fire spread very quickly and nothing could be saved. We believe that the fire started due to an electrical malfunction.

This is our busy season which makes this event even more harder to deal with because we were already on a tight schedule to get orders out. We had one Gazebo finished that got destroyed in the fire and the materials for the next gazebo also.

We are hoping to get back on our feet as quickly as possible to get everyone’s Gazebos to them in a timely manner.

We had just started recovering from the two Wylie Hail storms from April where our house and cars got damaged, my daughter’s car got destroyed and she did not have full coverage.

Though these events may have my spirits down, I will continue to Pay It Forward as soon as I can recover and things return to normal. I like to help others, not receive help! I am writing a book to be released on Black Friday 2016 that explains that part of paying it forward is being able to accept help when others offer. Any donation that will help us get back on our feet is appreciated, and you know Super Coupon Woman will continue to Pay It Forward to others as always. I am only $2,000 away from officially hitting $100,000 in Donations!

Thank you,

Super Coupon Woman’s 2016 New Year’s Resolutions

So the New Year is here, and after a few rough years financially, I am hoping for brighter days ahead. I will still put paying it forward and donating a priority, but will also try to focus on myself a little more.

I tend to always put myself last without realizing it..I have not bought anything for myself in over two years! I spent 2,000.00 on the $50k challenge as well as taking a $9,000 setback due to lots of car issues (went through 3 last year…No No not my driving, just older cars that broke down and had to get a new one. I had to finally break down and get a new car with car payments which is what I was trying to avoid, but I am much safer so it will be worth it!

I helped over 70 children which equaled to about 30 families. I didn’t ask for any income requirements, just a Pay It Foward project, I gave each child between $250 and $400.00 worth of items. I asked each family to send pictures so I could put a video together. Out of 30, only five did. Thanksgiving, I helped 12 families, and only two sent them to me. When I messaged some of them and asked for the pictures, they just never responded back. Though I did not expect anything in return, this hurt my feelings knowing I put my own financial issues aside to pay it forward, their actions hurt my feelings as I am a sensitive person and take things to heart.

I am proud of my accomplishment, and will continue to work towards my #100,000 goal, just at a slower pace. I only need $15,000 to go! With the awesome friends I have, and getting my finances in order to save for a rainy day, this goal should be a breeze!

This year I plan on getting back into extreme couponing more instead of the retail end. I will be sharing my couponing trips with you..some I may scour and search for every coupon available, some I may just browse the sales. I had a fan want me to share how I work in donating my shopping trips. So by sharing my shopping trips good or bad, you can see how it works!

I will also be working on getting my debt paid down, and building an emergency fund so I will not have to be so stressed worrying about the next bill..(yes unfortunately, I am still in this phase)

So, yes this year I will focus on myself and still help others…good plan!

I look forward to sharing my book with everyone when I get it finished.

Happy Donating!

Super Coupon Woman’s $50,000 Challenge Results!

It’s New Year’s Eve 2015, last day of the challenge..I thought I would share with you the final results of the $50,000 Challenge! Even though I didn’t make the complete $50,000, I completed my 2nd goal of $30,000 or more. The final amount of donations collected and distributed is: $33,500.00! I am very happy with the results, making me be able to help many families in need. I will continue my mission in 2016 to complete my goal of donating a total of $100,000 to my community. I only need $15,000 to make this happen.

With this challenge, I have finally put Super Coupon Woman Foundation in action to help people on my own instead of donating to other charities. I am finally working one on one with people which has been pretty amazing. I was still able to help several charities such as: Arms of Hope, Big Brother’s and Sister’s, Helping Hands, as well as a few local charities. I was able to give out 25 backpacks filled with school supplies to those in need. I sponsored 12 families for Thanksgiving, and helped 70 Children have Christmas this year. After completing these missions, I gave the remaining items to those affected in Texas by the tornado’s which had a retail value of $1,725.00 of which $1,500.00 were new items.

I am very proud of this accomplishment because I thought about calling it off several times due to financial issues that took over $7,000 out of my budget. My friends, family, and fans gave me the support I needed to continue on, and encouraged me to move forward to see how much I could donate. Without their help, I would of not made my goal, it showed me that working together really does make a difference.

Thank you to everyone that donated, supported, and encouraged me. There have been tears, stress, uncertainty, but also happiness, excitement, and anticipation that has made it all worth it. Even with the $7,000 financial setback, I was able to spend $2,000 of my own money along with some amazing friends to be able to pay it forward to so many people in 2015. I never dreamed when I started couponing and donating that one day I would be able to say as a single mom, I was able to give back close to $100,000 to my community. I look forward to sharing my story in the book I am currently writing to inspire and teach others why it is so important to give back to your community, and how couponing can allow us to do so! I am hoping to have the book out sometime in January 2016! Below is some pictures of some of the great moments of this challenge.

50,000 Donation Challenge Leads to Amazing Opportunities For Super Coupon Woman Foundation!

I have to say this past year has been filled with lots of ups and downs because of financial issues, I considered putting off the challenge until 2016. Due to the support and encouragement of my friends, family, and fans..I decided to continue on with the challenge, and I am so glad I did!

I knew that I wasn’t going to get $50,000, but maybe I could shoot for the 2nd goal of $30,000, I am proud to say I am going to reach that goal, I should reach somewhere between $30 to $40,000 in donations, which will make my total amount donated since 2010 $80,000 (30k total) or more! Never would I have dreamed as a single mom I would be able to donate this amount and help inspire others to pay it forward like I have done.

I started the non profit in August 2014 not know what direction to go in or how to get donations, I just knew I wanted to do more, and if doors would open that allowed me to expand the amount of people I could reach or help, I would take action on these opportunities.

I still donated to other charities because my only goal was to help others. It seemed to be more difficult to work with them for different reasons. Tired of feeling like my donations didn’t matter especially since I never got to meet the people I was helping, I decided maybe I should take a different approach and start helping others on my own. It happened quite by accident when I had collected 25 backpacks that I filled with school supplies, and was going to give to a charity that I was working with at the time. I sent several texts asking if she could pick up and no response even a text “Hey is everything okay? I am worried about you…nothing” With school almost starting, and my busy work schedule, I reached out to the facebook garage sales and posted I had free backpacks for those in need. The response was overwhelming, I could of passed out 100 of them to fill the needs. Of course I had no income requirement, just a pay it forward moment. I had the families come pick them up, and I thought this is kind of cool.

I reached out to another charity that was just starting out wanting to form a bond and help them grow as well, soon the same thing happened..my messages were being ignored. It made me feel sad, and wonder why..maybe this was a sign I should give up or was it?

I wondered why I was being tested, maybe I had to get really hurt and angry to be pushed to the point to do it on my own. I really liked doing the backpacks where I guess it was like a group project. I decided to help families for Thanksgiving and sponsor children for Christmas. I remember my stomach in knots as more and more people requested help, and not being able to say no. I wanted to do 5 families for Thanksgiving, I did 12. I had 5.00 in my bank account at times, what was I doing? I wanted to do 50 children, I am at 70! But people were noticing, and telling others about me, a friend of mine was telling businesses about me, and they were offering to help. Then that ah ha moment hit, so that is what it means to fund raise, tell people what you are doing! Now, I am not racking the donation in by any means, most have been from my own pocket, but I got $100.00 from a family that just wanted to pay it forward, and would like to remain anoymous, Albertson’s gave me a $25.00 gift card, WoodForest donated $20.00, and I received another $60.00 donation. So this paid for my Thanksgiving donation. My friends were donating any of their unwanted items such as clothing, household items, ect…so my total continued to rise.

Last week I felt so overwhelmed, I had so much to do, was I going to be able to make this all work? With no financial backers I would not be able to provide expensive items such as video games, in fact, I didn’t have a lot of toys because I buy items on clearance. My money was running low, and I still needed 6k to hit $30k..I asked my co workers to remember me when they were clearing out things to make room for the Christmas presents they would be getting…They sure did, they sent $5,000.00 in donations my way which included a lot of toys which would help meet some of the needs of the Christmas families!

On Sunday, my work decided to collect gifts for Super Coupon Woman Foundation which was awesome, because I was running short on time to seek out financial donations to help me with the families. I am so amazed with all the good things that have come out of this challenge, sometimes I doubted myself whether I was making a difference, I have to say others kept my me motivated by the faith they had in me.

I am working on a book to be released in 2016 which I will share my story of how I went from a struggling mom to donating close to $100,000 to my community! As you can see, I still have financial struggles that could get me down, and keep me from donating, but I choose not to let lifes ups and downs keep me from paying it forward, It’s just who I am, and it’s best to embrace it and do the best I can! I promise to never make others feel like their donation does not matter because it with Super Coupon Woman Foundation…it does!

Happy Donating!

The 2015 Coupon Challenge is going well, I am not sure if I will be able to hit $50k, but I know I will at least hit $30,000 which is my whole years salary which is pretty impressive. If I do hit 50k, I will have donated over $100,000 to my community in five years!

My total amount in donations so far is $20,000…A lot of my friends have stepped up to the plate to help me, so it has taught me if you share your mission with others, most of them will be more than willing to help! Thanks so much for everyone that has helped! I am hoping to have a book ready by January 2016 about this incredible journey, and teach others not only to coupon, but to save money in general, which leads to having extra money to pay it forward in your community, Together we can truly make a difference! I have not received any financial donations which is my main obstacle. This year, I am on my third car, I had to break down and get a new one with a car payment! I love it, I wish I had of done that in the first place! Please consider donating to help reach this goal, all donations will be used to help others!
