Make an extra 3,000 in income from side jobs such as book sales, mystery shopping, blogging, or other side jobs.

Super Coupon Woman’s Ups & Downs of 2016!

2016 is coming to a close, and I am really looking forward to new beginnings in 2017. Even though I have made great strides in my Pay It Forward Challenges over the past few years, I have also endured quite a few financial struggles along the way.

The last really good year I remember having was in 2012. Some of the things I have had to overcome include job loss, lots of car issues which included car being totaled, replacing totaled car with a lemon which led to me having to get a new car with car payments to feel safer. (I hate car payments).

This year alone we endured two Wylie hail storms which caused over $8,000 in car damage and at least $30,000 in house repairs which has yet to be fixed since we rent. In May 2016 the business that I own with my ex husband (I know what???) burnt down and we lost everything causing a personal loss of $30,000. Total fire loss was over $300,000 which included several other peoples losses such as our landlord, nephew, and the business next store. Going through these struggles has made me a little down and out over the past few months.

When going through personal struggles especially as devastating as these, It’s hard to see the positive things that have happened also. There have been a lot of positive things that have happened throughout the year also. I was able to reach another $30,000 in donations which included helping 100 children with backpacks filled with school supplies, and over 50 children have Christmas this year and brings my total donations to 125,000 to my community and still going. I had a storage building donated to me from Morning Storage in Wylie, and I finished my book “Cutting Hunger One Coupon At A Time” on Amazon Black Friday 2016 which shares my Pay It Forward Mission, and teaches everyone how to coupon and other unique ways of saving money even without couponing. Everyone that has read it said that once they started reading, they couldn’t put it down and told me how good it was which makes me really proud.

Now that I have accomplished my mission and shared my story in a book that will inspire others to Pay It Forward in their communities, I will be slowing down a little this year and focusing on myself this year, as I tend to put more pressure on myself than I should. For example, I only wanted to do around 25 children for Christmas, but ended up doing over 50 because they were begging me and I couldn’t say no when in reality, I wasn’t too far off from their situation. I don’t think at anytime this year, I have had over $100.00 in my bank account.

 

Maybe since I have a Non Profit, people assume that I receive financial donations but since I am somewhat shy and haven’t had time, at this time I do not. I ended up being overly stressed due to a few people telling me they would send me a financial donation and backing out. There were a few other things that happened that was upsetting and left me feeling taken advantage of. This left me looking for ways to continue paying it forward, but relieving the financial struggles and extra stress as it was hard to meet up with people and when I took on more children, I ended up feeling like I let the families down because I got very few Thank you’s when I tried so hard. So through all this paying it forward I have learned a few things, and am happy to say I have came up with a way to continue paying it forward without all the stress.

 

I will be setting up my storage unit as a mini donation store where people can come pick out what they need, and be using very little if any of my own money. I am only allowed to use what others donate to help others or items I get free while couponing as I have spent between $8,000 to $10,000 of my own money since 2014 to help others which I have loved and would not trade this experience for anything, but know that it is now time to focus on myself and build up some savings for a rainy day. Though I am in great health, I did turn 50 this year and need to be prepared in case of an emergency 🙂

 

In 2017, I will regroup and get more organized, hopefully learn some ways to fund raise to get back on track to helping families in my community for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and other needs when they arise.

Take Super Coupon Woman’s Pay It Forward Challenge!

Now that Super Coupon Woman has finished the $100,000 donation challenge and still going strong, I came up with a way to keep the Pay It Forward mission going. Take a look at the flyer below and print as many times as you want so you can have it on hand when you are able to Pay It Forward such as leaving some detergent and a roll of quarters in the laundry mat for someone to do laundry free that day. Leave a flyer or two for them so they can do a Pay It Forward act also and pass on the flyer to them and hopefully the flyer keeps going and going.

Super Coupon Woman Has Paid It Forward Over $100,000 To Her Community!

If someone would have of told me 15 years ago that I would start a Pay it Forward mission that would lead to donating over $100,000 to my community, I would have thought they must be talking to someone else. At that time, I was the one needing help, hoping and praying everything would go just right. As single moms, we learn to take things day by day doing whatever we can to make sure our children are happy without them knowing the financial struggles we face every day.

Luckily I had friends that pointed me in the right direction of number’s I could call to see if they would be able to help with a bill, food, or maybe a little assistance to pay the rent. Sure, most of the times the answer was no, but what a relief it was when I came at just the right time and they said yes!

I must have had a guardian angel to help me make it through those tough years. I was stubborn, I wanted to be able to do this on my own! The problem was my money didn’t seem to stretch far enough. I only had $50.00 left over from child support after rent was paid.

My children tell me they had a great childhood, so I managed to hide things pretty good. I would always look for free things to do, we would go to the library and park a lot!

Things got a little easier financially when they were old enough for me to get a job, but they became more expensive as they turned into pre-teens and needed all the make-up, and money to go to the movies,and more expensive clothes.

I learned how to coupon in late 2008, and I not only saved money in my own budget but soon began to see how Couponing could help me pay it forward to my community as a way to give back for all the help I had received when I so desperately needed it.

I began to ask my friends and family and even the community to donate their unused coupons to the local food pantry so I would be able to get more items to help those in need in my community. I usually get bored with things quickly, so I wanted to keep donating a priority, so I started creating challenges for myself to reach such as donating $500.00 (keep in mind, I am a single mom so money is still tight) then $1,000 which I reached out to the media to hopefully inspire others to donate to their communities with the help of coupons.

My challenges continued to get larger. I challenged myself to donate a $10,000-holiday donation in retail value for $1,500, that I successfully completed and allowed me to donate over 700 gifts to those in need in my community while achieving an 85% Savings! As soon as I completed that one, I immediately came up with challenging myself to donate $50,000 within a year. (Even I thought I might be a little crazy for doing this one.) I started having some financial issues and was going to call it off, but my friends encouraged me to continue to donate and offered to help reach my goal! I was able to collect 33,500 of the $50,000. I decided to finish the challenge in 2016 and celebrate by Paying It Forward with 100 backpacks filled with school supplies to those in need throughout my community. I am proud to say I successfully completed the challenge August 10,2016.

There have been ups and downs since I started donating, but I have truly started a pay it forward movement which I am proud of and will now be sharing it in my upcoming book to be released on Black Friday 2016, I will share my story and teach others how to coupon and save money which will hopefully lead to donating to their communities as well, called “Cutting Hunger One Coupon At A Time” I am Super Coupon Woman, but I need some help filling up the food pantries across the nation Will you be the Super Coupon Woman in your community also?

Only two things went wrong this shopping trip, I was going to do more of the oral b toothbrushes for more Register Rewards, but register only took the first two coupons, she said they others were different. It was not that important, I just wanted them to get the Register Rewards..Just changed my game plan a little. Second things that went wrong, I spent hours getting a list of free items available at Dollar Tree, but when I got there…they had none of the items! I have one more store to check out, just remember when checking the blogs, they may not always be accurate or your store match up with theirs (this goes for all stores, not just Dollar Tree) Have a backup game plan or be prepared to change thing up if things don’t go as expected.

P.S. I get back and there is a $5.00 off $15.00 in my email…Seriously? Looks like I will be making a trip on Sunday…Hoping for low OOP 🙂
