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?

I always work saving money into my shopping trips, but I am just now getting back into extreme couponing again. I thought I would share all the good deals that I caught this week. I have spent more than my budget this month for two reasons. 1) Up until this month, I have tried to spend as little as possible to get my debt paid down 2) We were out of Everything! Now I am stocked up on almost everything for 2-6 months! Hoping for a low spend month in July or August to even out the spending amount 🙂

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 🙂

$50,000 Donation Challenge Results so Far!

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! To see all the donations and show your support, please like my $50k donation facebook page!
