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!

$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!
