Super Coupon Woman
Super Coupon Woman is holding her first ever fundraising project to raise money for Super Coupon Woman Foundation! We are collecting new or gently worn shoes that will help those that have been affected in natural disasters, and raise money For our charity to allow us to continue helping those in need in Wylie and surrounding communities. Super Coupon Woman helps those in need as they are having financial struggles or mother nature throws them an unexpected curve ball such as an unexpected house fire, hail storm, or tornado to name a few. We have donated well over $150,000 to our community by using the power of couponing, and collecting others unwanted items to share with those in need. We now have a storage building full of clothing and various items where they can come shop as they would in a store for items they need. Her Pay It forward circle grows and grows and now needs funds to grow even further to allow her to own her own building one day! Our goal is 200 bags of shoes. 1 bag= 25 pairs so 5,000 total. With everyone’s help this can be done. We need 500 people to donate 10 pairs each. Ask Family and friends to collect even more! Please contact me if you have any shoes to donate especially if you live in wylie or surrounding areas. Fundraising deadline is April 15th, so still plenty of time to collect. I will pick up or we can meet : firstname.lastname@example.org
2017 was a year to recover and heal from several years of bad events that was hard to recover from. I had a pretty calm year other than falling and hurting my right shoulder which is my tray carrying arm. It’s still hurt and I have to be careful since I had to continue working with no money to fall back on. I am only limited to not being able to take large parties and other servers don’t believe I am really hurt.
My 2017 New Year’s Resolutions were:
Pay Debt Down Between 8-10k Success …will have 8k paid by the end of January. I did add some debt, but have a goal set to have paid by July of 2018
Build up Emergency Fund …Failed, but paid a lot of debt so it’s okay
Focus On Myself More and Not Put Extra Stress On Myself…Success!
Not Spend any money on Paying It Forward, can only use items others give me or free items I get from Couponing or any fund raising money I receive. Success…I did spend some money, but would back away if I was feeling overly stressed from paying it forward.
Make an extra 3,000 in income from side jobs such as book sales, mystery shopping, blogging, or other side jobs. Failed..only made about 200 and did not put time in on my blog, and froze as far as marketing my book because my self esteem got bruised from all I have been through…hoping to get my inspiration back this year.
Complete the 52 Week Savings Challenge which will give me 1,380.00 to deposit at the end of the year…Failed…too much debt to pay.
Try to pay for Christmas only using free money from gift cards from couponing, survey sites, etc. Failed
Write another… Book Failed
So lot’s of resolutions were not kept as with many, but the two main ones were…so I will be able to focus on the other ones this year. I hope 2018 will be a calm year that allows me to continue to heal and grow that will allow me to continue paying it forward without a heavy heart.
My 2018 New Year’s Resolutions are as follows:
Find fundraisers to raise money to grow and build Super Coupon Woman Foundation.
Continue to focus on myself to heal and grow as we all should each year.
Only spend money on paying it forward if budget allows.
Complete 52 Week Savings Challenge: Want to join to have 1,380 savings at the end of the year?
Have three months worth of bills saved in the event of an emergency and work towards having six months saved.
Finish Girl’s Memory boxes and Scrapbooks.
Coupon & Stockpile more this year.
Write another book
Do mystery shopping or other side jobs to try and earn an extra 3k this year.
Start 2018 Saving Money in everyday life. My book will show you how to save money, coupon, and start your own pay it forward mission. Because I want to share my pay it forward mission with everyone, I offer the E-book version for only .99
Share your New Year’s Resolutions with us and let us know if you kept any for 2017!
Happy New Year’s!

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.
Pay It Forward Challenge Pledge
I have challenged myself to do _______ Pay It Forward Acts Per Week.
Today I Paid It Forward to You by:
Attached is another card for you to take the Pay It Forward Challenge Also. Please Copy your page before filling it out to pass along to someone else to keep this Pay It Forward Movement Going which has been inspired by Super Coupon Woman who challenged herself to keep Paying It Forward in her community which has lead to Donating over 100,000 & Still going Strong!
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!
