First Feature beginning this week!

I plan to include a post every week that showcases how far $20 can take you. This idea will show everyone that not every week in couponing is a good week, but some weeks are amazing! This will also show newbie couponers that it doesn't take much money to begin saving. I will post these pictures every Friday! Look for my first $20 A Week post this Friday! I plan to keep this up, even throughout the rest of this semester of school. This is something I do every week anyway, but maybe this will motivate me to really try to get the most out of my $20. I think everyone will be surprised with my first post :)

I already have a few other ideas for topics for this blog, but I thought I'd see what everyone else would like to see on the blog. What types of things do you need help with to get started? For those of you who are already in to couponing, what things helped you get started? What do you have questions about? Look around the blog and let me know what you think so far and what you'd like to see added or see more of.

Getting started :)

As of now I don't plan on this blog being a huge thing. I don't have a lot of time to make multiple posts, as I'm a stay-at-home mommy and a full-time student (I take online classes). Maybe eventually we'll see my blog evolve into something bigger, but only time will tell. Right now, I'd just like it to be a sort of guide to my family/friends who are looking to me for helping getting started with couponing and general money saving. I may or may not be able to post everyday, and the number of posts may vary from day to day and week to week. A lot of the bigger couponing blogs available don't start at the very beginning so everyone becomes a little confused and unsure of where to begin or they get lost somewhere along the way. I get asked a lot of the same questions over and over and I just figured this would be the best way to address everyone's questions in one place, so that everyone can see the answers. This may be a little slow for some of you, but you must remember that everyone has to begin somewhere. Please stay polite and those of you who aren't quite as new can feel free to answer questions/help others out as well!

This is going to start off really slow, with probably only a few posts a week. I'm still finishing off my spring semester of school and I also really want feedback from everyone so I know what everyone wants out of the blog. This summer I plan to do more with this and really get everything started, until then please be patient.

Here are a few tips on getting started, thanks to my favorite blogger Collin Morgan! (she writes hip2save!)
