After that disappointment, I kept googling, and found Mrs. January. I can't get enough of her website! She too has an ebook, $17, more expensive than the one from Extreme Couponing Mom, but I decided to go ahead and order it, because I don't think that first ebook I ordered is ever going to show up. Received the link to that ebook seconds after my paypal order was complete. Very impressive, the book is over 100 pages of very useful information, I TOTALLY RECOMMEND THIS EBOOK! I've gotten tons of ideas of how to get going with couponing and she also has a very interesting outline of The Shoppers Drug Mart Optimum plan, which up until now, I have used but not to it's full advantage. It's really made me rethink my shopping habits and patterns. With just a little bit of planning I think I can cut my shopping expenses by a lot.
Over the Christmas shopping season, I also discovered that EBATES has arrived in Canada. I've heard about this site before, and if you are the type to online shop, which I am, it's an easy way to make free money. Next time I want to purchase something, I'll be going there first to see if I can order it online.
Swagbucks is another site that I always thought you could only use in the US, but it's available to us Canadians now too. Lately I do all my internet searching through swaybacks to earn points. Hard to tell how quickly I will be able to earn, but worth a try.
And Lastly, a site that I haven't taken advantage of yet but plan to is Checkout51. Each Thursday the site lists items, if you purchase them you take a photo of your receipt with their smart phone app, and earn points that can be redeemed for cash. Not yet sure if this will be worthwhile, but again, it's worth a try.
So that's what I plan to focus on for the New Year. What resolutions have you made?
