September is National Coupon Month

Did you know that September is National Coupon Month!

Here are some fun facts: (Thanks, Jill!)

**The first hand-written coupons, for free fountain drinks promoting Coca-Cola, were given out in 1894 (see the cute coupon pictured above).

**Coupons soon spread to local grocery stores eventually becoming their own industry during the late 1950's (We love you Harris Teeter and your triple and doubles!).

**The first National Coupon Month was in 1998--in 2000 the program expanded to help parents teach children about the importance of saving money (Is it time you teach your kids how to save money?)

**In 2008, 89% of consumers used coupons to save money--giving them about $2.3 BILLION in savings! (Are you one of those consumers saving big?)

Join the coupon craze and sign up for one of our classes. If you have already attended a class and are saving big (or find a great deal), let us know about it!

I wanted to inform everyone about a new application that tracks how much you have saved with coupons.

The application allows you to enter your coupon savings (The store, amount saved, and date are entered). You can generate a report from your coupon savings and post it to your Facebook wall or blog. I am an avid coupon user, but I was surprised that in less then 3 months I managed a savings of over $667.60 using coupons. Enough savings for a recent trip to Hawaii!

The application has turned in a competition between my husband and I to see how much we can save using coupons this year. US and Canadian stores are built in but any store is available to be entered.

The free application is available at
