Clipping CouponsIf extreme couponing had a superhero, it just might be Super Coupon Woman! She uses her powers of getting great deals to help out people who are in need. This is a “pay it forward” story that can use your help.

Tina Klein (also known as Super Coupon Woman) started the Super Coupon Woman Foundation after she and her family went through some hard times. When she was newly divorced, and her children were young, her family needed some financial assistance to get them the basic necessities of life.

To her surprise, random people from her community stepped up to help out. Some helped her pay an electric or water bill right before those resources were about to be shut off. She received food stamp assistance for a short while. Someone chose her children’s names of a tree and purchased gifts for them so they could have a better Christmas.

The Super Coupon Woman Foundation, which is a non-profit organization, was her way of “paying it forward” after she got back on her feet. In 2008, she gave couponing another try and learned how to be really effective at it. In 2010, she started challenges that couponers from around the world could participate in by donating to local food pantries.

Since 2009, Super Coupon Woman has been able to give back over $50,000 to the people in her community who were in need. She says this is thanks to the power of coupons. Her extreme couponing skills have helped her to help others.

You can help the Super Coupon Woman Foundation to help people who are in need. One way to do that is to participate in the $100,000 Coupon Challenge. The goal is for couponers across the United States to donate to their local food pantries.

If you want to help, the first thing you should do is “like” the Facebook page that is connected to the challenge. Post photos and include your totals of your donations throughout the year so your contribution can be added to the total. The Facebook page is also a good place to ask any questions you may have about the challenge.

Another way to participate is to make a donation to the Super Coupon Woman Foundation. No donation is too small. They are in need of sponsors, too. Do you have your own “pay it forward” story? You can share it on the Super Coupon Woman Foundation website.

Does the Super Coupon Woman Foundation inspire you? You can use that inspiration to start your own super couponing project. Challenge yourself to use coupons and donate foods to your local food pantries.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
