Money Saving Sites You Just Gotta Love


Consummate-Consumer

KOAB is more than just a list of coupons, giveaways and available deals; it is a life lesson in thinking frugally. With sections on coupon misconceptions, the psychology of budgeting, coupon organization, a recipe exchange and menu planning, it offers practical advice on not just spending wisely, but thinking economically and includes the Strom family’s saga of paying off $30,000 worth of debt in an astonishing six months. Perhaps most intriguing are Mrs. Strom’s glimpses into her personal habits, as she shares her experiences with her own experiments in frugality, including whether it is worth making salsa (yes) and tomato sauce (no) from scratch and a list of thirty money saving habits she engages in and four splurges that the Strom family still indulges in, despite the added cost.

But it is the deals, delivered daily to subscriber’s inboxes that are the meat and potatoes of KOAB, with new and exciting money saving opportunities arriving on a constant basis. Mrs. Strom handpicks offers from stores, online retailers and coupon websites, even sharing ideas with other bloggers who run similar sites. Additionally devoted readers send their money saving finds to KOAB so that they can be shared with other readers who hail from all over the United States, including New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Baltimore, Detroit, St. Louis, Chicago, Los Angeles, Kansas City and even across the globe in Canada, South Africa, Australia and Israel. Mrs. Strom admits that KOAB’s growth has surpassed her expectations and credits word of mouth and Facebook for spreading the word about her site – which clearly appeals to cost cutting consumers worldwide.

“While most of the deals and coupons that I share are aimed at the US-audience, the tips for menu planning, getting on a budget, cutting debt and saving money are much more universal,” said Mrs. Strom.
