Canadian Savers Shows you How to Save and Never Buy Retail Again [Guest Post]

Couponing today is less of an obsession and more of a lifestyle. Who has time for that, you say? Well, everybody with a little organization!

How does a mother of two start a couponing and free samples website? Well, she first meets her best friend Julia in kindergarten and discover the joys of saving early on! In the beginning, we loved hunting for freebies and just got hooked. As we both started having families, we realized that our hobby has become vital for our finances. Saving had never been so sweet, I remember telling Julia when we went groceries shopping on the weekends and left the kids with our husbands.

Speaking of husbands, Julia’s husband Mark, gave us the push we needed to take extreme couponing to the next level. He set up the Free Sample Canada website for us in 2005, and we’ve been unstoppable ever since! Sharing our passion with everyone else gave it all a whole new meaning, and we felt that we had the duty of helping other people make ends meet and still have a little extra on the side.

Recently in 2012, we wanted to revamp the website and give it a fresher look that was more representative of how far we’d come. It is now called Canadian Savers, because that’s what we all are, right? The website has all sorts of categories, coupons, free baby stuff, free food, and my favorite, contests and giveaways! You wouldn’t believe how much stuff I’ve won over the years. And of course, we share everything FREE. Free products trials, from food to beauty samples from the best brands out there!

People today still have misconceptions about couponaholics, and imagine them clipping coupons off newspapers all day long. In reality, all you need to do is print them out and just remember taking them with you when you go shopping. Julia and I are busy all weekdays, and we have a system where we go grocery shopping on the weekends.

To make things easier for you, all you need to do is subscribe to our newsletter, and you’ll get everything you need from coupons to freebies and more, in ONE email!

Our fans have become really important for Canadian Savers. If we all continuously share what we find with each other, everybody wins! We’d love for you to join our (really big!) family and we’re sure you’ll enjoy it as much as we do.

    Free Sample Canada was 1 of the first freebie sites I remember signing up to! It’s nice to see that they’re still up and running 🙂 I’ll head on over and have a look at the new site after the LO is in bed.

    I don’t think I have ever read your Blog but that will change after reading this guest post. I think you all deserve a lot of credit for sharing your saving secrets and coupons with the rest of us. Thank you and God Speed.
