Printable Coupons!

Do you enjoy printable coupons? If you do click here to see a huge list of them courtesy of a forum contributor of Smartcanucks.


Hi everyone,

I've been monitoring the deals for you. I like letting you all know the great deals available. In the mean time here are a couple tips:

1. Extra Foods - Yes, Safeway - No, -> Save your hard earned dollars.
2. Monitor your weekly flyers that arrive on Thursdays.
3. Use coupons, especially when items are on sale.
4. Eat at home
5. Take a home made lunch to work.
6. Read blogs: Budgeting, couponing, cooking, self-development, etc.
7. Help a friend. Someone will help you when you need it.
8. I could make this list go on forever. Until then watch this one minute video on "optimism".

Welcome to SaveMoneyKootenays!

Hi everyone,

Well... I introduced my site on Facebook last night and since then I have had over 32 visitors and over 200 page views. If all of you have realized $50 savings, I have saved my friends over $1500 in less than 24 hours. That is the purpose of this website. I just want to let you all know I have much more information to share with you. It takes a while to write blog posts. But, they will appear. If you feel the information on this website is not for you (e.g. too time consuming) you may have friends, family and others who may benefit. They deserve a break and some free stuff. I just want to let you know that this is my first website and I appreciate your patience. My goal is to introduce you to a new world saving money.

Some things you could do to help others as well:

  • Contribute ideas by email - savemoneykootenays@gmail.com
  • Tell all your friends - help them out
  • Make comments on what you would like to see
  • Become a "follower" with Google Friend Connect
  • Bookmark this website for daily visits
  • Contact me with some technical support to help this site run better

Thank you for all your support....

$1.00 Off At Mohawk

This is an exclusive offer that lasts until September 30, 2009. There are 14 weeks left until the offer expires. A few weeks back I printed off 20 coupons, cut them out, staple them into a coupon book and put them in my car. Every time I go to Mohawk I hand them my coupon and they scan it into their system and it shows up as a $1.00 off summer time deal. You could always print off 14 for your family and/or friends and give it to them as a gift.

Enjoy your summer!
