HerMoney Podcast Episode 174: Money-Saving Strategies With Krazy Coupon Lady Joanie Demer 

Kathryn Tuggle  |  August 14, 2019

This week, Jean sits down with Joanie Demer, co-founder of the Krazy Coupon Lady, to talk about some of the best couponing strategies out there today, and how coupons have been revolutionized for the modern age.

Joanie talks about her journey into couponing, and how she went from being skeptical that it would work to being “all-in.” (Hint: Her enthusiasm might have  something to do with the fact that she saved $100 on her first trip to the store with coupons!)

Listen in as Joanie dishes on The Krazy Coupon Lady’s vibrant online community, and some of the advice they share with one another, for example, just because you have a coupon doesn’t mean you should go shopping. Learn what style of couponing may work best for you, and how 10 minutes of effort each week could save you $50. You’ll also hear Joanie discuss some of the mistakes she’s made (hello, high fiber oatmeal) and the differences in the type of discounts offered by loyalty programs, in-store promotions and coupon stacking.

Then, in Mailbag Jean discusses negotiating vacation days and a flexible schedule as part of your total compensation package, how to successfully (and easily) consolidate retirement accounts, and whether or not there’s a benchmark spending timeline for retirement like there is for saving. Lastly, in Thrive, Jean talks about the evolution of the wedding registry. It’s not your mother’s china patterns anymore. These days, Millennials are registering for down payments on homes, experiences, even fertility treatments. Learn why there’s been such a radical shift.
