Welcome! We are glad you have found us.
On the surface, this blog may appear to be all about saving money and getting great deals on all kinds of products. While this is all true, our vision for this site is that it be not just about getting stuff but about giving stuff.
The more we make use of the strategies, matchups, and coupons on this site, the deeper the impact on our own wallets. As grocery budgets are cut (by $hundreds per month!) funds are ‘freed up,’ allowing us to chip away at debts, make extra mortgage payments, go on vacation, or whatever else extra money is needed for.
But it doesn’t have to stop there. Our hope is that a portion of everyone’s savings would be used to give to others who have less than us. Even those of us on a tight budget can find ways give.
Many posts on this blog will show how to get certain items for free or super- cheap. Sometimes you will find such a deal on a product that may not be useful to you and your family. But there may be someone out there who could really use it, and can’t afford it. What a great opportunity to express our generosity! Look, we need to go to shopping anyway, so why not pick up a free thing or two that could truly make a difference to someone else?
Our vision is that this blog will be used to make an impact in the lives of others. In addition to listing coupons and deals, and teaching you how to use them, Generous Savings is a resource for giving. We will regularly feature particular deals for items that we think may be well-suited for donations. We are developing a list of effective ministries and organizations that need donations, and we will periodically feature a particular one. We want to make it easy to share with the less fortunate.
So get out there and start saving! But please don’t forget to share. Because life isn’t about how much stuff we have, but more about how much we give.
