Whether you are a first time visitor to Coupons and Freebies Mom (formerly called EADFL) or a frequent visitor, there is so much to see and do on our little slice of the web. With several thousand blog posts on everything from paying off debt to frugal living to freebies and deals, it’s easy to get lost.
What is Coupons and Freebies Mom (CAFM)?
Coupons and Freebies Mom originally begin in April 08 with the name Engineer a debt free life. The site originally started to help us focus on paying down/off debt. Since then, we have changed the site name to Coupons and Freebies Mom. The new name is better fitting with the overall direction the site has taken. We love saving money and find tons of legitimate deals in our travels and searching, plus we love helping others out… so it’s a great outlet for us to help others save money and better their lives.
Are these online sales/deals/freebies legitimate?
Yes. There is a ton of stuff out there that isn’t legit. We only post deals, freebies and sales that come from reputable sources that we trust or have dealt with. We ourselves usually partake in most of the deals and sign up for many of the freebies we post about. Here is a link to all the current freebies, and here is a link to all the current online deals.
Can you really make money online?
Yes. If you think you can get rich online doing surveys and mystery shopping… we have ocean front land here in Kansas for sale. There are a ton of sites out there that claim you can make money doing surveys and product trials, the only problem is, less than half of them are legit. So many of them want you to use your credit card to buy stuff… the first bad sign. We have been taking online surveys since 2000 and knows which ones are legitimate. We ourselves are members of every one of the survey sites we promote and have received survey checks from them. Some surveys will pay $1-3 per survey, some are $5-20 per survey and sometimes you get in on product trials or evaluations that pay $100-700. It’s not get rich money, but it’s easy money you can legitimately make sitting on your couch watching TV in the evening, enough to help pay for groceries or just add a little padding to the checkbook. If you are want to make money online, here is the make money online master list.
Can I really get out of debt myself?
Yes. You really can. I won’t get into it here, you can read about it in our articles. We started with over 200k in consumer debt and now we are down to less than 50k… still not debt free, but money sure isn’t as tight as it used to be. There isn’t some scheme or magic consolidation system that is going to wipe out your debt, but you can do it with a lot of hard work and determination. Here is a link to a post to get you started thinking about your own situation.
Do you ever have any giveaways?
We sure do! We constantly get new stuff in and have companies who want us to give stuff away for them, here is he link to all the current giveaways.
What about saving money?
We love to save money be it on a great deal or just good old fashion frugal living. From making your own household cleaners to simple and creative ideas, be sure to check out our ever growing frugal living section to learn how to save money in your day to day routines.
What about subscriptions (how can I make sure I never miss a deal)?
To make sure you never miss a deal or freebie, we offer a free daily subscription via several mediums, whatever you prefer. You can follow us on facebook, twitter, RSS or just get a daily digest emailed to you… all free of course. We won’t spam you, we just send out the same great content featured on the site in an easy to read format.
Hopefully that will get you started out in the right direction, so have a look around… there is something for everyone. Thanks for reading CAFM.
