Guest Post - Kyle at Rather Be Shopping

First of all, I want to thank Carrie for giving me the opportunity to do an 'online coupons' feature on her blog. Very exciting! A little about me, my name is Kyle James, I live in northern California with my wife and 3 young children. I own and operate a website called which specializes in online coupons for over 500 stores, organized in 23 shopping categories. I also have a blog where I write about frugal living, tips on saving money, and other musings about family and life in general.

One of my mantras is "Money saved can buy happiness". Whether it be from coupons, rebates, or stashing away money for your emergency fund, money saved not only gives you piece of mind but also allows you to improve your life. A good example of this was when I went back to school to complete my MBA degree without having to go into debt because I prepared and saved up. I am proof that it can be done. Also, by having a savings goal, it keeps you accountable and makes it much easier to stay motivated to reach that goal.

I really like how Carrie tracks her savings so she can see what works and what doesn't. I strongly recommend doing this and a cool thing will happen along the way, it will become a game. This happened to me, and now whenever I buy something online I am not satisfied until I have looked under every "cyber rock" for the best deal. An example from the other day was when my wife told me that we were almost out of diapers so I went online and used, who are very reasonable to begin with, but then I found a coupon code and qualified for free shipping since I was buying 2 boxes. I did the math and the diapers came out to be 4 cents cheaper per diaper than our local Wal-Mart and Costco. Saved 16 dollars just like that. Plus, the diapers show up the next day from UPS. No driving, no parking, no lines!

Since this is my first coupon feature, I wanted to give you a broad selection of online coupons so you have an idea of the types of stores I feature. Next week I will focus on a particular category like toys, clothes or household items. Until then, happy saving!
