We live in a day where there’s really no excuse for neglecting to save money.  Not only do we have the traditional form of savings through a wide variety of insert and printable coupons readily available to us, we also have many new and exciting mobile “apps” you can download to your smartphones for a simple way to save money!

It would be impossible (for me at least) to master every single mobile savings app there is out there, however if you can take advantage of even just one, I think you’re doing pretty good!  Have fun with it and involve your family.  If your child or teenager really has been nagging you for a smartphone, tablet, iPad, etc., agree they will get one if they commit to using their smartphone to help save the family money.  For more ideas on how to involve your family in couponing with our Extreme Couponing Tip!
