EXCLUSIVE: Here's How To Start Couponing!

You get coupons in the mail all the time, but can they really save you money?

When we see people like Tyler Cox from TLC's Extreme Couponing the task of couponing seems a little… well, extreme!

Luckily, the teenaged coupon star himself has some tips for our perezcious readers on how to plunge into the world of coupon savings!

Here's his first quick tip:

"My number one tip for coupon beginners is to get your coupons first! It's important that you have as many as possible when first starting! Trust me, once you have all your coupons then the deals will follow!"

That makes since. You need the coupons before you can use them! LOL!

We suggest keeping your cuttings in binders, organized by store and kind of food.

For more of his awesome couponing tips, you can visit his website TheCollegeCouponer.com OR "like" him on Facebook.

EXCLUSIVE: What Charities Won't Waste Your Money

Filed under: InspirationTips

Q & A with Perezitos.com hostess with the mostest Amy Malin!

Amy works for top party planing company, True Heart Events, and seems to have all the right ideas for this holiday season!

One Perezcious reader asked amy:

"I was thinking about giving back and donating to a charity this holiday season. Any suggestions on what cause to help?"

Amy's answer:

This is a great question and something I'm actually asked all the time as I have helped raise tens of millions of dollars for non-profits throughout my career.

You do need to be very careful as you are correct in thinking that there are many charity scams out there. Unfortunately, many individuals and groups pose as non-profits and take in donations for selfish purposes instead of actually making a difference in the community.

A good resource you can use to check out a charity before you decide to donate or volunteer is Charity Navigator. It's a site that rates charities who have 501(c)3 status and are considered a public charity to which all donations are tax exempt. This will help you see how much money the charity makes each year and how much of the money they earn actually goes back to providing programs and services to the people their organization support.

For a more straight forward answer Amy gave us her 3 fave charities:

Children's Hospital Los Angeles:
The work they do to save lives and improve the quality of life for children with terminal and chronic illnesses is nothing short of miraculous. They never turn their back on a child in need.

Wounded Warrior Project:
This incredible non-profit takes care of injured service men and women who are risking their lives every day to fight for our freedom.

Thirsty Girl Films:
They're producing an inspiring documentary entitled "Gwapa" (Beautiful) which is the real-life story that follows two Filipino families and their struggle for a healthy future.

EXCLUSIVE: How To Be Stylish AND Pregnant On A Budget

hot preggers hilary duff

It’s Q&A with The Baby Planers!

Perezcious reader needs help looking stylish AND pregnant. She asks Ellie & Melissa:

“I'm well into my 2nd trimester and have plenty of maternity bottoms, but nothing to wear on top but my husbands shirts. I want to look like Hilary Duff, but I don't have her budget. Is there any hope for me?!”

LOL!! Don’t we ALL want to look like Hilary Duff (pregnant or not)!

The Baby Planner’s answer:

“Funny, what most preggos don't realize is that form fitting clothing actually looks better than loose fitting tops, and get this, they're just as comfy. We say, work the curves, ladies! A great and affordable place to start is Destination Maternity. There they have all the basics to have you looking chic for cheap. Keep in mind that you really don't need that much to make it through your pregnancy - a few maternity t's, leggins, a great jacket and one or two 'fancy' shirts for the Holidays can carry you the whole nine months.

And FYI, Hilary's a fan.”

HA! You can literally dress like Hilary! BTW, we totally agree pregnancy curves are amazing! Embrace your bump, and show it off!

We still want The Muppets to host…but Betty would be an EXTREMELY CLOSE second choice! Or maybe she can host WITH Kermit, Miss Piggy, and all the others!!! EPIC!

A very lucky Perezcious Reader got the wonderful opportunity to see Betty White speak at Southern California's Distinguished Speaker Series in Pasadena last night….and sure enough, the subject of the Oscars came up!

Betty actually hadn't heard that Eddie Murphy had quit the Oscars yet, but when event host Doug McIntyre asked if she'd like to take over for Eddie, Ms. White had the following to say:

EXCLUSIVE: Ali Landry's Newborn Must Haves!

ali landry mom tip tuesday

She's a beauty queen, and actress, and — as of this month — a mother of two, but Ali Landry takes the time to share her parenting tips with our perezcious readers!

Ali's new son, Marcelo Alejandro Monteverde, arrived on October 8th and every day since then has been a whirlwind

"Between taking care of a newborn and going back to work so soon life’s been kind of a daze, but I wouldn’t change it for the world! Adjusting your life to incorporate the needs of a growing family is not simple, so I’m lucky to have found some great products that make life a little easier and allow me to focus on enjoying my precious baby"

Ali's Newborn Must Haves Are:

· Miracle Blanket: I used it with Estela and it had her sleeping through the night at 2 weeks, so you better believe it was at the number one thing on my list this time around.

· Nap Nanny: it’s so lovely and cozy, Marcelo loves sleeping in it during the day. The best part is I can move it around from room to room so I can always keep an eye on him (instant anxiety reduction!)

· Tribe Diaper Bag: this is the holy grail of diaper bags – stylish and functional. You would never know from looking at its gorgeous black leather and gold accent exterior that it has pockets and compartments to hold everything from a change of clothes to a poopy diaper.

· Bravado Nursing Bras: two words – easy access. And that’s all you need to know.

· MD Moms Wipes: developed by pediatrician mothers, these are the gentlest wipes ever. I actually use them for the whole family and trust me, they are worth their weight in gold.

· My friends and family: their love and support is a continued blessing, and I couldn’t get by without them. So, thanks!

Thanks U Ali!
