Welcome to Saving with TaLis

A resources, money saving tips and deals that save money.

I am an extreme saver who enjoys shopping and paying the least amount of money possible when I shop.

Over time i’ve learned enough tricks and ways to save money about shopping, which help me walk out of the store with free merchandise and sometimes even get paid for it.

I started Saving with TaLis a couple of years ago, with the intent to help others save money when shopping as well.

Through this site I share techniques and tips for saving money. As I´m a shopper just like you, I also share app deals and other discounts I come across when searching for savings for myself.

Ways to Save

There are several ways to save money shopping for groceries and other necessities, but the two well known money saving techniques are couponing and apps.

Saving Money with Apps


Mobile apps are the easiest way to save money shopping. It can be as simple as snapping a picture, or scouting sales to maximize bonuses.

These are some of the articles i’ve written to save money with apps:



Saving Money with Coupons

I discovered the world of couponing through the popular show Extreme Couponing. I was shocked to see that people can spend little money grocery shopping. However, I didn’t try couponing until I saw my grocery bill. That’s when I started to learn how to coupon and was hooked!

My kids laugh at me. Today, if I don’t have a coupon or promo code for it, I don’t buy it. I simply cannot bring myself to paying full price anymore.


In these posts I share my tips and time saving tricks to couponing:


As I learned more about couponing and using apps I became what I call “an extreme saver” – not an extreme couponer. The difference is that I don’t rely on just coupons and apps to save money. There are several other ways to save.

Saving money with apps and coupons is just one ingredient to the overall recipe that improves savings and finances.

We often overlook discounts and resources that help grow our finances. For example, where we shop or the time of day we shop can be a source of untapped savings. Even your job can be a source for saving money.

The Money Bag

Other factors in our lives can also consume our money and affect our finances. Education, home life & life events, to name a few, are additional expenses that impact our personal finances.

Therefor I write several money saving tips that focus on budgeting and savings in categories relating to shopping for necessities like clothes, college and other education and more.

Traditionally we think of saving money in relation to our personal lives. However, our jobs, where we work and how we spend our days also affects our finances.

Whether additional expenses are the result of owning a business, your profession or where you work, the opportunity to streamline expenses and instead grow our rainy day funds just increases.

You can’t save if you’re not making money.


Living a better Life

When exploring our savings goals we should also take the time to look at our lifestylecelebrations, things we do at home, other needs and essentials.

While a lot of aspects of our lives revolve around money, the primary goal should be to have an enjoyable lifestyle and improve our mental wellness. Do you agree?

Some of the posts I publish focus on the little things that can make our lives easier and enhance our overall well-being. Both mentally and physically or just for fun:

To start saving money an important first step is to think about what we want our finances to be. I always hear the terms ¨financial freedom¨, ¨financially fit¨. However, what does that mean for you in terms of personal finances? Investing & budgeting are big aspects of financial stability to learn, no matter what our ultimate savings goals are. Finances can be so convoluted. Let´s tackle it together.
