Free Password Program ~ Secure Your Logins

LastPass | How It Works

Hubby works in IT and he’s adamant about online security.  While knowing your passwords off the top of your head is nice, it’s much more secure for each login to be different and secure.   If a hacker figures out your email password and it’s the same as your online banking, you could be in trouble.

With all the security talk about the Heartbleed bug, it’s easy to change your passwords if you are using Lastpass.

We’ve used the free password program Lastpass for years and love it.  Hear that, it’s FREE!   Hubby and I have a joint premium (paid) account but you can get the free version.

Download and setup with LastPass in minutes. Once you’ve created your account, LastPass prompts you to save new sites as you browse – so you’ll never lose another password.

After saving a website’s username and password, LastPass will autofill the login when you return to that site. No thought, no typing, no work required – LastPass does it for you.

When you save your site passwords (for families sharing an account, you can label them. ) See below, when I sign into my gmail account you can see I have options to sign into 3 different gmail accounts.  Mine is the one labeled with (k).

This is nice because hubby can login to one of my accounts if I need him to take care of something for me.  I love that once I’ve saved a password for a website, Lastpass autofills my login info each time I visit that website.

Lastpass will also generate a secure password for you (like the one in the image at the top of this post)  No need to think about it.

When there are security breaches like the one I mentioned above (heartbleed bug) I just go in and have lastpass generate a new secure password for sites that have been breached.

A Premium account is only $12 per year and if you sign up here, you’ll get 1 month free! Remember, Premium gives access to their suite of mobile apps for smartphones and tablets, as well as additional security features, LastPass for Applications, and priority support from the LastPass team.  I like having Lastpass on my phone for secure logins when I’m using my mobile devices.

This is one of those things that is well worth the $1 a month, but give the free version a try!

Showing your Favorite Cashier the Love

Do you have a favorite cashier at the stores you shop at?  One that, when you walk in and see, you smile because you know it’s going to be a good “checkout” day.  I have several of them.  They probably have no clue who I am.  I try to fly under the radar.  I don’t want them seeing me and thinking, “there’s that saving money chick again”.  I’m very friendly and I’m an ethical couponer but you just never know how you come across.

In a world were mediocrity has become the norm, I think it’s important to show your appreciation to those that go above and beyond.

This week I want to encourage you to thank your favorite cashier.  Let them know how much you appreciate the smile on their face when they help you, or the advice they give on a sale item.   How have you shown your appreciation to a cashier?

If you are a cashier, do you have customers  you love to see and those you’d rather not?  We’d love to know what we can do to make your lives better.  Leave your comments below.

5 Signs You Might Be An Introvert Couponer

5 Signs You Might Be An Introvert Couponer

Would you believe someone who has taught coupon classes to hundreds of people is an introvert?  Yup, that’s me!  I’ve spoken with many other introverts and there seems to be several similarities amongst us.  Don’t worry, these get better with practice and time, except for maybe tip #5 :)

Here are 5 signs you might be an introvert couponer:

1.  You vividly remember your hands trembling at the register on your first large coupon trip.  Thoughts run through you head like, “will the cashier greet me and my coupons with a smile or a frown.  What will I do if a coupon beeps? I hope everything goes smoothly”.

2.  You cringe when someone gets in line behind you.  You know your purchase will take a bit more time and you don’t want to hold anyone up. You’ve heard the saying, “If she’s got a binder, don’t get behind her”?  :)

3.  Your palms start to sweat when the cashier looks at a coupon for more than 5 seconds.  Hoping nothing is wrong you start running scenarios through your head.  Is the coupon expired, did I miss that?  Am I only allowed 4 like coupons, is this the 5th?

4.  You have to dig deep inside when it becomes necessary to request to speak to a Manager about accepting a coupon.  You know you are right and the cashier is just being cautious.  But having a Manager come over means everyone will be looking and you’ll have to smile and plead your coupon case.

5.  You come home from a large coupon haul and you need a nap!

Are you an introvert?  Do any of these sound familiar?  Are there any ‘signs’ we should add to this?  You can mail me anonymously if you’d like :) karen (at) savingthefamilymoney (dot) com.  I promise I won’t mention your name.

Power to the introverts! We are out there and we love being behind a computer.  lol
