Best facebook groups

We already know you like to make money.

And spend as little of it as possible.

You know you’re not alone, right? The internet is full of people who feel the same way!

We found 10 of the best Facebook groups to help you connect with them.

Check out these groups to find fellow couponers, frugal shoppers, work-from-homers, freelancers and other Penny Hoarders.

1. Target Deals, Clearance and Couponing

Request to join here.

This is a private group “for the love of all things Target.” Members share Target deals, clearance finds and coupons.

You’ll have to request to join, but you should be accepted pretty quickly. They added me within a day.

This group makes a point to be friendly, noting it’s for “cool, friendly, positive peeps only” and “drama free.”

2. We Love Couponing

Request to join here.

Run by the couponing site of the same name, this group focuses on sharing coupons for Publix, Winn-Dixie, Dollar General, Dollar Tree, Family Dollar, Target, Walgreens, CVS and Walmart.

Follow the group to learn how to coupon, get notifications about deals and connect with other couponers.

3. Freelance to Freedom Project Community

Sign up for your invite here.

This is a private group for members of the Freelance to Freedom Project, which is free to join via email.

As a member, you’ll have access to freelancing tools and guides to help you grow your personal and professional brand.

In the Facebook group, you’ll join more than 5,500 other freelancers to share resources, ask questions and get answers about making money as a freelancer.

4. Freelance Graphic Design Jobs

Join here.

This open group is for graphic designers. You can ask questions, network with fellow graphic designers and find clients.

Businesses or individuals seeking graphic designers also post information in the group, so you can get in touch to find work.

5. Freelance Web Designers/Developers/SEO Experts

Join here.

This group is more than 15,000 strong, with freelancers and clients from around the world. Potential clients post projects they need help with, and you can get in touch to find work.

6. Freelance Writers

Join here.

This group is for freelance writers to share experiences and ask questions. It also helps you find community, which is elusive when you work for yourself.

Potential clients can post projects they need help with, and you can apply to gigs.

7. Work-From-Home Opportunities

Join here.

This massive group of folks who want to ditch the cubicle intends to help you find a community and — as its name suggests — work-from-home opportunities.

You’ll have to sort through some spam from the group’s 150,000 members, but you can also learn from active members. Post a question or browse for job listings.

8. Work-From-Home Moms

Request to join here.

This group is more than 63,000 strong with work-from-home parents. You’ll have to request to join this private group, but it’s quick. They approved me within a day.

Like other work-from-home groups, you’ll have to carefully vet opportunities members share. Test your knowledge and learn how to spot work-from-home scams here.

9. Local Buy, Sell, Trade Groups

If you want to make money selling your clutter — or find used goods on the cheap — search on Facebook for “buy, sell, trade” groups in your area (e.g. “St. Petersburg Buy, Sell and Trade”).

People in your area will post items they want to sell (or give away) in the group, and you can get in touch to claim them.

You can also list your items for sale through Facebook’s built-in Marketplace. Or, of course, go old-school, and list them on Craigslist. Either way, follow these tips to avoid being scammed.

10. The Penny Hoarder Community Group

Join here.

I couldn’t leave out our very own community group! Join our Facebook group and find new ways to put more money in your pocket.

In the group, we discuss anything that can help you make or save more money, including deals, inspirational stories, freebies, work-from-home jobs and more.

Plus, you’ll be able to connect with other Penny Hoarders to swap stories and share encouragement on your financial journeys. You’ll also be able to interface directly with TPH staffers.
