Coupons of the 21st Century

Technology plays a vital role in our daily lives. As each decade progresses, new developments for everyday products are released that make them more efficient, thus saving consumers time and at times, money. Through this cycle, simple activities we used to do manually a decade ago can now be done in half the time with innovative mobile devices and sophisticated programs.

This concept is particularly prevalent in the world of couponing. What was once primarily a semi-painstaking process of clipping coupons then attempting to manually organize them has grown into a technologically based process. Below are a few of the most notable ways in which technology has transformed the world of couponing for modern society.

Digital Coupons

Digital coupons are one of the most popular ways in which technology has transformed the way we find and apply coupons. Instead of waiting for that Sunday paper or those sales ads to arrive in the mailbox, people can simply go online to their favorite manufacturer or coupon related website like RewardIt, and instantly access available coupons.

In most cases, these digital coupons are printable coupons that once accessed online, require printing for physical use. However, others can be accessed or saved to a mobile device that can then be used in their digital form at the cash register.

Tablet Computers

Tablet computers are the new variation of mobile computing that has become popular in the mainstream over the past few years. Products such as the iPad present a unique way for couponers to easily keep track of specific sales and organize their digital coupons.

Some benefits associated with couponing with a tablet computer are as follows:

  • Mobility: Storing all of your coupons on a tablet is a much easier medium in which to transport your coupons when compared to lugging around a binder or filing system.
  • Internet Access: Instead of relying on notes that you took at home, you can quickly check the Internet for your favorite coupon sites that compare sales with specific coupons for the best deals.

Mobile Phone Scanning

Mobile phone scanning is another convenient and useful way in which technology has transformed couponing. All you need is an application for your mobile phone that can scan bar codes. Once scanned, the information for that product is input into the application that you can then use to surf the Internet for coupons. In some cases, this method can give you instant savings if you are lucky enough to find a digital coupon for the particular product you scanned.

Couponing is an effective way to consistently save money on items that are necessary in life. Fortunately, technology has created a way for everyday people to take advantage of couponing without having to designate a large amount of time to it.

The Queen of Style

Her Majesty the Queen recently celebrated her diamond jubilee in the UK, with street parties and celebrations taking place all across the country. There was no surprise to just as much coverage was given to what the Duchess of Cambridge was wearing compared to the celebrations themselves, but I thought I’d take a look at the timeless style of the reigning British monarch herself. She might not be the first name that springs to mind when you think of stylish royals, but in her day, the Queen was every bit the trendsetter that Kate is today.

With Agyness Deyn frequently naming her as a style inspiration, and recent catwalk shows from Rochas, Louis Vuitton and Ralph Lauren getting into the jubilee spirit, the Queen’s outfits still attracts attention. Always immaculate, and always age appropriate, I think we can still learn a thing or two from Elizabeth on how to dress for the occasion!

Becoming monarch at just age 27, her loyal designer was Norman Hartnell. He created her stunning wedding gown, coronation dress and revamped Dior’s New Look to create a very British take on the trend just for her. Think elegant pastel shades, polka dots, full skirts and tiny waists. The look is still a classic for evening wear today – this Tess Spot dress (below) from the Coast collection of evening dresses online is a prime example.

If you’re a fan of 50s fashion like I am, taking a look through images of Elizabeth over the decade is an amazing source of style inspiration. Her look is always simple, elegant and flattering, with attention to detail with accessories being key. Pristine gloves, clean, crisp colour palettes, neat boxy handbags and simple, elegant pearls adorn her in every picture. Check out this great Vogue gallery of her trendsetting looks and you’ll find plenty of ideas.

The Queen has moved on to new designers over the decades, from Hardy Amies, to moderniser Ian Thomas, and her current favourite, Stuart Parvin. Taking her from the Grace Kelly look of the 50s, through to the modern sophistication she displayed in the 60s, her look now is still timeless, returning to flattering pastels and impeccably tailored dress suits.

If the Agyness Deyn connection isn’t enough to convince you that she’s a bona fide style icon, the Queen has also inspired the likes of Luella Bartley and queen of pop Madonna over the years, and was the muse behind Dolce and Gabbana’s entire A/W 2008 collection. Rather than reinventing her evening dresses and formal gowns, they paid tribute to a range of her signature looks, especially her classic country style. Her statement tartans, traditional knits, autumnal colour palette and elegant headscarves are a mainstay of her wardrobe when she visits her country castle Balmoral in Scotland each year, and D&G couldn’t help but steal some of her style tips. You can check out the whole collection here.
