I’m a couponer but not an “extreme” couponer. I don’t buy 300 bottles of mustard or stockpile 40 years of toilet paper in my kids’ bedrooms. I’m a practical couponer who saves an average of 60-80% on the items my family actually will use! Couponing has saved our budget and I would love to share the art of couponing with you!
A little over two years ago, I stumbled onto a couponing website and began to explore using coupons as a means of supplementing our family budget…a month later, I lost my job. My husband and I always wanted me to be able to stay at home with our kids and not have to work but our bills just wouldn’t allow for that. I was at a crossroad. Our already tight budget was just suddenly cut by half. So…we made a deal…if I could save as much with coupons as I had been earning at my job, I didn’t have to go back to work. I suggested we try it for 2 months and see if I could do it. Now, I only work because I love what I do and I am saving literally hundreds of dollars a month!
