I have been couponing off and on for almost thirty years!
It began when I wanted to stay at home with my three wonderful daughters. When they were old enough to understand couponing, they would tell each other “mom won’t buy you that cereal until it is on sale!” When I had my second daughter and had to let my husband and the oldest go to the store they came home with one bag of groceries for about sixty dollars and I almost cried!
It is not always easy to stick to a budget – it is ok to give yourself a break – a splurge is a necessity, and life does not always allow you to stay focused. When I found this site over three years ago it changed how I coupon for the better, and I cannot thank Michelle enough. With two daughters in college it makes all the difference – we are at that stage where we help with what we can, but they still have student loans because we cannot borrow for our retirement !
Almost every time I go to Publix someone asks me how to coupon and I refer them to this site. Thanks again to Michelle who makes our lives easier !
Thanks for sharing, Sloane!
