Hello New Couponers!!!

If you're new to couponing, welcome!! I think you're going to be AMAZED at how much you can save just by using coupon. Last year alone, my family of 3 saved well over $8000 just by using coupons!!! So many people ask me how long it takes and is it worth it to coupon?? I always say, it's well worth it and it usually only takes me about 30 minutes to an hour a week to coupon the way I do. Now, if you've watched the Extreme Couponing Show on TLC, I'm nothing like these ladies and men, however I still can save but I coupon on a smaller scale.

If you're interested in learning the secrets to couponing, I currently teach classes in Alabama and will travel outside the state if needed. Classes range in price from $10 to $15 per person and they last 2 hours. During the class you will learn the following: Couponing Tips, Where to Get Coupons, Coupon Organization, Shopping at Publix and CVS (Or your local grocery store), Local Store Policies and much more!!! Each person will receive a coupon booklet and you then can email me at any time for questions!! I'll be glad to help you in any way possible.

To give you an idea of how much you can save, check out this picture of some items I purchased from Publix recently!

Okay, so before you take a look at all the stuff, please remember that I don't shop like this every week. This trip was very EXTREME and most of my trips look nothing like this. I just wanted to show you all how much you could get and how much you can save. ( My weekly trips usually involve smaller quantities and fewer coupons) Everything that I bought, my family will use and we are also going to give most of it away. (If you know of a local family who is struggling and would love to have some groceries, please email me and I can take them some stuff or will be glad to meet you somewhere) Always remember that if you can get items FREE or even better if you can be paid to buy the items then grab them and donate to those in need. My family feels like God has blessed us so much and we love that he is my couponing classes and even shopping trips to bless others as well. He has given us so much and we are forever grateful!

Okay, so on to the trip!
