I don't know about you, but every time I go to the grocery store, I see more and more higher prices and I'm about fed up!
But my problem is how do I get the word out to all of those people out there to let them know there is a better (and cheaper) way! You see, I'm the kind of person that will see a mom with 4 kids in the store putting something in her basket, hand her some extra coupons I have for that item and then let her know about the great deal they have on aisle 9!
It's just a matter of gaining knowledge and putting that knowledge into action... Do you know that billions of manufacturers coupons are printed every year, but less than 2% are actually used? There is a goldmine at our fingertips and in this economy I think we could all use a little gold! Don't you think?
Also remember, there's much more to consider..
********************* When we say groceries, most people immediately think "food" and they would be only partly correct!
However, if you want to save a bundle, but don't think the quality of food coupons meets your needs, think about all of the "other" items that you purchase at the grocery store or drug store.
The list is unlimited! There are paper goods, cleaning products, personal care items, pet foods and supplies as well as baby products. I also like to donate to local charities. So when I have opportunity to load up on non-perishables, that's always an excellent way to do it without breaking the grocery budget.
It's Spring and a great time to load up on all the specials on cleaning products for your Spring-cleaning projects as well!
Let me kow if you have any questions or comments. I'll be glad to help in any way that I can.
For a detailed, step-by-step guide to coupon shopping, I have a 2-hour training on CD called the Coupon Detective Academy. For this extensive in-depth training and continued support CLICK HERE or on the Academy ad in the right hand column.
I am a work-at-home Mom with the most amazing husband and 3 kids anyone could ask for. Homeschooling 2 teenagers keep things hopping, but keeping the pantry and fridge stocked is of upmost priority with growing kids who seem to be hungry 24/7! Couponing for me has been a life-saver in more ways than one. I am happy to share my wealth of couponing strategies that have helped hundreds of families across the U.S. save much more than a little on their grocery budget.

I am so EXCITED!!!! Becky!! You’re not gonna believe it! I had soo much fun last night on my first "planned" trip to the grocery store! With your hints and notes, I Really got it! Along with my normal groceries I spent a total of $76.53 and saved.......are you ready...........$91.06!!!! And I know I didn't really plan it all out. It will be awesome when I do and have a good stock of coupons!! This IS really fun! We really are going to need you because I have a friend (who does coupons) and she saw something about (a sale) but couldn't put it all together! So glad I have YOU! THANK YOU!!! (My husband) kept adding up the receipts. . . he thinks its awesome!

Becky, I just wanted to tell you THANK YOU for your Coupon Detective Academy. I’ve never really understood how to coupon shop, but you made it so easy to understand. It was very clear, concise and easy to follow. After hearing the seminar, I started applying some of your training and strategies. I started small and my first trip to the store to use the coupons I saved HALF off my bill! And that was just a trial run. I can’t wait until my next shopping trip!
