I love to save! My husband’s famous saying about me, when it comes to shopping, is that I’m tighter than the skin on an apple. I work too hard to waste money and with the constant rising prices of groceries I refuse to pay retail/full price. I’ve always used coupons but about a year ago I took an extreme couponing class and I’ve been hooked ever since.

I save on average up to 70% every week on groceries. Check out my tips to start couponing. Don’t pay attention to the reality shows that call production ahead of time to get their savings mapped out. You don’t need to quit your job or invest countless hours searching the internet or dumpsters for coupons. There’s nothing extreme about it…in my home we call it Realistic Couponing!!!
