What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My mom couponed when I was a little girl – on Sunday mornings, I loved sitting at the kitchen table cutting coupons out for my mom for the week. When I quit my corporate job and started by own business, I had to figure out how to budget better since my income was so irregular. While I had used coupons sporadically for years, it wasn’t until my income became unpredictable that I really looked into how to effectively coupon. I started researching couponing on the Internet and quickly discovered how much money you can save and MAKE by using coupons effectively.
I think of coupons as cash. There’s really no other way to think of them. In fact, at my local grocery store, I have made a purchase, forgotten to use a coupon and gone to the customer service counter to re-do the transaction only to find that they just give me cash for the coupon! In other words, if the coupon was for $1 off of a product, they just open the register and hand me a dollar rather than redoing the transaction. That was the first time that I really saw the value of a coupon as pure CASH! I don’t suggest this as a strategy, but wanted to give you an idea of a coupon’s value. Every time I save a dollar on a tube of toothpaste, it’s a dollar that I didn’t have to spend!
I had so much fun writing this book, taking photos to help explain various subject matters and reminiscing about how I learned to coupon effectively. I hope you will enjoy reading it as much as I had fun writing it.
More importantly, I hope you can share some of your great deals with me some day! There’s nothing as fun as bringing home a haul of stuff for next to nothing!
