Real People Love Coupons - Intro...

Hello All!

I just wanted to introduce myself! I am a busy working mom of 2 in Los Angeles and I have been couponing for years.  When I was younger, my dad would say, "Don't go broke saving money!" He always saw me clipping coupons and talking about a good deal! Although I have been clipping coupons for years, I had no idea how extensive couponing is and I have been trying to really understand how to live well on less!

I learned some information from the show that people love to hate that recently aired on A&E.  I am not an extreme couponer by any stretch of the imagination.  I do not have a huge stockpile or 200 cereal boxes under my bed. I buy items that will be used in the immediate future and I try not to buy too much, because I do not have the room for it. I have always been into saving money, but I would like to be even better at it. I decided to create a page that would work as an avenue to share ideas, coupon deals, and activities for couples, kids, and families.
I am also interested in swapping coupons as there are many coupons that I cannot use each week when I clip from the Sunday paper. :)

Welcome and feel free to share your deals!!


  1. I have a brain condition that has kept me from working. It has helped our finances that I coupon now and given me something to do and look forward to doing. Thanks for all your pointers.
