This lady is far from a coupon Diva. A coupon Diva is someone who saves over $5,000 a year using double and triple coupons.She is a newcomer at this age of her life. People don't need to pay someone to tell them how to shop and get items for free.I know because thats what i save at least a year .I have also been thrown out of Shoprite in Hauppauge NY 8 years ago for getting too many bags of free groceries every week. That was in our local newspaper.

You sound insulted... Did amy challenge you? First to get a newsday story and wins? Get over it moron, and guess what. If something retails for $20 and they mark it up to $23 but give you a coupon for 10% off. You didn't save anything. Stop shopping in shoprite and you will not have to clip coupons to feel good about yourself.

sounds good, it's just that I wouldn't pay someone $25 for anything. It's about ME not spending money and saving as much as I can, so I just don't shop, or as little as I can. I just don't want to give ANY of my money to anyone at all. I shop for (very little food) and pay my bills, that's it, nothing else. I don't mind making the money I just don't want to spend it at all.

What??? Not sure that even makes any sense. Does it make you feel superior and intelligent to use the word "plebes". You are so royal and entitled...lol
Incase you missed the point again, that was sarcasm.

The cleaning products would have probably been even cheaper if she bought generic brands without coupons. Name brands like "Lys..." are way overpriced!

FYI after working in retail, most of your store named products are the same as your brand name products, they are produced in the same distribution centers. if you look at some of the bottling, they are clearly the same thing. I also worked in a distribution warehouse as well so it is amazing the things you buy are just a name

I saw the story on Good Morning America, it's called BeCentsAble.net . It's worth a look, even if you don't TEACH others, you can save hundreds. I took an online course for $20 (at my own pace) and can save $50 consistently...I know that's not tons to some, but no one is too proud to save a buck anymore.

You folks are funny. So many complain
about paying $25 to learn something.
Why is it that no one wants to pay
to capitalize on someone elses knowledge? It does not matter what
the subject is and it's always the
same old excuse " I can do it myself
for free ". Fact is, most people never do it themselves and if they pay
they are motivated. There are tons
of ways to save money and tons of
secrets out there that companies do not want us to know. Did you know
that Vitamin Wolrd products are made
by Puritans Pride and can be bought for half price on the internet or
in Bohemia? Did you know that anyone
can sell their home for $2500 via
Auction America Realty? Did you know
that every 15th of the month the
Brighton outlet in Woodbury Commons
offers 75% off retail? So many things
to know - sometimes it pays to pay.

If you read how she got the total down to $5.62, she had a rebate. Rebates, you have to send away for. If I am not saving at the time of purchase, then it doesn't count.

Most retail stores offer coupons online. I use Google
search to find the coupons that I need. For example,
I can search for "Macy's coupons," "Shoprite coupons,"
and "free coupons" and print the coupons on my computer.

There is a cheaper, easier way to get this information in your inbox weekly ... it is called thegrocerygame.com and it only costs $1 to check it out and learn the so-called 'secrets' to saving with coupons.

Been using coupons for over 40 years. I bet I have saved at least 20k during that time. Also never use coupons that are for products that a have a short shelf life and might not use!

Love to save using coupons, but computer-generated coupons are not always accepted in local grocery stores. Does anyone know if Pathmark or Stop&Shop accept them? Stores sometimes limit the number of coupons, or, they won't double the amount of the coupon, or want to see the website page. The best is when the cashier yells out to the supervisor waving the coupon "Is this one OK?" and everyone looks at you like you're trying to get away with something!

Bella just trade coupons from sunday papers with your neighbors and friends if they aren't going to use them. I get plenty from that.Perhpas you want to buy an extra paper on sunday .If you don't get home delivery on sunday you don't get the same coupons or coupon values as the ones purchased in the store.

I wrote a story yesterday on my website called "getting started using coupons" at www.morewithlesstoday.com . There are useful tips here from savers all over the country. The best tip is to buy what is on sale by checking your grocery store circular and making a meal plan based upon those sale items.
