The Macon Telegraph dubs us "Superheroes"!



While we’ve been down here in Georgia doing workshops this weekend, we got a little media coverage from the Macon Telegraph…. we think they were a little impressed!  You know, just a little :)

The Macon Telegraph: Part I

The Macon Telegraph: Part II

Incredible results in five weeks!

~Testimonial from recent couponing workshop~

Before we were married, my husband and I decided live on one income so I could be at home with any children we might have. The Lord has blessed us with 2 kids and I have been able to be home with them since birth. But doing this, financially, is not always easy. Even though I don’t bring in any money, by spending wisely and saving, I am contributing. My family and I are on the Dave Ramsey system. For 3 years now, in every area of our lives, I have been able to stay on a budget. I have even cut back in some areas, but my grocery bill never seems to go down. With a 3 and 5 year old, it seems to go up every year. That is until I met you two. It has been 5 weeks since I took your first class and my grocery budget has gone down from 95 to 75$ per week. My goal is 45$ per week. The rest will go to my kids college fund (another way I can contribute).

I have always loved getting a deal and being frugal, so this was right up my alley. Now, I regularly save 50% or more on my stockpile items. I get to shop at Publix and Bi-lo and I don’t have to buy great value!!! I love Wednesday and Sunday mornings, when I run to get the paper in the driveway. It’s taken me a few weeks but I am not embarrassed to take my coupon binder into stores. I am in awe of the ladies with the binders too thick to close. My best shopping trip to date was to Publix. I spent 4.17 and saved 28.36. My husband was with me and when he saw the total, he was amazed. During that trip, I asked the manager for clarification on a sale item. Later, he found me in the store to see if he could help me with anything else. We about fell over from shock. Never would have happened at Wal-mart! The next day at Publix (a new sale week), I spent 7$, saved 21$ – on 14 items. I got cheerios for 40 cents per box. I can’t thank you all enough for your ministry. God is blessing you two for being good stewards of his money.

Sincerely, Elizabeth

Thanks Elizabeth!  We appreciate your sharing your $avings with us.  We know that without God’s hand on us we are incapable of this.  He has been faithful to us to open doors, give us favor, and to send hurting people in need of hope in their finances.

Hey Girls, Wanted to tell both of you Thank You!!!!
The first thing I check when I get on the computer is your blog spot, to see what you have added I LOVE IT!
Just to share a lil bit of a few trips to the stores with you.
The week of 8/26-9/2 Publix had A-1 Steak Sauce BOGO, Woohoo $2 each! We love A1. You had typed “great Ebay” out by the A1 when doing match-ups for Publix that week. I broke down went to Ebay & searched it, I bought 10 A-1 coupons for $2.00/1 for $1.75 on Thursday. Guess what was in my mailbox on MONDAY!!! I went straight to Publix bought 10 bottles of A-1, 5 bottles were $2 each & 5 were $1.99 each. all for $1.75 and a little patience. This really works!!!

Bilo trip 9/12 this was exciting because it was the first time the cashier said to me “Wow that’s awesome when you save more than you spent” That will put a smile on your face

Subtotal before savings was $70.20
My savings $42.75
Subtotal after savings $27.45
tax $ 3.28
Total $30.78

CVS trip 9/8
1 Cvgrl Foundation $4.99
1 cvgrl press powder $4.99
M&M’s $0.67

Coupon for $1 off of Foundation
coupon for free product with purchase of foundation
$5 xtra bucks
Total paid OOP was .99

This is so much fun to see what you can get for CHEAP!!!!

Monday Evening my husband decided he wanted to take me out for dinner, I said well let me see where I have a coupon for, his statement was”Life is not all about a coupon” I dare him. I did not say a word. After dinner we take a little tip to Publix to pickup $10 worth of groceries to get our .1 item as he figured out we were paying .25 for Toaster strudels he asked “you have anymore of those coupons?” I politely said “life is not all about coupons”. After actually going with me & seeing his already ask whats on sale this week!
I can’t say THANK YOU enough for what both of you are doing.
God Bless

I went to your seminar in Jasper last week. I went to Publix this week – not my normal store but it was 7 miles one way from my school. Using your recommendations I spent $43 and saved $26. The coupons saved me $10 and the reg. retail sales saved me $16. Thank you!!! I love couponing (and get cheap or free stuff!)

The savings are going great. I don’t know how I ever thought I was saving money before – but when I have to buy something without a sale and coupon -it kinda hurts my feelings, not to mention my wallet.

Do you ladies happen to know if there is a couponing group around here – a coupon round-robin if you will? I have lots of baby and make-up coupons that I know someone else could use – as I am sure there are people that may have coupons that I could use.

BTW – I followed up on your advice about the expired coupons and have discovered that you can actually adopt a military base over seas. I have adopted my husband’s former base in Korea to send my coupons to. I recently recieved a letter from one of the families telling my how thankful they were that there are still people here who care about them. That just made my day!

Thanks for all of your help, tips and kind words. You have really turned my year around.

Thanks again,
Tiffany

Testimonials

Okay, this is by far the best and funniest testimonial we have read in a while.  Kelly and I nearly laughed our britches off this morning when we got this email.  Coupon Lady, thank you for taking the time to send us your story.  To everyone else out there who has a “story,” email us at time2save@hotmail.com. We are launching a new campaign – Time 2 $ave Time 2 Give and we want to hear from you.  Also, if you read our previous post HERE it might land you a spot on TV.

~The Coupon Lady~

I am a 31 year old man, with three kids…and now my nickname at work is “The Coupon Lady.” You know what….I don’t care. Neither do the other husbands from our church that all went on this little coupon class of yours. Here is our story.

“How much could this actually save us?” we asked. Spending hours disecting a newspaper to save $1.45 from a $2.00 Sunday paper did not sound like a good deal to me. Being the good husbands that we were, we all submitted and escorted our loving brides to this henfest. We were all expecting to be subject to the incessant babbling of a hundred women about the best place to buy candles, and why their husbands who didn’t come were a bunch of dogs.

What we learned, changed our lives…and those of the ones around us. I’ve said a hundred times before “If it doesn’t say Great Value on it…we don’t need it!” Oh how mistaken I was. I now have two jam packed refrigerators, two packed freezers, and my wife has rearranged the kitchen three times to find room for our new found food wealth. The kicker is, that it is all BRAND NAME food!

This week at church, a family in need was brought up that needed food to survive. Instead of blowing the dust off of that one can of Sourkrout in the back of the cupboard and a few other items I didn’t think we’d ever eat, we were able to gladly supply this family with GOOD brand name food. We were able to give them what we would normally buy in a grocery trip for our family. Because of our newfound skill, we were excited to pick out things we knew this family would enjoy.

To all of us husbands at church now, gone are the talks of Football scores, and NASCAR races. We bring our receipts and brag of our savings, or finding the deal that they didn’t. “You saved 70%…that’s not to bad. I SAVED 80%!! TAKE THAT!!! Have you ever seen men that raced to the grocery stores on Wednesday morning before work….we do now!

I am such the nerd, that I have been keeping a spreadsheet of our savings. You will find it attached. In only three weeks we have filled our cabinets, eaten better than we ever have, and saved over $1,000 while doing it. Thank you for your classes, and we at Boynton Church of God are glad you will bring your class to our church.

Jay “The Coupon Lady”

After some of the girls from Boynton Church of God attended the workshops at Bethel Baptist Church in Harrison, TN it created such excitement in their community that they decided to host a workshop.  One of the ladies called today to make sure that she had the workshop booked before attending church tonight so that she could share the good news!  See testimony below:

First of all thank you so much for introducing us to another world of savings…we are addicted!! I attended the workshop at New Bethel Baptist in Harrison on August 14th and 15th.  Can you see what dates you have available now? Our members, family, and friends are going crazy when we tell them about our deals and ask me daily if I have scheduled a workshop for all of them. My pastor’s wife called me this morning and gave me the few dates that we have something on our calender. I am looking forward to getting you guys scheduled and seeing you both again!
