Couponing for the Rest of Us

*New Feature* Couponing at 18: Elizabeth’s Journey

Here’s a different take on couponing that you don’t hear about often!

We’d like to introduce you to a new regular feature you’ll be seeing on Time2Save. I want to let our guest do most of the talking – so I won’t say much, save that we met her just recently and she is such a sweet blessing of a young woman we asked her to share with you. We’d like to bring her into your lives in a small way each week – as she takes us on a journey with her.

Hey everyone, my name is Elizabeth and I am so excited to be able to share with you.

I am eighteen years old, a full time college student, and I work.   However, family comes first for me. This is why I decided to find a way to help my parents out. Like almost everyone my parents are struggling financially and every little bit helps. I learned about a coupon seminar from my sister-in-law and I thought this would be a great way to help out.

I arrived at the coupon seminar very excited, because I knew this would be an amazing chance to help my parents save money. I learned that it is possible to save hundreds of dollars monthly by using coupons. Which to me is so amazing!!! Okay, I’m off to try what I have learned so far. Wish me luck!  Thank you for reading my blog, and I will keep you posted on my journey through the couponing world.

Your thrifty friend,

    What lucky parents you have!
    I started couponing when I was 22, but two years later, I have two babies and a family of my own to take care of. I think it’s awesome that you’re taking this on for your parents…. just don’t ever let it get you down. When I first started, I’d be in the checkout line feeling so good about myself– then the cashier would tell me why I couldn’t use 5 of my 10 coupons and I’d say…. “okay.” Now I smile and ask, “Can you call the manager, please?”
    You’ve got this whole online community to help you out… don’t get discouraged- it’s way too awesome of a deal/lifestyle to do this!!! :)
