Florida Homeschool Family Fun!

Couponista

I went to a coupon workshop by True Couponing last month. A few things spoke to my heart while I was there:

  1. Bringing my family’s $600 food budget to $200. This blesses my husband!
  2. How funny, vibrant, exciting and informative the presenters were. They should have a TV show!
  3. The idea that I can bless others from my stockpile. This made my heart skip a beat. I love giving to others! They are a ministry! Their tag line is “Savings for Yourself, Blessings for Others”
  4. The sense of community that this has created.

Even though it has been stressful  getting started, I welcome the challenge. If others can do it so can I! I also have goals for the money saved; college tour travel, Washington DC, Independent Christian Film Festival in San Antonio, Disney Cruise, FPEA Convention, and the list goes on!

Here is a picture of my first shopping trip to Publix. I paid $45 for $175 worth of groceries. My husband and I left that store so fast. It felt like highway robbery in reverse. We were the ones that got away with something! All that cereal was not only FREE I made money on it! I am now a Couponista!

If you are in the Tampa Bay/Orlando area and want to learn more about couponing attend a True Couponing Workshop. For other areas Just Google and You Tube it. There is so much info out there your head will spin. When you google it make sure to put your location in because stores vary by location and you want to find someone who is blogging the deals in your area.

Here are some of my favorite sites for couponing and some that friends have told me about. Put them in your favorites file.
