As I readily admit in my couponing classes, at first I was completely skeptical that these little pieces of paper with barcodes on them could save me any measurable amount of money. I had clipped coupons for years and I sure wasn’t saving any “life-changing” amounts. I obviously know now that I was totally wrong…and I’m so glad I was! I received an e-mail the other day from a reader named Kelly who took one of my couponing classes earlier this year and I wanted to share it with you:
I just wanted to say a Big Thank You! I took your couponing class here in Canon City at our church, at the beginning of the year and since have saved hundreds, if not thousands of dollars on groceries!
You might remember me, I am Kelly. There was a time when I was NOT convinced that couponing was right for me. I think I shared the story of the Catalina’s with you at that class. I was confused into thinking that every time my sister would talk about “Catalina”, that she was talking about the salad dressing. “I’m not interested because I don’t like Catalina”, I would impatiently tell her each time the subject would arise. It’s actually quite funny now to think of how much I really Love do catalina’s!
I’ve attached a picture of just one of a few of my stockpile shelves. I really love this particular shelf, because most of what you see on this shelf was free or at least less than $1.00 each! Love it!!
I have also attached a picture of my shopping trip to Safeway that I did last night. I spent a total of $24.93 out of pocket and I saved a total of $91.95! I have had many, many successful trips, but I thought that I should take the time to let you know how much you have blessed our family with your website and the knowledge of couponing that you share with your followers!
There is no turning back now! Even if I wanted to, my husband wouldn’t be very happy if I started paying full price for everything again! LOL
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!
Isn’t that awesome?!? I told Kelly that I could never forget her and her Catalina story…that is just too funny! I hope that if you are still on the fence about this whole couponing thing that you will give it a try…who knows, it could save you hundreds or even thousands too…and I’d be willing to guess that it will! 😉
