I moved from Australia to the United States in 2014 to be with my husband who was still in graduate school back then. I couldn’t work because of my visa status but I wanted to contribute somehow financially, so my husband introduced me to your wonderful site. That’s how I started couponing!
Since then, I was able to cut our spending on daily essentials (paper products, personally care items, grocery etc.) to a third of what we would normally pay. On top of that, I was also able to have a stock pile of paper products and personal care items, and a fully stocked gift closet by following the deal scenarios you post.
In 2014 on Black Friday, you posted an Amazon deal where they had select Fisher-Price toys BOGO, plus you got a Gund bear for free. I didn’t have a baby back then, but I knew these toys would be perfect when I had kids. So I went ahead and bought a Fun with Friends Music Table and a Stride to Ride Puppy. This March, my husband and I welcomed our son Bradley into the world. He is now 6-months old. And the toys I bought for him 2 years ago bring him so much fun! Oh, the joy I feel when I watch him play!
Thank you so much for all the hard work you guys put into the site and deals you post! You are helping my family in so many wonderful ways and we absolutely appreciate it! Keep up the great work!
