The Coupon Mom’s Guide Giveaway and Review!

coupon mom cuts grocery bills

Most of you know who Stephanie Nelson is.  If you have been in the coupon business for long you have probably heard of her (The Coupon Mom), her website (Coupon Mom), or her charity (Cut Out Hunger).  The Coupon Mom has appeared on Oprah, The Today Show, and Extra to show people her strategic shopping strategy.  Lucky for us she released a new book this month!

I think my favorite part about her book is that she shows people how they can save money no matter what their personality type and savings strategy is.  It reminded me of my Coupons 101 post where I break down three different time investments and how much you can save using each one.  Not everybody wants to spend mountains of time, but the option is there.  Most people are willing to spend a little bit of time if they see the rewards.

According to Coupon Mom there are Busy shoppers who could save 20-25% on their shopping trip with just 5 minutes of planning.  There are Rookie shoppers who can save 40-50% on their shopping trip by learning how to combine programs.  There are also Varsity shoppers who can save 60-70% on their bill by “cherry-picking” the best bargains.

Coupon Mom even included a chapter on Organic shopping!  That is getting more and more popular and many people do not even realize you can save on organics.  She also goes into the drugstores and how shopping at them before you actually need the products can save you tons of money.

One of my favorite things about Coupon Mom is her charity, Cut Out Hunger.  On her website and in her book she talks about giving back your stockpile and grocery finds to local food pantries, women’s shelters, and humane societies.  You will find that often times the wishlist for these groups includes pasta, pasta sauce, boxed meals, canned goods, etc.  Soon you will grow to realize that these are the items that you can find most often for free!  Coupon Mom realized that too.  She started Cut Out Hunger at her church when she taught a group of women how to strategically shop so they could also fill the local food pantry.

The Coupon Mom’s book is a great read.  It is perfect for the beginner shopper and it will even teach a few things to those who think they know it all.  At only $15 it is a smart investment in your future.  Actually it is only $9 at Amazon right now!

    I would love to win this book because I am always looking for additional tips on how to cut my grocery bill. I am down to cutting it by 60% on average each week but would LOVE to try to cut it even further!

    The way I use my coupon/deal shopping savy to give back is that I stock up on lots of free items to donate to local food drives and I also still buy formula when it is super cheap or free to donate as well.

    I would love to win this book – I really need some help couponing. I seem to spend more trying to use coupons and purchase a lot of things I don't need, want or will even use just because I had a coupon.

    I'm on a mission of self improvement this year, from quitting smoking to eating breakfast to (finally) opening a savings account and using coupons to maximize my savings. I would love to win this book because I think it would be very helpful and informative and help me to reach my goals.

    I give back to my community by collecting the free items from the drugstores and donanting them to the food pantry, or like with the glucose meters I donated those to the local clinic.

    Last year Price Chopper and Hen House had a great deal on cereal where you could buy several boxes, mail off for a rebate and receive a gift card plus there were great coupons out. We already had a huge stockpile of cereal so I was able to buy 10 boxes to give away for very little plus I got a gift card. It would have been silly not to. 🙂

    While I do use coupons and save some, I have 18-year-old twins that I certainly could use help with when buying groceries! I have not even yet made the 50% mark so would love the extra help that Stephanie's book can provide.

    I would love to know more about organic food shopping deals. They seem to be so costly and when the snow is on the ground the garden is on hiatus. =)

    Btw, nice new look. I love your old look, too, but it's always nice to change things up a bit.

    I have a coupon collection set up at my church. People give me their circulars and I then shop and donate to charity. I have donated over 1,500 pounds of food and personal care items to my local food shelf doing this!

    I am trying hard to cut my weekly grocery expenses but I never seem to be able to get below 40% saved. I certainly could use some help with this book.

    I’d love to read this book since I’ve recently become a stay at home mom not of my own choosing (unemployed), so I’ve just started becoming more coupon savvy.
