Christmas On Coupons

Here is an example of what one of our readers Amy has done with her coupons:
I just wanted to write you guys and let you know how much you are really appreciated this holiday season (and the rest of the year).  It has been a rough year for everyone and I was really fearing christmas time.  I knew we were going to have a very strict budget for four kids and two adults.  I have been following you ladies since March and thanks to you my kids are having such a fabulous christmas.  They think it's Santa but they really have you to thank.  Look at what I did with $211.78!  Thanks to learning to search ads, wait for things to go on sale and money I have saved couponing on groceries, I only went over my budget by $11 and it looks like I spent so much more than that.  I hope you ladies know how much you are appreciated and I am so thankful to have you guys in my life!  Baby number 5 is due in April so next year could be even harder.  I feel confident though with the great life skills you have set everyone up with that it will be no sweat!

Your welcome Amy! This made our day. It is so awesome to see people catching the vision of coupons and frugality and making those dollar stretch! Amy attended our very first coupons class. I remember looking at her in the back of the room with a confused look on her face. I was worried she may not catch on. She caught on alright and is more of a pro than we are in some ways! Way to go Amy.

This is totally off subject but is the Idaho Press-Tribune the only paper that didn't get any inserts today for coupons. I got no RP or SS - just the regular ads - thank goodness - with the Albies doublers.

Thanks for asking, I forgot to tell everyone.
