Mom supports her family of 5 on $150 a month...with coupons

by Charli McKenzie


A woman in Sacramento says she’s able to completely support her entire family of 5 on $150 a month, thanks to couponing.

Yes, she has a full time job - but she also spends two hours a day searching through coupons.  During her long train ride commute to and from work she spends the entire time couponing so that she can save money without taking time away from her family.

Sometimes she not only saves money, she MAKES money - she once ended a trip to WalMart where the store owed her $215. When she makes money like that she often donates it to charity.

Her expert coupon knowledge has caused her to teach a class on how to coupon and manage a Facebook group called Coast to Coast Coupons.
