Extreme couponing!

About Me May 25, 2011

Welcome to my page.  I wanted to share a little bit about myself for those of you who do not know me well. My name is Karma Carter and I am 31 yrs old. I am married and have 3 children, 2 boys ages 11 and 7 and a little girl that will be 3 in November.  I am also a stay at home mom.  I started couponing last year when I got layed off from my job and we went down to 1 income.  We were beginning to sink and was living from pay check to pay check wondering how we were going to make ends meet.  I had always used coupons, and bought stuff on sale…matched my ads, but I had never “really” couponed.  I decided that I was gonna check into saving more by couponing…so I started asking around and finally found a class to go to…I was like “seriously a class for couponing??” So that is where it all began, went to my first class, started couponing and saving money.  I wasn’t completely convinced until about 3 months into couponing I sat down with all of my grocery receipts and added up what I had spent out of pocket (OOP) and what I had saved and when what I had saved was almost doubled to what I had spent I knew this was definatly something I was gonna do for life. I joke and tell people if I win the lottery I will still coupon, lol…of course I guess I’d have to play the lottery if I ever want to win lol.  Along the way of couponing I have learned lots and lots of  ways to save money. Not just coupons save us money, there are lots of frugal ways to save tons of money as well.  It is so nice to be able to not live pay check to pay check and have extra money to do fun things…take a road trip, buy things for my kids….and it’s all due to couponing. I never thought in a million years that a simple thing like couponing would change our lives as much as it has.  It’s nice to be able to get lots of things for free and donate to others as well.  I love my new life…call me a Coupon Queen…or call me the Crazy Coupon Lady I don’t care..but at least my cabinets are full and my family never needs for anything, and I can help others from doing a simple little thing called “couponing”.
