Overnight, My Husband Lost His Job.
It all started August of 2008 when I found myself in a not so good situation. We looked like a picture perfect family. We were in our thirties, homeowners, and parents of six beautiful children. Little did anyone know, we lived paycheck to paycheck, had credit card debt hanging over our heads (that we felt we would never get rid of), no savings, and no “food storage” to fall back on if something were to happen. In essence, we were just two paychecks away from bankruptcy. We weren’t living a lavish lifestyle. We had no cable, no land line, no gym membership, no “extras”. There was nothing we could cut.
I Didn’t Want To Go Back To Work
But I was starting to feel like that was my only option! But being a stay at home mom was something that was very important to me.
I Had to Find Another Solution!
One day as I was “blog jogging”, I came across a blog where a woman had taken a picture of a bunch of groceries. Then she shared how much she had paid for all the groceries. Holy Cow!
I.WAS. AMAZED…. Then I was SKEPTICAL.
I thought, “I could never do that, people really can’t save THAT much with coupons.” But I kept seeing it, and I was intrigued. The thought of actually saving that much money on my grocery budget, and having an extra few hundred dollars each month floored me! So I started researching. I spent hours and hours immersing myself in “all things coupons”. I scoured forums, and read blog after blog, I googled. I searched. I had to figure out if I could really do this.
I Realized I Could Have Extra Money at the End of the Month Without Going Back to Work!
On September 12, 2008, I did it. Yes, it took me four hours to prepare for, but I went on my first couponing trip. I woke up first thing and headed to the store, coupons in hand and a goal to save money. The one thing that stands out to me about that day was how I felt.
I Felt THRILLED. I Felt EMPOWERED.
I left the store with a cart load of groceries which included 12 boxes of brand name cereal that I paid only $.87 each for (that was huge to me!). You couldn’t wipe the smile off my face! I was so excited – I had to tell everyone about it!
I Changed The Way I Shopped
Over the next 6 months, I:
- Built a stockpile of food that my family would actually eat.
- Purchased “brand name foods” that I never would have otherwise
- Cut my grocery bill by 60%
- Was buying more food than I ever had
- Learned how to use coupons effectively
Then My Husband Lost His Job
But I didn’t panic. For the first time ever I was prepared, we had a large stockpile that we could live off of. And I was able to MAINTAIN this stockpile because I knew how to effectively coupon shop. I cut my grocery bill even more. And it was easy. We survived over a two years of unemployment thanks to couponing!
