My husband has been asking me to use coupons to save money for years. Every time I try it just seems like so much work and not a lot of savings. After reading Kelly Hancock's book I am trying to use coupons again and am finding it much easier with her excellent advice!

Kelly started off by showing me how to organize my kitchen so I know exactly what I already have and what I need. She then talked about how to stock up on sale items to save money and then on to how to use coupons to maximize savi...more

I really enjoyed Kelly's book. It is a look at God's plan for us in regards to shopping/providing for our family financially in our role as the main shopper. She outlines how we can learn to save more in the grocery stores in order to have more to give to others who need it. She does not advocate for people to become extreme couponers and hoarders of goods, but instead to learn what your family actually needs and learn where to cut costs. She does advocate to have a well stocked pantry but encou...more

Recommends it for: coupon beginners
A quick, easy, practical read - I read it in less than 24 hours and found the couponing advice very good. I am going to be giving a small talk about couponing to my MOPS group in January and this book will be a great resource to help me prepare. Unlike "extreme couponers," this author has practical advice for couponers of all levels and amounts of time! She walks the reader through how to begin, gives definitions, and helps them learn to add a little more as they get better and better. I also li...more

This book is about so much more than saving money. It's about how to stockpile and use your freezer smartly, stay organized so you don't waste food, and use your budget in a way that still allows you to donate your time and skill in a way you feel is charitable. It's really quite philosophical in it's own little way.

The author drew a lot of her inspiration from Biblical scripture and her personal beliefs. For that reason, it's shelved in the Spirituality section of the library. I felt sometimes...more

Great book to listen to while doing tedious tasks at work! I am not sure I learned anything new but this book would be a great introduction to someone just getting started couponing, building a reserve stock or just looking for some easy starting places to reduce spending.
Slaa!!!
Well much of this was skimmed but

Lots of gr8 info but my thing is that nutritional value is v. important and I'm not going to buy something made with crap ingredients because it's on sale and I have a coupon, you feel?
Judy Clemens
This is an easy-to-follow instruction guide on how to save money on your food budget. It is connected to Faithfulprovisions.com, which is a web site that is also very helpful as far as organization and budgeting.

This would have been useful if I lived in the US and was a stay at home mom,but not so much for me. It refered to the bibble quite a bit, which got a bit annoying at times.
Jonathan Pettitt
The large portion of the book given to 'couponing' doesn't really apply in Australia. some useful ideas, but ones that can also be found in a number of other book.
Mrs. Lopez
This book was a quick read and had lots of information but I felt like I was reading a religious sermon.
Kelly Pellum
