I am a mom of two beautiful children, Shawn and Holley. My husband and I have lived in Milwaukie for 16 years in a quiet community close to Johnson Creek. My husband and I amassed a terribly embarrassing amount of debt when we were younger, especially after buying our home. In 2009, we began to become worried about our finances and whether my husband would have a job. I started cutting back on extras, we even ditched our cable box. We still needed to do more as we had no emergency savings. The only thing left was our grocery budget. I had couponed on and off for close to 20 years. I would start when I was feeling guilty about our looming debt, but give up when it was just taking up too much of my time. In 2010, I was introduced to the show Extreme Couponing. I knew that I couldn’t achieve what the ladies on that show did as our local store policies were very strict. However, I remembered that when I worked at it, I could save a lot of money. I began researching the internet and tried a lot of different organization methods. You name it, I have probably tried it. Let me show you how to save thousands with coupons each year, without going crazy, and in under an hour each week! You can find me on my facebook page at Stumptown Savers.
