Researching TrueCouponing has made me realize just what an amazing team of women are running this website. The originator of True Couponing is Kati, a mother of four who home-schools her children. She has a BS degree in Accounting and previously managed a multi million dollar payroll and fixed assets program for Baxter International Health care. Two additional women have joined her in this endeavor, Kelly and Susanna. They are all three making this website and the accompanying seminars their ministry.
One of the great things they teach you on the website is how to combine BOGO (Buy One Get One) offers with manufacturer’s coupons to bring home items for nearly nothing. They recommend purchasing multiple copies of the Sunday paper for the coupon inserts. They suggest one paper per family member. In fact if you want save even more money the TrueCouponing website offers a link to purchase the Tampa Tribune at a discounted rate, providing you are purchasing multiple copies. The purpose of having multiple papers/coupon inserts is to take advantage of the store sale cycle. They say that stores offer the best deal on products two weeks after the manufacturers coupons come out in the paper. It will be at that time that you will see the BOGO offers and you can use two manufacturers coupons to purchase these items because you are buying two items. So not only are you getting one free, but you are getting even more savings with the coupon! They also say that you should leave the coupon flyer intact and only cut out the coupon on the week you are ready to use it. They detail exactly which coupons to use at each store on their website. They list sales and deals at Albertsons, Publix, Winn Dixie, Whole Foods, Walmart, Walgreen’s, CVS, K Mart as well as coupon deals and baby sales. They also give you opportunities to save even more by letting you know when the newspaper has a save $5.00 on Forty dollars at any grocery store. This week their site listed a coupon for Sweet Bay.
These women are amazing and they are doing this generously and for free. Their website True Couponing is an excellent resource for saving money and offers each of us an opportunity to learn and put our knowledge to work saving money.
