Today's couponer is Myrah, owner of the site Coupon Mamacita. She describes her transformation to being a couponer as something that had to be done because of the economy, but turned into an exciting challenge. She mentions on her website, "What started as a radical life change soon became an exhilarating, beat-the-system challenge to feed our family for less".
This is often the case with many expert couponers, and Myrah is no different. She has been couponing for four years, and estimates that she saves over $15k per year by using coupons. That is a lot of savings!
One tip that Myrah gave was to be organized. She said, "Creat a coupon organization method. I use the whole insert method where I file my inserts by date on hanging folders. I also have a box with envelopes filed by category, where I file those coupons I find at the stores."
Also, Myrah mentions how folks can save money by buying online. "Buy online, use coupon codes, take advantage of FREE SHIPPING! Online purchases will save you on gas, time, money, and aggravation."
She also is very passionate about how others save, not only with coupons. She maid a point to ask "Why aren't government agencies teaching couponing instead of giving out so much money in food stamps?" She makes a good point here since folks like Myrah save thousands of dollars per year just by using coupons.
