Along with being an amazing baker & an engineering genius, my wife also has a knack for saving money. Over the last 6 months or so, she has really gotten into clipping coupons and matching up weekly deals at the grocery store with manufacturer/store coupons. This has saved us over 65% off our grocery budget and allowed us to put a lot more in the bank each month. While getting started with couponing took a lot of time and learning to organize her coupons took some trial and error, Amy has gotten pretty efficient with her methods and techniques. One night as she was planning an upcoming shopping trip she asked, “do you think you could help me make a website about this stuff?” It was a question I couldn’t say no to.
After several months of market research, sketching out feature ideas, discussing content & tinkering with WordPress, our collaborative creation is now live. While the weekly coupons that come out in the Sunday paper are fairly consistent nationwide, using those coupons efficiently depends on the current sales at your local store. For that reason, we decided to focus our efforts on the store we shop at the most: Publix. This Southeastern grocery chain has a reputation for it’s quality and customer service, and we’ve both always enjoyed shopping there. So…if you have a Publix grocery store in your area and would like to learn Amy’s money-saving tricks, check out our (newest) website: http://publix4pennies.com/
