About Me

I'm a Utah mom, just trying to make ends meet. Several years ago, I was introduced to a new way of couponing. I've been addicted ever since. I have a hard time paying full price for anything anymore.

I love couponing so much, I decided to become a teacher for Grocery Smarts.

I teach free classes and show you how to get everything you need at the grocery store and still leave $$$ in your pocket. I'll also teach you the best ways to get and organize your coupons. The best part of the class is when I show you how to match your current coupons up with the current local sales - getting the most bang for your buck!

BEWARE - Honest coupon users - fraudulant online coupons

As I was reading over my favorite blogs today, I came across this story. Apparently there was a marketing company (Vyrl Marketing) that designed some coupons for people to print from facebook in an application called "Check It Out." These online printable coupons were for large dollar amounts off of specific items. There are many retailers out there now that are scanning your printable coupons very carefully and may not even accept them. Please be aware as you bring your printables to the store, that the store's are protecting themselves. They won't be reimbursed for those fraudulant coupons. If you printed any of these coupons, I would suggest getting rid of them now!

Below are some links that you can read more about this situation.

It's a sad time to see people stooping to these levels to cheat someone else. It ends up hurting all of us!
