I am newbie to the world of couponing. Sure, if I found a coupon in my local paper or a manufacturer’s coupon attached to a product, I would use it. But, I have not been actively seeking coupons on the Internet or reading through circulars each week. I have been naïve to the amount of money that can be saved! The truth is that my husband and I spend a ridiculous amount of money on our grocery bill every month and we need to make some drastic changes.
I had the opportunity to review Rayven Perkins’ Couponing: The Extreme Video Course. This course peaked my interest when I heard I could possibly save $5,000 per year on my grocery bill! Who wouldn’t be interested in hearing more? This course was comprised of 14 video segments plus 2 bonus videos, which included the following:
• Couponing Basics
• Collecting Coupons
• Organize Your Coupons
• 7 Rules of Couponing
• Double Coupons
• Free Item Coupons
• Shopping at Target
• Shopping at CVS
• Shopping at RiteAid
• Shopping at HEB
• Shopping at Walgreens
• Couponing Ethics
• YMMV – Your Mileage May Vary
• Your Stockpile
• Bonus Video: Other Food Savings
• Bonus Video: Resources
In addition to the videos, I received a free Companion Workbook in a PDF format. This has been great to have to turn to as a reference, so I don’t have to listen to the audio file all over again.
The videos were brief, yet comprehensive in explaining the basics to me. I think Perkins has done a fabulous job explaining how to go about acquiring coupons, storing and organizing them, and then finding the best deals possible. I really like how the Perkins discusses the best way to shop at CVS and RiteAid because I often shop in these two stores.
I have been so motivated to find any and every coupon possible within the past couple of weeks. I have been paying close attention to the papers and the circulars and even attempting to educate my husband. He is not as willing to change brands to save money, so I will need to impress him with a seriously lower grocery bill in order to catch his attention!
I also visited Perkins’ website - Stay A Stay At Home Mom, which was chock full of information for mothers who are trying to stretch every dollar and earn extra money from home. Perkins discusses many opportunities for mothers. It is definitely worth the time to check this site out for yourself.
