Boise, Idaho (PRWEB) June 15, 2012
Typical American families are no wealthier today then the were in the early 1990s, according to a recent government and media reports. The crash of housing prices and loss of overall family income continues to take a toll.
Federal analysts say many families are barely eking by and saving little or nothing for the future. The "wealth" they held in their homes continues to erode. Meanwhile, consumer spending continues and nearly 75 percent of households have debt to repay.
Heather Wheeler and Joanie Demer founded TheKrazyCouponLady.com in 2009 to help families save money, retire debt and save for the future. The website offers fresh extreme daily deals, insider couponing tips and ideas for living well with a frugal lifestyle.
Today, the thrifty duo lead an Army of enthusiastic, savvy coupon users. Educated couponers use their skills to save serious money while buying only items they enjoy and will actually use.
Heather and Joanie want more people to take advantage of this knowledge and these techniques.
Couponing can really save you 60 percent or more on your overall grocery bills. Couponers find they can save 80 - 90 percent on household staples such as toothpaste, body wash and toiletries. They also know how to save more than 20 - 30 percent on dairy and produce, which is not an easy task.
Any coupon, especially those valued at 50 cents or higher is really worth using. Realizing true savings is more about WHEN to use the coupon rather than the VALUE of the coupon. Lower value coupons are still worth using, particularly at stores where coupons double. Every little bit helps!
Smart shoppers NEVER spend more because of coupons. Experts don't blindly purchase every item with a coupon. Shoppers must only buy the items their family will use. Without this common sense logic, a couponer could get caught in a trap of buying things they don't need.
The two stay-at-home moms began blogging about their strategic coupon-clipping in Boise, Idaho. Heather and Joanie had to find a way to cut their $500 monthly grocery bills. Soon they were “stacking” coupons, sales and store promotions and walking out of the store with sacks full of free groceries! In 2009, the savvy entrepreneurs released their how-to coupon book, "Pick Another Checkout Lane, Honey." Today, TheKrazyCouponLady.com is outpacing the growth of any website of its kind in the world! The site receives over half a million visits every day and its owners command an impressive social media following.
Their personal experiences are compelling success stories that show the real-life value of clipping coupons and smart spending.
