TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:
-- I first became interested in couponing when I realized I could purchase diapers for super-cheap, if not free in some cases.
I quickly realized paying full price for diapers is insanity, and from there I discovered there are many other items that fall under this same category.
My interest in coupons became a serious hobby because it meant I was able to contribute more than just being a mom. I saved $756.40 in my first month using coupons.
That’s over $9,000 a year I’ve saved just from taking 20-30 minutes out of my day; which works out to making $50.00 an hour.
Now, try to tell me you don’t have time to coupon!
PRICE: Only $7.99
