What about 2009 & What's ahead in 2010!?!

In 2009 I decided to make a change in the way I spent money on groceries and household items.  I started researching about couponing and the money that could be saved by doing it right.  By March I was studied up and had been collecting coupons and was ready to get started.  In the next 9 months I would not only change my ways, but the ways of many others around me.  I personally went from spending $50 a day at the grocery store to averaging $79 a week for the rest of the year.  My actually savings on items purchased in 2009 were $3,417, but the "change of life" savings was more like $11,000.   And we have more food than we have ever had before.

In June I started teaching Couponing Workshops.  11 workshops, and 160 students later, we are making our savings mark on the Pensacola area.  2010 already has several Workshops lined up and the addition of Home Parties and Continuing Ed classes @ UWF I am looking forward to an exciting year.

My wish for all my Peeps in 2010 is a Healthy, Happy and Prosperous (start clipping) New Year!  God Bless :)
