My name is Megan, and I’m excited for the opportunity to work with Sara and help bring you deals and save you money. I’m a former second grade teacher who has been home with my growing family for the past six years. That family includes my husband and four kids: my 7-year-old daughter and three boys, ages 1, 3, and 5. If you see a lady in the grocery store with a big blue binder and four kids in and around the race-car shopping cart asking if it’s time for their bakery cookie, it’s probably me!
I have always used coupons, but started getting more serious about it when we went down to one income in the family. In the past few years, the income has remained steady while my kids’ appetites (and our grocery budget!) have grown steadily, so couponing and deal seeking have become part of my weekly routine. I also try to use my couponing time and energy to purchase items to donate for little to no out-of-pocket cost. I was recently able to donate about $150 worth of health and beauty items, and had paid about 10% of their value, thanks to this website. I’m thankful to be able to help others while still staying within my budget.
