I am so excited to have a fellow Sister Shopper joining Sisters Shopping on a Shoestring! My sister-in-law, Lisa, has decided to focus on her newborn. It’s a decision that any mom can respect. So the search was on to find a hardy couponer that understands what it’s like to live on a Shoestring budget! Megan is a great fit and I’m excited to introduce her…………….. Please make Megan feel Welcomed. We’re a great community!
Here’s a little from Megan:
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 6 1/2-year-old daughter and three boys, ages 1, 3, and almost 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.
I’m a long-time user of this website, and it has helped save our family so much money over the past few years. As someone who is in the money-saving trenches right along with you, I’m looking forward to finding you the best coupons and match-ups so we can all save together!
