My mission in life is to help people save money and get out of debt! I am a Dave Ramsey Certified Financial Counselor and an "accidental" Coupon Queen. I starting couponing in 2008 just because I love to save money and didn't want to spend any more than I had to on groceries and toiletries. I noticed that many of my financial counseling clients were spending way to much on groceries, as I once had. I told them they should consider "practical couponing" as a way to free up some money to pay down their debt and build up their savings. After I had several of my clients ask me to teach them how, I decided to do just that! I wrote "Confessions of a Coupon Queen: Secrets Retailers Don't Want You to Know" as a handbook for my Coupon Workshops. "The Coupon Sisters Get Cooking: Your Complete Guide to Meal Planning" expands on the importance of Meal Planning as a component of my personal plan for saving money. I'm a writer at heart, and there are plenty more ideas for future e-books rolling around in my head!
I live in the Greater Cincinnati area with my husband, Nick, and our two cats, Peanut and Little Tiny. When I'm not teaching, writing, or chasing down a bargain, you'll find me at the gun range with my husband, watching UFC, or curled up with a good book.
