I am a mother of three trying to cope with cutbacks in our family income. I got wind of couponing from some of my friends and after browsing many coupon websites, decided I needed to read some books to learn more as quickly as possible! I read three books: The Coupon Mom's Guide to Cutting Your Grocery Bills in Half: The Strategic Shopping Method Proven to Slash Food and Drugstore Costs, Pick Another Checkout Lane, Honey, & Shop Smart, Save More: Learn The Grocery Game and Save Hundreds of Dollars a Month. Each book was very different, so I thought I'd share my opinions- I hope they can help you!
Let me first say what each book had in common: they all promoted their own coupon websites and they all taught about how to get coupons, organize them and shop with them to save on your grocery bill. The Coupon Mom gave a thorough analysis of couponing, but in my opinion the book's topic was more on frugal budgeting. It spent way too much time stating the obvious and talking to me like I was a five year old.

If you're looking for a basic review of how to grocery shop/a cookbook, this may be for you. The author do cover in depth about how to cook around your new budgeting system: suggests budget breakfasts like 1 cup oatmeal with 8 oz. milk ($0.20), 2 pieces wheat toast ($0.20), 8 oz. orange juice ($0.16). One whole chapter is devoted to saving on each of the following: meat, produce, dairy and treats.

The Best reason to buy this book: It is thorough and orderly.

My wife bought the book. She didn't find anything really new and has used coupons for years. Her biggest complaint is that the website wants you to sign up with other sites for coupons. Best thing to do is get a disposable email address for the sign-ups. You are selling your contact info for the discounts.

Couponing and the book will work. Number one rule is that you have to do it! The more effort you put into it the bigger the return. How much extra work do you want to do? How valuable is your time?

In the past few months I've read seven books on saving money at the grocery store and have been able to save $20 to $40 on each shopping trip. While each book gave new ideas, "The Coupon Mom's Guide to Cutting Your Grocery Bills In Half" is probably the most comprehensive.

Stephanie Nelson begins her book by explaining various shopping styles and then makes a convincing case for shopping at wholesale clubs. She then explains how you can save when you buy meats, organic foods, dairy products and beauty products.

While a lot of this book is about clipping coupons, some of the information is more about a back-to-basics approach. Do you really want to wash your own lettuce, repackages bulk meats, make your own tortilla chips, make milk from powdered milk and shred your own cheese? I know I don't but I could be saving even more money if I was willing to give up some convenience foods. I also won't be giving up my Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Extract for the 16-ounce bottle at Costco. Yes it is cheaper but there is a great difference in flavor. Yes I've done some taste tests with the cheaper vanilla.

So while you read this book you can take all your personal preferences into consideration. Sometimes saving a few pennies just isn't worth the inconvenience. I will say however I use her advice about using baking soda to scrub pots and pans.

Some of the most valuable information in this book is the websites where you can find printable coupons. There is a list of websites in the back of the book. There is also some information on how to use the author's website which I found to be useful.

One of the things I think is amazing is how Stephanie Nelson can remember all the prices of all the foods she is buying.

There was a time when I would walk up to the checkout at the grocery store and pray that my bill would PLEASE be under $200...Pretty please? That's $200 a week. You see our budget was $150 a week, but it was unrealistic for us. I could never stick to it. So I would pray for $200. $50 more wouldn't make that much of a difference right? Wrong.

I had wanted to get into the whole coupon game for a long time, but every time I started I would get so overwhelmed. Or I would go on a health kick and think that there is no way we could eat healthy and use coupons. I mean coupons are just for junk food! Right? Wrong.

There was a shift in how we handled our finances in our household and all of a sudden that $150 budget I had set up for groceries? Well, I was suddenly being forced to stick to it. Which meant I really needed to rethink how I grocery shopped.

I have to be honest here, it was more her website that helped me initially, but when I picked up the book and read it through... it all came together.

So much so that I myself am now somewhat of a coupon queen. I even have my own frugality blog (linking it here seems spammy though...you can google family friendly frugality to find it), where I share great deals and money saving tips. Oh how my life has changed because of the Coupon Mom!

If you are down on your luck and struggling to make ends meet, or just need a bit of help with your grocery bill...I suggest you buy this book. It will MORE than pay for itself. If you can't afford the book, check out her site. She has most of what is explained in the book on her site as well.

From grocery store flunkie to frugality blogger...if that's not a testimonial to the power of this book...I'm not quite sure what else could be!
