After seeing those ultimate couponer's on TV, I thought, `No way, not me.'

Well, I definitely won't be taking it as far as those extremists do, but this book was a great encouragement to find what I feel comfortable doing and challenged me to look into easy ways to take it a step further.

I did learn two really interesting things that will be changing the way I do my shopping. First, stores have pricing cycles. Any particular item can fluctuate in price, so you get the same exact item at a different cost depending on when you buy it. That same box of Cheerios can range in price during a month's time from $2.00 to $3.50. Price watching can automatically save you money even before you pull out a coupon. If you use a coupon when those Cheerios are at the bottom of its pricing cycle then that item goes even lower. Wow.

Secondly, I need to stock up on these great deals for when the great deals aren't available. We will always need toilet paper (true dat), so when it is at the bottom of the pricing schedule and I have ten coupons, I need to buy ten of them. This is an uncomfortable place for me. I do not need ten of these right now, but I will in the upcoming weeks use them all, so why not buy them at their lowest possible cost??? A little pre-planning and a bit of closet space will save me in the long run and ultimately lower my grocery bill each week.

So now I only have one question for you...... How low can YOU go?

The publisher sent me the above book for review purposes. It will allow me to keep the book. I have no other connection to and have received no other compensation from Revell/Baker Publishing Group.

What a relief! Someone who shows people how to use coupons like a normal person, not someone on a TV show! Kasey did a great job of explaining a realistic approach to couponing and how to break it down into a way that works for real people. If you're looking to save money without looking like a crazy person or talking five-hour-long shopping trips to stock pile random crap you won't ever use THIS is the book for you! Excellent.

This book is not like any other couponing book you will find. It is so much more! Kasey Knight Trenum has the most honest, humorous and, at times heart-warming perspective on couponing. She admits that she doesn’t “like” couponing but explains how it is simply a means to help provide for her family.

This book is the perfect tool for beginning couponers. Kasey has a great way of explaining every aspect of couponing in a simple to understand manner while at the same time sharing her own light-hearted stories that provide insight to all the information she is giving you. You will find yourself learning and laughing, even sometimes crying all at the same time!

Kasey walks you through each step of couponing from where to get the coupons, organizing your coupons, how to use them, what to buy, where to buy and even how to store the abundance of food you will inevitably acquire through couponing all while saving your family money!

Unlike a lot of “extreme couponing” books, shows and/or websites Kasey stresses the need for morals, ethics and integrity when couponing which is, in my opinion, sorely lacking in the world in general not just when shopping. She teaches how she has saved so much money for her family that it has allowed her to give to people in need and encourages us to do the same.

I believe this book will not only change your family’s financial situation but will also teach you how to find peace when faced with economic instability and hardships.

As soon as I saw this book I knew it was written for me. I've seen the Extreme Couponing shows on TV and they really get me fired up. BUT (and this is a big "but") it just isn't realistic for me. In fact, it seems like a lot of big stores have tightened their coupon policies since the shows started airing. That makes it harder for the regular people to get the most out of their coupons.
Kasey Knight Trenum has put together a reasonable outline for us to get the biggest bang for our buck. You probably aren't going to check out with thousands of dollars of groceries for less than a hundred bucks, but you will most definitely find something in here that helps you be the money-savvy person that you long to be.
Let me also say that the length of the book is perfect. It's not too long that I got lost in the process. My only small critique is that I thought it spent a bit too much time selling me on the process of couponing. I had already made the decision to coupon and was anxious to get down to the nitty-gritty. That said, it's nice to know your readers highly anticipate the material, right?
Thank you, Kasey, for simplifying the coupon concept in such a way that we can "get it." I do recommend this book, and I expect it will become one of my "loaners."
This book was a free gift from the publisher in exchange for my unbiased review.

Are you looking for a book to help you get started in saving money for your family? Think it will be too time consuming or complicated? If you have any interest in coupons and saving money in your monthly budget this book is a great buy. The author uses her own life examples to help explain the different ways to save. I gave this book 5/5 stars. I thought the author did a great job of simplifying the saving process. She shows that even busy people can take a few minutes and save money every week. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a simple and easy to understand help book about saving your family money.

I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
