I'm halfway through this book and have already gone from 30% to 50% savings on my weekly grocery bills.

While the author does break it down so you're not couponing like a mad man like those ladies on TV there's still some work involved.
ACE
It was a great reminder to me that couponing can saving me large amounts of money in small amounts of time!

I coupon regularly (and write a website about doing so) and was curious to read The Lazy Couponer: How to Save Over $25,000 Per Year in Just 45 Minutes Each Week by Jamie Chase.

Jamie's promise that she can save you money with no stockpiling, no sales chasing and no item tracking is certainly appealing. She had many points that I agreed with - and a couple with which I disagreed.

Let's start with the excellent points that Jamie made.

1. There's always another sale.

Too often, I think we get caught up in catching all the deals - especially when we start finding good deals. If we miss a sale this time around, there will always be another one.

2. If you're denied, don't buy.

There will come a time at the checkout where someone will question your deals or coupons. It happens to the best of us. If you know your sales and that your calculations are right, don't before afraid to walk away from the sale if the cashier doesn't / can't adjust the price. The more I coupon, the easier this is becoming. It's all about confidence, really.

3. Sometimes it is less expensive to actually buy more items.

Here's a case in point from my grocery trip this week. I could have bought 3 Motts individual applesauce packs at 3 for $5. However, I read my sales which said that when you buy 5 packages, you get an additional $5 off your sale price. I paid $3.35 and got 5 packages, rather than paying $5 and getting 3 packages. See how that works?

Now, let's talk about a couple points on which I disagreed with Jamie.

1. Don't stockpile.

Within reason, I think stockpiling is good. Now, I'm not suggesting hoarding by any means!

We bought this book on B&N because we watched a TV show on couponing the day before so we decided to learn more on the subject. It explains all the steps to follow and how the coupons work in the different stores. Now we are ready to take our first trip to the store using coupons next weekend. I also like the fact that the author simplifies the process as much as possible and advises readers to buy only what is needed. Unlike the the TV show where they stockpile tons of products at their houses and spend hours cutting out coupons. (this is my first book review)

I've been couponing for just over two years now and I must admit this book is a bit of fresh air! Within the past year, I've been on a pursuit to climb the cooperate ladder of my place of employment (just because I make decent money doesn't mean I plan to pay full price for anything, especially in today's unstable economy; no job is guaranteed permanent!) However, with my career pursuit that has left little time for my couponing. Soon my coupon inserts were piling up around me, the clipped coupons in my binder are all surely past their expiration date, I felt like I was missing all the great sales (however, I have still been living off my personal beauty product stock since 09/2011 - 9 months from the date of writing this). I was still living under the impression that I needed to clip every coupon and store them nicely in my binder, try to catch every sale and print every coupon I came across. But where would I manage to find the time in my in my already overbooked schedule?! Then I came across this little gem, the author approaches couponing, the way I approach my career pursuit ... work smarter, not harder. Genius! Why didn't I think of that?! The author focuses more on keeping your couponing time down to minimum, to stop chasing every sale and to stop clipping ALL your coupons at one time (a style that is preached by most of the coupon bloggers I follow! A style that clearly doesn't work for me). While some portions of the book maybe a little redundant for those more experienced in the world of couponing, the author offers a few ideas that I never thought of or read anywhere else.Read more ›

This was an excellent purchase for me. I have no idea what I'm doing when I try to use coupons ad I've been turned off by the crazy ladies on TV. The book was well written and I already saved a bunch of money.

This book doesn't have a lot of fresh material if you're familiar with couponing. However, there are several websites she suggests (like deal seeking mom) that are worth looking into. (You never know what you may get into when you google "coupon". So websites that have already been checked out are very helpful.)I also liked her suggestion for bookmarking your frequent websites to save time.

While much of the material is a rehash of terms and such, her attitude about stockpiling and sale chasing is different than many other books. She suggests relaxing, because "there will be another sale". She also doesn't suggest stockpiling huge amounts of items. (Most other books don't suggest crazy stockpiling either- they usually suggest spreading the love around through donations. It's just that tv show that seems to emphasize endless stockpiling.) Her coupon organization is similar to many others- file the entire insert and use databases to cut what you need when you need it. She also suggests printing coupons from the web just before going shopping. (This can be a problem because sometimes the coupons can only be printed so many times before they are gone- so if you see something your family will use- print it and keep track of it.)

Overall, this book is worth reading, whether you are new to couponing or an old hand. There are enough different tips to make it worth your time. A newbie may want to buy it, but for anyone else I would suggest borrowing it from the library.
