One Forsyth mom has taken coupon cutting to a whole new level. The proof…she cut her grocery bill by more than $100 a week. Now she wants to share her saving skills with you free of charge!
Emily St. Peter is a mother of three and self-taught coupon guru. In the beginning she spent four hours a week looking to save with coupons.
"I was a little obsessed with checking every website ten times a day.”
Now, Emily spends an hour a week cutting and filing and another hour grouping coupons.
“If you combine those coupons with the manufacturer coupon with an item that's on sale you can get that item for free or even sometimes you can make some money on that item as well,” explains Emily St. Peter.
Emily doesn't just buy one newspaper every Sunday to fulfill her coupon needs. She buys six to take full advantage of her saving opportunities.
"There are a lot of tricks of the trade that you don't know until you begin to do this."
Getting away from brand loyalty can help you save, and keeping an eye on expiration dates will allow your food to go a long way.
Emily’s weekly grocery bill for her family of five, went from $200-$250 a week to just $75. Keeping her pantry full, along with her wallet!
