Kelley is a winner of Top 25 Couponing Moms - 2013

What advice would you give to a mom who wants to start couponing?

My advice for a mom who wants to start couponing is to learn how to coupon and save money at your own pace. Educate yourself first by reading the store coupon policies and get answers to your questions from the cashier/manager at your store. Start watching the sales in the weekly ads for the items you use the most. I also suggest just shopping at two stores when you first start out. Chasing after every deal at multiple stores can get stressful and you will get frustrated very quickly! Also, it's best to make a list before you shop, match sales with coupons and train yourself to only shop off your list!

How much do you save yearly using coupons?

Last year I was able to save around $600 a month! We had enough extra money to pay down some of our debt and pay for a family of four trip to Disney World without using one single credit card. We paid cash for everything from park tickets, our resort room, souvenirs, even the plane ride down to Florida was paid for in cash! If we didn't save money with coupons each month, that would not have been possible! We are currently saving for our next Disney trip in December 2013!

What is the best resource you've found for finding coupons?

The best resource I've found for finding coupons is inside the Sunday Newspaper and on Coupons.com I also find occasional coupons on the Social Media websites Facebook and Twitter.
