Kristin is a winner of Top 25 Couponing Moms - 2013

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

Patience is a virtue! Start off by taking 15-20 minutes out of your day to check out deals at your local grocery store and when you find a great deal, buy in bulk.
When I first started, it took me a while to get in the hang of juggling my job as a mother and trying to help my family save money, so don't overwhelm yourself. Take it one day at a time.

How much do you save yearly using coupons?

I have a family of 6 in my household. Since I began, I have saved my family about $5,000 a year using coupons, including groceries, clothing and household items. It doesn't seem like much, but since I began couponing, we have been able to build up our emergency fund and stopped living paycheck-to-paycheck.

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

I don't think can't really name "the best" resource, because there are several different ones that have assisted me in finding coupons. If you subscribe to certain companies that you purchase from often, occasionally they will send you coupons, deals or even freebies to your e-mail. Newspapers work amazing for me, as do online coupons.
