Reader Testimonial

I just wanted to thank one of my readers, Jennifer, for sending me a testimonial on how Coupons For Your Family helps her save money for her family! It is a wonderful feeling to know that this website is actually helping people same money everyday!! Without comments and emails from my readers, I sometimes wonder who is reading and benefiting from the hours I am at my computer!! Here is the contents of Jennifer’s email:

I don't know if you're ever looking for testimonials…. but I just wanted to let you know that last night, my family and I took an exciting trip to the Target on Amelia Dr in Orchard Park.  I knew we were going so I went through all my coupons, looking for the ones I thought I'd be able to use there specifically and I also perused your Database, looking for Yoplait and various other snack coupons.

My total before coupons/savings was $72.37.  My husband almost flipped because it seemed like all we bought was some Yogurt and Shampoo.  Isn't there a group on Facebook like, I went to Target to buy Toothpaste and spent $50?  LOL.  Anyway….. this is the breakdown of what we got —-
2 pks of Pampers Wipes, 72-ct each. ($2.39 each)
2 Glade Room Spray ($2.50 each)
12-pk Snackwells Cookies ($3.99)
12-pk Nabisco Variety Pack ($3.99)
2 pks Nature Valley Granola Thins ($2.69 each)
1 box Chex Snack Bars ($2.39)
3 pks Crystal Light Pure Fitness, On the Go packs (7 packets inside) ($1.97 each)
14 Yoplait Yogurts (50 cents each)
2 boxes Eggo Waffles ($2.14 each)
1 Old Spice Body Wash ($3.54)
1 Old Spice Deodorant ($3.54)
32 oz. Suave Professionals Humectant Shampoo ($2.64)
32 oz. Suave Professionals Sleek Shampoo ($2.64)
2 all occasion cards, 99 cents each
1 pr. Clearance Paul Frank Pajamas ($9.08)

My coupon breakdown —
$2.00 off Pampers Wipes, I had 2 so my wipes cost me 78 cents for both packs.
BOGO Glade Spray so I paid $2.50 for both sprays
$1 off 2 Nabisco Variety Packs so I paid $7 for both (I consider that a huge coup because those snack sizes can be EXPENSIVE!)
$0.50 off Nature Valley, I had 2
$0.50 off Chex Bars
$2.00 off Crystal Light Pure Fitness, I had 3 so all my CL was FREE!
I stacked some Yoplait Coupons….
    I had $0.45 off 6 and then $0.40 off 6
    I also had B6G1, two of those — equaled $1.85 in Yoplait Savings on $7 of yogurt, which we eat every day (there are 6 of us!)
Target Printable $1 off 2 Eggos
BOGO Old Spice and max value was $3.49 but our Cashier gave us full $3.54 savings
Facebook had a Free Suave Professionals Coupon, I had 2 and Target had the Big Sized shampoos.  Also, one coupon scanned at $2.64 and the other she scanned in for $3.00 so I actually made $0.36 on that one.  2 huge shampoos, $0.18 each!
My GRAND TOTAL was $43.85.  That's a savings of $28.52. 
WOO HOO!  We have saved more in the past, but not for a while so this brought a HUGE SMILE to my face!
And without giving you the whole breakdown… the night before, we went to the BJ's Wholesale Club on Milestrip.  $297.00 for $200.  We saved almost $100 with coupons!  They are also great for stacking coupons… and I know some argue that you actually spend more because you're buying huge sizes of things… we are a family of 6 so those large sizes are the sizes we're almost always looking for.  We probably go to BJ's once a month, on average.  This, to me, was also a VERY PROFITABLE trip!
Thanks for letting me share!  And thanks for the great coupon database!  I love knowing I will probably find what I'm looking for for MY FAMILY with your coupons!
