What I'm Reading - Couponing for the Rest of Us

My Thoughts

One of the things I love about this book is that Kasey breaks down couponing in a way that everyone can do it. When I have heard the stories of those who extreme coupon, I couldn't imagine having the time to do it. This book is for everyone like me - those who want to coupon to save money but don't want it to consume an overabundance of time that we don't have to offer. I love that Kasey shares her story of how she got started couponing at a time when they were struggling financially and then goes on to lay out how to do it. She gave answers to questions in a way that applied to every day life. I also love that she shared how to help others by couponing. That it is not only about helping our own families, but those in our community as well.
