walking out of credit counseling and being told that
the only solution left was to allow our house to be
foreclosed on, I was ready
to give up. I had no hope, no options left, no resources.
I had even joined groups about being frugal and saving
money to no avail. Then later that same week I got an
email from one of the groups recommending going to Jill’s
class. I had my doubts.
got there early, went in, sat up front and waited as
Jill started to do her presentation. An hour went by
with me feverishly writing notes about all the different
things and ways she saved money, the resources she used
and the math behind the deals. And I was amazed. I walked
out with my head spinning and I was dizzy. But most
remarkably of all I was hopeful.
I had been given an answer on how to help my family
and make ends meet. I was almost afraid to believe it;
it seemed too good to be true.
I went home and educated myself for the next week, and
when I went shopping the next time that I had money,
I saved. I saved and I saved and
I saved some more. I bought cheese and
cereal and peanut butter and bread and soup and I still
had money left after stockpiling for my family of 7.
I couldn’t believe it the first time I did it
– I stood in the middle of [the supermarket] at
11 PM fighting back tears when I realized what I had
done. I proved that I
didn’t have to lose my house to survive or starve
my family to keep it. Super-Couponing
class is the ultimate Consumer Education!" - Nicole
was a casual coupon user until I took Super-Couponing.
I used to clip my coupons, go to the
store that week, and buy what I thought I needed. Little
did I know that if I had waited a few weeks, I would
have likely gotten that same item for almost nothing.
you leave Super-Couponing, you are no longer a casual
taught me a whole new way to use coupons to my advantage.
I used to think saving 35 cents to $1.00 on an item
was a big deal, until I went to Super-Couponing. Now
I pay very little for my groceries for a family of 6.
Before Super-Couponing, I used to spend about $250 a
week after coupons. Now I spend around $45. No kidding,
no joke." - Pam R.
family just started Super-Couponing this fall. We have
completely changed our shopping and eating experience.
We went from spending
$250 a week to more like $100/week (even
with 3 in diapers!) We now eat a much greater variety
former $250/week was what we thought was bottom of the
barrel -- Wal-Mart/Aldi shopping, only generics, a lot
of cooking from scratch, minimal fresh produce... now
we have bacon-wrapped filet, fresh produce every week,
Kraft cheese, and lots of foods on Jill's deals that
we thought were just too fancy to spend "extra"
on! ... We benefit so much from Jill's
insights (and research!) - Jeanne E.
you so much for being willing to share your experience
with so many people... I
have learned so much and saved hundreds... During
the holidays last year, we had six extra people to feed
for a month and we spent $2500. This year I spent $300
extra than our normal food budget. You inspire me to
find lots of ways to save money for my family."
- Ashburn family
fast moving, very informative presentation. Covered
a lot of bases. I picked up a quite a few pointers I'd
previously had no clue about. I will definitely be devoting
a little more time putting together the deals... her
enthusiasm in sharing her knowledge was obvious. Literally
blew my mind with the opportunities that exist.
In this recession, I don't have many places
to rob Peter and pay Paul. Definitely worth setting
aside an hour of your day. You
gain enough info to pursue huge savings!"
- C. Dolrskolr
just wanted to say thank you' for sharing this amazing
program you have developed. I am a coupon clipper /
user and your presentation
showed me how much more I could be saving. I
was really blown away, and I can't wait to get the Sunday
paper tomorrow, so that I can really start applying
some of the great tips you provided. I am especially
excited to start having store pay me to take things
home instead of me paying them." -
just want to express my gratitude for what you’re
doing. A month ago, I was depressed about being broke,
and now I’m excited about saving money. Seriously,
I made my car payment from the money I saved...
I am totally sincere in saying that I
had much more fun at your class than at my best friend's
wedding last month!"

were little coupon users and were excited about 4-5
dollars of coupons savings. Right now our heads our
spinning and we want to go shopping. We now see it's
necessary to have a plan before we head shopping anywhere...
Your excitement is contagious! With
the economy currently the way it is, this could help
anyone make a huge difference!
Thank you so much!" - Lisa
less than the cost of a fast-food dinner for your family,
you too could change the way you shop... forever!
