There are so many deals on the internet that it would be IMPOSSIBLE for me (MrCoupon) to keep up!! I want to introduce you to some of the behind the scenes contributors on the WeUseCoupons blog that you will see from time to time! The first one is Tammilee from Tammilee Tips. I asked her to write a little intro about herself, and her blog! Please join me in welcoming Tammilee to WeUseCoupons!
My path to using coupons and sales was unplanned and truly a blessing. The week we were married in September of 2008, we found out that my job was going to be moved out of state. We suddenly went from a 2 income family to 1 with my larger income disappearing. I started looking around the Internet to see what others were doing to save money. Prior to this point I am not sure that I had ever used a coupon at the grocery store. I had used them at Macy’s for discounts on shoes and clothes but not for food. It was a revelation that you could save so much money with coupons.
I started with one paper and a sale at the grocery store and was amazed that I had saved so much money. I was quickly hooked on using coupons and saving money with them. I started stalking the websites and sales ads to see what I could save on. Over time I was talking about saving money and using coupons so much that people started asking how to do it. That is how Tammilee Tips was started. I wanted to find a way to share my love of coupons with everyone I knew.
This past year we were featured on TLC’s Extreme Couponing. It was an amazing experience to be able to share my love of coupons with so many people. We really try to coupon to not only help fill our pantry but also our friends, family and the local food bank. Coupons have truly changed my outlook on spending money and living life to the absolute fullest.
I look forward to sharing great coupon savings, here on WeUseCoupons and of course sharing some of my tips with you!
