WeUseCoupons is turning 4 YEARS OLD today!!
I just can’t believe that.  I started WeUseCoupons on July 9th, 2008 after doing lots of research.  I wanted a website that people could talk to me and I could answer questions.  I never dreamed it would grow into the vibrant community of couponers it has today.  When I started to think of what to call my new website, I thought for a few days.  What could I call a site about coupons?  I was in Kroger shopping with my wife and a lady behind us asked how we dropped our bill from $120 to $30 and we both responded in unison, ‘we use coupons’.  Immediately I knew that’s what I wanted to call the site.  I checked the domain name to see if it was available and within minutes I was the proud owner of WeUseCoupons.com.  I had no idea what I was doing, I don’t do HTML or HLMT.  I started learning about vBulletin, the software WeUseCoupons uses and away I went.

I remember the days when I would chat with myself!  It was fun and every time we got a new member it was an event.  I would run upstairs and tell my wife, someone registered!!  A real person!  As WeUseCoupons grew, I grew with it.  I learned a lot about relationships, about people, about how to run a website (and how not to), about priorities and about what’s most important.

WeUseCoupons is a special place.  It’s not just another website, it’s a life changing site.  People come here to learn, to change, to get help and we TOGETHER provide it.  This site is a blessing to me and so many and for that I am thankful to everyone who has ever been a part of this site.  Building it into what it is today.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping to make your own lives and the lives of those around you better!
