Couponers United

About

Mary Edwards Couponers UnitedI feel like I know so many of you already from all of your wonderful comments, emails, and questions, so I thought I’d share a little about my family and I. I’m a work at home mother of 4 living just outside of Orlando. .

I began couponing not long after my decision to be a stay at home mom. Just before my 3rd child was born, I left my job as a nurse to be home with my children. Couponing has REALLY helped make ends meet, especially now with the current economy. I started “super couponing” and stockpiling about 2yrs ago.

Why did I start this blog?

At first, I started blogging to keep track of spending, and to keep up on the sale schedules. When family & friends started noticing that my pantries were always stocked (and sometimes overflowing) and I was spending LESS than ever before, they were intrigued. I wanted to help them and encourage them, so I started blogging even more. I started sharing deals, tips, and finally ad matchups. As the interest grew, I started offering free coupon classes in the area. I really do enjoy helping others save as much as possible. The classes I teach are a lot of fun! I learn something new at every class.
And now, I absolutely LOVE reading comments & emails about how much YOU are saving!! .

I wanted to ask you how to submit something and to verify authenticity. I have something I would like to share but not sure if it is something you want. Please contact me through my email and I will discuss this further with you.

Great blog. I’ve just started a Orlando area savings blog as well. Mine is more geared toward single/no children. Maybe sometime we can collaborate?! :)

I’d love to do a joint event sometime!

What a great class you had this morning at St. Paul’s in Ocoee! I’m a real noob so the detailed explanations really helped.

I should have asked, but forgot, when you suggested filing the coupons by date, did you mean by the expiration date? Because that seems the most logical to me. If by date received, why is that?

Thanks again for your awesome ministry!

Mary March 26, 2011 at 2:50 pm

Cheryl-you’re very welcome.
You file them by the date you get them (the date of the sunday paper they come in) Thats because when you see a matchup it will tell you to “get the coupon out of the xyz paper-the date it’s in – for example:

Huggies $5.99
-$2 off coupon from the 3/27SS insert (smartsource)
Total: $3.99

Hi Mary! My name’s Mike Smith and I’m a marketing consultant. I wanted to know if you can post an advertisement for me for a huge Groupon deal that will be of interest to many consumers around the country. It’s a teeth whitening kit deal that will be featured in the Groupon Atlanta market by Smile Bright Teeth Whitening company. The last time this deal was featured in Atlanta, 2074 consumers purchased it. This time we are hoping that consumers around the country will purchase this deal. The deal is for $38 for a teeth whitening kit (normal value $99). The deal will be featured on April 22nd on Groupon Atlanta….Thanks!

I got your website from a very nice lady I bumped in to at our local Publix. I was out on my ‘first ever’ couponing mission armed with my total of five coupons! Which seem rather insignificant compared to her huge folder!!
But I was so pleased when I only spent about $5 having saved $6!
I would love to know when you next have a class so I could learn more. Today I managed to save around $20 on my $240 order, but I know I could have done better. Still it’s a good start!
Thank you for sharing
Michelle

Just wanted to say thank you Mary! I attended your coupon class this morning at Trinity United Methodist Church in DeLand invited by our wonderful hostess and friend Jennifer via Facebook plus other public announcements. It was great to see so many people interested not only in saving money and time but also how to help their local food pantries or charities.

I have been using coupons for most of my adult life, but with your time saving valuable tips plus your web site I am excited to take it to a whole new level. It’s amazing to think how full our own pantries plus those of our community will be putting the information you gave us into motion.

You are a blessing to those your serve!

You’re welcome. I REALLY enjoy teaching these classes. I love to see the excitement and then a week or so after the class I see attendees posting their savings & deals :-) Makes me smile!! Thanks so much for coming

aware of. Thanks for your tips.

You mentioned in the past that your sister was a “Scentsy” consultant. I went on their website to purchase some and could not locate a consultant nearby. Can you give me information on how to contact your sister to purchase some scentsy products?

Previously you would post the upcoming Publix weekly ad matchups at least one day in advance, usually on a Tuesday or Wednesday. It seems those are not posted anymore. Why the change? Will it change back?

Also, previously I could check the items I wanted and print a shopping list. This feature does not appear to be available anymore. Will that change back?

Thank you.

Mary August 1, 2012 at 8:30 pm

Yes- the ads will be up on Tuesdays again next week. I’ve been out of town.

THe list function has been working for me. Not sure why it’s not for you. Possibly try a different browser?

Hi Mary, I just love your website. I check you website multiple times every day! I actually have a question about how exactly you went about building your website and obtaining all the adverstisers that you have on it. My daughter is 13 and started a Instagram less than a year ago geared solely to cheerleading. She has acquired over 90k followers from all over the world and has recently started a website EVERYDAYIMCHEERLEADING.COM. Originally we were going to charge a membership for the website but that was not very successful so we made a decision to make it free and try to capture some revenue through advertisers on the website. My daughter has also been interviewed by our local news (tbo.com and search cheerleading reality show). We are in the Tampa Bay area but frequent Orlando alot and I would love to sit down with you and pay you for your time to pick your brain about how we could go about building our website advertisers like you have accomplished. You can email or call me on my cell (813) 300-0511. Thank you again for your awesome website!!

Hi Mary, I live in Illinois and will be coming to Orlando for vacation in a couple of weeks. I hope to use your blog for coupon deals while in the area so I can save money on food for a rental house full of people. We’re going to Disney for a couple of days and the beach for other days. Do you have any tips related to Disney? For example, when to get there, what snacks to bring, etc. I’d appreciate any advice you can offer. Thanks and God bless!
Jill

I’m trying to understand the kraft block cheese bogo. It does not show block in publix ad. Shredded and chunk. I got the coupons for block off of coupons .com with the scenario. I want to go to walmart and use it. How do I convince walmart that publix has the deal? and do I give cashier one coupon and two cheese blocks for the deal? I went to a publix that did not show the deal. They scan it on their gun and it show the bogo on the blocks of cheese

Mary June 3, 2014 at 6:46 pm

Kraft cheese blocks are the same as kraft chunk cheese :-) Same thing ;)
