About

Hey guys, my name is Tanya. I’m 22 years old and I am definitely an extreme couponer! I would say I’m not the typical extreme couponer though. I’m a full time student, I work part time and I spend my free time clipping coupons and searching for great deals.

For me, it started January of 2010 when I was looking at my finances and realized the credit card bills, student loan payments and ridiculous grocery bills were piling up endlessly!

My friend Eric sent me a link to a youtube video of a news segment in the US where a woman was able to use coupons to lower her grocery bill of $400 down to $0.01. I was blown away and with all the recent financial stress thought, if she can do it why can’t I? I spent 4 hours researching coupons that night and the possibility of doing exactly what that woman did.

The next day, I printed out 2 coupons, went to my local Zellers and got a large bottle of Motrin and a bottle of shaving cream for $1.47 including taxes. Yup, I was officially hooked. After researching all the different coupon sources, signing up for various websites, and learning about store policies it wasn’t long before I started getting many of my regular groceries for free.

Now, it’s not exactly as easy as it sounds. It takes a lot of work, and couponing in Canada isn’t as easy as it seems in the states, like shown on TLC’s Extreme Couponing. Here, the cashiers need to enter each of your coupons manually. They do not scan them here unfortunately. Another thing is, we don’t have the abundance of coupons here that they do in the States. There are rarely coupons for vegetables, meats and dairy products, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth it.

Since January of last year I have saved over $10,000 using coupons alone and was able to make a hefty donation of over $1000 of non-perishable food items to my local food bank during Christmas of last year for the small price of $80. Coupons go a LONG way. I no longer have credit card debt and am paying off my student loan AS I’m going to school.

Couponing will help you, your family and improve whatever financial situation you are in. It has definitely done all those things for me.
