I am a single mom of three girls that have all grown up on me and am proud to call my best friends. I began couponing in October of 2008 because the girls became so expensive going into their teen years. A target cashier said to me “Wow, you really are Super Coupon Woman” when she rang up over $100.00 in items and my total came to zero. I have been Super Coupon Woman ever since.
I decided to start donating to my local food pantry that had helped me when the girls were younger right after my divorce and trying to make everything work as a single mom. I not only wanted to donate myself but to inspire others to donate to their local food pantries as well.
I started creating challenges for myself to keep donating a priority and reaching out to the news stations to see if they would be interested in sharing my story. My challenge totals would get higher each time. I challenged myself to $500 and then 1,000, $10,000 and $50,000 which led to me helping a lot of people.
I also created the $100,000 coupon challenge on facebook where couponers nationwide could share their donations with the goal of reaching $100k throughout the year and to show how couponing can really make a difference. Together, we shared over $600k in donations. It was hard to get everyone to share their donations on a regular basis, so we haven’t done it the past few years.
I wrote a book teaching how to coupon, save money, and share my pay it forward journey of reaching $100,000 in donations as a single mom. My book is called “Cutting Hunger One Coupon At A Time” I offer the kindle version for only .99 to help more people save money for their family and inspire them to pay it forward in their communities.
I have taken a short break from couponing after the $50,000 challenge, but still donate any unwanted items I have to help others. Super Coupon Woman is going to challenge herself to give back to the community with coupons once again in 2022. To date I have donated well over $300,000 and will always continue to pay it forward to help those in need.
