The Creative Princess: All You Champions For Kids - Couponing for Good #CBias

All You Champions For Kids - Couponing for Good #CBias

This month Champions for Kids is teaming up with All You to bring you Couponing for Good.

As most of you know I am a couponer.  No, I am not one of those crazy extreme couponers.  I like to call myself a smart couponer.  I was SO excited when I heard about this Simple Service project from Champions for Kids.  I have been using coupons for good for years so this project was a natural fit for me and I jumped on the chance to sign up.  This month I will be donating to the Grand Lake Community Ministry (aka The Blue House).  They provide assistance to many families in my area not only with food but also clothing, household needs and utility assistance.

Did you know that one in seven Americans receives food stamps?  The overwhelming majority are in
families with children.  Did you also know that every 34 seconds a baby is born into poverty in America.  That is alarming to me!  We have got to take a stand and help these families!  Couponing is an easy, fun, and cost-effective way to help these families by providing them with food and items that they otherwise could not afford.

I know there have been rough times for my husband and myself and we have wondered how we were going to put food on the table.  But, thanks to couponing we have never had to go without and have actually been able to help other families with food.  I may not be able to give you $100 but I can sure give you $100 worth of groceries that I paid little to nothing for.  Whoever thought a simple coupon could be life changing?  I know I never did, but in the past 4 years I have seen first hand just how life changing they can be.

Yesterday I spent my day getting my coupon binder reorganized, printing off coupons and looking at store ads to make my price match list.  After church, I grabbed my binder, shopping list and price match list, and headed to Walmart.  I was able to get around $150 worth of groceries and health and beauty items for just over $75!  That is half off!  AMAZING!

While I was shopping I picked up a copy of All You Magazine.  There are always TONS of coupons and money saving tips inside.  While I did not use coupons from this issue on my shopping trip I do plan to use some soon.

If you are a couponer I would love for you to join me in this months Simple Service project!  You can find more information here.

If you would like to see all of the deals I got and the rest of my shopping trip, head over to my Google+ album.
