Have you joined the coupon craze? More and more people are stepping up to bat to play the game. I enjoy the calls I receive from people that have taken a class and want to share their savings and also the calls from people that have been reluctant to coupon. Now that they have seen how much their friends and co-workers are saving, they are ready to give couponing a try. I have found that some of the folks that resisted or hesitated the most are now some of the best couponers.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the average American family of four spends $8,513 per year on groceries — that’s $709 per month! That does not include dining out. By couponing, you could cut 50% off your grocery bill. Get the entire family involved and you can save a lot more. The money saved could be a down payment on a car or maybe even a family vacation.
I don’t know about you, but to me, that is a lot of money. I am sold.
