UPDATE 2013- the Couponing world has changed for the worst. Probably because of books like this where the information and knowledge is now highly excess to the general public. Back in the day, if you wanted to learn about using coupons you either needed to learn it from someone or take workshops that cost hundreds of dollars. When I first read read this book I feared the coupon market would shift and it did.

Probably because of books like this where the information and knowledge is now highly excess to the general public. Back in the day, if you wanted to learn about using coupons you either needed to learn it from someone or take workshops that cost hundreds of dollars. When I first read read this book I feared the coupon market would shift and it did. People all around the U.S. are cashing in on their knowledge and you can find books and blog galore. You don't even really have to work hard to find the deals because blogs do it for you. I bought this book in 2011 and in 2 years the coupon market has changed so much. Yes, there are still deals to be had but manufacturers are reducing the dollar amount of their coupons and adding more and more stipulations. I use to get great deals on so many things. Now the savings aren't as much. The prices are getting closer and closer to what I pay at Costco or a no name brands. It's disheartening and maybe in a few years the coupon height will have faded and people will forget about it. This book has taught me so much but unfortunately, it's taught everyone else and literally done its part in fracturing the world of Couponing.<\i>

UPDATE: Okay, it's been several month since I've made this review and because of this book I've started saving a few hundred dollars a month. I wanted to get my grocery bill down to $300 a month but I'm not sure that is possible with the time I invest in doing this. I think it depends where you live. I live in Souther Ca. where prices are high and coupon policies suck. Not so much savings on my regular groceries but other items like deodorant, toothpaste, tampons, razors, etc. I get for as low as FREE. Especial toothpaste. I've already got 6 or more tubes that were all free if not moneymakers. There probably is a way to save more but would require more time and effort. If your new to couponing, I'd definitely start with this book.

I am so excited!!!!! This book has shed so much light on how to save money at the grocery store. I have been struggling for years to reduce my grocery bill. I buy generic brands, shop the ads and occasionally use coupons. I have even gone to dollar stores and Mexican supermarkets to save money. Having a husband and two young children my grocery bill comes to about $1000 a month. Yup! 1000 D-O-L-L-A-R-S!!!!! Reducing my grocery bill has been an on going challenge. Pick Another Checkout Lane, Honey has been such an inspiration to read. There are no gimmicks or sales pitches. They tell you exactly what you need to know to save money.

I loved that two young stay at home moms wrote the book. I am sometimes embarrassed to use coupons but this book has given me the confidence to ignore those irrational feelings. I encourage everyone to read this book. Be forewarned it's not going to be a walk in the park to save hundreds of dollars a month. You will have to put your time and effort to save significant savings. It's up to you to decide if your time and energy is worth it. The authors of the book have taken their grocery bills of $800-1000 a month and reduced it down to $150-200 a month. For a few hours a week, I think it's well worth my time and effort. I hope to update this review in a few months to report all my savings. Wish me good luck! ...more

I really liked this book and learned a lot from reading it. I am just getting started with the "super coops" as my friend calls the process of couponing and I think that this book is an excellent jumping off point. I'm not 100% confident in my "coupon binder toting" quite yet but I'll get there. The two women who are the creators of krazycouponlady.com give excellent advice for how to start out with using coupons from the basics to how to save some serious money on groceries.

Not everyone's cup of tea - but as a person who is headed to a fixed-income fiscal cliff, I enjoyed it. Good tips, and full of good humor.

Recommended for those who are new to couponing. For those who have been couponing for awhile may find this a bit boring and nothing new.

Great book for a beginner couponer. I’ve been a couponer for the last 7 years, took a break from it but am getting back into it and this was a good refresher.

The book had some good information in it that I will use. I was disappointed to see barcode decoding in it, even if it was only there to help couponers understand why some of their coupons might be declined, even if they are valid because there are many people who will likely use the information for unethical purposes. Likewise I was sad to see that the authors seem to condone taking peelies off of products that they are not going to buy to use on another product.

Likewise I was sad to see that the authors seem to condone taking peelies off of products that they are not going to buy to use on another product. They indicate that the manufacturer wants you to buy their products and doesn't care which one it is. This argument is incorrect. Speaking as someone who has worked putting those peelies on products, the companies are very specific about which products get them. Peelies are intended to get the customer to buy the product they are on, even if the coupon is good on more than one of the company's products. It may be a new product or one that isn't performing as well as the company would like. The peelie entices customers to try that product and if they are removed by people not buying the product, you are depriving the company of the sales on the item they are specifically trying to push. They are also meant to be a reward for the customer purchasing the product. I find this to be an unethical form of couponing.

Aside from these two points, the book is full of good information. While I don't see a real need to stock up for 6 months to a year, I can understand the stocking up for a short time at least. I will use many of the techniques in my own couponing efforts in the future. ...more

A practical, fun guide to couponing at every level. The writer's are honest about the time commitment to coupon, but their book is so full of helpful hints and time-saving techniques that you can't help but be inspired to give it a try. They even have dozens of tips for saving without clipping any coupons! There are fun cartoons throughout the book that make it a quick read. Also, I found the "best time to buy" annual chart one of the most helpful items in this book. Most of us know that A practical, fun guide to couponing at every level.

This was both helpful and entertaining to read. And I saved 35% on my first grocery shopping trip. ...more

I've always used coupons on my weekly grocery shopping trips. One of the 58 reasons I fell in love with Nick was that he also used coupons. Just a hint to all the single guys out there...it's a real turn on.

While I'll never be an extreme coupon-er, I did want to organize my masses of coupons in a better way. So I chose to make a huge coupon 3-ring binder and we'll see how that works. Putting it together the first time was a massively slow and long process. I think Nick watched about 5 Mad men I've always used coupons on my weekly grocery shopping trips.

Let's just say that I am very inspired to start extreme couponing and spending next to nothing on my groceries. Not that I believe for one second that it is as easy as it seems in this book, but it's still a very interesting concept. My only major note is that this book is several years old at this point, so the resources they refer to on their website have changed a good bit.

I am a big fan of their site so I figured I should read the book to see if there was anything that I was missing on the couponing quest. Basically everything that I read in the book has been on their site KrazyCouponLady.com. Still, I got some laughs out of it from quirky comments made within the book.

I don't actively coupon and don't want to invest the time in going to a bunch of stores, but if you are interested in doing this, this is a great book for newbies. If I had a larger family or room to stockpile, I might do it more. I will be checking out online coupons to stockpile at my local store though to reduce my bill. hey, you do what you can! I learned more about the online coupons and how to organize a coupon book and I will be checking out their website for more ideas and deals.

Even though a lot of the same information from the book is found on the KCL website, I still found it was worth my time to read the book. It was a fast read, and I appreciated the personal accounts Joanie and Heather included on how couponing has helped their families. The detailed explanations of how to match a coupon to a sale, or pair it with a store coupon were helpful, too. I also have a better idea of how to create a stockpile that is tailored to the needs of my family.

This is the second couponing book I've read, and I thought this one had some good advice that the first one didn't. I'm not quite as in love with the author -I don't always agree with some of her coupon policies and I feel like she can get a little more out of control than I'm comfortable with at this point. Still a great tool and a great resource for someone looking to start couponing - just take this one with a grain of salt and don't let her bully you.

Any book that can give me, Mrs. Frugal Shopper, some help in cutting her grocery bill deserves four stars. The information on buying coupons off the internet and the coupon policy of several major stores was extremely helpful. Also the breakdown in the different types of coupons was good information. However, I could have done without the seemingly endless parade of testimonials. I don't need to know what other people think of your information, I just need your information.

So, after reading this book, I feel like I know more than I ever needed to about couponing. I feel like I'm an expert at getting lots of free toothpaste. But for some reason, I still haven't been able to stock pile food! And that's what I really want, lots and lots of free food, but it's not working out for me so far. :o(

I used coupons when I was young and married, but when we had kids gave it up. Never seemed to be enough hours in my day. I came across this coupon website and found the book that they had wrote. Read it and learned a lot of valuable tips! I saved 40% at the stores this week!
I'd say the book was worth my time!

This book didn't teach me anything I already didn't know about couponing. I throughly read her website before I read the book and learned everything off of the website. The website is great, the book is just about the same though. The book was a fast read and easy to understand, and had added humor.

Mar 02, 2012

Here's the thing: pretty much all of this information is readily available on their website, so you don't really NEED to read this book to begin couponing. That being said, the book is easy to read and very practical. Joanie and Heather explain not just how to coupon but also WHY. Their writing style is enjoyable and easy to follow.

I was already couponing my little heart out, this book gave me even more info and tips to maximize my savings. Just remember saving big bucks by couponing doesn't happen overnight. It's a process you have to build on, but you will realize one day that you will refuse to pay above a certain price for groceries and your pantry will be stocked!

This book really narrows down how you can save using coupons. I especially liked chapter 6 which talks about how to build a coupon binder which makes finding your coupons without a lot of effort. Chapter 5 also refers to the "anatomy of the coupon" and I found this very helpful! Good book if you want to really find out if couponing is for you.

I've been wanting to learn how to coupon for a long time, especially now that we have many diapers and baby items to buy. I loved the personality of this book. It made couponing seem like something I might actually be able to accomplish. I'm still totally overwhelmed but I feel armed with good information and ready to get out there and save!

I have been doing "couponing" for 3 years now, but wanted to read this book for awhile. Overall, I think it is a better book for beginning couponing, but I appreciated the thoughts on stockpiling other things. I do always think it's great how people can save so much by really understanding couponing. I also appreciated the personal experiences in the book. I am going to look at the Web site.

As a guy - I'm not totally sure I should own up to having read this book. Jokes aside, this is a quick read and serious gem for anyone looking to save money and develop good spending habits. I credit the Demer's advice with immediately bringing my grocery bill down by 40% after reading this book.
