Product Description

My name is Janice Kitson. My friends all laughed when I said that I was going to start saving money from coupons... but when I walked home one week having only paid $25 for my weekly groceries they all wanted to learn how I did it.


Seven years ago, two life altering events happened to me within one week: I delivered my first baby, and I took a year’s leave from work. I spent the next two weeks in a panic-induced haze so thick I had to scrape it from my eyes when I
woke each morning. I was in a panic, how was I going to make ends meet, let alone save for our future?

This book is the story of the system that I used to reduce my grocery bill by over 50% week in week out and got my life back together.

Imagine the feeling of being in control knowing that your grocery budget has been cut in half. This isn't magic, but a well developed system of organisation and planning that allows you to maximise your grocery savings.

From my system you'll learn the fundamentals about:

Sales cycles, stacking, clipping and stockpiling
How to use online tools to find the low point of the sales cycle (including many free ones)
Discover why some coupon wannabes quit and lose out on the real savings to be had
The places to find the best coupons, both online and offline.
Step by step examples of using these tools and strategies to save more than 75% off many common items.
How to get organised so that you only spend a few hours each week getting organized.
Additional tips to help you save money on other items like fresh fruit and vegetables.

If you are after a proven system to reduce your grocery bill, pick up your copy today.

Please note: This book is aimed at US consumers only.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not just another extreme couponing book! April 14 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wasn't expecting much, to say the least. I've been using coupons for years and years to save money, but I'm a far cry from the extreme couponers I've seen on TV. I just don't have the interest, time or extra storage space they have (is there really such a thing as extra storage space? Really?)
But this well-written, well organized book is perfect for me and others who may not want to go all the way to the extreme, but do want to be able to use coupons in a profitable and organized way. I'm looking forward to establishing my own reasonably sized stockpile of things I use all the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Coupon Book I Have Ever Seen!!! April 8 2012
By Maggie & Brooke - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I must admit I am a skeptic about using coupons and perhaps a bit lazy, too.

The nice thing about Janice's book is she shows you exactly how to save the most money, but also shows you that you don't have to feel guilty about not being an extreme coupon person and save a little money by not being afraid or too lazy to at least use some coupons.

The things that she lays out so perfectly makes even me want to try to use coupons. With the economy the way it is, we can all stand to save some money.
This book gives you websites that help make it so much easier for you.

Now, all I have to do is get more organized and she even tells you how to do that.

Great Book!! You really must try her recommendations. Buy it for yourself and give it to some of your friends and family that need to save money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good information - if you don't know it already April 16 2012
By Hazel Philbrook - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In the first chapter of this books this advice was on the order of 'to save money buy frozen orange juice rather than reconstituted from the refrigerator case". Come on - most people could figure that one out without a book. When the author got into coupon use her ideas were both reasonable and do-able for busy people. I didn't find them particularly new but I then again I have used coupons to save grocery money for years. If using coupons is new to you the advice is sound. I got the book as a free kindle choice and I read it all. If you have not consistently used coupons in the past you could pick up some good advice from this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Yet another MegaCouponing book Jan. 8 2013
By Nyssa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Like so many other books promising super savings on groceries, this one relies almost exclusively on couponing techniques that have been popularized on television and in magazine articles.

Unfortunately, this megacouponing is impractical for most consumers, especially if your grocery purchases consist mostly of fresh foods rather than packaged, overly-processed foods and snacks and other junk foods. Using coupons may save you a few dollars on items such as paper goods or toiletries, but the claims of huge savings on your monthly grocery bills usually is not much more than hyperbole.

The author stresses the use of coupons, stockpiling, and tracking sales cycles to buy at the low points of the price curve to maximize the projected savings. This involves a lot of researching grocery stores, searching coupon sites online, as well as tracking individual item categories plus the clipping, printing, and sorting of coupons. There are examples given of websites that help with this effort along with screen shots to illustrate how to use them with actual products and coupons. Ideas for where to find coupons are also discussed.

To her credit, the author does mention buying products in season and offers up a chart from the USDA that gives a month-by-month listing of when specific fruits and vegetables are considered to be in-season for planning and price savings. She also offers a few basic tips on meal planning.

Otherwise the bulk of the book is about couponing, price cycles, stockpiling, and ways to maximize the value of each coupon. Of course, this is all based on several assumptions: 1) that you can find coupons for items you actually will use; 2) your local stores have extremely liberal coupon redemption policies including doubling and even tripling the face value of the coupons and accept competitor's coupons; and 3) that you can find the coupon items in the specified sizes and quantities before the coupons expire.

If you've got the time and effort to put into the process, then this book is for you. For me, instead of spending an inordinate amount of time and effort in chasing down a coupon and price cycle and store that allows me to purchase a $2.99 tube of toothpaste for 99 cents, I'll just buy the national brand of toothpaste that is always priced at 99 cents and use the saved time to save money in other ways.

5.0 out of 5 stars Over Deliver Information; that is what Janice Does April 6 2012
By Emily Kim - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought I knew about how to use coupons; clip them out of the paper and cash them in at the store. That TV show that was on for a short time about "Super Coupon Clippers" was way more than real people can handle.

I picked up the book expecting links to a few sites that had coupons, but Janice delivered much more meat than I expected for an average book. Janice went into great detail about market pricing and when to buy at the lowest price, and coupled with the use of coupons.

I feel that this book is a great reference for any one interested in saving money at the super market. The book answers the question: "Does it Really Work?". Janice, your book really does work.
