Welcome! I’m Callie, the owner here at ConfessionsOfACouponHolic. I’m a money saving mama always on the hunt for a good deal, and a coupon to use to pinch those pennies! Let me tell you a little bit about myself and give you a face behind the name.
My savings journey began back in early 2012. I was a newlywed military wife suddenly dropped in a new state that I knew nothing about. My husband was always gone, due to being in the Navy, and it was just me by myself in Washington. It’s a very strange feeling relocating suddenly to a new place where you know absolutely nobody or where anything is, military spouses out there get me on that! But, I was determined to get acclimated in my new surroundings and I did so by first visiting local stores around me. While I was in Target I came across a woman with a HUGE, I’m not even exaggerating, shoe box filled with clipped coupons. I’d never seen this before, someone carrying around a large amount of coupons inside a store. I watched and observed as she walked aisle to aisle grabbing items off shelves and taping her coupons to them, before placing them in her cart. I ended up bumping into her at the checkout about an hour later, she was in front of me in line, and what I saw next literally amazed me. I watched her total go from hundreds, down to just dollars, and I couldn’t believe my eyes. I stopped her and asked how in the world she just did that, and her words to me were “Google the words extreme couponing and you can learn too!” I went home later that day and did just that. I spent hours upon hours searching online how to get started and save money by using coupons.
Fast forward 4 years later and here we are, I have an enormous stockpile and I can support my family by using coupons! I don’t pay full price for ANYTHING and I’m always looking for a way to help someone save money. I started sharing the deals I came across on my Instagram with others and from there it grew, and now here I am! This blog is my baby, something I’ve been wanting to share with all of you for a long time. My dream for my blog is to help you learn how to save money on a daily basis, and one day share the same passion for saving money as me.
If you find my blog to be helpful, feel free to share it with others who want to learn how to coupon and save money too! Happy couponing, I can’t wait to share all the latest and hottest deals out there with you.
