I am new to using Coupons, where do I begin?

I would first recommend watching my Coupons 101 Video Series, I go over where to find coupons all the way to how to use FREE items to make a meal plan.  I recommend starting off slow, buy 1 Sunday paper and set a budget for how much you want to be spending every week.  Once you have set your budget, stick to it.  I always recommend using cash for your groceries, on average people spend less money using cash than they do using plastic.

I emailed you asking you for a local coupon blogger like you said in your Coupons 101 videos series, why haven’t you gotten back to me yet?

Due to the increasing amount of emails that I receive looking for local coupon bloggers I am no longer able to answer everyone’s emails.  I have a National Blogger Page where you can find Bloggers from across the country.  I have almost every grocery store covered – so check out my National Blogger Page.

I have my coupons cut and organized, but am still so overwhelmed, help me!

The first thing to do is calm down and relax. Couponing is a journey not an event.  You will not go out and get thousands of dollars of groceries on your first trip, but you may save a few dollars!  Pick a small deal and get in your car and go.  Many people don’t start because they get paralyzed at how much information there is.  Using coupons gets easier over time, but if you never get in your car and try out deals, you will never learn.  Once you get your first great deal you won’t be able to wait until you get in the store next time, but sometimes the first deal is the hardest to get yourself to do.

I am seeing all of these Abbreviations like RP, SS, and P&G, what do these mean?

It almost seems like Couponers have their own language.  Head on over and read my Coupon Lingo post to help you learn how to speak our language!

I can’t print any online coupons, can you help me?

Coupon printing can sometimes be difficult.  Sometimes you may have already printed a coupon that I recommend. I recommend switching browsers first, if you are using Internet Explorer switch to Firefox and vice versa.  You can also try clearing your cookies/cache to see if this helps.

How can I make money online at home?

Here I’ve listed my favorite ways to make money online at home.

I am spending so much money on ink, what are some tips on saving money on printer ink/toner?

I would recommend investing in a laser printer if you can afford one, you don’t have to spend a lot of money on one.  I actually spent $55 on a Brother Laser printer a year ago and have only had to purchase 1 Toner cartridge since then, for only $40 on Amazon.  You can also read my post on the printer that I use.

I want to make my own coupon binder, where do I get my supplies?

I made a quick video that shows you how to set up your own Coupon Binder here.

Why did you delete my comment on Facebook or as a comment on this page?

As the owner of this page I have the right to delete comments that I do not see as positive or unfit for the site.  I have such great Facebook Fans and readers that I do not want any negativity to affect the fun and community atmosphere here at ‘I am THAT lady’, you can read more about my commenting policy here. If I see a comment that I feel is strictly for advertising your own website or contains your personal affiliate link, it will be deleted.

Can I copy some of your blog content to my blog?

All text, original photographs, and content on are copyrighted .You may not copy and paste blog posts in their entirity, and are not to be using without written permission.  If you do see a great deal, you are more than welcome to copy a paragraph and then link back to the rest.  If you would like to feature my weekly coupon matchups, you can contact me and I will be happy to add you to my email list of who I share my matchups with.

Do you make money on your blog?

Yes I do. I work on average of 40 hours per week from home, in between wiping runny noses and changing poopy diapers, if I wasn’t making money I don’t think my husband would love this blog as much as he does. Many of the links that you see on this site are affiliate links, you can read about those in my disclosure policy.  You should know that I do not personally post on deals that I do not think are a great deal.  You can be 100% sure that everything that I post, affiliate link or not, is legit and I have looked into the validity of every deal.  A portion of my proceeds help support many awesome ministries, including Speak Up and Compassion International.

    I can’t find the original post but on 11:10 there was a post for a code to use at to get $25 off when you spend $25+. Well I placed an order and used this then got a notification the code wasn’t good. Has anyone else had this problem? Thank you.

      Misty – it automatically goes to the email you used for payment. So if you used a paypal email, can you check that one? If it’s not there – please email me at lauren{at}
