This Couponing to Disney story comes from my reader Jessica..
I started following your blog about 1 year ago. I had been couponing for about 3 years and had finally gotten a good flow going. I started to consign my children’s clothes, garage sale items we didn’t need or put a free ad in the paper, signed up for about 3 really good survey companies (per your recommendation of course), and submitting even more rebates than before, because of your website and all the wonderful information for these items.
In the 3 years prior to discovering your site, I would just deposit the money in our checking account to never see it again. When I started separating the money from surveys, sales, and rebates I managed from July of 2011-Mar of 2012 to save a little over 800.00 dollars. We were able to book a 7 night 8 day cruise in March and while I didnt have enough to pay for the cruise, I was able to buy plane tickets, book a hotel for one night before cruise, rent a car for travel between airport/hotel/port terminal, parking, some vacation clothes, and even enough left for spending money.
If if wasn’t for all you have taught me in the last year I would just be a regular couponer who was just saving a little on groceries. With your knowledge and site I have now cut my grocery budget to where it should have been years ago, will be going on a disney cruise and will continue to follow your site because without you and all you do, my family wouldnt have been able to enjoy a real stress free vacation on the new disney fantasy cruise ship. I can say with Kristin and her site couponingtodisney my family is better for it. So thank you and all you do.
