Two years ago, Beth Montgomery of Fishers, Indiana, started a blog called ingoodcents.com .
She initially started the blog to teach her family and friends how she took her family's grocery bill from $200 to $50 a week!
Now, the site gets more than 50,000 hits a month from people wanting to do the same.
Beth told us she realized she needed to change her spending habits when she became pregnant with her first child.
"When Addy was born, I really wanted to stay home so badly and we actually lived on one income," said Montgomery.
Knowing she needed to save money, Beth started to learn how to use coupons. "What the manufacturers and stores want you to do is, in the week that you get your coupon inserts in the mail, they want you to take those coupons, cut them out right then and head to the store. And the problem with that is, that's not the best time to use your coupon. Usually you want to wait three to four weeks and then use it," said Montgomery.
As she started to save money and added two more kids to her family, Beth began sharing where to find the best deals on her blog.
"Facebook is the place to be right now, not only for sharing deals and it's really good free advertising, but not only for that, it's also the place to be for deals right now," said Montgomery.
Beth said she loves shopping at Old Navy and always looks on Facebook before going because it usually has valuable coupons on its site.
And while you may cut a coupon or two from your Sunday paper, Beth keeps every ad sorted by month.
Before every shopping trip, she'll look at that month's folder to see if there's a coupon for something she needs.
Although she loves regular coupons, Beth told us she sees more people using "e" or online coupons.
"The e-coupons, you go online and you have like your Kroger Plus card and you just click load, load, load, load, load, load and they load onto your card. And I love them for the fact that if you forget your coupons a lot, they come off. You don't have to remember them, you don't have to remember to hand them to the cashier because they're automatically going to come off," said Montgomery.
Beth told us couponing does take time at first, but with so many different ways to get coupons these days it's not that hard to find ways to save.
"I say if you spend one hour a week preparing to shop then you can just run in and out of the store and you're not spending as much time there," said Montgomery.
Besides blogging, Beth also holds classes on how to coupon. If you'd like to schedule a "coupon party" just go to her blog and send her an email.
