Karen shopped in Walmart. She said,” I had been writing to companies about their products and they had sent me some fun coupons AND the normal couponing goodies deals too! I did this shopping in one trip (I did miscalculate a few items and ended up a little higher than I expected, but I was still really proud of myself!) They also missed one coupon that would have brought my total down $2, but I needed to get my sweet 9 year old helper Sarah home to bed since it was after 10pm -yikes. This is the best I have ever done!!! Thanks for getting me started and all the local deals you post.”
Note: I am going to from now on only run the Golden Scissors Contest quarterly.
Congrats to these awesome winners!
