Adventures in Coupons is owned and operated by Stacy, a 31 year old wife and mother from Austin, Texas. Stacy loves a good deal, hates spending money and will do (just about) anything to save it. Growing up “dirt” poor, taught her that money (unfortunately) does not grow on trees and she credits her Dad for teaching her the importance of a good deal and many of the tips and tricks that she still uses in her life today. In 2004, she found herself pregnant with her daughter and added coupons to her money saving arsenal. Now, 9 years later, she still puts those money saving trips and tricks to use in her daily life and teaches others to do the same. If you don’t see her in the store with her coupon box, you’ll find her in front of a computer, blogging away here on Adventures in Coupons, or scratching away with pen and paper as she plans the launch of her second frugal living blog.
She does stockpile, but prides herself on realistic stockpiling. She hates the term “extreme couponing” and instead, promotes realistic couponing. She loves to tell people that you don’t have to buy out the store to save money and instead, promotes (and teaches) good coupon manners and responsibility. Her biggest coupon savings to date has been 102% on an order that retailed for $80.00. She was paid $15.00 to buy the items and took them all home for free. Aside from coupons, Stacy and her family practice a frugal lifestyle on a daily basis. She doesn’t just type the tips found here on AIC, she lives them.
Adventures in Coupons was started in April of 2011 after Stacy had taken a brief hiatus from couponing as a way for Stacy to show her family how to coupon. However, before she realized it, she had amassed a small but loyal following that simply kept growing. Today, AIC reaches more people daily than she ever thought possible. Stacy loves hearing from those loyal readers as well as finding new companies to work with. She can be contacted via her contact page found here and will respond back to you as soon as she possibly can.
