The Lazy Couponer: How To Save Over $25,000 Per Year In Just 45 Minutes Each Week
Author: Jamie Chase
The author of this book makes everything sound so simple to do. However, not all of us live near stores with all of the luxuries of her stores. She combines different couponing methods
for an item to make it totally free, but like I said, we don't all have these luxuries at our fingertips.
Chase talks about peelies, blinkies, catalinas, tags, doubled coupons, etc. The store where I shop has none of these luxuries. So much for reading this book...
However, I do use a good ol' fashion coupon from the Sunday newspaper when I can.

She does talk about scouring the internet for printable coupons which I have done in the past. She goes on to explain that some women's magazines have good coupons that pay for the magazine itself, such as "All You" magazine. I had a subscription to such magazine and did not ever see such coupons that people claim are in such magazine.
The best idea the author talked about in her book is to set up a coupon exchange box in your local library and/or church. My local library has one. You can either bring coupons in or out. There are many people who do not want to be bothered with coupons. It is nice to go to the library and know that the coupon fairy left some coupons!
All in all, this book was basically a waste of time to read. Maybe people in big cities with big grocery store chains would find it more useful as I am not from a big city and at the mercy of a smaller store.
