Hello, and Welcome to my Website, Midwest Coupon Clippers. I have had my website since October of 2011.
I am Married to an AMAZING man, and a person I can say is TRULY my Best Friend! Carry and I met when I was 18 and he was 19, we were best friends for years, and from there, fell in love. We have had our ups and down like there are in any relationships in our earlier years, but now are inseparable, we have one of those relationships where we tell each other everything. We have one son who is 21, his name is Alex, and he is a chip off the old block, he is a carbon copy of his father, very kind, very soft-spoken, and smart as can me. He is currently a Junior in college, and will be starting Pre-Med. Pharmacy after getting his Biology degree. We also have our Brittney. Brittney is 25, and who we like to call our “Dropped Egg.” In our hearts, she is our Daughter, and how much her and I are alike, is sometimes scary. She recently blessed us with a beautiful grand baby, Natalie, who is the apple of her grandpa’s eye. Britt and Alex even fight like brother and sister at times. (Oh the stories I could tell) We are so truly proud of both of them!
I have a few passions in life. My family first and foremost of course. I also LOVE couponing and living a frugal lifestyle, and sharing with others how to do the same! I originally started a Facebook page called Wisconsin Coupon Clippers back in the summer of 2011. I started this after watching a current T.V. show called Extreme Couponing. Honestly, I WAS SO frustrated when I watched it the first time, seeing people stockpile products like they were doing. And it was so unrealistic! I decided it would be a good time to start a page and show people how YOU REALLY CAN extreme coupon, for the right products and food and save your family a GOOD AMOUNT each month in your budget. I also wanted to show people, that YES you can get a lot of FREE products, but do you really need 100 razors, bars of soap, or pet food? Why not coupon, AND donate and help others at the same time! Because of the phenomenal response I got on my Facebook page, I decided to take it one step further and start a website nationwide. My website Midwest Coupon Clippers, launched in October 2011.
Another passion of mine, is traveling to Florida (Gulf area) and Disney. 12 years ago now, we went on our first trip to Florida, and since then I have been hooked! We try to go at least twice a year if possible. I have a love for the Ocean, and could spend hours and hours just sitting on the beach, It is so peaceful and relaxing. After a week on the beach, we head over to the “Most Magical Place in the World.” Any of you that have visited the Magical Kingdom and walked up Main Street U.S.A towards Cinderella’s Castle knows exactly why it is called this. I not only love Disney because of the atmosphere, but also because of what Disney in general does for our enviroment and donating and helping worthy causes.
So that is me in a nutshell. I am a larger woman, or as my hubby likes to say, “I am Pooh sized!” (Winnie the Pooh that is) It is who I am and probably always will be. I love myself, and that is what matters! I have NEVER let my weight hold me back or interfere with my life, and never will! I am VERY outgoing, LOVE meeting new people, and I speak my mind. I love helping people and truly believe we are put on this earth to help others!
