About Coupon Shopping with Treasure

About Coupon Shopping with TreasureMy name is Treasure Phillips. In December of 2008 I didn't even know what coupon shopping was and now, with the help of The Grocery Game and A Full Cup, I am getting my groceries for 80% to almost 90% off and at the current time I won't have to shop for the next 7 months. I started learning from those websites and now have started my own blog to branch out and teach you my system for getting groceries at next to nothing.

My family consists of myself, my husband James and son Levi, who will be 3 in December, and dog Jack. My husband and I own an online business but over the last year, as like many other business, it hasn't gone so well. That is why I started coupon shopping.

Coupon Shopping with Treasure PhillipsWhen I was pregnant with my son Levi I learned about The Grocery Game from the Oprah show (about 4 yrs ago). At the time I figured I had no time to get involved with clipping and using coupons and we really didn't need to use them so I forgot about it. In January of this year (2009) my husband said that he might be laid off at work and since the business wasn't doing as well as we had hoped that I might have to get a job. I remembered about The Grocery Game and signed up for a FREE trial membership. By March I was totally addicted to shopping with coupons and was now building up a small stockpile. Once I got my first stockpile going, and I saw how easy it was and how exciting it was to figure out just how to get my groceries for 80% to 90% off, I was hooked.

Today I have 2 freezers full of food, a small grocery store in the basement of my house, and I don't have to go grocery shopping for 7 months if I don't want to. And even with all of what I have in my own household I am able to give away at least 50% of what I get to neighbors, friends, and food pantries.

If we all shopped like I do we could easily feed all of the hungry people!

My Shopping Philosophy
I tend to shop late at night when no one else is in the store. I usually shop around 10 pm or later when both hubby and son are sleeping. I love being able to hunt for a deal that no one else knows about so I can come home, take pictures of my "bounty" and then post what I found on my blog or another forum to brag about it.

I also love being the first to find a deal or the first to get a better deal than the last guy. It's almost like a competition to me and I love the thrill of the hunt.

My friends sometimes think I am a nut, but when they see what I save, they think I am quite crafty! I would say I am quite competitive when it comes to something I am passionate about - and I am passionate about using coupons and basically getting free groceries.

As far as other friends that share my passion - I have them all hooked!!! They all shop with coupons now (I even mail them coupons to use so they have no reason not to use them) and one friend is also stockpile shopping for her family.

Let me teach you some of my tricks and tips so you can be a super coupon shopper too!

Watch this video. It will show you some of my stockpile and the "mini grocery store" in my house. I also give you tips about what to do when you have too much food, if that is really possible -- of course it is and I will prove it to you!
