How Did it Start?
You Saved How Much started quite by accident. I was into extreme couponing and my friends and coworkers wanted to know how I did it. After my coworkers and I got in trouble at work for, “talking too much about couponing, because couponing is stupid,” I decided for my New Years Resolution to start a Facebook group to show them how I did it. I decided to challenge myself by doing a coupon journey. I was allowing myself only $20.00 to get my household needs each week at the local stores, but mainly at drugstores. I honestly didn’t think I could do it, but I did. I was actually EXCELLENT at it and it grew from there! What once my former boss called “stupid” and a “waste of my time,” ended up becoming a career path. You Saved How Much was born!
How Did The Name Happen?
When talking about my coupon journey and savings, I was always presented with the expression, “You saved HOW much?” Thus, You Saved How Much came to be.
Where are you located?
I am a stay at home working mom living in South Central Pennsylvania. I do teach local couponing classes through various times of the year. With YSHM expanding, I have been adding stores outside of the Central PA area to include everyone in the excitement of saving money. I firmly believe whether it’s a dollar or a hundred, everyone loves to save money in some way. There is no greater feeling than the disbelief of someone saying, “You Saved HOW Much?”
