    "Can coupons really save you money?"

    I'm a coupon clipper. I've read blogs and have even gone to many of the coupon websites mentioned in this book. I also work for one of the major drugstore chains mentioned here.

    All that being said, I did learn a lot about the history of coupons, refunding and statistically who are most likely to use coupons. Ms. Kenyon gives you a lot of information in the book but it is in a way that doesn't overwhelm you. Ms. Kenyon also 'debunks' many of the couponing myths out there. If you have ever seen one of the coupon reality shows on TV, Ms. Kenyon points out the 'true reality' of them. They aren't very real at all.

    Ms. Commins has a very pleasant voice and made the information even more interesting. She narrates the book at a good speed and you don't feel like it is being rushed.

    I enjoyed both the writing and reading of this book. I would recommend it to my friends who are thinking of getting into couponing. This is a very realistic guide to couponing.
