Hi, and welcome to Brooklyn Bargainista! My name is Hannah (I'm in the middle) and I'm addicted to couponing. I started about 2 years ago. My husband and I had just moved from a home we owned in Orlando, FL to a rental house in Tampa, FL. We had a 13-month old and I was 8 months pregnant with our 2nd child. Within 2 weeks of moving, the closing fell through on our house in Orlando, we were stuck with a mortgage payment and a rent payment, and I needed to look for a way to save money.
I found a website that had coupon matchups for my local grocery stores as well as drug stores in FL. Once I got the hang of it, I made it my goal to save more than I spent at the grocery store each week. When we moved to Brooklyn in August, I was worried about how much money I'd have to spend on groceries. After all, I had been spending less than $100/week to feed a family of 4, and my trusty go-to website for deals didn't go any farther north than Charlotte.
Since I was unable to find a local website that did the coupon matchups, I started doing them on my own. I quickly realized that it wouldn't be that much more work to post them online so that others could benefit as well. If you like the site, please tell your friends. The more interest/traffic the site has, the more time I can spend finding good deals for you.
If you have any questions, feel free to email me:
