This Giveaway has ended: Winner was Entry #23, Ashley.
I received a copy of Pick Another Checkout Lane, Honey, courtesy of the authors Joanie Demer and Heather Wheeler. Other then the free copy of the book for me to review and the free copy they gave me to give away to one of my readers, I was in no other way paid for this review and this is my honest opinion of the book:
You should read the FREE 26 pages of ABC’s of Couponing eBook!
I wish I would have bought it to give to my sisters-in-law for Christmas instead of giving them the gifts I got them. I used coupons to score amazing deals on their presents; but those are only going to last so long. This book would do much more to seriously change their lives. You see, even though I coupon and have tried to explain to them the dramatic savings I score, there is really so much to couponing you need to be taught it in a class (as I was), watch training videos, or by buying and reading this book.
Pick Another Checkout Lane, Honey is loaded with funny comics showing how Krazy coupon shoppers live. I related to all of them and my husband agreed I could be the lady in the comics. The book starts out explaining the why of couponing. This is why this would be a great gift for people who are not couponers yet. There are some people who don’t understand that you can get name-brand cereal for drastically less then generic. Or they don’t believe it, until the read the in-depth how.
Every trick it took me months to learn the hard-knock way at the checkout lane was laid out in this 250 page book. I wish I had read it before I started couponing to save me massive amounts of trial-and-error and the many times I had coupons denied or spent more then I was planning. One example is their list of categories for coupon binder organization. I had 10 broad category tabs in my coupon binder. I have skipped out on deals because I couldn’t find a coupon; for example, a coupon for Ranch dressing could have gone in my old system under my canned/boxed foods tab or my produce tab, but it really didn’t fit in either. I recently bought more tabs and used the categories they suggested. I no longer have problems finding coupons because they only fit under one category now, and the categories are organized similar to most grocery stores aisles so similar coupons are by each other. For those of you who don’t know what a category tab is, the entire way to clip, store, and organize coupon binders is also laid out in the book.
Overall, I loved the book and was pleased with all their real-life experiences that I could relate to. This is the best present you could ever give someone who needs to save big money in their life with money-saving tips on groceries, children’s clothes, and even gifts. You can buy this book at PickAnotherCheckoutLaneHoney.com. Right now it looks like it is about $15 including shipping. Worth every penny.
I have also just learned that The Krazy Coupon Lady has decided to give me one more copy of this book to giveaway to my readers!
