Today’s member spotlights introduces you to Shannon in Italy and Rebekah in the United Kingdom.
Where are you stationed? Aviano, Italy
Size of your family: 3
How long have you been overseas? Since January 2008 (4 years)
Have you always been a couponer or did you start once you were stationed overseas? I started couponing about six months after we got here since my grocery bill tripled from what it was in the states. I have finally started to get my grocery bill back in check with the help of coupons!
What is your best piece of advice for anyone newly stationed overseas? Definitely try to save as much as you can. Living overseas provides you with a great opportunity to travel, but also to save money. It is a lot more expensive to live overseas, so save where you can and when you can! Coupons are a great way to start. And of course, get involved with Coupons To Troops!
What is your favorite part about CouponsToTroops? This is the only program that I have ever belonged to and absolutely love it! The program is run by a great person, Lesley, and she is always so helpful. I love that we are matched individually and get coupons mailed to us directly. I love that I have individuals sending me coupons so that I know where they came from and who to thank. It’s nice to have that personal interaction with the senders.
How long have you been overseas? 20 months
Have you always been a couponer or did you start once you were stationed overseas? I started when we moved here and learned how much you can save and you can also use older coupons. It really helps with shopping.
What is your favorite part about CouponsToTroops? Having someone in the States send us coupons that they no longer need, we are looking forward to receiving our first package in the near future and we are excited to the part of CouponstoTroops. I think that it is an amazing idea!!
