Couponing For Christ

If you haven't heard by now Jeff and I have started a new ministry together. The entire crew actually, the girls and all are neck deep into an amazing new opportunity that God has blessed us with.

I shared with you a month or more ago the link from 40/29 News where they profiled us coming back from a big shopping trip where we gathered near $3,000 worth of toiletries, formula, and food for the victims of the Joplin tornado and it was all FREE! (we paid $30 for tax)

If this is your 1st time to hear about it I will recap. We were trying to find new ways to save and stretch our single income budget. Jeff has to provide for 7 people on a daily basis and it is very stressful. So he started researching and taught himself how to coupon to the point that it definitely become EXTREME COUPONING! From the very beginning we knew that we couldn't keep it all for ourselves and we took things to people here and there and share with Ammorae's friends and our family members.
Then our Pastor, Ronnie Floyd, inspired us one Sunday this year with a vision of a new Compassion Center. I knew as soon as the words came out of his mouth what God's plan was for us! I did the foot work and the organizing and Jeff's smart numbers focusing brain went into action.
Our church donates about 80% of the coupons and the rest we scour the community for.(secrets to be revealed) We have an amazingly dedicated crew, Ammorae, Aydan, Addy, and Ava that help cut Qpins, in layman's terms, coupons. We keep tweaking our process and continually improve on making this a well oiled machine.

The difference in our story and those that are shown on tv is that we don't keep or hoard our "stock pile" We keep what we will use in a short amount of time, maybe 3 months worth, and the rest goes to people who can't help themselves and desperately need it. Our stock piles are all over the NWA area.

Now with the news that the Compassion Center formally has a new home, we have been taping with 40/29 News and Lauren Limerick for several sessions for a tell all story that will air on Friday evening 5 & 10pm. Along with this we will launch our new website that will feed all pertinent information so that you too can do this. We will profile testimonials and videos of exact step by step directions. (revised site not running yet)

ALL we ASK and PRAY is that you take these savings tips and GIVE unto others. Be a cheerful giver. AND don't forget to watch or record the news on Friday!
