Guest Post: Stephanie’s Story

Hi, my name is Stephanie. I am married with 3 boys, I work part-time and drive the carpool the rest of the time. I have always been one to use coupons and find a great deal but since Jolyn started Macomb Money Savers I’m also able to save money and live comfortably.

In the last year I have been able to put extra money into our savings. At first it was tight because we were used to living off of every cent we made. We would be out of spending/grocery money before our next paycheck. Putting ourselves on a savings plan taught me how to pass up on a deal I didn't really need and how to stretch my dollars from store to store while building up a  stockpile.

In September, we endured a family tragedy but thanks to my new savvy shopping we had money in our savings when we needed it most. Our rainy day arrived and we were prepared. The savings was such a blessing - but at the same time so was our stockpile. When I was unable to find the energy to hit the stores, I found that I didn't need to...I had everything I needed for several weeks stocked right on my basement shelves. 

Now a year into following MMS we are able to save money, maintain a stockpile and have extra money left at the end of the week. It’s great to have a place to go to share and find ideas and deals. Thanks so much to MMS for all the time and money that has been saved, for all the time and energy you pour into this site every are a blessing to us. Thank You!


  1. stephanie,
    I just want to tell you how much I can relate to your story and to let you know that when people stick together and help each other (as MMS does) the world becomes a much more comforting place. Pass it on!!!
