Catherine Boyle is a devoted couponer when she shops for her husband, Barney, 50, a bank vice president, and their two children.
When she started using coupon websites like couponmom.com
, she put in four to five hours per week. Now she's got it down to about two to three hours a week and saves $400 to $500 a month.
The kids have accepted having to give up Jif or Peter Pan peanut butter in favor of Skippy, which is often on sale. "But I'd be drawn and quartered if I brought home generic peanut butter," Boyle says.
While the Boyles live a comfortable life, they need the extra money for college. Their 14-year-old just started high school.
