It’s been a little while since Diana sent me this email but I wanted to wait until I had time to sit down and write something to go along with it. It truly blessed my heart to read that we at CQ had a small part in helping her son who has autism learn some skills through couponing.
I had never really thought of using coupons in any other light than for saving money or teaching kids the value of money. Thanks to Diana, we can add another positive aspect in this thing we call couponing 🙂

Here’s her email:
I am new to couponing but am very thankful to have found you and your teachings! My 14 year old son is autistic and homeschooled. I was trying to find something that I could teach him life skills along with some very much needed occupational therapy and academic skills. Couponing is perfect, there are so many skills he is learning! We add, cut, organize, interact, and are saving ones we won’t use for Military families! I have such an incredibly hard time with keeping his attention enough to teach him. This has been an awesome “out of the box” way, and he is enjoying it too. As well as saving some much needed money =)
I wish I would have come across your site much sooner, what an AHA moment this has been! Thank you so much!
Anyway, this was my first coupon trip, last weekend to Homeland on NW. Expressway. I researched all of your posts, we clipped coupons, then went to the site and added our card coupons. The total was $62.76 before savings, and $22.84 after savings! If it weren’t for those taxes, I would have been able to pay with a $20 bill! Such an exciting experience we had!
