Learn the “Almost Free” Lifestyle directly from the woman who created it, Jen Freeman. Only Jen goes far beyond extreme couponing to show her audiences how to simply and easily make savings part of every family’s daily lifestyle – and, just as important, how to make it fun and educational, too. In the last year alone, thousands have attended Jen’s Almost Free™ Lifestyle presentations.
From Jen: When my husband and I moved overseas to Japan during the 90′s with the military, I was stunned at the prices we paid for food on base. I learned to coupon & refund while living there. From contacts with the Refunding Makes Cents magazine I became acquainted with people that sent me expired coupons. The military can use expired coupons overseas 6 months past the expiration date. I would distribute the coupons to different facilities on base when a package came in. When we moved back to the states prices seemed so cheap to me that I fell out of couponing.
Now fast forward a few years and I was blessed with the best coupon EVER~one pregnancy 2 babies! Best BOGO I ever received was when I found out I was pregnant with twins! And it’s been a ride ever since. I became a work at home mom until they were two and realized I couldn’t keep that up. So, when I officially quit working and our economy began to falter it sparked a renewed interest for me to become frugal, again. I love the challenge of saving money and finding great deals that benefit my family’s bottom line and fill our stomachs with yummy healthy food. I started stockpiling health, beauty aids & paper goods 2 years ago, then realized I needed to do the same for groceries since prices have begun to skyrocket.
I recently took on the challenge of home schooling my bundles of energy. I will share information that I find compelling and free resources when I come across them. These resources can be used along with any schooling program: public, private or homeschool. Some of these resources will be a great thing to pull out when you hear the words “I’m bored” I have a great respect for parents and value the different choices we make for our families and our children’s schooling.
So between couponing, blogging, cooking from scratch, homeschooling the twins AND still enjoying being my handsome husband’s girlfriend after 21 years~life is busy and fulfilling! It is from years of teaching myself couponing that Tip Resource came about. I want to share all that I learned with others and help them achieve extreme savings!
