From Jen Freeman: I want to introduce you to Jen Morris, AKA comic relief. It’s been SO much fun getting to know Jen on our out of town trips teaching Extreme Couponing workshops ~fun is always at hand. She has a wealth of knowledge in couponing and so many other areas, not to mention she is my kindred spirit in the kitchen! I think you will enjoy her fun posts and the fabulous ideas she has. We are blessed to have her here and sharing. I really appreciate you Jen!
From Jen Morris: Hi there!! My name is Jen Morris. I am a wife to Joe, mother to 5 children, Jillian (10), Jakob (8), Jarrett (5), Jocelynn (3), and Jaxson (1.5), and I’m the Grocery Geek! My coupon journey began almost 3 years ago now when I was invited to go to a coupon class at my friend’s home. I was intrigued because we were desperate to figure out how to save money in that area of our budget. At the time, we spent right around $1100 a month for a family of 6 on all our household and grocery items. I thought that was good!! At the class I learned a few key things that changed my life and cut our budget down to around $450 a month for a now family of 7! THAT is good!! With only 2 months of couponing under my belt, I decided I needed to teach others what I had learned as well. Coupons changed my life and I just HAD to tell people about it! Aside from motherhood, this has been the most rewarding job I have ever had!
Now, my life is better because of coupons, but my life doesn’t revolve around coupons either. I am very active in my church, I love to be involved in my kids’ school, I like digital scrapbooking, and oh boy, do I love a good trip to Home Depot! Once upon a time, I was an accountant, customer service agent, and did some American Sign Language on the side. If you do a little Google digging, you may see my name in conjunction with the Saints Unified Voices choir directed by the legendary Gladys Knight. I sang and toured with this group for about 9 years and may have scooped up a Grammy along the way. But, life happens, and with the arrival of baby #5 decided to retire my choir robes. If you drive close enough to my car though, you may catch me singing along to the radio (rather loudly), but that’s about all the performing I do these days.
