What readers are saying:

“I downloaded your book and really enjoyed it. There were some great ideas I hadn’t considered before.” —B.


“I ordered your ebook yesterday and read it. I pulled out my local ads and got to work. I went shopping lat night and price matched everything I could that I normally use. I also added in some of your recipes for a menu this week. I only spent $135. That is so awesome for me. I usually spend over $200!” —Jill B.


“Wonderful e-book. It’s just what I really needed to read. I have been so stressed out that I spent so much time discovering ways to save, but then feel so guilty when I don’t implement them. It’s nice to be able to let that go, not pressuring myself into becoming one of those extreme couponers. Thank you!”


“Just want to thank you for all your insight and knowledge. I have planned 2 weeks of menus and most of the ingredients I already have on hand. Have a grocery list for the rest and am feeling ready to take on this next week! Thanks for the inspiration!”


And Blogger Cammy writes,

“In Save More–Clip Less, author/blogger Kimberlee Stokes (The Peaceful Mom) shares her strategies for maximizing grocery shopping dollars. Her perspective is unique in that Kimberlee is a “reformed” extreme couponer. She describes the problems she had with the extreme side and how she moved to a healthier approach both to shopping and feeding her family.

Even without a family to feed, I found the information in the book to be well-organized and informative. Included are shopping tips, as well as menu planning tips, printables, and online resources.”


(If you arrived here from a previously posted link, please note that the ebook was offered for free as a promotion during 2012, but is now for sale. I promise that you will save much more than the cost of the book by following the ideas included in it!)

      • Lyn

        So nice of you to offer this. Looking forward to reading this! I’m a bit fatigued with couponing in general and the time it really does take. Just my opinion, but I think eventually the gravy train will stop with that anyway. I don’t like to have to rely on a company’s decision on whether I can get a coupon or not to afford their product. It helps to be flexible and open to all ideas for saving. Thanks again.

        • Kimberlee

          Thanks Lyn-I wanted to help as many people as possible because Extreme Couponing seems to be taking over every where I look. It wasn’t a blessing to our family and maybe it won’t be to others either. They need to know there are alternatives.

          Thanks for taking the time to comment. :)

  • Darla

    I also have a child who has aspergers and it has drastically changed how we handle our household. I read part of your book and I really like it. Bravo for reforming, I found when I tried to duplicate some of the things the extremers were doing, I didn’t save anything because it became too much of a chore and with everything else I had to deal with it was too much. Thanks for a great HONEST ebook!

    • Kristen

      I just started reading this and can’t stop. Thank you so much for sharing all of this great information!!!

      • Kimberlee

        You are very welcome Kristen! So glad you’re enjoying it. :)

    • Kimberlee

      I am so glad that you like it. Dealing with a child with any kind of special needs requires a lot of energy and you can only do so much, right? I don’t know if you noticed, but I have some posts about dealing with Aspergers here:

  • Christy

    I devoured this. I recently started couponing and I love it, but fear I am going down the same path you did. I am trying very hard not to get carried away, and your ebook has inspired me to really evaluate my process and become a little more balanced in my approach. Thank you so much! I will write a great review for you.

    • Kimberlee

      Thank you so much Christy! My heart in writing it was to help as many people as possible, so I am really glad that you let me know. Have a Peaceful Day!

    • Debbie Grace

      Kimberlee, your blog is new to me and I so love the name. Just reading “The Peaceful Mom” brings an invitation to take a welcomed deep breath every time! :)

      Thank you for your ebook. I’ve been trying to actively coupon for about four months now and, truthfully? I find it wearisome. *So* much of what you say in your book made good sense to me and (((resonated))). Thank you for affirming what was dawning in me and for offering so many new ideas.

      Blessings to you,

      • Kimberlee

        Thank you Debbie-I truly wanted to give a different perspective to the Extreme Couponing craze that’s hitting the nation right now. I’m really happy that it was a blessing to you.

        Thanks for taking the time to let me know. :)

  • Jennie

    I found your eBook soooo refreshing! I also have a special needs child and only work part time. We had to look for ways to trim the budget and I started couponing a couple of years ago. I’ve got a plan that works for me now. Am I saving as much as before? Honestly, yes. But the extra time I have…I can’t assign a dollar value to that. Thank you THANK YOU for sharing what was on your heart! I love what you are doing here!

    • Kimberlee

      Welcome Jennie! I am so glad that the book encouraged you-that was my hope. Have a Peaceful Day!

  • Deb

    What a blessing…thanks for you work and for sharing!

    • Kimberlee

      My pleasure Deb! Glad you enjoyed it.

  • J9

    Thank you so much for this book. I Love how you broke it down and give so many charts that I have been trying to do and get organized into. Your book is so simple and so helpful :). I actually told a friend about it and she fell in love with it also. Thanks again!

    • Kimberlee

      I’m so glad that you enjoyed it! Your friend can download her own copy if she would like. :)

    • Kathy

      Thank you so much! I have read your book and ready to try this. Now I have to print off your worksheets you have provided and get started. I hope this is easier than trying to do all the couponing-I just don’t have enough time right now. This looks like it could work for me-I will still do some coupons.

      • Kimberlee

        Hi Kathy! I am so glad you found the book helpful.

        Just remember that it probably will not work perfectly the first few times. Don’t get discouraged. :)

  • Christina

    Thank you so very much for sharing your e-book!!! My family can certainly use it!!!!

    • Kimberlee

      You are very welcome Christina! I hope you find it helpful. :)

  • Karen J. Fraleigh

    Where can I find gluten free breads near Conway, Sc.?

    • Kimberlee

      If you have an Ingles or a Publix they will either carry Udi’s Gluten Free bread or be able to order it for you. You can also try health food stores in your area. Hope this helps!

  • RG

    Thank you so much. I know coupons have their place, but I have sort of distanced myself from the extreme couponing because I have a friend who became a lot less than honest just to save a couple of bucks. I learned that many get caught in that trap – exchanging integrity for some immediate savings. Thank you for your ideas.

    • Kimberlee

      My pleasure! I’m so glad you enjoyed it.

  • Barbara

    Hi, I have so enjoyed everything on your website! You are kind to share so many forms with your readers. :) I have printed out bunches of them today and am going to do my planner today. I am so excited! You make it look so easy on the video too.

    Again, thank you so much for your website!

    • Kimberlee

      Welcome Barbara! I’m so glad you’re here. :) Have a great day!

  • Tamara

    I used the other link you gave someone. Thanks. That comment wasn’t there before I posted mine. lol. We must have been commenting at the same time. Thanks so much for the book. I am going to read it right away!

    • Shannon

      Thank you for this! I used to be a crazy coupon lady but after awhile I became discouraged and started looking for better ways to save money. I also left my job to stay home because my oldest has Aspergers and at the time dealing with the school required much of my focus. Recently we found out he has a auto immune disorder and we are trying a gluten free diet, so this e-book is amazing for us! I can not say thank you enough.

  • kate

    Wanted to let you know, I just pinned this e-book on Pinterest. I do love couponing, but sometimes it is so difficult to keep up with! Thank you for sharing tips to keep me working within my budget without spending so many hours sorting, cutting, and filing coupons!!

    • Kimberlee

      Thanks Kate! I’m so glad that you found the book helpful. I just wanted to share an alternative since couponing wasn’t really working for us either. Have a great day!

  • Shannon

    I will check it out! My son is 14 now so Aspergers has become second nature to me, but I am always looking for good information sources for the parents who are just starting out and learning 😀

  • Melinda T

    Hi-new follower here! I found you from Rachel Wojo’s blog! Finding you couldn’t have come at a better time! Thanks and I can’t wait to read your ebook!

  • lisa simmmons

    THank you so much for the ebook, I look forward to reading it. I’ve been couponing for years and everyday, I’m still learning and by saving and picking up items at a substantial discount or free I’m able to pay it forward to others. (great feeling of love)…. thank you again and god bless you for helping others.

    • Kimberlee

      Thank you Lisa. I hope you enjoy it! :)

  • Lollie

    Hi, new follower. I really enjoyed all your videos and the information on your blog. I’m disabled and couponing is hard for me. You are kind to share so many forms with your readers. I am so excited! Thank you.

  • amber

    Hi Kimberlee!

    I was doing some research on budgeting because I am trying to decide if I can stay home from work with my son, and I found your amazing site!

    Thank you for the inspiration you’ve already provided!


  • Nicki

    This is really great stuff. My husband and I make an average salary, we have relatively low debt and live a pretty modest lifestyle. My husband is much better at saving money than I am, so we set our bills up to where he usually has a little extra for savings. There are certain bills that I pay and then I take care of our groceries, but our grocery bill is outrageous. We are a family of 5, including 3 boys (one teen, one pre-teen and an 8 year old) and I feel like I can’t keep enough in stock to keep them full. I am excited about your ebook and can’t wait to get started reading it.

    My middle child also has Asperger’s Syndome and many times, we have talked about my leaving the work sector to stay home and homeschool our younger boys. Your blog has been an inspiration and I look forward to following along.

    God Bless you, girl!

    • Kimberlee

      Hi Nicki! Hopefully you can find some good ideas in the book. I’m glad you’re here!

  • Bre Dale

    Yah!! Thank you!

    • Kimberlee

      You are very welcome Bre!

  • Bec

    Thanks for your e book. I appreciate your honesty and expertise. Thank you for taking the time to write it..

    I read it in one sitting.

    I shop at three stores for food and a seperate store for paper. It is intersting how each store really does have a lower price on one catagory.

    I will start a price book. I know when something is a good price, but I’m unsure of the lowest cost. I’ll also save up for a freezer because stocking up seems to be a key.

    Thanks again.

    • Kimberlee

      You are very welcome Bec!

  • Gina H.

    Thank you sooooooo much for sharing all this information. I look forward to the next part.
    I am single with my own home but everything I have is paid for except my boat. I have a ton of credit card bills though and I am trying to get out of debt so I can start fresh. I am going to use your plan cause I think it might work. I would have been out of debt 2 years ago but a widowed lady at my church is struggling so I went into more debt helping her out. I am still paying for her necessities and it is breaking me( she does not know that though) but God is on my side and He helps me make all my payments.
    God Bless You,

    I really want to read your book. We are about to have our first baby and I am trying to payoff bills and save money ( I would love to be a stay at home mom but if things don’t change I can’t) I know our biggest problem is eating out. I’m working on that and I’m going to use your menu idea. Thanks for all your help :)

    • Stacey

      Hi, I love your web site. My family is about to make a cross-country move, and we’re going to have to be very frugal for the next few years in order to get back on track with our goals. Baby #2 coming along last year really wrecked the flow of my life, and I’ve had a really hard time getting back on board with, well, everything. Your web site is helping me SO MUCH to get back to my simple, frugal ways….and this time with a family!! THANK YOU!

      • Kimberlee

        I’m so glad. Thanks for letting me know Stacey!

  • Julie

    Thanks for your willingness to share what you’ve learned and to help us wives and mothers who want to (or need to) live frugally. I love your blog and can’t wait to read the book.

    Just want to thank you for this e-book! It has helped me change the way i think about meal time and saving money. It’s made me realize how I use my time and how I can make better choices! Looking forward to following your blog!

        Is the promo code SaveMore still working? When I tried to order this it said the code had expired.


        • Kimberlee

          I’m not sure what happened, but I just corrected it. It should work for you now, but let me know if it doesn’t.

  • Sarah

    Thankyou so much, you are truly a blessing.

  • Sue

    Hi, Kimberlee. Thank you so much for sharing so much helpful insight with others. I am excited about being able to appropriate some of it into my own planning for 2013. I am a little confused though about the cost of the free ebook, Save More, Clip Less. It is offered as a free ebook to download, but then there is a cost of $5.00? What is the actual situation with this book? Please let me know as I am very interested in your ideas. Thanks.

    • Kimberlee

      Hi Sue! Sorry for the confusion. The ebook was free for 2012 but is now for sale for $5.00. For a limited time, you can use promo code SaveMore to get $2.00 off. I think you will find it very helpful. :)

      • Sue

        Thank you for clarifying, Kimberlee. Well, judging by all of the helpful info you provide, I am sure it will be a worthwhile investment. It couldn’t come at a better time as we are really going to have to tighten our belts this year. Thanks, again.

  • Sue

    Hi, Kim. I am sorry to bother you again, but the promo code is not working for me. It says that it has expired. Is there another way for me to go about it. Thanks.

    • Kimberlee

      Hi Sue! I just updated the code, sorry about that. Let me know if it works for you.

  • Julie

    I just finished this book and really enjoyed it. I was happy to see that I am already doing some of the things you suggested but also learned new things which I hope to implement. I have been trying to spend $100/week for a family of four. Do you include household items in your total such as shampoo, paper products, etc… or is your $125 just food. I have been grouping everything together. I seem to spend about $100 a week for about 4 weeks, and then I slip up, and spend $250 in one week. I did that twice since I’ve been trying to be on a budget.

    • Kimberlee Stokes

      Hi Julie! I include only food items in the $125 but some of those items are gluten free products. I spend between $40 and $50 a month on average for non-food items but occasionally we seem to be out of everything and I spend between $75 and $100 that month. Hope that helps.
