A Little About My Momma Taught Me

Hello! 🙂 My name is Kristy. I am 30 yrs old and have been happily married for 8 years. I have 2 daughters, a 8 year old named Jenna and a 5 year old named Emma. I grew up in Central New York, and currently live here with my family. I graduated high school in 2004 and went into college shortly after where I obtained a degree in criminal justice. I always knew I’d follow in my mothers footsteps and be a stay at home mom first then pursue a career later. I started using coupons regularly over 6 years ago when my first was born. I may not be a veteran of coupons, but I’m definitely not a newbie. My mother has been couponing my whole entire life, so I have always been around it. It almost is like a way of life for us. Couponing and smart money managing alone is the sole reason I am able to be a stay at home mommy.


 My Husband, Adam and I 🙂

Most of you have probably watched Extreme Couponing, and may have even started couponing because of that show. That’s great! I think everyone should use coupons! But you have to remember that show is there for entertainment, and is not entirely true or possible to achieve most of what they are doing here in NY, or on a regular basis. You can definitely expect to achieve a savings on average of 50% at the grocery stores around here.

I started My Momma Taught Me in order to help out my friends and peers in this community to learn the basics about couponing. There came a point when I was getting emails daily with coupon questions (you know who you are! 😉 ). So I decided to make a Facebook Page so I could write about coupons all in place for them all to see. Before you know it….we are here! My Husband surprised me for Christmas with this webpage (Thanks!). I hope that everyone finds it useful and more easy to navigate and finds things as compared to just a Facebook Page.  I definitely know what I am talking about, and follow by the Rules. I am all for being simple and getting to the point. I like to be informative as much as possible when it comes to coupons, but also like to keep it simple enough for everyone to read and understand quick! So Be sure to ask questions and join in the conversations! I love helping others out and will always get back to you as quick as possible! 🙂

I do this all out of my own personal time. I truly enjoy helping others, and giving what I can, when I can 🙂

**Please Remember….Like all of you, I am human and  I can make mistakes! Coupons and deals can change quickly! If you spot an error, please let me know! I greatly appreciate it!

  1. Hi, I live about forty-Five minutes from you. I noticed that you live close by. Do you ever Shop at Saunders or I think it is called Martins? Do they take coupons? And Do you recommend me making the trip to these stores. Thanks, Heather

    • Hi Heather,
      yes I do live near Sauders. I personally do not shop there myself. I know others find boneless chicken to be a good price there and other meat. I like my meat from Wegmans 🙂 I believe they take coupons, but I honestly am not 100% sure. When I used to go there with my mother it seemed to have expired or near expired brand name products. So I personally would say it would not be worth the trip, but that is just my opinion 🙂
      Sorry I couldn’t be more insightful about coupon usage there.

      • Thanks for the info. I love the Name of your site! It is similar to the Name of a book I hope to write someday. It’s wonderful to have great mothers that take the time to teach their daughters the art of Home economics and such:)
