I absolutely love it when a reader sends me an email, or leaves me a comment, to let me know that they have had a good shopping trip. I still get a rush every time I go into a store and come out spending a fraction of the cost on the original prices. Even better? Knowing that other women and their family’s are benefiting from the information that I have to share. A reader recently sent me this picture and email:

Reader Shopping Trip Tsehay


This is half-way through my first week using coupons (first 3 days), and I learned how to use coupons from reading through your entire website, taking notes from your site as well as from your blog readers who share wonderful advice.  I know you share this information with everyone out of the goodness of your heart, and I wanted to say, “thank you” so much!  I have attached a photo off all the items we got for free, plus $4.25 back!!!

Have a nice day, and thanks!


It is emails like this that make me feel good about what I am doing and all of the effort that goes on behind the scenes on Penny Pinching Diva.

If you would ever like to send in your savings stories and/or pictures please feel free to email me at msshadiggy {at}

Also, join the conversation with other Frugalistas by becoming a member of the Penny Pinching Diva Social Network. Not only do we talk about saving, being frugal and coupons, but we also talk about our family’s, share stories and participate in lively discussions. I am on there ALL THE TIME so join me and keep me company.
