Miss Coupon Diva

Joyce K. House, aka Miss Coupon Diva, learned the value of a coupon as a single teenage mom when a grocery store manager refused to compensate her for a package of tainted diapers. She contacted the manufacturer who sent her a coupon for a free pack, and she's been clipping coupons ever since. Because of her method, Joyce saves close to 95% of the cost every time she goes shopping. She's taught thousands of people how to find the best deals, and now she's sharing her secrets with you.  Find out more about clipping coupons at misscoupondiva.com.
