We had three panel members talk to us about cutting corners in our quest for financial harmony!!
Keri Elam talked on how she and her husband paid off thousands of dollars in debt, and are now teaching and helping others do the same!!

Kelly Gooch talked about the importance in her life that coupons have played in her quest for cutting corners!  She has walked out with $147.00 in groceries and only paid $42.00 OOP!

Bottom line:  We have been  blessed us with many resources to aid us in being  financially responsible and cut corners!
