Welcome Salt Lake City Tribune Readers

This morning, I was featured in an article by Lesley Mitchell in the Salt Lake City Tribune. (You can read the article here). I wanted to take a moment to welcome the readers of the Salt Lake City Tribune and provide you with some information.

My name is Kristin and I am a Disney addict. We are a middle class family living on a middle class budget and we can't afford a Disney vacation every year.Well, we couldn't until I started applying our savings from being a Smart Shopper to the Disney fund and it's amazing how quickly it has grown! In just 6 months, I have saved almost $2,000 for the trip! I created this blog to provide people with the tools and resources to save money and  help them realize how they too can afford a Disney vacation (or any big purchase).

Lesley found my blog a couple months ago and decided to try out my 5 A Day feature. Each day, Monday - Friday, I email 5 companies and I post a list of the companies I emailed so you can do it as well. I always give them honest feedback on what I think of their product. If I have a valid complaint, I complain. Just remember when you complain they usually ask for the production codes on the package so they can investigate it further and make sure it isn't a wide spread issue.

I keep a running list of what I have received so far. You can go here to see that list. And if you aren't sure how this works or what to write, you can read more about it here and here.

If you have any questions or concerns, you are welcome to either comment on this post or email me directly at CouponingtoDisney

I live in Salt Lake and found your blog through Freebies2deals and now I am on every day. Thanks! I have a question. When you email, do you include your full name and address so they can send you the coupons?

great article!
I have been more diligent lately about writing to companies. Last week I received in the mail a coupon for a free Sweet Baby Rays product and a $1 off 1 coupon (complimented their sauce). I sent out several other emails recently so I am anxious to see what else shows up!
