Then you have the people who coupon like it's their full-time job and woe unto anyone who's unfortunate enough to be standing behind them in line at the supermarket. Sure, they pay $4 for a good 200 lbs of food, but gosh darnit, I was planning on getting home in time to play with my kid before he goes to bed, not wait behind your sweatpants-wearing butt.
But after seeing what this woman did for 30,000 hungry people in need with her couponing skills, I might need to check myself.
In 2012, Lauren started an organization called For the Love Of Others. She utilized bulk stores to help feed hungry people, but still wanted to reach more with her resources.
She's so good at it, she can sometimes feed 150 people for as little as $20. WHAT.
Puryear says that couponing may seem annoying, but that it's actually quite easy once you get the hang of it.
"It's probably the most exhilarating thing I could ever do in life. The joy of helping other people does not compare to any other accomplishment in my life." Puryear said.
She hopes to pass on the love of helping others onto her son.
"It is very important to teach him to help other people," she said. "The little things we take for granted, the food we throw away every day ... and if we just spread a little more love around, the world would be such a better place."
