Good for him. I am sick of seeing the basements/garages/added on rooms with hoards of items that will never be used in 1000 years. Why can't they be like him and give it away. Who needs 100 candy bars, 100 boxes of cereal? The world would be a better place if they were like Jordan.

What a great story. Instead of some spoiled teen waaaaying his way through life, he's not only helping to support himself and his family, but making a major difference in other people's lives. That's the sort of thing that gives me hope for the season!

Couponing is one of those skills that unfortunately takes a lot of time, energy, & diligence. I used to do it, but it just wore me out after awhile. I figured I would just shop at a store that had low prices overall than trying to find coupons for things that I wanted. Now I shop at Trader Joe's, they don't have any coupons, but they do have reasonable prices for most things, & they lower prices on clearance items, that's when I clean up.

Saw this somewhere else a while ago, but nice to see again. Agree with Regan couponing takes time, energy, and diligence. Amazing his grades didn't suffer. Maybe because he didn't work it out to the last detail - and was shocked the tab was as low as it was!

Good on you, Jordan. In your honor, I just made another donation to Northwest Harvest (WA state hunger relief agency).

That's great. It's so obvious in a way, but most people just don't think as logically as you do. Thank you for posting.

I dont understand how he got so much for so little even with coupons (I guess Im missing something.,.but most coupons I see are buy one get one free, or a certain percent off.. not huge amounts off).
