In 2009, I lost my job as a school assistant principal at Weaver High School in Hartford, CT. At the time, I was making in excess of $100,000 annually. Forced to applied for unemployment benefits because I was unable to find a job, my income was reduced to less than $26,000 annually.
With the huge reduction in income, I decided I needed to get serious about saving money, so I turned to couponing and started Gina’s Kokopelli to fill up my time and help others who needed to save money. Not only will you find lots of great deals, coupon match ups and freebies here, you will also see recipes, gardening tips and many other things that peak my interest.
Currently, I am a part time (30 hrs/wk) principal at a private special education school in Connecticut. I work with boys ages 13-18 who have substance abuse issues. When I’m not at work, I’m blogging, which takes up about 40 – 60 hours a week of my time. You may also find me teaching couponing classes all over the state of Connecticut as well as Massachusetts and New York.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments. I can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by Gina’s Kokopelli. I hope you enjoy it!*This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy for more information.*
