      My family saves money by only eating out twice a month. You would be surprised at how those trips through mcdonalds can add up! We also use mint.com to track our spending. That way, we know where we overspend each month.

      Donkey is our family’s favorite! To save money we recently cancelled our cable. It saves us $40+ a month and we can catch all of our favorite shows (plus some that weren’t on TV) on Hulu.com. We haven’t missed it a bit!

    • Erin

      Donkey, of course!

    • Paige_N

      Who else but Donkey, he is awesome. Southern savers is great for helping save money. Went to Publix yesterday and saved $115!!!!! I was SO excited. That is probably my best trip yet. I am also looking forward to finally getting into one of Jenny's workshops. I am doing pretty well on my own but I hope she can share a few tips in the workshop to make my savings even better.

    • emilykayehall

      I've been saving money with coupons, eating at home and packing my lunch for work and downgrading my internet speed. Also planted a small container garden on my back porch to get my favorite fresh produce. It was a little bit of an investment to get it started, but hoping it will be worth it.

    • Miriam Scogin

      Defintely Donkey!

    • My son loves donkey. He makes us all laugh. I have saved a ton by using Sothern Saver I tell all my friends to check out the website.

    • We save money by having me stay at home with our little girl. I know it doesn't work for everyone, but I'm able to make all of our meals, grow a garden, coupon, and take care of our baby. With the money we save on gas, eating out, and what we would've spent on daycare we actually save more money!

    • stefanie m

      my son loves donkey, thanks for everything! i sure love this site!

    • Ally

      We all love donkey!!

    • Amanda

      My childrens favorite character would be donkey. Mostly because they think he is a talking dog. It is quite funny if I say so myself, they go around saying dog and pointing to donkey while they are doing it. Too funny!

    • Mika

      Shrek and Puss in Boots!

    • Shannon H.

      Favorite character is DONKEY!!

    • Helene Tremblay

      My daughter favorite character is Shrek. A great way my family and I save money: We totally change our way of life. I cancelled cable a year and a half ago. We all tought we would not make it without cable. Guess what! Our quality of life has greatly improved. We have dinner all sitting down together, NO TV. We talked about what each one has done during the day. Then, we play with puzzles, domino, games. We read books to our daughter and/or go for a walk or bike with our three dogs, grandma (which stay with us), our daughter, my husband and I. We save the cost of cable, we are more healthy and much more happier. Not bad for people who could not give up cable!!! The money save go in a different account for emergency or vacation. That is the best change we made ever, i promise try it.

    • Flossie

      my son is only 2 1/2 and hasn't watched it yet, but my husbands favorite is all of them…he loves the movie!

My 2 year old got SO excited when she saw the picture of everything you can win in this contest! My family saves money on EVERYTHING we buy from planning our shoppong trips and going CVS'ing! We have more body wash and toothpaste than we know what to do with :) And got it all for free from CVS!! Thank you for helping our family save a ton of money!!

    • lindsey

    • Donna M.

      My grandson, 3, loves Donkey because he's “so silly.” We saw the movie this week, and I highly recommend it. As for saving money, I'm become coupon crazy. I could go weeks without going to the grocery, just living on my stash.

    • Suzanna

      We like the gingerbread man.

    • cristiemc

      I don't have any children, but my favorite character is Donkey. OMG! He's too funny!!

      The best way that I have found to save money is by following Southern Savers. I check the site multiple times per day so that I don't miss anything. Couponing is addictive, and I am totally hooked. Thank you for taking the time to prepare everything for us so that we don't have to think too hard.

    • Michelle

      Definitely Donkey!! Hands down! We also like to save money by going to family nights at our local museums and doing family sponsored outdoor events that are free!!

    • lisagrim

      My brother does the best impression of the Gingerbread Man, making him a favorite at our house. “Not my gumdrop buttons!”

    • Anna

      My son is too little to enjoy the Shrek movies, but my husband thinks they're hilarious! Our family tries to save money in a lot of ways. One way is by going to garage sales whenever we have the chance. I've found a lot of gently used and even new items for very cheap. I don't think we have ever had to pay full price for any of my sons clothes or shoes!

    • TallahasseeLassie

      Gotta love Puss-n-Boots. Best money-saving idea was to really look at the amount of stuff you use each day. Clothes get just as clean with less detergent, you don't need a whole handful of body wash to bathe, etc.

    • Erika Imhoff

      My daughter's favorite character is Fiona. A great way our family saves money is by couponing, of course, but also sticking to our budget and only buying what we need rather than what we want. Living within our means, and I'm sure Fiona is that type of momma as well, with a big ogre like Shrek and three little ones herself.

    • jennifer_b3

      Donkey is our favorite!

    • Patrica

      my 2 1/2 year old seems to love both shrek and donkey equally. planning on taking her to the movie (will be her first theater experience….wish me luck)

    • Melissa

      Donkey is our favorite! For saving money on movies, we use Redbox a lot. Actually going to the theater is usually a once or twice a year event and when we do go, we try to visit the theater in town where tickets are still around $5 or less.

    • mackjackmommy

      My favorite Shrek character is Donkey. “In the morning, I'm makin' waffles!!!” LOL! I save money by stocking up when there is a great sale.

He loves the Shrek movies and has a Shrek game for his Playstation. He also has a Shrek “doctor” game where you remove the body parts without hitting the sides. He was just playing with that yesterday. Shrek's appeal crosses all ages and genders.

    • Stacy B

      We actually seen the movie this weekend! My husband said it was his favorite Shrek yet! My kids favorite is Shrek!

    • I have three girls and they all like different characters. The oldest likes Puss the best. Donkey is my middle dd's favorite, although she says Puss is a close second because Donkey and Puss just go together. :o) And my youngest likes Fiona the best! :o)

    • Blair

      Shrek's the favorite.

    • scarmstrongs@yahoo.com

      M daughters favorite character is Fiona, Shrek and Donkey in that order oh and the Ginger Bread Man. Loves the first one, can't wait to see the last.

    • jessica f

      we like donkey

    • amy

      my kids love all of the shrek movies but we always laugh at puss in boots.

    • kpowerdavis

      My 7-year-old Eleanor Rose loves Fiona – actually claims to BE Fiona now! Says Fiona is strong and smart and doesn't care WHO knows she's beautiful because SHE knows she's beautiful and she makes good decisions (that are better than her husband's) to save EVERYBODY but then gives him a kiss and just walks away 'cause she loves Shrek anyway. Just like WE love Daddy anyway even when he doesn't make a good decision.(oops!).
      Also, we save money by only going to movies at matinee times and save even more by having joined the Royal Crown Club, thru which we've earned free drinks, snacks and just recently, a free movie ticket so we can go see Shrek again!

My 2 year old son even wanted to know if the Donkey in the field near our house was Donkey from Shrek..Our money saving tip is using coupon, stocking up on non-perishables when it's on sale, and only buying what we NEED and only buying what we WANT when we can truly afford it and after thinking about if for a few days.

I went to Publix many times when they offered a $50.00 gas card for $40.00 with a $25.00 purchase. I saved using coupons on groceries and gas!! The best trip was the one I spent $47.00 on my entire purchase which included $50.00 gas card and over $25.00 in groceries. Oh Happy Day!! NOw we are headed to Disney in 2 days and all of our gas expense is taken care of!!!!! Thanks for all the tips it helped us save so we could afford and enjoy this trip!!

      To save money, we cook double portions for dinner so we have lunch the next day. That way, we don't have to eat out for lunch or buy extra stuff for lunch.

    • Tonya

      My son's favorite character is Puss in Boots. We have a a big, orange fluffly cat with personality at home!

    • Alicia

      My sons favorit character is Donkey. The other day we were at McDonalds and he got the happy meal that had shrek in it, well we already had shrek at home and he didnt want that one, so he went up to another little boy and asked if he would like his shrek for his donkey. The very sweet boy agreed because it turned out that he didnt want the donkey but wanted shrek!! kids are so funny.

    • dkschoonover

      My kids love Don-keeee (aka Donkey). They think all of the the Shrek movies are hilarious.

    • Jolly

      We love donkey

    • My daughter's only 2 so I don't think she has a favorite Shrek character. Unless Elmo is in the new Shrek.

      We try to save money when going to the movies by going to the last afternoon show of the day. Usually around 4:00 or 4:30 – our local theater discounts this show time and it's the cheapest time to go. So we still enjoy a outing to the movie and save a few bucks in the process.

    • asbrock

      My 2 year old son's favorite is definately Donkey! (We have a real donkey & he loves him too!)

      To save money around our house, we never leave home without a coupon! Whether we are going to the grocery store, a restaurant, a museum, or amusement park, we have always got a coupon in hand!

    • My kids love Puss n Boots-especially when he gives the big kitty eyes! We save money by matching up deals we find at Southern Savers. My husband is in the military, so I also go on commissaries.com before my shopping trip to see which items are on sale-I cut my grocery bill by 35% just using coupons yesterday. That doesn’t include the sale prices.

    • Teresa

    • sldp

      My family saves money by playing board games and renting our movies from the public library :)

    • Emily

      My family saves lots of money by signing up for the Blockbuster delivery program. We spend $12 a month but can rent unlimited DVD's and have them delivered to the house and get 5 free in store exchanges. This is awesome because we were spending $5.00 every time we went to the movie store for one movie. If we rent 3 movies it pays for itself and it comes straight to the mail box. Each person gets to take turns picking a movie which makes it fun too!

    • Deana Henderson

      Our lives went from living paycheck to paycheck, to suddenly living off one income of disability (my husband was diagnosed with brain cancer a year ago). So thanks to Jenny and her tips, I have learned to budget every penny, and still provide for my family!! It has saved me alot of stress!!!! We hope to see the new Shrek movie soon because our favorite character is donkey!!!!! Love donkey, he makes me laugh…. alot :)

      My 6 yo daughter is a princess fiona fan, my 4 yo daughter likes puss n boots, but donkey gets my vote. My husband likes shrek, what do ya expect from an ogre?
      We save money by using southern savers to help match sales and coupons. It's really funny, because now when my kids want something in the store, theyn don't ask if they can have it, they ask if it's on sale, then if I have any Qs. They know that's the only way they get their fav snacks!

    • Chris McHone

      My sons LOOOOVE Shrek. We have Shrek, Shrek II, and Shrek III, and we watch at least one of them everyday! My 12 month old will stop everything he is doing to watch Shrek, which if you knew him, would amaze you.

    • kcreviews

      My son's favorite character is the Gingerbread Man. He thought it was hilarious especially in Shrek 2. I personally love Puss-n-Boots. So cute with his big eyes.

    • Kimberly McGrew

      I have 3 kids and they love donkey. They think he is absolutely hilarious. I love Fiona and my husband thinks they are all funny-but Donkey tops the like list in our house.

    • Kimberly

      Donkey of course!

    • Stephanie

      My daughters favorite is Fiona and my son's is Donkey. Our favorite money saving tip, besides couponing, is finding a hotel with a free HOT breakfast in the morning. With a family of seven, it is worth the extra $20 a night for a nice hotel that provides a full hot breakfast for our crew. We still come out making a deal.

    • Jacqui

      My 3 1/2 year old and 22 month old can't get enough of Shrek we have the THIRD on DVR and watch it every night!! We can't wait until it comes in theatres. Eventhough my little one is a bit young we are still going to take her to see it.

    • Stephanie B.

      My kids watch the first Shrek on DVD every morning on the way to school. I would have to say that their fave character is Fiona…their favorite part is when she and the bird are singing (Fiona is shrieking), and then the bird pops…priceless to hear the kids mimic her, especially my two-year-old son! My fave character though, is, of course…DONKEY!

    • Livnlol

      The Kitty Cat and the donkey!

    • Amber

      our new favorite way to save money is the welness card at Rite Aid – stack a $5 of $25, a coupon from the paper, a wellness coupon and your wellness discount and you can't get a better deal!!

    • Michelle

      My son is only 18 months old, so he's a little small to have a favorite Shrek character. It was very important for me to be able to stay at home with him when he was born, even though it was going to be really hard financially. My mom had always clipped coupons growing up and I did the same for products I knew I would buy, but otherwise I usually just bought store brands. A friend told me about Southern Savers and I immediately started using it. I was soon able to quit my job and I spend less than $200 a month now on all of our food, diapers, toiletries, etc. and we eat better than ever! Your website helps so many and I really appreciate you doing it!

    • Jamie

      My daughter has watched the movies over and over and her favorite character is Donkey because he is so funny. I am new to Southern Savers and couponing, so I'm just learning about how to save moeny, but I am loving it and enjoying seeing the savings at the bottom of my grocery receipt! THank you so much for this great, useful site!!!! In this economy, it has truly been a blessing!

    • Jennifer

      Donkey is the fav., I suppose. They're all great! We save money by using this site! We go to Publix and use your shopping list with the competitor coupons. There are so many things we couldn't get and couldn't do without the savings. Thx!

      My daughter has yet to see shrek, but would love to be able to share this with her friends that love the donkey as their favorite.

    • kschrodt

      my latest favorite money saving thing is that i've been able to score 2 free movie tickets through entering codes from cereal boxes (1 was kelloggs promotion, 1 was general mills). Kids are super excited about that!

    • Kristin625

      Definitely Donkey. :)

    • Leslie

      My son makes the most adorable Puss in Boots face.

    • My family save lots of money by bringing our own lunches everywhere….and my kids' favorite character is definitely Shrek himself.

    • NC_Sunshine

      I love Donkey!!!! To save money, I find that following SoutherSavers is the answer! :o)

    • SelenaDJ

      My children are thirteen and nine. My oldest helps to clip and file my coupons. While reluctant to begin with (waiting for a coupon and a sale for a particular item) they now love to tell people about Southern Savers and how we are able to save money. ***Donkey*** Thank you.

    • sheilagg

      My granddaughters love Fionna!! I'd love to take them to see this movie when they visit!

    • orutulsa

      My daughter's favorite Shrek character is Fiona, because she has spunk. I like to save money by drying heavy things on a drying rack overnight like towels, jeans and jackets. Then, in the morning I throw them in the dryer for a 10 minute fluff job instead of using electricity for 45 minutes to dry heavy things.

    • Tracy

      We love donkey and puss in boots. We save money so many ways now. I never realized when I started couponing all the different things you can save on. This site makes it too easy.

      Fiona has to be favorite! A way we save money in our home besides couponing, is that we don't have cable or satellite. Enjoying a good family movie together with a great big batch of kettle corn is fun and can bring the family together, but we don't have to pay 30 to 80 bucks a month for cable to get that. You can get Netflix for 8.99/mo.; you can swap up movies with a friend's collection; rent for free from your local library. Many libraries are linked with a network of libraries that mail to each other, to get sooner a movie/book that may be checked out. Little savings on cable bills, phone bills, light bills, etc. can really add up. Of course, there is also the matter of how many un-family-friendly shows are on cable, too, but that is a whole other topic all together :).

    • Sarah

      We love Donkey!!!

    • Emily

      Totally Donkey

    • Logansmom318

      My son's favorite character from all the movies is Donkey. He bursts into convulsive laughter everytime he watches him in any of the movies :)

    • Elena

      All the characters!!!

      Southern Savers and couponing is the way we save money!

      My children love donkey. We save money by using coupons.

    • susan

      Donkey is our fav!

    • Charity

      My daughter loves Princess Fiona

    • Brooke

      We love donkey.

    • I've been re-convinced that I can save w/ coupons but, not w/o the help of all the hard work from Southern Savers educating me on how to maximize my savings.

    • Shawnte Malone

      Donkey is my favorite!

    • Crystal

      My son loves donkey.

    • Valerie S

      My son really likes Shrek, he loves monsters and Shrek is monster-like.

      Donkey is my son's favorite. Can't wait for the new Shrek to come out he watches the others over and over!

    • Amanda Beckett

      My daughter loves Donkey. She thinks he is so funny. I kinda like him too! :)

    • Brooke

      A great way my family saves money is normally to wait for movies to come on DVD, then we rent them for $1 from Redbox or the Blockbuster express machine. However, if we really want to see it and decide to go to the theater we go on Saturday mornings when the ticket price is only $4.00.

    • Wendy

      Both my kids love Shrek, who wouldn't. We had to go see the movie the first night. Super cute and the whole family enjoyed it:)

    • skgaff

      We love Fiona

    • Amiq

      Gingey is our kids fave because we have gingerbread traditions around Christmas time. :)

    • My nephews love Shrek!

    • dealfinder86

      We love Donkey-He is hilarious!! :)

    • Amy

      Puss N Boots! My son loves that face he makes and he tried to do it himself when he gets in trouble

    • Angela P

      My lil' man is only 19 months, but he just loves any funny talking character. I do have to say, with your help I have been couponing & saving since he was just a few months old. My DH's hours were cut at the beginning of 2010 & don't think I would still be able to be a stay @ home Mommy w/o the savings we get. Thanks so much for your help!

    • knvista

      We love Shrek himself! Aside from couponing, we always try to eat our leftovers for additional lunches or dinners. It's surprising how far these go sometimes, giving us several meals for the price of one.

    • JoAnna Robinson

      Our family loves Donkey! He is so funny and keeps us laughing. He didn't disappoint us in Shrek the Final Chapter. It was great!

    • carolinesurfs

      We love Shrek! Our fave character is Donkey, of course!

    • lyssibee

      Shrek, Donkey, Gingey – they are all so comical! :)

    • My kid's favorite character is definitely Shrek himself. She loves Shrek

    • mommyof4

      I've been using Southern Savers since March of this year. With 4 kids at home, couponing is a must for me! After taking your class this week, I am more pumped than before AND my husband is just as addicted! My favorite way to save it to make meals ahead and freeze for busy nights so that we don't spend money on eating out. Donkey is my childrens favorite.

    • Jenni

      My oldest daughter likes Donkey, but she always pronounces it “DON-Keh” just like Shrek says it.

    • Sherrie

      My daughter says that she loves “all of them”, as in all of the Shrek characters. My personal favorite is the cat.

      To save money, we limit our eating out to once a week. We really enjoy going out and decided that it was o.k. to do that. It works for us.

    • Jessica

      Our favorite character is Donkey

    • Deena

      We Love Shrek in our family!!

    • jessica C

      We all love puss in boots here ^_^

      hands down….Donkey!

    • Christin C.

      My son loves Donkey and the song he sings at the end. He has all the Shrek Movies including the Christmas Special and is so looking forward to watching Shrek Forever After.

      I've just found your site and am just getting starting with “serious couponing”. Thanks for all your hard work putting this site together. Not only do I coupon but I also sign up for free samples. This saves us on items like soap, shampoo, etc. They also make great travel size toiletries. If we want to try something we will try to get a sample of it first so we don't waste money on the full size product.

    • Theresa C.

      My kids LOVE donkey! His comments are so funny!

    • My fav character is the donkey!

    • Diana

      We (all 3 kids) love Shrek and Donkey. We started saving money this year by using this website and compare shopping. One thing that we have always done is pick-up spare change. Blows my mind how people will leave “free” money lying around on the ground and are just too lazy to pick it up. We make this a game when we go to town. Who can find the money 1st…

    • Mary Alice

      Our family likes Puss in Boots because he reminds us of our two cats – Kiki and Jack.

    • Amy

      Donkey is hilarious!

    • Mary T

      Our boys love Puss in Boots and Donkey! We joined Southern Savers last month after visiting friends who sold us on “CVS-ing” and have saved, saved, saved!!

    • crystal

      My kids have never seen Shrek before. This will be they have seen. My favorite character is Shrek!
      My family saves money by going to CVS and this site! We will never pay for deodorant, tooth paste, body wash, or shampoo again!
      Thank you!!!

    • jbatch

      Well, when you go to see Shrek, Forever After, take a big purse with washed out cool whip containers inside and plastic cups with lids. Buy the large popcorn and large drink that gets free refills, divide up amongst the kids and go back for more!! You know we all do it!

    • Snowski824

      Love the gingerbread man!

    • Emily

      We like Fionna!

    • Danielle McAuley

      My child's favorite is the kitty cat (Purr).

    • lyn

    • JenniferB

      My daughter loves the gingerbread man!

      One way we save money is by joining Netflix. It's almost $10 a month for one movie out at a time, but we get unlimited movies to watch instantly! My oldest can watch through her Xbox and we use the Wii to watch movies in our living room. My kids love it!

    • Jennifer Holley

      I have little girls so their favorite character is Fionna ( the Princess of course), however Donkey makes us all laugh! We save money by SOUTHERN SAVERS, couponing of course and only eating out if we have coupons, we do survey's on the back of the fast food receipts and get free food too!

    • Dawn Ratner

      To save money I have been using olive oil to remove my waterproof mascara. I can buy olive buy one get one free at publix and usually have a coupon so I pay between 3 and 6 $ for two very large bottles. I dont need as much to remove my makeup and it last much longer then a $4.00 bottle of makeup remover. I was buying the makeup remover at least twice a month so this is a great way to save. For those of you thinking this would break your face out I have been doing it for almost a month now and have had no breakouts and i have oily skin so anyone should be safe.

    • Julie

      PRINCESS FIONA – Since I started couponing, I gained a quick 10lbs because I bought things that I normally don't buy and I quickly started looking a lot like Fiona (not the pretty one!). Now I've learned that I can save on healthy foods too – not just free cheese and ravioli's!! The Shrek bag will remind me to buy healthy so I stop looking like an ogre! I deserve the sampler :)

      Sometimes a busy schedule just forces us to eat out. We have encouraged (or sometimes forced) our children to drink water. However, we are saving that amount of money that would have been spent on soft drinks for spending money on our family vacation. The kids see that amount growing and they are excited about it. It's kind of like a reward for drinking water instead of soft drinks loaded with sugar.

    • dwaynejenn46

      Our children love the cat! One way we save money is to print the coupons on the back of my son's returned homework. Instead of tossing those papers with an empty backside, just recycle them. I've never had to buy paper for coupons.

    • mandy

      I think shrek is our ultimate favorite disney movie. I dont think any others compare to it. Or favorite character is shrek. He is awesome!!

    • Angela

      One great way we all save money (besides couponing of course) is to choose activities around town that are free (or close), even if we've gone before. We try to find new things though. Many people haven't even been to many of the places right here in Birmingham. A free fun family activity we recently happened upon is called geocaching. Basically, you join the geocache website free and go on scavenger hunts set up by other members. Some hunts are simple, and some are more complex. But, it's free and we love going because we always seem to visit places we would have never visited otherwise.

    • Marea

      favorite character is a hard decision, the kids seem to like one, one day and another the next, let's face it they like them all. The kids have just as much fun with coupons and saving money as I do, I sometimes have to stop our youngest from getting coupons while we are in the store.

    • the favorite character is Puss n Boots and favorite way to save money is to let nature be our entertainment, we go for hikes and we collect stuff along the way to make art projects, we reuse old school paper that has been written on and create one of a kind pieces of art. It keeps the kids busy for hours and all you need to buy is Elmers glue.

    • “DONKEY” he is sooooooooooooo Funny!
