Joe Daugirdas, also known as The Coupon Guy®, has been honing his shopping skills in the Northeast Ohio area for many years.  He has built his saving ways to the point where he typically saves 70% to 80% when shopping for groceries and over 90% for toiletries.  He has also received money back from some stores including one trip to Giant Eagle supermarket that netted him $7.02 along with $41.35 worth of groceries. Savings of 90% to 100% are also not uncommon. As an example, a shopping trip to Tops Supermarkets cost him $49.81 for $444.10 worth of groceries, an 89% savings.  Much of what he purchases is then donated to charitable organizations such as the Cleveland Food Bank and local churches.

Using his shopping skills, Joe began teaching the "Savvy Shopper" class at Lakeland Community College in Kirtland, Ohio, along with "Choosing Cell Phones", a class designed to help people find the best cell phone deals. He has also taught classes on how to save money on gasoline/natural gas, weddings, travel, and a class for teenagers. Currently, he teaches a Couponing/Savvy Shopper, Cutting the Cord, and Travel Affordably classes.

He has been active with Junior Achievement in schools across the Cleveland area, teaching pre-teens and teens the value of fiscal responsibility as they enter adulthood.

Joe has taught his savings class to many organizations from Senior Centers to PTA's, including the Eastlake Women's Club, where he helped them win the 'Most Entertaining' award for Women's Clubs of Ohio in 2005.  Joe has also taught at many libraries throughout Ohio featuring full houses at Twinsburg, Chardon, Brecksville, and Elyria libraries. Joe has also spoken at area businesses, including Tri-C, Lake Hospitals, and Hyland Software.

Joe has been featured on TV, including CBS, ABC, FOX, and NBC News. He has been on several radio shows including NPR, Family Matters with Caroline and Jacquie, and WTAM 1100 AM radio. The BBC interviewed him about couponing. He was on WINT 1330 AM weekly for years. Joe has also been featured in many newspapers articles.

Joe is a full-time employee at Applied Industrial Technologies.  He was an Auxiliary Policeman for Willowick for 17 years.  Joe lives in Willoughby Hills, Ohio, with his wife, Claudine, and their two cats, Laurra and Mr. Dazzles.
