Everyday Hero host Bill Murphy got schooled in the art of couponing by one of the best in Floral City. 

  • Woman helps others through couponing
  • Lori Kline uses couponing to donate food to local food bank
  • Kline awarded the hospital's first humanitarian award

Lori Kline is a mom, a wife, and a phlebotomist--a person who draws blood at Citrus Memorial Hospital. She is also someone who knows how to stretch a dollar. 

"I made one trip, a $250 shopping trip, and I paid $100," Kline said. "But then, another time, I had a $75 shopping trip and I paid five dollars." 

Kline's talent isn't just for her and her family, she's also paying it forward by regularly donating food and other items to a local food bank. She also made a similar donation to veterans. 

"I went through everything that I had and I brought three large boxes full of food and I have it to the Veterans Coalition--all with coupons," she said. 

Kline was awarded with the hospital's first humanitarian award, named for Dr. Thomas First, recognizing the highest achievements in serving others. 

Along with her couponing skills, Kline is an advocate for unemployed single parents--providing them with food and shelter.
