In response to a specific episode of 'Sister Wives' Season 1, Episode 8, Gwendlyn shared her insights into the financial struggles the Brown family faced. She affectionately recalled her mother's remarkable couponing skills, describing Christine as a "master couponer" whose dedication to cost-saving measures was "insane."

In a household that exceeded 15 members, Janelle and Kody stood as the sole providers with full-time jobs. Surprisingly, after watching the episode, Gwendyln expressed her curiosity about the family's financial situation, wondering where all their money went. Despite owning a spacious house and a sports car, finances remained tightly stretched. Notably, the sports car had been acquired when it was already seven years old, highlighting the Browns' frugal approach.


In a revealing moment during the episode, Kody openly admitted, "We're all like everybody else," acknowledging the family's ongoing struggle to make ends meet. Janelle chimed in, emphasizing that there never seemed to be enough money for the entire family, yet they somehow managed to persevere through the tough times. When it came to health insurance, Kody's concern about potential discrimination led him to make a difficult decision: not all their children were covered under his insurance plan. The ramifications of this choice became evident when Madison, the child of Kody and Janelle, had to undergo an emergency appendectomy, costing the family an entire year's worth of wages. This experience taught Kody a valuable lesson about avoiding financial decisions driven by fear.

Additionally, Christine's resourcefulness extends to utilizing numerous coupons to maximize savings.

In response to these revelations, Gwendyln enthusiastically bestowed the title of 'master couponer' upon her mother, Christine. Gwendyln even shared a charming detail, mentioning that Christine keeps her coupons organized in a baseball card book, with each section dedicated to specific discounts. This clever system allows her to effortlessly flip through the coupons when the time comes to make use of them. Clearly, Christine's dedication and savvy approach to couponing make her an integral part of the family's financial management.
