Couponing


So, things are getting expensive. Gas. Groceries. Life with six children. We just learned that our water rates are going up 9% across the county.

While I've always cut coupons (if and when I get a Sunday paper), I wasn't very diligent. I only cut the coupons of the things I regularly buy. And then I'd still buy generic. However, a co-worker of Joe's is really into couponing and has been getting Joe all pumped up about it.

I thought I'd show you my deals.

Um. Yeah. A cardigan and shoes. I'm pretty sure that when Joe was pumped about saving money, he thought I'd actually save the money instead of turning around and spending my savings. (But I got excellent deals on both!)

(Sorry for the dark photo. If it would ever stop raining here, I might have some decent sunlight. And it would help my severe vitamin-D deficiency.)

I use the Grocery Game. It takes most of the work out of it. If it's something you would be interested in shoot me an email.

Oh I am super into couponing! The key if you don't live in a place that is catered to by sites such as the Grocery Game (so where I live) is to cut out every coupon. That way you are prepared for sales. I frequently buy things I never thought I would like because the coupons and sales make them free or nearly free. I've let go of most of my brand loyalties. And now I never pay for things like toothpaste, deodorant, body wash, most otc meds, etc. I don't save as much on food because none of my stores double coupons and I try to eat mostly gluten free. But spending little to nothing elsewhere more than makes up the difference. It's kid of awesome once you get into it.

Just to let you know, you will not be hassled at walgreen's if you buy a fifth deodorant or fifth item if it is a travel size and not excluded on your coupon... If it says ANY. It always works. Just give your MQ's after all items are scanned. Good luck. :) Dee
