O/T is anyone here into "couponing"??
So I’ve been looking to save money. So many of our bills have gone up since the SS’s g/f moved in, and the baby came… electricity, water and GROCERY bill…
I’ve watched that extreme coupon-ing show a few times and I think that for SOME of those people, they’ve got a hoarding complex… really, who needs 250 bottles of mustard? But others, I see who donate to churches or homeless shelters, really inspired me.
I’m new at the couponing thing. I’ve been pulling coupons off of websites and such, and have found a couple that actually give you the best places/deals to combine with your coupons to get the best price.
I even got credit back for razors at Wal-Mart last weekend (woo hooo, and it’s not like we don’t USE razors, right?)
One thing I noticed is that there’s a ton of junk being sold with coupons and we eat very little prepared foods, a coupon isn’t worth it to me if it’s for something that we won’t use or eat!
Does anyone have any tips/suggestions/websites/ideas to share?
This past weekend, I saved $22.50 on my grocery bill… not bad for a beginner!
