Future Coupon Mama?

   Ok, so a few weeks ago, I watched a TV show called extreme couponing and it really intrigued me. They introduced three extreme couponers(one who even dumpter dives for them, talk about whack, who go on shopping trips and save literally thousands of dollars in product.They all had stockpiles of grocery and toiletry items that they literally get for pennies on the dollar. At first I thought that this was a bit cukoo, but alot of times they donate the stuff to food banks. And its always good to be prepared.
  Couponing is always something I have wanted to try, but it just seemed like too much of an effort to me. Clipping out all of those coupons,etc. But I think I am going to go for it, and for the next month, I have vowed not to go to the grocery store unless I have at least 8-10 coupons to use. I went to coupon clippers and ordered a bunch of coupons to get me started. My next step is to get some sort of organizer, and you know me, it will be a pretty crafty one..........
   In the meantime,check out Hip2Save   for some awesome deals. Future coupon mama? eh, maybe.


  1. So how is the coupon thing working for you?- Crystal

  2. For some reason I just now saw this. It is going pretty well. I managed to save a total of 5,000 dollars last year on everything combined(clothing, groceries.etc)I also have a small stockpile that I keep stocked with items i find on sale...... =-) If I can do it, anyone can.....
