I know not everyone likes to coupon, and I totally get that. Infact, I didn't think that I would enjoy it, but I found out that I do. It has become a hobby for me. I have been able to save at least 65% every time I go shopping now. Before I used to be happy if for example my total was $120 but I saved $40. Lately my totals have been more like $75 and savings $210. That is what my bill was tonight infact. Its amazing how much you can get for you dollar with coupons. I get this high when I watch the numbers drop. I love when people stop me in the store and ask me to look at my coupon binder. I love to tell people what I get for free. Not only am I buying things we need but I am getting extra stuff too and I am finally finding a way to have a 3 month supply and not feel like its going to kill our budget. Tonight I am pretty sure I bought my year supply of men's body wash. I paid for this group of stuff $4! yeah it was pretty awesome. here is what I got for $4 3 Sunny Delights Pace specialty salsa 8 Gillete hair/body wash (men) 2 whole grain pasta 4 OLay body wash effects 6 scotch brite 3 hand wash 2 toothbrushes 4 Ivory Soap body wash and bar 2 Dial hair/body wash (men) 2 Gillette extra strength deoderant
The way I look at couponing is that even though it can be time consuming, its a way for me to help contribute to our funds available in our budget. I actually really do enjoy it too.
