I've joined the coupon craze

Several weeks ago my sister Crystal invited me to a coupon class that was being held at her Church. I have seen how well other people do with using coupons when shopping and really wanted to learn how to save money while shopping. Since taking this class, I have saved more money than I have ever saved in the past while using the coupons.

I didn't realize how easy this was going to be. At first I was nervous about getting started with it, but once I got started I wondered why I waited so long to join in with the coupon craze. I am so thankful that I did. I don't have my receipts right here with me, I will do another post later to share my savings with you. If you don't already use coupons, I encourage you to give it a try, you'll be surprised at how much you can save.


  1. I'm so excited for you! I know how much you've saved and it's a little ridiculous (in a good way!) Thannk you for being the "Coupon Nazi" and finally encouraging me to get on board. I can't wait to go to the grocery store next week and see how much better I can do!!

  2. I just started couponing recently too. I am hooked! It's a little bit compulsive, this saving money, but doesn't it feel good?!

  3. I have done a little couponin' and my friend and I are going to a class tomorrow at our county extension office! I'm looking forward to it. Please let us know how you do and give any pointers! :D

  4. I dont spend as much time as some people at it (the girl I took the class from says she spends about 3 hours every night on it, which is just way too much for me!)-- but I have cut our household/grocery expenses by AT LEAST $25.00 each week!!! It's crazy at how much money you can save when you know the tricks! :)

  5. Tania,
    I am fixing to get on the band wagon and really start again!(I use to and then didn't make time for it). Any pointers?? Any certain sites (if you get any online couplons)you use online? I would welcome any advice!!
    Thanks and good luck to you.
