Jumping on the Couponing Bandwagon

So...it's long overdue.

I'm not sure how I will do...but I really should try to save more money than I have been.

I do look for sale items. I do buy lots of generic items. But I do not 'work' to clip a whole bunch of coupons and shop several stores looking for the best price.

This is going to change.

At least a little.

I think what I don't like the most is filing them and weeding out the expired ones. Do I really have time for this??? I don't know! I'm trying to get myself organized. I feel like I will have to try several 'coupon filing' methods before I find one that I really like. Envelopes? A Box? A Notebook? Who knows. But I've gotten a few things to get me started...we'll see how it goes.

Meanwhile, I've been visiting this site for tips and coupons. Check it out! They may just have a 'mommy' for your area!!!

Feel free to share your methods or best tips with me!! (this girl could use some ideas!!)

I am a lousy couponer. (Is that a word?) Anyway, when I do take a coupon it seems there is always a cheaper deal with a no name brand than if I use the "brand" name coupon.
I guess I am just not cut out to couponing.
Good luck!!

♥ I love a good deal! I've seen people use notebooks and all kinds of stuff I ended up using 2 coupon holder things I don't even know what they're called they look like a small expandable filing case... One for food stuff and one for all the other... Seems to work pretty well... I also don't like the weeding through for expired stuff part!

I am actually avoiding weeding through all my coupons for expired ones.

I think of couponing as a job. It is the least I can do to show my hubby how much I appreciate how hard he works to support our family and let me stay at home. Plus getting free or almost free stuff makes me super super happy :)

I use pinchingyourpennies.com I know they have lots of forums for different states. Good luck!!!

Good luck!! Couponing can be a pain. However I have noticed that there are less coupons out there than there used to be. My parents would get them in the mail, now you have to search and research for them!!
