Lately

4 Jun

If you’re wondering why things have been a little quiet around here lately, it’s because I’ve picked up a new hobby.

A friend of mine, Veronica, introduced me to the world of couponing. And let me tell you, it’s a whole new world for me!

I’ve never been one to use coupons for anything, but after I went to my first couponing class, my eyes were SLOWLY opened. I still had my doubt’s but I sort of started to understand a little more. I guess you could say I was intrigued more than anything. 

I went home that night and told my husband everything that I learned. I told him that I would give it a try but, I’m not promising how good I’ll be at it.

Then a few days later, Veronica took me with her on a couponing adventure. I was impressed because she had a plan AND she was organized.

These are my first 2 couponing transactions that I did with her.

Yes, you read that right! $1.54 for all of that! 

Did you know that you could use Manufactured coupons at Dollar Tree?!?

This was my first DT purchase: $1.50

All this for $30 at Target. Everything was either on sale and/or had a coupon.

I think I’m all set with Shampoo & Conditioners for a while. Don’t you think!?! $14 total.

image

All the toothbrushes were FREE and everything else was no more than a buck each! $4.75 total.

image

And $4.40 for this!

image

I’ve done lots of small transactions here and there but I think I SCORED with this!! 12 boxes for $12!!

Last night I bought (4) 4 packs of Angel Soft toilet paper for $2.40!

I’m very careful on not buying something just because I have a coupon for it. At this stage, I’m only going for things that I know is useful and that we will use and that we need.

I wouldn’t consider myself an Extreme Couponer at all, far from it, but I do enjoy the little that I have been able to save so far.

I’m a newbie. A beginner. I still have so much to learn but I gotta tell ya, I’m loving every bit of this!

It’s fun. It’s adventurous. It’s even a bit nerve wracking at times.

But at the end of the day when I see all that I bought for the little that I spent, it’s oh so satisfying!
