Happy Friday!!!

Today I'm going to focus on something that I love doing and just really have gotten in to as of late!  Couponing!  Do you have any idea what a rush it can be to actually get 50-60% off your entire purchase????  Now, don't get me wrong, I am not an extreme couponer!  Who has time for that?  But I do follow many extreme couponers and check their listings for the best deals and for the free stuff.  I also buy two papers every Sunday and get coupons from the girls at work.  I love getting those awesome deals.  I have a small stockpile in the basement and I'm pretty well stocked up for a while with deoderant, toothpaste, razors, body wash and haircare!  I love that feeling I get of getting something for free!!!  It's awesome.  I takes a little time to clip the coupons and to file them away in their own little space in my coupon book but it is totally worth it!  I would just love if I could figure out a way to get toilet paper for free!  25cent coupons just don't touch the price of toilet paper!  

For those of you who don't take the time to use coupons let me tell you, you are missing out!  My biggest haul was spending 350.00 at Dillons and leaving only paying 170.00 which for me was bliss!  You just have to go into it focused on what you are getting and what the sales are and how to work the coupons.  I'm not one that likes to work the system and I won't get other people to come with me to do different transactions but I love a great deal!  I'm hoping that I can further my couponing in the future to expand my stockpile.  I love being able to go downstairs and just pick up deoderant or shampoo or laundry detergent.  Anyway,  that's my Friday bit of wisdom for whats its worth.  If you struggle with money and want to be able to save a little here and there start out slow and in a little bit you will want to invest a little time and start saving more!  Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

My Mom was a cashier in a grocery store my entire life, so coupons, reading fliers and going a million stores to get deals was the norm. I SWORE I wouldn't be my Mom when I had kids but I so am :)
