If you haven't already, this is a GREAT week to start clipping, organizing and using coupons!! Most of us could afford to save a few dollars, especially with the escalating gas prices. By no means am I an expert but I strive to become more coupon savvy with every grocery trip. Since our family of four lives on one full income I am able to do my part to stretch every dollar by finding ways to save on the things we buy most.
This handy dandy organizer goes everywhere with me. I have my coupons in order by expiration date and divided into the following categories:
- food groceries
- household staples
- specific store deals
Although I am still learning, couponing has become very addicting! I hate to pay full price now. Here is what I got at CVS this morning. Bounty, (3) Charmin, (2) Tide, (2) Crest, (3) Dawn, contact solution and an Oral B toothbrush. I used a coupon for each item, got a couple things completely free and earned $20 in extra care bucks for my next visit. It's defnitely worth signing up for a (free) membership card to whichever store is closest to you!
Maybe I've gone a little overboard, but the Smiths will have clean dishes for a verrrrry long time.....
And we will have sparkly fresh teeth for months......
Wonder what I can stock up on next???
