Time to Coupon
Since I came back to the States I have realized that the groceries here are EXPENSIVE!!!! So, that means I have to get my butt back into gear and start couponing again. I use coupon all the time this and I think I was really good at it, but when we moved to Swaziland I no longer needed to (nor did they coupon). To me saving 10 cents is a savings!!!!
To be successful in saving with coupons, you must and I mean MUST be organized. So I got myself a Staples Mini Binder, business card pages (to hold my savings cards), some coupon pages, sheet protectors and dividers. I started following some amazing blogs and Facebook groups to help me get back into the swing of things. One is Coupon Mom, this site does a great job of helping you find the best values at different stores and where to find the coupons. Then I just get the Sunday paper and search for online printable coupons.
I always try to get the grandson involved as I am doing things, so I came up with a fun little game for him. As I clip the coupons I just through my mess onto the floor so that he can pretend to copy more, or just play in the mess and guess what HE LOVES IT!!!!!
Like I posted in a previous blog, I also joined programs like Ibotta, Ebates and Savingstar. Between all of this I am hoping to take a chunk off of our grocery bills!!!!
I am new again at trying to clip coupons, so any advice is greatly appreciated. Tell me how you save, what you do, what apps or websites that you love.
