Is Couponing really Worth it? We'll See.

So lately I've been wanting to learn the ropes on "couponing". At first I thought, these ladies are crazy. I mean sure, your getting a good deal on a bunch of crap that you probably won't use, AND it is going to take up more space that you don't have in your house just to store all that crap. On top of it all, you have to subscribe to at least one paper every week, spend Sundays clipping coupons, and then grocery shop at least twice a week to get those deals on "Stuff". Ok having said that, I've also noticed that there are great deals to be had. Getting things for practically free, and its a good way to create a food storage. I've been so curious on how it all works. My friend Megan invited me to do a little shopping with her to show me the "magic". We started at Albertsons then went to Winco. Here is a picture of all the things I got...things I'll totally use! I spent around $10, and $6 of it was the peanut butter (which wasn't the deal we were shooting for). Anyhow today I subscribed to the the learning process begins. Good luck to me. I figure, I don't have to buy "crap", just stuff I'll use, so why not, especially if its free.


  1. There is another lady's site who is in Meridian that's really good. I don't enjoy couponing, but it's fun when you get cheap or free things.

  2. Good for you. I sure wish I had to the stores like you do in Boise and then I could get really good deals like this! It's a lot of work, but it can be worth it. Just don't get too stressed about it :)

  3. Good luck! I always want to do coupons but never seem to have the time!
