Extreme Couponing ?!?
As I stated in my post HERE, I am attempting to try out couponing, not just using my advantage card, but actually cutting coupons. As for the the cutting of the coupons I have been successful, every Sunday I get my Sunday newspaper and sit down and cut coupons, and have actually found there have been a lot of coupons I could actually use for things like, salsa, cleaners, other snack food, deodorant, etc. Last week I even went to the grocery store and bought dishwasher soap, and it was already on sale for $1.00 off $4.29, and then I used my manufacturer's coupon to get an additional $1.00 off. Woo I saved 2.00 on one item!! haha (Hey, it is a start right!?) I thought, I can do this I will get more and more coupons and will save A TON!
But then I went to the grocery store again and I was sooo excited to go through my coupons and save BIG BIG money!!! I get to the store, AND I forgot my coupon box at home...FAIL #1.
Then this weekend I get in my car to go Target and Michaels to get some craft items for a few DIY projects this summer. I get to the shopping center....AND I forgot my coupons at home AGAIN...FAIL # 2
Soo thats how couponing is going so far. I'll keep you posted for next weeks coupon adventure.
