Coupons, Savings, and such!

So after much debate, I have started (again) using coupons. I know people spend HOURS clipping coupons, but being over here in England, lets just say we don't have any to clip. Instead people send them from the states as our commissary (our grocery store) takes expired coupons (up to 6 months); so I go through GIANT bags of already clipped coupons. Takes forever, a lot are already expired (yes expired from 6 months passed. What, it expires in '09..??) and multiples of the same ones (dog bones, 6 boxes of cereal, ext).

So I've started this blog to see if it is actually worth the hours it takes to go through the bags, sort, and shop.

And so it begins:

  1. I really need to start this. Do you plan ahead or just wing it?

  2. I plan ahead. I have two coupon books. One holds ALL my coupons and the other I take to the commissary. I will write out my list and put an * next to every item I have a coupon on for. It takes a lot of time, but I can run in and out of the commissary without being there all day with 10000 coupons in my hand.

  3. These are so stinkin perfect!! From the picture I assumed you just used jello on each side and it's nice to see that you did something so much better. Delete Skype Account Watch Cartoons Online Sports Streaming Sites Movie Streaming Sites Speed Dating Questions
