Back in the day I used to use coupons a lot. It was like a game to see how much money I could save at the register. However, I had fallen off the bandwagon after switching to a “cleaner” way of eating. Now don’t get me wrong I still use coupons but I am not hardcore with a binder / organizer and all (even though I secretly wish I could be). Honestly though, the thought of that gives me a mini anxiety attack.
Couponing Made Simple has given me a refresher course in how to save money for my family. I am not the type of girl to go out shopping to 4-5 different stores…it’s just not possible for me. With this book help and in tiny little baby steps I have been able to capitalize on some really good deals.
I also just found a little bakery on the other side of town where I can get Nature’s Own bread (I have stopped making my own for a little while) for $1.39 a loaf. I ended up purchasing 3 loaves of bread, two packages of bagels, and a container of cookies because my little people were with me , all for $I0. 39.
At our local grocery I always try to take advantage of the store coupons and I was pleased to find that during the summer Gatorade is on sale almost every week. I have been able to stock up several times by buying four 6-packs with the coupon on the bottle, plus the store loyalty coupon for $9.00!
And I can’t possibly forget to mention that our new favorite ice cream has coupons so I stock up on ice cream and double the coupons on Wednesdays when it’s on sale.
I am glad that Couponing Made Simple has given me little refresher in the coupon using department. Using coupons wisely has its benefits and I can finally enjoy it without having anxiety attacks.
