So as my first official post for this blog, I thought I’d tell you a bit about why I wanted to create it.
I am a couponer. I have been couponing and budgeting for my family of four for awhile, but have gotten very good at it in the last year. My receipts (and excel spreadsheets! – I have problems) detail that in the last year I have saved over $6,000 in food, diapers, and toiletries. That figure alone propelled me into doing this.
I love a good deal. I love that I have learned to “buy” things for free. My family, my neighbors, my friends, and several local shelters have benefited from all of this. And as much as I enjoy getting a good deal, I enjoy it more when I can share the wealth. And the knowledge! I love when I can teach someone else or give them the heads up. And so here we are.
I credit a lot of great blogs with teaching me how to be a smart shopper. I will credit them as we go, but I want to do it the right way (and I’m new to this), so I’ll hold off on that for a bit.
Welcome to my blog!! I hope that if nothing else, you learn to save a lot of money.
