I have a confession to make, and before you go thinking it's something really weird, be assured...you want to know what it is. :o)
First, let me say that I've gotten very backed up with book reviews. Hopefully, that will be resolved here in a few weeks when everything settles down. So, here's a big apology for the delay to authors/publishers that are waiting for the reviews to pop up...trust me, they're on the way!
Okay, now for my confession. Recently, I have discovered this thing called extreme couponing. Now, seriously, I had no idea it was such a HUGE thing!!! There are sooooo many websites devoted to this, and countless blogs that post updates and freebies/coupons 10-15 times a day. I have,.....um.....gotten a little addicted. (There, I've said it.) I truly had no idea how profitable this could be! I don't have all my recent savings tabulated yet (I'm waiting until the end of the month), but I'm at an average savings right now of 50% thanks to all the tips and tricks that I've learned just in the past week!
In the past, I've clipped a few coupons here and there, but I never really saw any kind of huge impact, and didn't look harder to find out how people were saving money with them. Now, I know! It's all about pairing your coupons with existing store sales. Oh, and a store that doubles coupons helps a lot, too!
Here are some of the sites I've been to in the past couple of weeks:
Trust me, that's only a handful of what's out there!
In addition to those, there are also a few coupon sites where you can print coupons right off your computer. Here's a list of those:
I won't even attempt to go into the greatness that is Walgreen's, but will instead, let you discover it for yourself here.
So....a little break away from what I normally post about on here, but I just couldn't keep it to myself! No joke, it's a lot of fun, especially when you see what you can save at the store. :o) Now, I'm trying to get the rest of my family on the bandwagon!
