Coupon Shopping

Back before Macey was born I was a BIG TIME coupon shopper.  Since then I have fizzled out.  But I’m back in the couponing game and it feels good!  I went on my first “real” coupon shopping trip yesterday and just got the necessities, diapers and cereal.  I forgot to save my receipt so I could tell you how much I saved and how much I spent.  It seems like the deals were a lot better four years ago, before everyone started couponing.  Have you seen that new TLC show, Extreme Couponing?  That’s a bit overboard, I just want to get my food storage pantry built back up.  Justin said he’ll build me a food storage room if I get the hallway closet all filled up.  I kinda hope I do.  That would be fun!  Today I spent naptime getting all my coupon inserts all organized. 


It feels good to have them in individual files instead of all lumped together like they were before.  I can’t handle that kind of chaos!

I hope the deals are bigger and better next week!!! Happy couponing to ya!

    Hey I just have a question. I have already checked out krazy coupon lady and bought their book but the way you have things organized seems a little easier. Are the dates on there the dates the expire?

      Hi Janet. I use for all of my coupon information. Some people cut out all their coupons and organize them into binders. I don’t do that. It takes too much time. The way I organize them is I put the whole coupon insert into a file folder with the date on it. Then, once a sale is posted, pinchingyourpennies tells you the date and which insert that coupon is in and I then go in and cut that coupon out. It’s much more time efficient for me. I hope that makes sense. If not, let me know and I’ll try to explain it more. Thanks soo much for stopping by! Mariesa
