So as I said in my previous post, I am really trying hard to get into this "Couponing" craze.
I am finding it rather difficult because of a few reasons.
1) I don't really care to spend money on things that I KNOW Mr. Dogtags and I wont use. For example, just because itch cream is on sale and after the coupon it comes out to be $0.30, doesn't mean I necessarily want to buy that. I see so many women buy outrageous numbers of things that just ends up sitting on their shelves at home.
2) I haven't yet been able to convince myself that waking up before dawn to try to rush to buy a bunch of papers is worth it. I enjoy my sleep and waking up before 6am to fight the local women for the papers doesn't sound like fun to me. (and trust me, in my area the local ladies CLEAN OUT the papers and quickly)
3) Just from listening to some of the horror stories these ladies share about evil cashiers ans store managers making their shopping trips hell, and customers snickering when they see someone with a binder full of coupons.
In the end though, all of these things can be overcome with smart shopping and a little bit of organization.
I am learning slowly and I would like to share a few places for you to visit if you are looking to get involved with couponing too.
Also, if you LOVE a good deal (who doesnt?) Check out these legitimate websites that offer everyday items on the cheap:
(my personal favorite!)
I hope you check out some of these great sites.
They have helped me get started and I know they can help you too!
