I had a friend ask me this morning, “So what drives you to save every penny that you can?” I responded with, “I actually did not do it [couponing] for a while because I thought it was about saving pennies, but when I realized that people were saving thousands every year then I took another look at it.”
The key to saving money with couponing is not using coupons in and of themselves (although this does help a little bit with things you were already going to buy), but pairing the coupons up with the deals at the store that week (and going to the stores that double and triple coupons). That’s what what’s I’m here to help you with! I do all of the pairing for you so that you can stockpile food when it is a super good deal.
For me, the most beneficial aspect of couponing has been getting all of the typical “budget breakers” for free at CVS and Walgreens. These include toiletries/makeup/razors/feminine products/paper products/etc. Since I started couponing, I have been able to get thousands of dollars with of products at these stores for pennies on the dollar!

Do you have a couponing story? Have you had to get over any stereotypes that you had associated with couponing?
