Who Has Time for Coupons?

I love coupon shows.I love the organization of it all.  I love seeing these women put their hoards of boxed cereal and tins of vegetables on display.  I love watching the cash register number count down and down and down, until you are literally witnessing a woman buying $600 worth of food for $1.32. But, I just can't seem to get it together enough to do it.  Is it me or does it seem like a full-time job?...more

Easy Savings

The other day I was watching "Extreme Couponing" on TLC.  In my wildest dreams, I can't picture myself achieving those kinds of savings.  For one, I don't have forty hours a week to devote to the endeavor.  I wish I did.  But I do have a simple tip I use to garner some easy savings.Did you know that the majority of dollar stores accept coupons?  I'm talking the big ones...Family Dollar, Dollar General, and Dollar Tree.  Yes, Dollar Tree.  Where everything is only a dollar.  ...more

Spend Less Save More: Count your Coupons

Count your coupons. I was in line the other day and a couponer was in front of me she had a large pile of coupons, but I noticed one thing she wasn’t counting them and when she handed them to the cashier she was looking around at the items on the impulse shelves behind her and didn’t realize that the cashier didn’t scan all of her coupons....more

Grocery Budget

This would be one of my areas of biggest challenges when it comes to money.  It always seems like the grocery budget is out of control.I try to coupon, I really do.  But I'll skip a week of clipping and then I don't feel like it and before I know it, I've completely given up.  The good intention is there but I have the feeling I'm paving that road to hell with this one....more
