My Picks for the Best Extreme Couponing Resources

I was away from my keyboard an awful lot last week, due to a family emergency. This meant that when I did have time to sit down at my computer, I did not have time to read every feed in my feedreader. Since extreme couponing wasn't high on my "to do list," I marked my coupon blogs as read and carried on -- except by doing that, I felt really out of the loop and realized that I missed reading those posts. So, I stopped and thought about which blogs would be the most fun -- and the most useful to me. I marked those that didn't make my little spur-of-the-moment list as read and carried on. ...more

My Coupon Binder

I've learned that organizing my coupon binder alphabetically rather than by category works soooo much better for me and therefore saves me lots more time.I file my coupons mostly by product name and I find that I can thumb right to what I'm looking for rather quickly.For example, Secret Deodorant would be filed under "S" instead of "D" and Viva Paper Towels behind the "V" tab instead of "P" for Paper Towels or Paper Products.  Get it?  Easy enough?...more

Before You Buy

If you're like me, most of your shopping has moved online.  It's just so easy to point, click, and fill up that shopping cart!  But before you buy, make sure you check for an online coupon!  On average, if there is a coupon available for that'll save an average of 10 to 15 percent!!  And that can really add up if you're doing major shopping such as Christmas or Back To School!Some of my favorite sites are:

Extreme Couponing Tips for Back-to-School Shopping

We had an awesome extreme couponing week last week, even if we didn't stick to our budget, (again). It was awesome because we got to take advantage of back-to-school sales and buy office/school supplies, and there's not much we like more than fondling note pads, pencils and glue. What? Why are you looking at me like that. You like it too, admit it!...more

Sharing the Stockpile is the Best Part of Extreme Couponing

Did you see any of the TLC Extreme Couponing shows where the couponers talked about sharing items from their stockpile with friends or family? There was one episode where a couponer's daughter-in-law came over and "shopped her stockpile" -- I thought that was awesome, and it made me kind of sad that my grown kids live so far away. The would LOVE to shop my stockpile and I'd love to let them do it. ...more

Extreme Couponing Lesson 37: Stick to Your Plan or You'll Go Over Budget

I was worried about blowing our $125 a week grocery budget, but I thought we'd blow it because of our first farmers market trip of the year. Well, we definitely blew the budget, but we blew it because I didn't stick to the plan. And because I had a bad plan to start with. Let me show you what happened....more
