My Journey Through Couponing – part 2
My coupon box is made and I didn’t spend a dime on it – just used what I had laying around the house. It turned out pretty good – I am very pleased with it. see yesterday’s post
Today I am going to start filling it up. I have a bunch of coupons that I have printed from various websites and I have some that I picked off the blinkies at grocery stores. When the blinky ones are good I grab a few of them, depending on their expiration date, and shove them in my back pocket where they sometimes stay until after a few jean washes and I wonder what I did with those blinkie coupons. By then they are one solid, thick, wrinkled coupon. This is the only negative aspect of getting the laundry done every day.
It is going to take me a good while to fill this box up. I don’t get the paper – I refuse to pay money for the crud our local paper spouts – so my coupon resources will be limited to blinkies and the internet.
Does anybody know how to get the Sunday coupons without getting the paper???
So far, my favorite online coupons spots are:
Wow Coupons This place isn’t my favorite but if you scroll down to the bottom of the page there are some really good coupons to browse. The only problem is that most of them want you to fill out something to get each coupon. If you decide to do this I suggest using a special Junk mail only email address
I am only printing coupons on things we do use or would try if I can get it at a nice discount. I think it would be overwhelming at this stage in my couponing journey to try to keep up with every coupon out there. I think that is where I blow it each time I try getting into using coupons.
Most coupon spots will let you print each coupon off twice and I think they change them up every week. I don’t think it would be honest of me to try to circumvent that to get more coupons. I don’t want frugality to turn me to greed so I am just going to follow the rules and see what I can do with what I am offered.
Next I am going to try my hand at matching coupons up to sales in my local flyers. Hopefully I will find some nice deals this weekend to post about.
