I know this topic may not relate to a craft but it is helpful to post. Recently i have started extreme couponing and you wouldn’t believe how much i have saved. The most so far has been $170 and i spent $132. Yes it does take a lot of time but the websites out there are amazing and the authors i wish i could hug. I usually spend around 3-4 hours clipping and planning my shopping trip and another 2-3 hours shopping. I do have a son and i know that he would go crazy if i brought him but it gets me out of the house and gives me the retail therapy that i so much deserve. The one that i mostly use is pocketyourdollars.com which is local to Minnesota. The author posts for most stores that take coupons. I have found that the best deals are at Target. I saved a fortune around Christmas and Easter getting toys for under .30. Now what do i do with all of the savings. Well it funds my craft projects which i have a ton to post and fill you in on what i have been doing. If you do not live in Minnesota there are many blogs out there that you can find on pinterest and google. I strongly recommend taking the time. i have found that it is worth every minute. With the savings i usually shop at Joann’s i have found that they take multiple coupons. I have shopped at Micheal’s and they only let you use one of the single item coupons and sometimes they have 20-30% off your purchase at regular price. there are quite a few things that Joann’s does not carry that Micheal’s does. We just got our first Hobby Lobby and i have yet to explore that store. But i am planning on getting there soon! So take the time and challenge yourself to the game of savings. Also with the coupons i only get the necessities. Being in an apartment i can not stock up like some people do. I would have to rent storage if i went that route. But i save on everything that i usually buy and that makes it all worth while. So good luck to you and share with me your success!
