Like most of you, I'm sure, a challenge is always fun. I like to set goals for myself and reach them...at least try. My new challenge is to become a better coupon clipper. Every Sunday I cut coupons from the paper, take my coupon book with me to the store, and save about $10-$20 with coupons. Not bad! However, I want to take it a step further and try to save more. Nothing like Extreme Couponing...I don't have time for that with two little boys to keep me busy. I would love to try and save at least $100 a month with coupons.
I recently went to a 2 hour class, not even long enough, about couponing. I learned you could use manufacture coupons with store coupons and which store double coupons. I never knew you could join coupons...BRILLIANT!!!! I may be trying a few things at Target on my next trip. Like I said, the 2 hour class was not nearly enough time to learn how to really get your use out of coupons. Some people really go for it, but I am not interested in that. I wish the Commissary had their own coupons so I could double some up there. That would be helpful. I guess I will start trying out a few other stores to see if I really can save a little more with just a little more couponing.
(Is couponing even a word? It is now I guess :) )
