I coupon.....I have been couponing for many, many years and I loooooove it.....my family and friends call me the Coupon Princess...I am too young to be Queen....LOL....everyone knows I wont shop w/o coupons and green bags...I refuse to pay retail for anything if I can possibly help it and always search out sales,bargains and clearence and apply coupons to those for even better savings......I wanna say that I do watch Extreme Couponing....I am NOT in any way like those people on there.....II dont spend 20 plus hours a week prepping for shopping trips.....and I have a nicely stocked stockpile but I dont have hundreds of anything like that....I sometimes buy in a large quantity which for me is ten of something but that is always for a donation.....that being said....to start I would decide what I needed to buy and what store I am shopping at and see if they have weekly sales and a sales flyer and see if anything I needed was on sale....I would go to the stores website to see if they have special deals and or coupons.....I would buy the Sundays Papers for Coupons and look for Internet Coupons on the sites of the items I am buying if the store accepts the net coupons....not all of them do and most stores around me dont due to fraud.......which stinks....I have learned all of the coupon policies for the stores that I shop at most frequently to keep up on changes.....I see that you are in Canada.....(Canada Rocks My CH was born there.....sorry I got off track there for a minute) and I am not sure if you have ALL YOU magazine there...its sold in Walmarts or you can subscribe to it and its a monthly magazine full of awesome coupons...that can be used everywhere not just at Walmarts........I have helped many people get started with couponing, helped family and friends shop with coupons, helped people through the toughest times using coupons.....I have taught coupon classes for family and friends, and loooooove finding awesome bargains and donating to charities for people and animals buying things/getting freebies with coupons.....there is nothing better than a coupon high.....LOL....so lets talk couponing.
there is a topic in the Veggie Patch called Last Thing You Bought where talk about what we have purchased and I always write about the awesome deals I get with sales and coupons.
Good Luck and Have Fun Couponing
Peace, LOve and Hippie Couponing
