All About Couponing: The Makings of a Coupon Addict – How I Got Here

by Marcy on June 25, 2009 · 0 comments


I have been clipping coupons for a long time, but it wasn’t until I quit my job to stay at home full time that I became really serious about it. Between the reduction in our income and rising grocery prices I knew that I had to do something to cut expenses. Food and household item expenditures seemed like a good place to start.

I had no idea just how much money could be saved using coupons until I found the world of money saving/couponing blogging. (Check out my blog roll in the right hand side bar of this site and you’ll find a few of my favorite “frugal” blogs.)

I have found the cost of my Sunday paper to be well worth the savings that I am able to get by combining my coupons with sales. What impresses me the most is that I haven’t so much changed what I am buying…I have just changed how I am buying it. For example, last week I bought big boxes of Kellogg’s cereal for $1! I was able to do this by using coupons, combining them with sales, and shopping around.

In an effort to share some information about what I have learned about couponing this year, I am going to write a series of posts titled “All About Couponing“. I am hoping that this will help those of you who are newer to couponing, or those of you who are thinking about trying it out, but aren’t sure where to start.
