I LOVE COUPONS!!!
Close up view
Couponing is a must in this house! I save HUNDREDS of dollars a year because I know how to coupon. I personally think that everyone should coupon. I do it because we have a large family and we really need to, but I feel that no matter what your financial situation is, you should coupon. I have taught classes and I have even written a book about couponing. (I am hoping to get it published!!)
This blog will not be a blog where I type up deals every week for people to try/copy. There are way too many really good websites already and I honestly don't have time. BUT I do want you to learn how to coupon if you don't already know how. I have a facebook page called Couponing Mama. On that page I have a few documents posted that give the basics of couponing. You can read through them and feel free to ask questions on that page if you don't understand something.
As I stated earlier, I did write a book about couponing. My book teaches the basics of couponing, but I also use scripture to back up my reasoning in why I feel everyone should coupon. The Bible has a lot to say about how we spend money and although a coupon may just look like a piece of paper to you, in all actuality it is money. When you go shopping and hand a cashier that little piece of paper, money comes off of your total. It is like you handed her money.....
A few things that I usually always get for free or for less than $1 include,
bars of soap
hair spray/hair gel
PLUS LOTS MORE!!
Think about it....... How much money would you save every year if your were not paying full price for any of these items??
Again, I think people who don't coupon are throwing their hard earned money away. Yes, it takes a little bit of time every week, but it is well worth it!!
As you can see just from some of these pictures, I have saved a LOT of money by using coupons. One question I hear often when it come to having a big family is, "How can you afford them?" Well, this is one of the ways that I am able to have a larger family and purchase what we need and have it not break the bank!
