I got an email from Fast Fixin this morning congratulating me on my 1 year anniversary of being in the club. They attached $1/1 coupons with the email.
While that may not be terribly exciting- what is exciting is remembering the great Dino-bites heist at Walmart which was the first coupon deal I every did! If you missed out on this deal I won’t rub it in- if you scored this deal have you eaten all your nuggets yet?
I have been a couponer for a little over a year now and I can’t even begin to imagine how much our family has saved. I stopped keeping track awhile ago but I can tell you before our baby we used to spend about $100-$120/ week plus another $60 or so at Costco every month. Conservatively our budget for 2 people was $500/month. That did not include HBA as I was shopping department stores back then. This month I have challenged myself with $30/week for everything (including the baby and dog). That is roughly $120 in March- or about 25% of what we used to spend. I don’t have the department store products anymore but I do have an entire basket of makeup I got free that I can play with anytime. I never have to rush out to the store when I run out of something and pay an outrageous amount. I am very pleased to be able to really stretch our dollars and stay home with our little girl. Learning to coupon has been a fun and profitable hobby for me and I hope for you as well!
