Fantabulously Frugal Friday:

by Lisa on October 16th, 2009

I really get a kick out of saving coupons from the paper each week.  Y’all know how much I love saving money when shopping for fun stuff online… so it stands to reason that I would want to save money on necessities too!

When I was growing up my parents were big into couponing.  When we went on our weekly trips to the grocery store, we didn’t buy anything (save for meat, milk, bread, and eggs) unless we had a coupon.  As a kiddo this would upset me to no end.  Life isn’t fair when you’re 8-years-old and can only have Fruit Roll-Ups once every three months.  I think it’s pretty accurate to say that I hated coupons!

Now that I’m an adult though and my parents aren’t here to buy my Fruit Roll-Ups (shhh…don’t tell anyone), I love coupons.  It takes a little bit of work, but it is SO worth it.  My boyfriend and I make a game out of seeing how much we can save every time we go grocery shopping.  We are by no means professional grocery shoppers (you will find plenty of those people on the internet), but we can usually save 30-40% off our grocery bill simply by having coupons for the things we were already going to buy. 

So, if you can’t tell, I highly recommend couponing.  It makes economical cents.  (hahahaha)

If clipping coupons from the weekend paper isn’t something you relish doing, makes it even easier because you can print the coupons straight off the internet! 

The coupons available on update regularly and you can usually print multiples of each coupon, just in case there’s something you love and want to buy multiples of it.  I look through the site frequently and almost always find coupons for products I use, which makes it super easy to save a little bit of extra $$$.

Saving Money = Good.  Spending money when you could have saved just by having a coupon = Bad.
