I'm just burnt

Posted 08-19-2011 at 05:15 PM by sscutscoupons

This isn't fun anymore. It used to be about the thrill of the chase.

Scoring the Qs through dumpster diving/trading/trains/buying them. Getting the train/trade envies in the mail. Going to the store. Competing with myself to try to see if I can beat my savings from the last trip.

Don't get me wrong. We aren't wealthy. And I am grateful that I got as much as I did for as cheap as I did. And that I could donate stuff to some families in need. I don't want to STOP...

Feeling like Crap

IDK if this is allergies or what.. But my throat is KILLING me. I drank ice cold water and soda and even had an Italian Ice. No luck. Still feels terrible.

Anyway, on a better note, I am really getting used to couponing. I've introduced one of my long-time friends to it and I am going to hook my SIL up with AFC too this week.

So far my freebies have been:
Cascades (well 21 cents in tax for 4 packs)
Shick Razors (I THINK these were outright free)...

Getting the hang of this

Posted 07-06-2011 at 06:31 PM by sscutscoupons

This week has been spent visiting Walgreens ISO the Oral-B toothbrushes. It's funny because just last week Kay wanted a $3.99 TB at PathMark and I said let's wait I can get it cheaper. And sure enough, I got it for tax only!
Not the world's most elaborate TB but it def gets the job done. I used 10 Qs (didn't clear the shelf... the store always had more) and gave 2 away to the cashier who was so sweet. I even bought some Extenze- heck it was essentially free. Let's see if it works....

Teaching.. (and learning)

My family is a little taken aback by my newfound hobby. I think they are tired of hearing me talk about coupons and saving...

So, i decided not to talk about it.

Today I brought Kay to the mall. I picked through my Entertainment Guide book to pull out coupons. We went to HER fave place for lunch and got her fave meal. I got the same thing. (it was buy one get one free- saved $6.51)

We walked around Macy's and scored two pairs of shorts and a tee shirt...
