Coupons and me

Posted 02-28-2009 at 03:17 PM by Michele625

I am beginning to get back on track again feeling like the supermom that I am. This economy has got me down, and I have never been a couponing mom before. But I just happen to watch a great TV show about couponing, so that week I downloaded some coupons and saved $19 on my grocery bill that week. I know that's not much....but I was saving nothing before. so, its something.

I really am confused about the wishlist thing. I see where I post my URL link for my wishlist,...

I came here to post something fun, but I started looking around at the recent posts, and now I'm in a funk.

First, I read that MBPNursy passed away due to complications from gastric bypass surgery. I was not lucky enough to know Nursy, but I have read many of her posts and always thought she was wise, direct, and on target with her comments.

I see the benefit of being systematic in shopping sales and using coupons in harmony with sales. I'm getter better at it, but my goal is not to stockpile, and here's my rationale:
