Coupons Anyone?

OK....Everyone who knows me knows that I do not like to use coupons...usually they are for junk food or expensive cleaners and toiletries and they take gobs of your time! I buy mainly store brands and even with the best coupons...the name brand is usually not cheaper. If you meal plan and use store brands you will be well on your way to saving lots of money. I still believe that!!! However, I had a good friend who challenged me about the whole coupon idea. She said that she could show me a way to use coupons and I would save a great deal of money. She was right!!! I am saving quite a lot of of the tricks that I foolishly didn't think about was only using coupons to buy things that are at their lowest sale price. (be careful here because some things on sale coupled with a coupon are still more expensive than the store brand)

She also turned me on to a great web site that taught me how to play the CVS game. I will not even attempt to describe can go here and look for the section on the right side that says CVS 101. She offers many tips. You will love her site. This is a young mother who really has it together and the Lord is using her greatly. Let me know what you think......Hey and don't forget...Love those Babies!

Thank you for your nice comment on my blog. I sit down and plan out our meals, but I still write down every $ we spend. I also do lots of math to make sure I'm getting the best deal. Because buying in bulk is not always the best way. If I find name brands on sale with a coupon and it lands up cheaper, I will buy. Other than that we buy store brands.
Love your blog and ministry!
