Learning to Extreme Coupon by Lisa
This will be my ONLINE JOURNAL into learning how to Extreme Coupon. I have been at it for 8 weeks now and building towards a "STOCK PILE." In the past few years, we have experienced the worse kinds of weather from EXTREME ICE STORMS, to an E-5 TORNADO that went through our area to SEVERE FLOODING. No one is safe from Mother Nature. This is my coupon JOURNEY.
My URGE to learn to coupon started 8 weeks ago when I started watching a new television show called "EXTREME COUPONING." I had attempted coupons in the past but never to the extremem that I want to now. On the show was a local woman named Amy and she lived not far from me. She was down to earth. She shared how to start couponing and I thought to myself "I can learn to do that." I felt such an urge to learn. Its interesting, couponing provides a challenge to myself, one that I enjoy so much. My biggest usage of coupons at one time was 65 coupons.
I remember my first time, 8 weeks ago, using coupons. I was all geared up, had my binder with me, filled with a start up of coupons and I was going to be the PERFECT LITTLE SHOPPER, THE PERFECT LITTLE SAVE AND I WAS THE PERFECT LITTLE SPENDER. (LOL) Just because a coupon is printed, you don't have to run out and use every coupon that has been created. There is NOT enough money in a family income to do that. In reality, at first I saved 25%. Then, I would build up to saving 30%. Now, I am upto 50 to 60 percent and very satisfied.
I even dream about what I will save tomorrow when I shop, how I can organize my coupons better, who will be on the show, what coupons will be out and it just goes on and on. How much you save is based on how much time you put into organizing your coupons and checking out your coupons to the prices at your local store when you wander and relax.
First you have to start COUPON COLLECTING................................
