Couponing

I've been couponing... my daughter, Holly, doesn't believe that I coupon!  Are you kidding? I'm a mom on a REALLY STRICT budget!  So before the end of the year I decided that it's free money and I was just throwing it away.  I'm not crazy like some extreme couponers... I dont even save the coupons for the things I don't use.  I'm not the type to get coffee just because it's free- I mean I guess I could always donate it to someone or a food bank or something... 

Here's my binder... 




I have a 1" binder and I am going to graduate to a 2" D ring binder.... 
I love my binder... Saren helps me cut coupons and organize them, I have my friends all helping save the coupons they don't use... 


I went to the store yesterday and made my best deal yet...  between watching ads and coupons....




YEP!! I saved 43% on my purchases!! I'm so freaking proud of myself... I've been telling everyone!

I only bought 1 thing that wasn't on sale... and it was a lunchable cuz I was starving!

If you have helpful ideas, websites or anything else... let me know...
