cracker-jack…when a dime bought something good?

I just went shopping with my sister Laurie and believe me–I witnessed a pro in action. This chicky is really a coupon queen. She bought name brand stuff–that I never even look at because it’s too expensive–and paid pennies on the dollar. No kidding. The register rang up $88.00 and she only paid $37.00. Less than HALF. I had to keep reminding myself to snap my mouth back shut. I was speechless and you know that is a rare thing.

So, I’m tired of being too busy to use coupons–because, quite frankly, I can’t afford to be too busy. When my dollar won’t stretch to afford all that I have in the cart–I have always put things back. Well, not anymore! I’m going to pull out my trusty coupons and take all that loot home.

Now if I could only figure out how.

So I asked her if she would do a little coupon class for all of us would-be penny pinchers–if I promised to make brownies or something…

…and she agreed. WAHOO!

I will be more careful with the money I make in order to stretch it farther.

  1. Count me in on the long distance group. Coupons make it possible for me to get things I normally wouldn’t or to try a new product, but I’ve never ever saved more than half on my total bill. Usually only 10 – 15% of the total. This would be so helpful right now. I’ll be waiting.

  2. I love that. Our ward is doing one with our own “coupon lady” on February 25. It is a one time class and I have never seen her pay full price for anything. It never hurts to go to another one either. count me in.

  3. I’m sooo there! I don’t know if I’ll be going to the ward one or not. I would really like to, but I’m still figuring out what is best for my little squish! 🙂 This is such a great idea! 🙂
