Still Learning

This is a constant happening I know. I'll get right to it! I'm excited about coupons. Yes, we love to watch TLC's Extreme Couponing. I've heard it's fake, blah blah. No worries, we still like it! I just learned that while shopping at Target, you can purchase some items & you will then qualify to receive a gift card w/your purchase. This happened to us last night. It was a fluke really but worked in our favor! The huge sign above our items failed to be taken down from last week! Whoohoo! I broke up our transaction only so I could use the gift card towards the total of the rest of our items. I like when this happens. Plus our register guy was super nice & took all our Target coupons plus all manuf ones. Sah--weet! (w/zero problems that is. My point? Smiling cashier always a plus. A younger guy a plus too!) We learned this via Hip2Save & our many visits w/coupons. =)

Does anyone use Coupon$ense? We did in the past but doing this again, I just don't want to pay for this again every month. We need to save $$ not spend it. I've been using a few different sites, but not sure if I'm sold or not. This time around, we clip coupons & use a binder to hold all. In the past, I just would write the Coupon$ense number on it & file it away. Lots of coupons went unused & I never saw what I had. I like the binder system because it allows me to carry & take along on all our shopping trips.

What works best for you? Any coupons sites that you love? Please share w/me! I know of all the sites you can print from, I guess I'm looking for tips, tricks of the trade, etc.

Thank you in advance!!

Wish Norway was just as big on coupons as America. I would love to go on a bargain some day =)

Followed, hope you don’t mind. And who knows, maybe you’ll visit me someday too.
