Adventures in Couponing


 I am in no way a seasoned couponer but I am learning to get the products I need at a very low
cost.  For the past year, several of my digital friends have been pleading with me to start couponing.  I don't know why but the anxiety would move to 10 when I reach the register with coupons in my hand.  I follow directions to the letter and if for any reason something seem to being be going left.... Abandon Abandon is what I scream (inside) and leave the store immediately. Well, I've gotten better! I am less anxious but still following directions.  My favorite teacher is The Krazy Coupon Lady... She has a wonderful blog and even an app.  She makes couponing so much easier by doing most of the work for you.  


The key to couponing is to have patience, a Sunday paper, a printer, some popular apps and a little time to shop & organize.  Each week I'm going to highlight a few deals that I'm going to try that are simple to execute. This week the deal is a money maker at CVS .  Yes, this deal will put some coins in your pocket. Make sure you have an ibotta account.  (If you are new to ibotta use my link and you will make $10 more on this deal).....

Store: CVS
Coupon: $0.75 off 1 Werther's Original Sugar free coupon at coupons.com
