I haven’t had interest in coupons in a while now for various reasons. I don’t get a paper, they normally don’t have the kind of foods or products that we use. They are normally over processed foods and products with lots of chemicals.
That being said we are trying to become very aggressive in our savings, we have a lot we are trying to do over the next few years (kids, paintball trips, vacations, paying off the pathfinder and student loans and triple our savings account.) Between that and the new show “Extreme Couponing” on TLC we (yes we) decided to try couponing.
