Coupon Happy

I have a confession to make, I am a coupon junkie. I've been seriously clipping coupons for about a year now. I really do have an obsession starting from it. I don't see why I have to pay for anything full price at the stores and I love getting things for free! I subscribe to several blogs that tell me how to save money and get things for free. There is a blog that is based out of Northwest Arkansas that is great it's called Passion for Savings. But if you don't live here there is a Frugal Map that lists all of the blogs by state to help you find the best blog to follow.

I have been organizing my coupons with an accordion filing system that someone gave me when we first got married. I love the according file system expect when they fall out and go all over the isles of Walmart or Target! After this happened twice to me, Chris suggested that I needed to come up with a better system. After doing lots of research, I decided that I would go with the coupon binder. It took me awhile to transfer all of the coupons over but I'm one happy coupon clipper! I think that my obsession might develop into an addiction!

Old System: I should have taken a before picture

I use coupons all the time. I never pay full price for ANYTHING! Unless it's on sale or I have a coupon, I don't buy it. It's kind of fun to get the best deals! Love the new organizer!

I LOVE coupons and I LOVE saving money even more. Totally love the idea of the coupon book, I'm going to have to get one. I've been doing the grocery game and love it.
