Okay, I have watched the shows both on a TV and through YouTube videos. I am intrigued. I checked the websites of the stores I go to and found they do have store coupons that you can either print or have loaded onto your store rewards card automatically. One problem with having them on the rewards card is that you can’t check expiration dates. You have to print a list of the coupons and add that info yourself. Overall however, I like the convenience of it. I may do both, have a print copy as well as load up the rewards card.
Quite often, out seems that the products that I use do not have coupons, such as large bags of flour. You see, I cook without using a lot of boxed/packaged foods. I am very curious though as to how much better I can build the pantry with the couponing.
Over the weekend, I had purchased 2 months worth of food for $124 without using any coupons. I wonder how much more I could have bought had I been extreme couponing?
My beloved is changing jobs. Within two weeks, he will no longer be doing a trucking job that takes him away from home for a week or more at a time. He will be working locally and home every night, in likely with weekends off. It is something we have been wanting for a long time. I will be planning less shopping trips, but making larger purchase amounts when we do go. My beloved is great about helping me and has no problem with us hooking up a utility trailer and taking lots of 18-gallon totes to haul the groceries home in. Shopping that way, we go once a month instead of every week or two.
