couponing is way harder than it looks
So I have spent the last 2 days searching through couponing sites, printing coupons, and pouring over ads. It is so hard.. and my fear is that I will be spending all of this time clipping coupons and organizing and planning my shopping trips and either buy things I don't need or either not save much money in comparison to my time spent. I don't know.. I'm going to try this for a month and see how it goes. I need to subscribe to a Sunday paper- I've also looked into a few magazine subscriptions that have a lot of really good coupons. Like I've said before my stores here do not double coupons and also if I stockpile, I just have a room full of processed foods (household goods too, but that's okay). I try to cook with as many real and fresh ingredients as I can. All the couponing sites say don't even make a menu or a list of things you want until you check the sales and then plan your menus around the sales and your coupons.. ugh I don't know if I can do that, but I WANT TO BE AN EXTREME COUPONER!! Conundrum. Oh wait and the other side to it is let's say I save $10 a shopping trip- which isn't a lot- I would save like $500 a year. That's awesome.So yeah.. sorry for the rambles. Does anyone have any couponing advice? Also- I need a Hunt's coupon- anyone know where they are??
