Learning to Coupon? I am!

Yes, I am a newbie and this is my newest form (for myself and family) of being Thrifty!  This also allows me not to toss those coupons..but use them and recycle the rest.  Also, "every penny saved is a penny earned!"

I discovered this wonderful site to help me learn and it is 100% free information.  Some folks are shamelessly selling this exact information but I am here to let you know that it is FREE here at: We Use Coupons !   This is an excellent resource for a newbie or someone experienced....all can come together and share tips.  It is an online community forum!  All couponers can benefit!  They have free tips, virtual classes (all levels) and articles to get you started.  You can find them on Facebook also.

If you are interested in coupons...this is a superior starting point! Don't PAY for what you can get for FREE!  :-)

Savvy Shopper Mom: GREAT blog for Coupon Savings!

I just checked out this awesome blog! I plan to frequent it and so should anyone that wishes to save and grab up some great name brand coupons of items you use regularly!  I am soo excited about giving Couponing a serious try....and this blog is an excellent resource!

Share any couponing tips you have here in the "comment jar!"

Melanie (new couponer...I have to try or I would be a hypocrite for calling myself "Thrifty!")  Can't believe it is just now something I am going to try...shame on me!  I have always cut coupons for supplies etc...but let it slip by me the potential of savings plus couponing for maximum NOT using cash out of my pocket!  Better late than never!

Extreme Couponing

I am really excited about "Extreme Couponing!"  I just started watching this show last night.  Now I have it DVRed to learn more about it!

I hope to give updates in the coming months on what I figure out from this show on couponing.  I will be honest, I do not think I have the time and patience it takes to plan out a shopping trip, but I am willing to learn all I can to pass it on!

I am excited!  It comes on TLC channel if you don't already watch it.  Check it out!

Have a great rest of May!  :-)
