I love the idea of couponing. I really do. The idea of showing up at the grocery store and saving tons of money? It sounds awesome!
But I am terrible at it. First off, I am a single woman. I just don’t use that much stuff. Secondly, I just don’t want to do it. The idea of spending hours clipping and planning? Not my style. I was doing okay at actually using coupons for a while, but then I got fed up with my newspaper delivery service and canceled my subscription.
Then yesterday, there was a great deal for a year of Sunday papers for $25. Not bad at all and definitely the best price I have seen in the area. So I grabbed it. My subscription should start in two to three weeks.
My couponing plan is to just clip the coupons for things I will use and perhaps things I can donate, if there is a great deal out there. I’m not brand loyal on cleaning products, so buying whatever is the best deal is the way to go. I figure that’s where I will find the most coupons. But I’m hoping to be able to restock my canned goods as well. I’m going to use a plastic coupon organizer that I have laying around and try to make it work for me.
Because I love organizing products, I love the idea of a fancy coupon holder, preferably something adorable from etsy. But buying something for my coupons defeats the purpose of couponing at this point!
