I love using coupons. I especially love using coupons when I am buying an item that is already on sale. The problem is, I do not have a ton of time to devote to couponing, in fact, I have completely ignored all of the extreme couponing shows because they will only get me fired-up to taking my thriftiness to a whole new level that I just do not have time for.
Having my young ladies in the house, I do have some pretty standard weekly staples that I include into my budget. One is for them: Simply GoGurt & One is for me: Coffee. And when I say Coffee...I mean fancy coffee. I don't like your standard coffee (such as a regular brick of coffee, or even a can of coffee). I like a good grind the beans, let it brew, followed by an "I just stepped out of a Christmas Folger's commercial" cup of coffee. But with this expensive taste and the increasing cost of coffee, I feel better if I can get a deal on it.
There are always coupons for Simply Go-Gurt http://yoplait.com/SimplyGogurt/ which is both Mom-the-Dietitian & Kid approved. The ladies love it as an easy snack because it's fun to eat and it tastes good. I love it because it's a good dose of calcium & it is a healthy snack choice. And you can freeze it to trick the kids into thinking they are having "dessert". Whahaha!
Here are a few of my favorite coupon sites:
For those in the South: www.southernsavers.com : This site links the ads to the coupon match-ups. It's pretty much perfect. Sometimes you have to sign into a product site to get a coupon, but that works out because often they send you more coupons!
For every one else: www.couponsuzy.com and http://smartsource.com : Start saving now!
