This sounds so interesting. I can't wait to see how much you girls save.

I clipped coupons last week for the first time in forever and saved $9! I was so excited!!

Is this for the US only or can Canadians use it too?

 

I use coupons, but it only ever saves me a few dollars, I don't understand how you guys say you can save 60-90%, or how you can get 30$ worth of stuff for 1$! That is just nuts! The best I do is when cereal is on sale for like 2$ a box, and sometimes there will be coupons for 1$ off per box (either right there, or coupons I have saved from another time) and so I get cereal at 1$ a box and I get so excited. But we're talking like once a year this happens :) Also there is some stuff I never pay full price for, I always stock up when it's on sale (canned soft drinks, canned foods, cereal, pasta, etc) but still that stuff will be at most half price when it's on sale. I don't understand how you guys are saving so much money on so much stuff! I thought I was cheap (my husband calls me the Bargain Hunter) but I obviously have some stuff to learn from you girls!

Its really easy to save a lot at CVS... You basically combine their instant rebate type promotions (Extra Bucks) with manufacture coupons and store coupons and then "roll" the "extra bucks" you made from previous purchases and keep on doing it over and over again. It takes some time to get a hang of it, but I will never need to buy things like toilet paper, toothpaste, shampoo, pain relievers and other stuff again.

i really dont use too many coupons- and i just take the coupon section out of the paper and just throw it in the file. when the weekly list is posted it tells you where to find any corresponding coupons- so i only cut the ones i know i am going to use

Okay, so I looked into this, but I have to say that I'm still VERY skeptical. lol You say you don't use very many coupons, but isn't that how you get your savings? I'm just confused! smile105.gif

 

Reading through that site it seemed like they just tell you where to get the coupons for everything, then it's up to you to search them out and cut them. Then, once you find them, you go to the store-making sure you read the fine print (i.e. you have to buy two to get the discount, etc.)-and then have to hand over a fistful of coupons when checking out?

 

Okay, it's gotta be easier then that if you're so excited about it!fryingpan.gifWhat am I missing? LOL

Ok so I thought you got all the appropriate coupons emailed to you and you printed them. Where I got that idea I have no clue??

 

I don't get the paper either so getting the coupons wouldn't be to easy for me.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
