Coupon Counting

I love spending money, but not nearly as much as I love saving it.  Joel and I love Dave Ramsey's financial philosophies and are working toward becoming debt-free.  I can't wait to be debt-free.  But we're not there yet and right now I'm just trying to save money in any way that I can.

One very easy and painless way to save money and keep the budget tighty is to coupon and utilize savings that stores offer.  I get the weekend paper just so that I can have the coupons and I subscribe to business emails just so I can get exclusive savings and coupons.

I really want to see exactly how much I save by clipping coupons and using store offers.  So, I decided for the month of August that I would track every coupon and offer I use.  I would love for you to join me!

I started tracking today and saved $8.50 at Babies 'R Us just using coupons! 

Happy couponing.

A great place to check is www.slickdeals.net , there are a lot of deal spottings on there along with coupon codes for online purchases.

I forgot to add www.woot.com (which has multiple sister sites like sellout.woot.com, they are shown on the main page of woot. But anyways this site has one deal-a-day and when it's sold out they sell nothing more, Unless there is a woot off and thats when something sells out they move on to another product. It is updated @ 1am. Oh and shipping is always $5 no matter if its a toy for the kids or a 55" plasma.

CSPURGEON - Thanks so much for the tips! I know my knowledge base of online deal-sites is pretty limited, so I'll have to check these out soon. I love the sound of a woot-off, by the way.

My mom always used to cut out all the coupons for things she wanted then keep them till they went on sale and then its even cheaper!
