I am all about shopping for deals and bargains!!! Nothing is better than finding something that you want and/or need and KNOW that you only payed a small fraction of the price! As a matter of fact, I enjoy the hunt more than I enjoy the savings!!! Shopping and Saving is my natural happy meds!!!
The savings are a great bonus in my shopping and couponing!!! As for stockpiling, I do not do that for a couple of reasons! The first reason is I don’t have the room to do it! The second reason is I am not committed to spending the time it takes to be so extreme! I also only commit about an hour or two to couponing a week. I can save money and shop smart, but I don’t have to hours to spend like the “extreme couponers” that you have recently seen on TV. I know that I would be able do that type of shopping if I devoted the time it took!
I only purchase one paper a week and at times I get my parents papers since they don’t use their coupons. I also only shop for what I need. So my binder is organized by category first, then by store, then I have a section of the stuff that is on every grocery list! Learn how I organize my coupon binder by clicking here.
Feel free to comment below on how you stockpile and save? Are you extreme?
If we are chatting during Extreme Couponing tonight I will be sure to post it on my fb page! Feel free to join me!
