I am more than willing to admit it....I am not new to clipping coupons since I would cut them out and say I was going to use them and end up throwing them out 6 months later after they expired and never using them. After watching the show "Extreme Couponing" I have gone into Coupon Mode and now I use them every day that I go into a store. I don't have a stockpile, or even "stock" just yet.....and I dont need to go extreme, however having a small stash of things we need and will use for about 4-6 months ahead is my idea so that being a full time mom with 3 kids, if I run out of something I dont have to run out the next day or that day to get more. I dont have this figured out just yet though, I have read a few blogs, watched some of the shows over and over, signed up with a few coupon sites and started printing some online coupons and now started searching my local shops. I think I am on the right track anyway. If you use coupons....or are an "extreme" couponer, do you have any tips on how to get started?? Maybe some tips to get me in the right direction... I could get hooked very easy and go extreme --which in the case of saving money, getting things for free, and have a stockpile is not a bad thing for families now a day. I am a full time mom of 3, my oldest is in school and with holidays and birthdays I need to find a way to save and get ahead. Thanks for any tips you can give!!!! I will appreciate them all!!!!
