First coupon!

Hello again!
Last night, I went to the local family dollar to pick up one gain using my $3/1 coupon (my husband’s friend had a leftover $3/1 gain coupon =D and gave it to him) So in I went, walked to the back, found the 3$ gain (last one left, really the only gain left o.o;;) and grabbed it. I put it down on the register table and said I have a coupon, the moment the cashier saw it was $3/1, she was all like, “how did you get this?” .. “did you make this?” and she kept giving me the evil eye. I was like .. shocked .. however my husband who was with me, was like .. “I couldn’t make a fake coupon that well” and after she just stood there for a few moment s, she turned and then finally scanned it. After she had already scanned the coupon and it went though, my husband said jokingly “see it scanned, cant be a fake.” But the cashier didn’t look very happy and when she said my total was .28cents she had a major attitude. So my very first time using a coupon I have this happen, LOL, just my luck .. wont stop me though! I really got a high outta getting that deal! My husband said after we left and was walking to the car, that she was just jealous that she couldn’t save money like I just did, lmao!
So even though my first time was a little more stressing that I would have truly liked, it didn’t change the fact that I truly loved saving those 3 dollars! And i wish I had more of those coupons! LOL! I can’t wait till I’m a binder-having coupon having money saving queen!
BTW lol, on the binder topic! I’m starting to build it. I bought some baseball card holders at target (one of the only stores in my area that had them and had them 2 dollars cheaper! THANK YOU TARGET lol) However they didn’t have a zipper binder so I’m going to try staples or office max. Also I need PLASTIC tab dividers (was told by a awesome blog writer in her blog) that those were the best type to get. This site is awesome btw .. I’m totally addicted!

I also need a pencil holder with metal rings to hold my pen, scissors (which is also need) and a calculator (again I also need), however I have a iPhone, so I could just use that. The baseball card holders were 4.99 each and I got 4 packs! I KNOW .. I KNOW .. I’m just starting out (why do I need so many?!), but what we both of us thought, they only had the 4 left and no one else in the area, other than the higher price, had them, get them while we could for 2 dollars cheaper!

First Find!

Hello again,
So last night/this morning. I went looking though the Sunday paper. I found some pretty OK coupons .. nothing really to go crazy about. But then I grabbed the ads. And there was my first coupon that a matched ad that = free. So I know what your thinking right “?!” < that was my first thought too! lol ~ But its at a drug store, and its one of those programs where you spend money and you make a in-store type credit. But with the item being 2.99 and then the store credit being -2.00 (or +2.oo in-store money) and my coupon being -1.00 = .01 cent back! (w00t) so basically free! So my very first item is free (toothpaste, if your wondering) lol! Pretty excited! But I still have fears, like OK ~ I do this (w00t) get x4 (limit of 4 boxes) boxes of free toothpaste (first stockpile item yayx2) but what if the in-store credit runs out before I use it … then I’ve bought toothpaste we normally don’t even get and spent money we didn’t have and wasted. But! As sadly as it is .. sometimes you DO have to spend a little to make a little. And if push comes to shove, I can always run to the drug store and get some toilet paper with the in-store credit lol. I just hope as the months fly by (and these days they do fly) I start to really get this couponing and start really saving a ton of money!

Hiya~!

Hello and welcome!
This is my first blog ever! How exciting huh?!! Lol. Well, I thought so anyways! =P
Earlier this week, I saw a show on TLC called Extreme Couponing.
Basically these people had grocery bill that came out to be hundreds of dollars (and one guy almost 6 grand) and walked way spending a few dollars. =O I know right?!
So i thought?!
If they can do it .. well!! So can I (and you! yes you!! reading this right now!)~ after spending a few days looking online and signing up for every coupon site and forum I could find.
I thought how fun would it be to blog about my progress!
So here we are!
I am hoping for lots and lots of savings!
Till next time,
