I had some time today to do some matchups for the upcoming week and I thought I would like to talk about something that was asked of me today from my ex-sister-in-law(Still my family, J ) and I’m sure it’s a question that everybody has since the Extreme couponing show has aired on TLC and ready to air again soon. (There is a lady on weusecoupons.com that was chosen to be on that show that is coming up and the moderator of weusecoupons.com is the man who was on the last airing and we be on again this next one.) She asked me “HOW IN THE WORLD DO THEY DO IT?”
That show gets regular couponers so frustrated when they see those people saving all that money but the thing to remember is the reason we use coupons, it is to save money and any money saved is a WONDERFUL thing. Remember, it helps if you live in an area that has a GREAT grocery store that doubles or even has great sales. We are lucky enough to have several stores in the area that have great sales but unfortunately they do not double unless you want to drive 30 miles or so to Wiseway, but is it really worth it by the time you spend the money in gas to get there? Of course if you work that way, or up that way, it might pay you to stop in and give them a shot, but I try not to drive to far for the deals because if I’m going to get 3 free things from Target but pay $15.00 in gas to get there, are they really FREE? Just something to ponder.
In the matchups I will show you that it is possible to get FREE items at your local store if you watch the ads, keep your coupons and keep track of when the lowest possible deal is going to come around.
