Super Couponing

In an effort to make myself a contributing member of this family, I decided to take a couponing class.

First of all, let me just say that I HATE coupons. I think they are a pain in the butt and not worth my time. But, now I have time. So why not? Everyone needs a hobby (besides peeing on expensive sticks).

So, I took the class, made a binder, printed off some coupons, and headed to Target to test it out. My husband was pretty embarrassed of me and my binder, but oh well. I didn't even dry my hair today so who am I trying to impress?

I can see already that this is going to take some getting used to. I mostly wandered around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to find everything.

But in the end, I got 2 items for better than free. That's right, I actually got paid .04 toward my purchase. And I saved $9.21 on $25 worth of groceries that we needed anyway.

I have a tendency to become obsessed with things, and I can already see that happening here. I understand how people become addicted.

I'm going to start off slowly and focus on things we actually need. I would like to have a small stockpile of things like toilet paper, body wash, deodorant, etc. And now that we made room in the basement, I actually have some available storage. So we'll see how it goes.

Hey, maybe I can find some coupons for pee sticks and combine my two hobbies!

Target paid me .04 to take these two things out of their store.

    I really appreciate your comments on my blog - thanks so much! I can't say I understand infertility as well as you do, but I'm glad we do get each other. Thanks for following :)
