Back to Coupons!!
Tuesday, June 03, 2008
Ar one point, years ago, I was really into coupons & got all excited about saving $10 on my grocery bills! But over the years, I have turned to other frugal outlets and let the coupon clipping slip. Today, however, I sat down and took a good look at the coupons from the Sunday newspaper. And I realized that there were items there that I did buy. So I am getting serious again. Every $1 saved counts...
There was $1 off Olay products & I will need some more of that - coupons for Nature Maid vitamins, which I use (they also have their own discount program at www.naturemaid.com, which I recommend!) and surprisingly a $1 off Hylands Calms Forte - which is a locally made homeopathic remedy great for a good night's sleep! (& that coupon is good until September, so I will surely get to use it!)
There are also lots of fast food coupons for Arby's (I joined their online posse at www.arbys.com) and for Carl's Jr., - both of which are right in my neighborhood - as well as deals on BaskinRobbins ice cream - also down the street. The plan is to get some takeout and then picnic in the park. We all have been working hard lately, so that's a welcome respite. (and my allergies seem to have calmed down, too, so I can enjoy the great outdoors.)
What with the crazy price fluctuations, I realize I will have to go back to being even more vigilant! And better plan my/our shopping trips. I think I am going to encourage my husband to go to another local supermarket chain, which has lower prices over all. We just had some steaks from there, and they were marvellous and affordable!
There are also free samples at www.naturemade.com right now - go and check it out. They always have really good 2 for one deals on their products, too.
It's like freebies, a nice side of capitalism - so why not get your use out of them. It's the only way I really go to fast food places - on their coupons!
I still am wary of paying brand name prices for products I can get elsewhere - but if I am careful, even I will be able to save a little clipping coupons.
