They Call Me The Frugal Coupon Queen
Sunday, May 24, 2009
They call me the Frugal Coupon Queen of my area of the USA in Minnesota that is unofficially. I know I don't use what society calls normal stores. I use dollar stores almost all the time KMart, and Walgreens sometimes, and WalMart seldom. If, I do use KMart, Walgreens, and WalMart I use coupons. Frugal T thats what they call me. You can use coupons from fliers in any store that has fliers. I like Family Dollar stores. They have fliers and use manufactured coupons too. I have cut coupons for a long time before the Internet, and now I get coupons On-line. Family Dollar has a website that has them sometimes. The one an hour from me really likes my business. I am word of mouth business for them. The store clerks always call me Coupon Queen, or Frugal Queen of Minnesota.I guess it is a compliment. Our Christmas gifts are from there. Coupons is what I use year around there for gifts and food. I cook from scratch too. I have recipes that I get from the Dollar Stretcher and Tightwad community. I now know that struggling is going to always be in our future, unless we win the lotto, so I utilize the stuff like you would not believe. Try Tightwad Tess website as well. I recently found it On-line, and I thought it was cool to know someone else is nicknamed tightwad too.
I got an MP3 player for $20 dollars last week at the Family Dollar. It is much cheaper than most places in town for that electronic stuff. Cabbage Patch Kids can be had there for $20 dollars too, if you are lucky enough to find them there. A $100 dollars goes a long way at the Family Dollar Store enough to get all my family birthday gifts and Christmas gifts during the year, and bring home supper, and breakfast too. We have a lot of fun shopping there. I shop the Dollar store in every town that has one. Backus, MN just had Backus Days, and they are about 400 if less population. The town has a Family Dollar Store. We got picnic supplies from there one day last year.
What you can get at the Family Dollar. Here is a short list:
- Tide Laundry Soap-$3
- Silverware four for a $1
- Purina Cat Chow-$4
- Tampax $3
- Chips $1
- Dinty Moore Stew $2
- Crackers $1.50
- Macaroni and Cheese $.79
- Liquorice $1
- Plastic, and Paper Cups $1
- Coca Cola 2 liters $1.09
There is a whole lot more I could say about what is in the store this is a very partial list, and I haven't even gotten to the boys toys like Spiderman stuff for $5. Well that is why I am called the Frugal Coupon Queen by some. I know where to stretch my dollar, and save money with coupons. Bye again from Frugal and Tightwad Tanya also known as the Frugal Coupon Queen to some aka Frugal T.

I get stuff (mostly canned food) from Big Lots cheaper than I would from a regular store using coupons. Just an FYI for you.

Hey guys, as lunchtime is quickly approaching, I'm starting to crave Dairy Queen. I was just wanting to know if anyone has found coupons so I can get my meal cheaper.
