Ok, maybe not Queen just yet, but surely a jester of some sort. This is like baby stepping into the world of couponing- I am getting my feet wet. My friend Amber has a couponing blog giving awesome deals and updates. So after reading said updates I went to Walgreens, met the nicest woman who wasn't even on the clock yet and she helped me venture around the store and learn a few tricks.
I partook in the showergel offer. I bought the first one originally 3.99-I used a printable $1 off coupon, got it for 2.99 and then received register rewards and got the next one for .34! Not bad for me anyhow- this is a rolling kind of deal- you could buy shower gel all week for .34-the tax. That's it!
I also got 80 Pampers Swaddlers diapers for $8.
So I didn't make out like a bandit- but I did ok- I'm sort of getting this- once I combine printables and the sunday paper coupons, ect ect. I will feel like I have more of a handle on this.
Also, a hard thing for me to get used to is that I'm used to buying the specific brand of whatever I want whenever I need/want it. I need to train my brain to stock up on sales, and use what is available. I also need to master buying food and then EATING/COOKING at home. I need to re-train my brain in this area as well.
But for now I will celebrate my small victory- baby steps...
