Couponing Thoughts...

So I never thought this day would come. I am going to be one of those "crazy coupon people... who has a coupon binder".

I previously filed inserts, and has a small CD case to keep my coupons organized in... But I've realized the past three months that method isn't as organized, and not being organized made me not want to coupon, and resulting in not saving money.

So here goes to tossing stereotypes out the window! ;) Now I am one of "them crazy coupon people" with a coupon binder! Eek!

Happy Saturday!

I had a good shopping week! Drugstore sales end tonight, and a brand new sale week starts tomorrow! Who's excited? Three newspaper inserts tomorrow (coupon value amounts vary by region).

My favorite haul from this past week's sales: six free nail polishes from Rite Aid! These will make cute gifts for some princesses and Tweens I know! ;)

No Drama Target Couponing Shopping Trip!

Let me say, I almost gave up on couponing at Target. Since moving, I have had nothing but negative experiences when couponing at my local Target. Today I woke up and said, hey, I'm gonna try again. Well... I was able to get the following loot for $3.17 after gift cards, coupons, and a lil extra 5% savings from my Target Red Debit Card! I'll jot down the deals when I'm at my computer. :) But for now, I'm doing the happy dance!

I had a little conversation with my grandmother today. She saves the coupons from the Sunday newspaper for me, but somehow or another I mentioned internet printable coupons. She found it so funny that you could print coupons from the internet. And it made me think about how coupons have changed over the years, and also, how she taught me to be frugal. And if you are not familiar with printing coupons, head on over to

My top 3 tips for printing coupons:
1) Print on draft quality. (Edit in printer preferences)
2) Print in grayscale, as often black ink is cheaper than color ink.
3) Reuse/recycle paper. :)
