Technology. And saving money. Think about it. I am completely wowed by how technology has changed the way we shop. And I'm only 23! It all boils down to word-of-mouth. I guess my mom and grandma saved money by their friends telling them "Bananas on sale at the Piggly Wiggly!" Now we have a complete abundance of money-saving resources available! I don't mean for this website to be a "top" resource for all the deals, coupon match-ups, etc, but rather a journal of my savings to show you how I am livin' thrifty. So, I'd like to share my favorite finds for finding the BEST coupon match up websites, freebie resources, etc.
Hopping on the couponing train can be overwhelming. I've learned that a lot of the coupon match-ups sometimes overlap, leave out deals that others catch, etc. You've got to find what works for you. I like to scan a few or target some for weeks when I'm in need of groceries, or toiletries, etc! The rule I've learned to couponing is STOCKPILE! I'm not talkin for nuclear war, I mean who needs 25 bottles of shampoo? But if it's free with coupons, get it. Have a system to organize your extras! Check these guys out and enjoy!
