Scooby Snack~Tip of the Day! Clicking coupons! March 19, 2010

Filed under: Juicy Little Mommy Tidbits,Scooby Snack~Tip of the Day — Janine Chance @ 7:12 am

Ok, I have to admit it…I DON’T CLIP COUPONS! As much of a cheapo as I am, I just haven’t ever taken the time to clip coupons. I did when I was first married, you know, because it makes you feel all domesticated and wifey…and when I got pregnant and put on bed rest, I clipped coupons like crazy then because there wasn’t a whole lot to do flat on your back.

Then my first daughter came…along with 3 months of colic. Needless to say, I stopped clipping coupons.

Anyway, I was on Facebook last night, (shocker) and my friend Grace was going on about her awesome grocery shopping day and how she spent $69.00 instead of $200.00 because of coupons…WHAT??!! She talked about these great websites that she goes to get all of her coupons. I thought, yeah, after you fill out an hour-long survey and promise your first-born child. So, I went and checked it out. HELLO!!! It was click and clip baby! I went nuts! I got coupons for everything but Ensure and Centrum Silver! I now feel guilty at the thought of not ‘clicking’ coupons! If you are more coupon savvy than me and already know about these sites, great, I must be a little behind the coupon times, but for those of you in the coupon dark ages like me, here ya’ go!

    Sooooo funny that you posted this today!! I just came fom shopping with all my coupons. I LOVE LOVE LOVE coupons and turn it into a game!! Today with sales I matched up coupons and got dish soap for 29 cents, Ajax laundry detergent for 77 cents, a toothbrush for 66 cents, 10 yogurts @ 34 cents each and Loreal kids shampoo for 49 cents!!!! Talk about fun in the store!! It helps that shop rite doubles coupons 🙂

  2. I was thrilled to hear about these sites because I don’t live in an area with super sweet grocery stores with deals like that. I think coupon ‘clicking’ may become a new found hobby!

    I feel too scattered and ADHD to clip coupons, but I’m always happy to hear it works for others. If I had a personal shopper, I’d make her do it!

    It costs a little, but she tells you where to find the coupons and where to use them to get the best bang for your buck. They paid me to take Gain detergent one time…..
