    Another thing guys...it's actually probably BEST if you want to save money...to only go to the store once or twice max!! You plan it out in advance, use your coupons...and then you aren't tempted to keep going throughout the week to spend your cash!


    Anyway for ease of understanding, that's why I recommended the Krazy Coupon Lady site....she has a whole SECTION for beginners, where to start and how to get going.

    There's also a check mark box next to each "deal " item...click it if you want it! THEN you can print a whole list at once! No need to write stuff down, they found the deals for you, and even typed it up for you too =)

    Do you ever run into places that don't accept coupons?

    I filled out a shoppers survey a few years back and got a bunch of free trials so do it every year now just for free trial products. I get a ton of coupons with it but never know where takes them and feel like a dummy going places to be declined to use them for whatever reason haha.

    I am pretty sure places like Sam's Club only take their own coupons, but that's ok...I haven't shopped there since I started couponing! And don't feel like a dummy...You're saving MONEY! And the store is getting compensated full price for accepting your coupon!

    I imagine the local mom & pop might not accept coupons? But everywhere else I've been has been fine. I won't be shopping Dollar Tree anymore with coupons because it's a PITA, but everywhere else has been fine.

    As for babies, couponing is WONDERFUL!!!! I'm hoping to have another one, and I've already found a couple small things that were so well priced that I couldn't resist! Free bottle nipples for when the hubby feeds the baby at night? Yes please!

    I would love to coupon, but I don't want to stock pile unnecessary items. For instance, I only go through maybe a few bottles of body wash a year, a few tubes of toothpaste, and a handful of deodorant sticks, etc. It seems like toiletries are always the sale items that couponers stock up on. How do you save money while avoiding hoarding things you don't need?

    Toothpaste and deoderant are no longer all that cheap! I have a family of four...I have more than enough for the next two years. If you don't want to hoard...

    Most people DONATE their extras to a church, Domestic Violence home, homeless shelter, etc. ;)

    You don't *have* to hoard anything to save money!!! And if it's free, and you have more than what you need, why not get it and give it to someone less fortunate???

    I saved even more money when I fed my babies. I used natures ready made milk factories. (Breast feeding) I lost tons of weight that I desperately need to lose just from the milk production. As far as hubby feeding the baby, that didn't work out. It was still a great excuse to get out of work. "I can't help you do that darling. I'm feeding the baby."

    Haha, yeah I saved money with Mother Nature too...I probably make enough milk for twins AT LEAST...so I usually put a ton in the fridge/freezer...hubby is more than welcome to do his fair share at night. Of course, I had the excuse that I was a full time on campus student again 2 weeks after my son was born...;)
