    This is our plan too. Nature's milk factories I like the idea Celeste...I will be using that in the near future..."sorry dear I can't, I have to feed the baby here remember?" muwahahahaha

    I've never used a coupon in my life. It seems that when I see them in the grocery store it's for things I don't want or need, so I'd be spending more money by using them.
    I guess I need to look into it more.

    Fulford try this site Canadian Coupons - Online Coupons, In-store Coupons, Grocery Coupons & Canada Shopping Coupons

    I hear you about living in a $$$ town. Oh ski town living, how I will not miss the! I use the coupon off there for my vitamins, $2 off and I buy 4 bottles when it comes on sale (cruise the flyers). On average it saves me $5 a bottle or $60 a year on just one thing.

    I also have coop membership and just before christmas they had a deal with pop spend $20 and get a $20 fuel card.

    The trick is to combine the coupon with the in store sale. An additional sticky point is that when you DO find a deal that's great, you get enough of your item so that you don't have to spend full price before the next sale.

    Alex, I know you could definitely use the savings in the grocery department!!!!! You should definitely check it out!

    Again guys, just a reminder, you don't have to HOARD. Keep a decent amount of stash for yourself and your immediate family...and give some to others in need that you know...or donate it.

    I'm definitely going to start couponing once I get my spring cleaning and my cupboards done. I'll definitely need all the room I can get for my future savings stash.

    I try to print coupons but I can only do it at school as I don't have a printer. Im trying to get better at using coupons, but I don't have patience with it....but my horses make me poor so I need to keep trying.

    Thanks for all the tips in this thread !

    haha, no problem...Patience is definitely an acquired trait for me!!!!!!

    One thing I wish...I wish there were more coupons for horse stuff...or any for that matter! I figure if I save money with couponing, I can afford more cool stuff at the tack auction with less complaining from my husband! ;)


    As for the printer....one tip I've seen a lot? Get one off of Craigslist....or even your local Freecycle. One lady I was reading about got a super office printer that way with tons of ink left! =)
