My best coupon savings year so far!
I've been clipping coupons for quite sometime. I always thought I did fairly well, averaging around $200 in savings a year. This year I started following some coupon and sales blogs and in January attended a coupon clkass by this one woman who has been on tv and several radio shows. Following her tips and those from the blogs, the entire year, I've done better and better with my couponing. I ended 2009 saving $748 in just coupons : manufacture and store coupons as well as CVS Extra Value Bucks and Walgreen's Register Rewards. I saved almost 4 times more in the 4th quarter of 2009 than I did in the first quarter of 2009, as well as more in the entire year of 2009 than I did the entire 3 previous years. Wow!!! If I keep it up, the same way this year I should save even more this year than last year. I wasn't going to keep track this year, but I think I will, plus I found a spreadsheet which will take only a minute or so to more to keep up.
