I am not a super mom. I’m not super organized, nor do I claim to be perfect in anyway. I’m normal (or close to it).
I’m also obsessive on saving money and I spend too much time on the computer some days. Okay, most days.
I stalk price match up sites starting about Thursday, to see what deals are going on for the following week. And I start making a list, and I review the current went to see if there is anything I just have to have.
I print my list and go pull all my coupons from my binder that are organized by category and I put them in their respective zip pouch (yes obsessive). So I know this store gets these coupons and this store gets these coupons. And did I mention I also print individual lists for each store and place them in the coupons?
If I’m going to be traveling around a town with several of the same store and I want a lot of the same deal, I will put paper clips around my little bundles of coupons too, so I know those are each shopping trip.
As soon as I get in the store, I grab a flier too, to make sure I’ve got the right sized item to go with the coupons. I do not like making mistakes with my coupons.
I complete my purchase and exit the store, putting my purchase in the car, taking my receipt to my seat.
When I look at the receipt and see how much I saved and how much I saved. And that is when I get my high.
I was the coupon today. I will be the coupon again at the next store too.
