Weekend Wrap Up: in one word or less

Jewelry.

Aaaaaand now we move on to extreme couponing.

Totally unrelated, but something that has been on my mind.

I love it.

I'm what you might call frugal-minded.

I enjoy the sport of finding a good deal.

So when TLC's Extreme Couponing show aired I was a bit more than intrigued.  And when I finally watched an episode I decided to throw my hat into the mega savings ring.

Except I have no idea how they do it.

Buy $1,200 in groceries and pay $44?  Yes please.

But how??

Dig through the garbage?  No, thank you.  Ask neighbors for their Sunday fliers?  Nuh-uh.  Scour the internets for deals?  Possibly, if I can find eight spare hours in my day.

A tad discouraged, I thought I could still be a moderate couponer and still see a pair of GAP sale jeans worth in savings.

So I started with a few of my own fliers and half an hour.

My success: bottle of Wisk, originally $7-something for $1.49.

Score!!

Except I don't use Wisk.

Eh.

That's my issue w/ coupons - I can't ever find ones for things I actually USE.

I wish I had time to be an extreme couponer, but I don't think I could hold down a job. Then I wouldn't have money, making it a moot exercise.

I'm afraid to get into couponing. I get addicted to activities too easily.
