Tally of an Extreme(ly routine) Couponer!

So often I’m asked if I’m an Extreme Couponer and my answer is always a resounding (and slightly defensive) NO!  And equally as often, I’m asked if I actually save anything with coupons, to which I confidently (yet still somehow defensively) reply YES!  And to show just how un-extreme, yet extremely worth it it is for me to use coupons, I’m committing to keeping a tally of my coupons used and total savings for the month of October so folks can judge the savings for themselves.  Drop a line if you’d like to find some of these coupons too – I’d be happy to pass on the scoop on where I got them and whether or not they’re still available.

Day 1 – 12 coupons used for $13.96 in savings

I can’t even hazard a guess as to how much I’ll save this month.  I don’t shop every day, nor do I use coupons each time I shop.  I’m going to take a stab:  $125 in savings this month.  Let’s see how close I am!

Happy Couponing!
