Could This be Getting … Extreme?!

Today is day 2 of keeping a tally of the number of coupons I use in a month and I’ve already hit the half-way mark of my monthly savings prediction.  Whoops!  I think I had “groceries” on my mind, and hadn’t considered the high value coupons that I often redeem for household items and personal care.  And today’s Customer Appreciation event at Shoppers Drug Mart resulted in a whole lotta savings:  savings that are all part of our strategy to permit me to stay home with the kids as a Save-at-Home-Mom!  You can read all about my trip to Shoppers Drug Mart in my post on Canadian Coupons.

Day 1 – 12 coupons used for $13.96 in savings

Day 2 – 13 coupons used for $62.85 in savings

Month to date:  $76.81 saved by using coupons

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.

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!
