Coupon Class

A month or two ago Cindy brought up the idea of having a coupon class at church.  She suggested that Kelli & I teach the ladies that came how we use our coupons, where we get them, ect.
The coupon class ended up being held on Saturday (right during Kobe's last b-ball game, I wasn't too thrilled about that) and we did end up having a lot of fun.
Most of the ladies in the class were new to couponing but Bernadette is a coupon master mind!  She has a binder full of organized coupons that would make your mind spin!  I loved having her in class, she knew of a few websites I had never heard of ( www.refundcents.com (rebate website) & mambosprouts.com (organic))

Kelli has helped me to get more into buying coupons off of ebay effectively and that has been fun too!  If you want to see what I have been up to you can check it out over at gooddealsorfree.blogspot.com!

How fun, and what a great idea! :) I have given up on coupons - I know.... I am a horrible person....lol I just found for me I was saving more money by doing one of the grocery store's sales each week. I have been only spending about 40 a week so I tought that was pretty good!

Lindsay said...

Oh yeah and by giving up on coupons I mean I have stopped buying a newspaper. I just print off coupons online that I can use instead.

Very cool! That is great, Leah! I wish I could come to your class. I love learning how to save more money!!! I love coupons, and have become quite the addict to matching them with sales:). What a great thing!

$40 a week is really good Lindsay, as far as coupons go, I think everyone has to do what works for them! (your $10 ECBs expiring pushed you over the edge didn't it lol j/k)

i do the same thing, alyssa, I just match my coupons up to sales and buy what I want! I am def. not as hard core as some of the people I have been meeting lately but I enjoying learning from them and adding to what works for me!

Alyssa and Leah... I do the same thing with my coupons and I love it!! lol Today, I went to Kroger and spent $51.17 and saved $58.93!! I was happy with that, but I did think it would of been a little less $!! I did get a ton of stuff so...it was good shopping trip to Kroger!!
