The other day we had to get a digital cable adaptor (luckily it was free) to keep our TV working and for one night we got a whole slew of channels that we don’t normally get. One of the channels that came in was TLC and it must have been my lucky night because there were 4 episodes on in a row of Extreme Couponing (see this related post). I’ve never been into the idea of couponing until I heard the concept for this show.
Now, I think about couponing differently. Now it feels exciting! Before it just seemed tedious and time-consuming.
Time or money. Time or money, right? Gonna spend one or the other.
Last Wednesday the coupon/mailer/promotionals/junk mail appeared in my mailbox (like they do every Wednesday) and this time when I saw them I didn’t automatically throw the thin slips of paper straight into the recycling bin. This time I looked through them. And guess what I found!? A coupon for a free soft serve ice cream cone. Not that I ever go to Burger King but someone could use it! Then, I found another one this week!
On a shamelessly frugal note… I even rummaged through the trash can by the mailbox where everyone else throws their junk mail to look for more of these ice cream coupons and didn’t find any.
Two free cones, and snow outside. Go coupons! I mean, GO Freebies!
I’m thinking about getting a subscription to the Sunday paper for the coupons.
Do you clip coupons? Where do you get your coupons? Do you think getting a subscription for the Sunday paper is worth it? Do you have any tips for beginners and has your biggest score been?
