Crazy Coupon Lady

A friend of mine from church invited me to a Coupon Party. I decided to go and check it out since my husband already makes fun of me b/c I always pull some kind of coupon or discount out of my purse when we go to dinner or shopping, so it made sense to him that I’d go.

There was about 20 of us that showed up and the lady lays out all these products on the table and asked what did we think they retailed for? We all murmured some answers and it was about $65. Then she asked how much could we get them if they were on sale? The answer was $43. Then she asked us to guess how much she got them for? $14!!! Are you kidding me? It was all name brand stuff like diapers, detergent, deodorant, toothpaste, etc.

She showed us how to find coupons, how to use coupons, how to use coupons with sales, how to use coupons with rebates, how to do buy 1 get one free and get everything free. It almost seems too good to be true!

I decided I’d try it out… if she went from $600 a month on groceries and household supplies and now only pays $250, its worth the organization time to me. I told myself I’d do it for 3 months before I decided if I like it or not.

I have 4 coupons that I found out the products are on sale at Smiths this week. I am going to head there after work. If things go as planned, I should get all my items for FREE! Yay!

I ended up messing up the soup part (you had to buy 10 to get them at 50cents instead of just 3.) but I got razors and a toothbrush for free!
