My husband saw this show for the first time ever this weekend... now he wants to coupon... but guess who gets to do all the work/searching for coupons? Yep. Me. YAY!!
I tried the couponing thing but always seem to leave my coupon booklet at home. its hard work but very rewarding.. Good Luck!!
It's just not worth the hassle, in my opinion. I hate grocery shopping as it is though, if I added something like this on top of it I may never go, haha.
I have tried in the past and he was super incredulous about it, but now that he has seen these people with grocery stores in their houses because of their couponing obsession, he thinks we should try to do it more. I am all for doing it moderately on things we use a lot of, like diapers, wipes, cleaning supplies, etc. But most of the food is junk food or processed and pre packaged stuff which I try to stay away from. Since it's slow at work today I am just flipping through coupons online and printing ones we might use... We don't get the newspaper so I am not clipping those coupons, if all it requires is a click and print, that I can handle. hahahaha
absolutly agree! it's my way of thinking
I am on the bandwagon of hating grocery shopping already, especially with a toddler. It's hard enough to get through the store without having to make sure I have exactly the right items in my cart and then having to argue with the cashier over whether they accept the coupons. I am kind of hoping that this trip with coupons is such a disaster my husband chooses to drop it, like we always have in the past!
Lol... i was all for it at first but its so much work.. organizing and planning is a job itself... being a Chef I love grocery shopping but the couponing makes it frustrating.. but like you said its great for diapers and toiletries.
On the show, one lady said she works full time and spends an additional 30 hours a week couponing... I looked at my husband and said "Clearly she doesn't have children"... she didn't.
