(a glimpse of our little world)
While we are no where near the level we would like to be, in terms of our ‘frugality’, we are definitely making changes for the better.
I began couponing seriously in 2010, and although I am not an “Extreme Couponer”, I am amazed at how much money couponing has saved us. I now look for sales when using coupons in order to obtain the best deals. Coupons are now being used for all parts of our lives: groceries, dining, gas, etc.
I’m learning all about stockpiling when a price is great. While I’m not a huge cook, I’m trying to change my meal planning so that I use ingredients that were inexpensive, rather than running out to the store to buy what I need to make a meal that I decided on at the last minute.
This is all new to me, but I am enjoying the process. It is a good feeling knowing that I am being much more responsible with what I have been given!
