I have been couponing for the last two years, but it is on and off. I did not have the time to clip coupons and my priorities got shifted to my school aside from taking care of the kids. It is really a shame that I have the coupons at home and I can’t bring it to the store to use. If I do it religiously, I could have saved a lot already. Now that my school is over, I am starting to dig out my coupon binder. I know it will be like going to start from scratch.
The binder in picture was the binder I made back in 2010. Some of the coupons inside were all expired. I have some more inserts that are also expired and I will be throwing it away. I planned of sending it to my friend overseas, they’re in the military too, but I have to sort the ones that can still be used and those that should be tossed. I am still a newbie couponer and still has a lot to learn. I don’t mind learning and hopefully this time I can have the technique and can really maximize my savings using coupons.
I remember early last year when we shopped at the commissary, I brought my binder with me and had it spread on the shopping cart’s baby seat. While pushing the cart, there was this family with their 3 children. The kid, about 9-10 years old got so excited when she saw me flipping through my binder. She really came up to me and said, wow you’re a couponer just like what I saw on TV! She got so excited. I just smiled and said I am still far from them. I am still a beginner in couponing.
