When I talk to people about my love of couponing we sometimes get asked if it is really worth it. My answer? Without a doubt…YES!
Another common quesiton is if we are getting things we really need or just a bunch of junk food. My answer to that is, if your family does things like showering, eating food and cleaning the house…yes coupons are for items that you do need and do buy on a regular basis.
One of the things that stood out to me the most when I first started looking into couponing myself were the pictures that I saw of shopping trips, so I wanted to share a few of my trips that I had during my first six months of couponing. I hope this will help to debunk the “coupons are only for junk food” myth and motivate you to keep moving forward on your money saving journey.
