I NEVER pay for items like toothpaste, toothbrushes, shaving cream, lotion or shavers (among many other things)! Imagine if all you did was cut these five items out of your budget!
The blessings of this hobby/lifestyle has allowed me to do the following just during my first two years of couponing alone:
◦ Create an Emergency Fund
◦ Pay off our car loan
◦ Pay for all our Christmas gifts
◦ Save enough to re-carpet our house
◦ Significantly increase our ability to give to friends and family in need
My hope is that my story will inspire you to give couponing a try this year. Even if all you do is one deal per week, I promise, it will be worth it!
