Money is tight folks and so the answer for this girl is "YES". This time of year can be a real challenge in the pocketbook. While my husband works for our RV spot in the winter time (this winter so far is a test run and we hope to come back to this winter work location after our summer work in ID), I work on a retainer and receive my paycheck every 4 months (ugg but it's all good) and so in between I try to find ways of saving.
While Boondocking (that's camping with NO hook-ups) I really couldn't do the whole coupon thing because being in the middle of now where works against us. If we drive to town just for the Sunday paper it will cost us gas money and so the coupon savings would be a joke. We could ride our bikes for sure but doing 30-40 miles to town would just kill the legs, the lungs, and my spirits. Print coupons on-line "NO WAY" not on a 500 watt generator (don't worry we are about to get the deal of a life time on better one that is a 3500 watt).
While we are now getting hook-ups now, I am back to being a coupon freak. I have a secret to share with you. I am going to tell you about a web site that will help you save so much money (I don't belong anymore because I learned their tricks) - if you want me to share the trick go ahead and pay the RV donation fee and I will walk you through it. But the site that I learned all the tricks is found here http://www.thegrocerygame.com/ and they will give you a list of what's a good deal and such for a membership price. Worth the money but so is my experience and cheaper too!!
I love coupons and I clip them all... Well except for things I know I will not use like baby diapers and dentures cream (unless I can get it for free and then I will use the free items for future blog giveaways - hint hint one is coming up this week).
A typical Sunday is.... Jorge OMG get your butt to the store and get my paper. He is a crossword puzzle FREAK and so we both win. The Sunday paper is $2.50 and we get that back in savings just on the first page - but there are tricks and it takes work. Just like it takes work putting money in the saving account no difference except maybe a paper cut here and there...
