So after a very long break from "super couponing" as I will call it, I am back looking for deals again. Thanks to my friend Kristie for re-inspiring me (and for DVRing "extreme couponing" to get me motivated again).
This time I have set some rules for myself:
-Look for products you love and find them cheaper than normal
-Don't go for every free deal just because you can
-Buy stuff that you can use, or if you know someone else who can use it
-Don't pay money for products you won't use
Within these rules in mind, I will probably spend more than before, but I will actually use most of the stuff I buy too:)
Here is my "deal" trip to Walgreen's from Sunday.
