Couponing for the Extremely Normal: I Won’t Pay Full Price

Welcome to Couponing for the Extremely Normal! My daughter decided she wants to play lacrosse this year.  Fortunately, her school received a grant and those players without sticks and goggles were given loaners for the season.  The only problem is she can't carry the lacrosse stick on the bus unless it's in a case.  I priced out carrying cases on the internet and learned it was going to cost about $30 to buy a new one.  Now lacrosse is something she is just trying out and I'm not going to spend … [Read more...]

Couponing for the Extremely Normal: Check Your Groupon Account


Welcome to Couponing for the Extremely Normal!

Couponing for the Extremely Normal: Rain Check Shopping

rain checks

I was able to … [Read more...]

Couponing for the Extremely Normal: Irish?


I'm Irish.   Technically, I'm only a quarter Irish but having been born a "Monahan," I can't be anything but Irish.  As such, St. Patrick's Day is an important holiday, one which should be celebrated with corned beef, cabbage, carrots, potatoes and, in the case of my husband, green beer. I'll admit I have never cooked corned beef.  That's not to say I don't eat it, I've just never cooked it.  Amee's corned beef recipe post last week inspired me to give it a try. I guess I should clarify … [Read more...]

Couponing for the Extremely Normal: A Fairy Tale

Welcome to Couponing for the Extremely Normal!
