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 ...

Couponing for the Extremely Normal: Check Your Groupon Account

Welcome to Couponing for the Extremely Normal! One of my favorite ways to save money is buying daily deals from sites like Groupon.  To name a few, I've enjoyed the savings on movies, dinner and discounted gift cards.  I make a point of recording expiration dates and reminders to use my daily deal coupons before they expire.  However, a number of times they have expired before I could use them. Good news came out this week when Groupon settled a class action suit.  The highlight ...

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 ...

Couponing for the Extremely Normal: A Fairy Tale

Welcome to Couponing for the Extremely Normal! One of my favorite things to do when I shop to be a "coupon fairy."  Here are two ways to do this:  Look at what other shoppers are buying and then offer them a coupon or two from your stash.  Another is to leave extra coupons next to the corresponding items in the store.  Many times, these are coupons which are about to expire and which will never be used.

Why coupon?

Zemanta Related Posts Thumbnail

This is what I asked myself five months ago. I figured that the food that has coupons for it were ones I didn't eat. I am right that some of  the food we eat do not have coupons for them. GASP, from the crowd. Well then why do I coupon? That is a very simple answer because I hate paying full price for diapers, formula, dish soap, tampons, shampoo, soap, laundry soap, paper towels, toilet paper, napkins, sponges, make up, razors, and every other consumable I use. I also use coupons for meals out, ...
