Coupons

This morning at 3 a.m. I awoke and I could not sleep so I organized my coupons. I have used coupons for years, but have slacked some because of the aggravation of juggling them in the store, etc. I figured that the amount of money I saved was not worth all the hassle. I just used the ones I picked up in the store while shopping. I don't really use a lot of the stuff coupons are for, anyway. Then, I guess that should make my job easier, huh? Now, I want to use them more for the products I do buy and save money. I guess retirement does that to you. (retirement = half the money, twice the husband. I like twice the husband, just not half the money! :)
I signed up for this site and they send me an email weekly with coupons. I go to their site and choose which ones I want then print them off.
So, now I am all ready for grocery shopping, except for the energy to do so. After this bronchitis is gone and I get some rest from not sleeping, then I can see how my new organization works ... and if I keep using coupons again.


Out with the old and in with the new. I am retiring my faithful coupon holder. Many of the new ones will not fit in it. And with the new one, even my grocery list fits in it!

I found this after I posted.
A site to encourage you to use coupons.

Thanks for the websites. I used to use coupons all the time. I really need to now, being retired!

Thanks for your sweet comment on my music website. I wish you could have heard the music. The owner of the piano store, where I bought my piano, said that one could be published and recorded. I keep hoping for a recording. I am an author, publisher now with ASCAP.
