O.K.....SERIOUSLY, what the hell is going on? I went to buy the Houston Chronicle (which I never ever buy) and when I got home, I opened the paper and section by section dissected it to get to the coupons and NADA....NOTHING! There was not one coupon in the damn paper. WTF? I found all the store circulars, but no coupons. I was so disappointed, because I really wanted to start using coupons and I was so let down.
The whole reason of creating this blog was so I could learn how to use coupons and share my links with this blogger friendly mommy's out there, but thanks to Houston Chronicle I will have to wait until next Sunday to start clipping coupons.
Now I shared this idea with my best friend who does not believe anything is for free, but I intend on showing her that if all the other SAHM's out there can do it, so can we! You know be Penny Pinching Moms and get groceries for almost nothing or at least FREE! Free, I like free who doesn't like getting something for free? I mean I get all excited just thinking of all the great free stuff from the coupons out there waiting to come home with me and stock up my shelves and fridge.
My best friend thinks, I have completely gone bananas, but let me explain my ration behind my whole new idea about clipping coupons......Recently, I ran across a local lady who has a blog. On her blog she talks about how she brings home bags and bags of groceries for little to nothing. And most of the time her groceries are FREE! (I didn't know this was possible?) She even discussed how you can get free make-up, toilet paper, (and shows photos of her items and receipts) and everything in general for free or next to nothing by using coupons and matching them up with the sales in the store circulars. WOW!! I was so intrigued by her blog and surprised that there were tons of other bloggers who knew this, but I was so clueless to all the freebies you get by using COUPONS!
So I decided to try and do the same. I figured why not save a little money for my family and get my stuff for practically free! If it is working for other SAHM's and Working Mom's than why can't I put it to good use and do the same. So that is why I went out and bought the damn paper. I had planned this Sunday to cut and clip the coupons. I even went as far as organizing a note book with sections and page holders to store the coupons and circulars. But much to my dismay, I was screwed by the Houston Chronicle. BECAUSE.....there were No coupons. So I will have to try again next Sunday and see what happens. I am planning on calling the Chronicle to ask if this Sunday's paper even had coupons?
Anyone out there in coupon world have any advice to share with me 'the newbie coupon pinching Mommy?'
