dollarshopper is on a distinguished road
Idea New couponer

Hi I'm Brandi, from Wintersville, Oh and new to couponing. I watch videos all the time on youtube and TLC, and everybody saves thousands. I always have one measly coupon. I am nurse work two jobs and my husband works m-f making chemicals. He recently is back to work from being layed off at a mill for almost 6 years. we are both working full time and still are having hard time making ends meet. I want my 5 year old to have a good life I never did!! We own a lot of our stuff from working hard, but with the economy we are still having a hard time if not worse off. Please need any suggestions or tips of just starting out. Would love to save a lot and get free stuff like i see people. I think the world of couponing is fantastic and I really want to be a supper saver like people I see. Good couponing looks is but is rather time consuming and well worth it. If you please could give me some tips and advice on how to get started would really appreciate it!!!

You can learn a lot from looking on here at people's plans and trips they post. When I was first starting I would sit down with my paper Sunday afternoons and read on here about what deals people were getting and copy. Eventually you will learn. Your binder won't be full in a month, and you don't need 30 of each coupon to finds deals. I have a great little stockpile of health and beauty stuff and buy only 2-3 papers a week. Lots of people post on here about spending less than a dollar for a ton of stuff. It will happen, but not every trip. Give yourself time and don't be afraid to return items if a deal doesn't work right. Good Luck!

I'm in the same boat as you DollarShopper. I recently went to working night shift and need something quiet to do on my off days. Mrs Mutt and I have always been pretty big sales type folks, but never really chased the coupon game.

In fact she usually puts an entire month's worth of meat on the table for about $60 and we have a family of 6 (including 2 teenage boys.) She finds a whopper of a deal and I trim, marinate, vacuum seal, and freeze......that part of our shopping works GREAT.

Now if I can just learn to get it going at that level for everything else.

Welcome from East Tennessee! We're so glad you're here! Your stock pile won't get huge overnight, it takes months of preparing shopping lists in combination with sales and coupons! Take things in moderation, choosing what your family WILL USE vs. just getting something for "Free".

The Lord will guide you always. Isaiah 58:11
