CouponSense success...

So recently I took the plunge and joined couponsense (my sister-in-law has been doing it for a while and I was getting envious of all of her good deals!). For those of you who aren't familiar with it, CouponSense is a service that tells you how to use your coupons. They do all the research for you and have a great website, so that when you go shopping you end up buying things for much cheaper than you would normally pay. They also help you get multiple Sunday papers (I get 3) so that when there IS a good deal, you get a lot of it! I have been doing it for 3 weeks now and have had fun shopping, stocking up, and getting things for FREE (or nearly free). Here is what I did today!



What I got:
4 boxes of cereal- FREE
5 small chocolate milks- FREE
4 packs frozen veggies- FREE
2 packs TP- FREE
3 cartons Blue Bunny ice cream- 85 cents each
3 childrens cold/allergy medicine- FREE (actually, I made $4!!)

Call me crazy, but it is fun to save money!

Awesome! I watched that Oprah last week and they had a coupon lady on there and she gets all sorts of crazy deals - it makes me want to be a little more coupon conscious. I love free stuff! :)

I love couponsense! We did it awhile ago. We got tons of free stuff. Best of luck!

Way to go Amber my fellow frugal friend. Doesn't your heart just skip a beat when you hear the word free:) Livingstones are really good at it too and my favorite is when they go to ring up a bunch of items and the store owes them money.

O my gosh! I am so excited I spotted your blog. I seriously wonder what you are up to all the time. Holy cow your kids grew up in the last year. Linc is so cute and soooo much bigger than last time I saw him. I am so glad you are all doing so well. Meggan Nielson Nielsoncaln.blogspot.com

Hi Amber! YOU ROCK!!! That is awesome that you are getting such good deals. Is it a lot of work? I have heard of people doing this and would love to be that good but with life being so crazy right now I'm always afraid it would take more time then I've got. Let me know if you could. Thanks!
