Are you Thrifty? Do you look for opportunities to save money?
Do you clip coupons?
My answer to all of these would have been, not very much. Ok ok, I clip coupons, and if it’s something we use I will use a coupon. I’ve been to garage sales and thrift stores, sometimes they freak me out with the crap people give away and they re-sell, but I’ve been trying to see it in a different light.
Last Sunday I went to a class to learn about couponing and saving more money. It was very interesting, and I learned a lot. It will take a while to kind of build up coupons, to follow along with the sales at the grocery, and maybe using Target, Walgreens and CVS as a source for deals. I look for sales, store coupons, manufacturers coupons etc. This week was fun, I found some good deals, and I organized the coupons I already had, but I can see I’ll have to do more….now it’s kind of a challenge.
For fun Kevin and I went to 3 Thrift stores today, I bought one item….a 75 cent book!!! We were kind of looking for things Adrienne might use in her college apartment. We shall see, she will have four roomates and over the summer they can compare what each might have, furniture, kitchen goods etc.
Do think we will suddenly start being frugal about all things and quit buying new……..heck no! I do think we can save some money on our food and personal needs and cleaning and paper products.
I’ll keep you posted!!
