I first saw extreme couponing on the Nate Berkus show and began researching on how I could do this to help with the family budget. I was trying to operate the budget on $50.00 a week with few coupons. It was very difficult. I would buy the store brand, since it was normally cheaper even with a coupon. I would cut coupons for products I knew I liked and buy them the next time I went to the store. Never paying attention to when that item went on sale to get it even cheaper. I just always thought that was a bonus when that would happen. I did notice the constant changing of prices and it was difficult to know if the product you wanted was going to increase in price on your next visit. This would throw my budget off.
I visit my couponing 101 series to learn how to start extreme couponing. This is a four part series to teach to the basics of couponing. I do not know everything and do not claim to know everything on Extreme Couponing, so come back to visit on Fridays to see how others shop on my Friday Finals linky for more inspiration.
One of the best things I have found through extreme couponing is not the amount of items I can get for free or extremely cheap, but how I can then donate and pass on items to someone in need. I feel I can give more now than ever before. I keep a basket of items I get for free, but I may not need to use. Whenever an opportunity comes up to donate I love running to my basket to see how much I can give. Not only do I get excited, but so does my daughter when we can give to those in need.
