Who Has Time For Coupon Cutting

Many of you have asked how I have the time and patience to look for deals and cut coupons. I do have a full time job, and often consider coupons my part time job. I enjoy cutting coupons VERY MUCH.

Coupons as well as rebates have saved my family hundreds of dollars this year already. I love looking at my receipt after I leave a store to see all my savings. I bring my receipt home and my husband is always very proud. Technically, it's money in his pocket too!!

I love how flexible coupon cutting is. If I'm busy one day, they can wait. I usually cut and sort coupons at night while my husband and I are watching TV. You need to be able to multi-task, and I like seeing how much gets done. Of course I like cutting more than sorting. Sometimes I'll cut 4 or 5 Sunday paper coupon circulars at a time, and then hate having to organize them. Then I think of how much I am going to save with all these coupons and I get excited again =)

Another great reason to score all the deals in town is to donate them. I know you don't need 20 tubes of toothpaste, but I love how I feel after I give away products to needy families. Check in your town and their should be many places you can drop off.

Always remember coupons should be fun and a savings to you. If you are not getting the benefits from them, then don't cut coupons. Some of my friends used to go through the circulars and only cut the 1 or 2 coupons they needed. That's great, but in the next month, you might need that coupon for Pam cooking spray. If there is a product you know you wont use, then don't cut it, but most of the time(since coupons are usually good for a month)- you can find a great match up deal and score your product at a fraction of the retail price. Enjoy and happy coupon cutting!!


  1. I totally enjoy coupons too. I have been seeing so many more of my friends and family getting into looking for deals and printing coupons.

  2. My family just started using coupons and we have been enjoying it. I have been starting a coupon binder and your blog has been so useful. Thanks for all you do.
