No Inserts to clip this week!
Can you believe there will be no inserts to clip this week!? I’m not sure what I’m going to do, I just finished putting away the last of the clipped coupons from my 8 inserts last week (4 inserts per paper and landlord brought me an extra paper, love it). Couponing can be a full time job so although it does make me a little sad to know there won’t be any new coupons, I do love that I won’t be thinking coupons on Easter Sunday.
I want to take this moment to share The Frugal Free Gal’s post about the Dangers of Extreme Couponing. I might have fallen victim to this danger at one point but being broke does have it’s advantages in that I couldn’t possibly practice this type of couponing and still have money left at the end of the week. She gives some great tips and one that I would like to reiterate is that you should never clip ALL the Sunday inserts. I clip only what I KNOW I will eventually buy and then folder the rest to save in case there is sale that will make them free or even moneymakers (AND I know where this item can go…sister, daughter, friend, stockpile).
I still haven’t been able to catch Extreme Couponing so I can’t give my opinion on any aspects of the show but the blogs you find online will always be a much better resource on the true reality of what it takes to coupon (be it extreme or average).
