Suffering from Coupon Disorganization – After we have moved I suffered from this! My coupons were literally EVERYWHERE!! A few weeks ago I couldn’t even find some of my coupons to go to Publix 🙁 Last weekend we finally went through all my coupons, trashed the expired ones and reorganized what I had. About 80% of the coupons were expired so it was like starting fresh!
Pondering the “F” word in Couponing – Not to give too much away but this is a great post about the controversy that goes around COUPON FRAUD.
On twitter tweeting #FirstWorldProblems has been the latest craze. Angela over at The Coupon Project wrote a post about Couponing First World Problems that I found some couponing comic relief.
I LOVE this FRUGAL PAINTING ACTIVITY! She uses a ton of stuff around the house that most of us probably throw away!
Using UPROMISE to pay off student loan debt! This is a great post I need to get better on using my UPROMISE account that currently has about $2 in it.
Students learn benefits of Couponing – This is one of my BIG goals with couponing. I really want to teach or write a curriculum about teaching young people about couponing and then in turn donating our extras to the needy. There are so many without food and toiletries if we can buy 1 extra can of tomato sauce or toothpaste for free we can donate it to someone in need and in turn help fulfill our calling as Catholics/Christians to serve God.
Kelly over at Kansas City Mama’s has written a GREAT series on Costo memberships (If you have Sams or BJs the same rules will apply). When our Costco membership expired in June we didn’t renew it for we didn’t have the money but there are times I miss it. I got a coupon in the mail for a free trial for BJ’s I might go check it out just to see. She offers some great pros and cons.

I love that idea of donating things. It requires a change in mindset, and what a beautiful change. Good luck!
