Show Us Your Life-Money Saving Tips!
This week for Kelly's Korner the theme for Show Us Your Life Fridays is Money Saving Tips!
My biggest money saving tip would be coupons. When I was younger I used to hate when my mom would use a bunch of coupons but now when you start paying for things on your own you have a different take on it. I love coupons! I always clip them out even if I may not use them--I just clip them and throw them in my wallet. I was watching the news this past week and they had a whole segment on coupons and how this mom of 4 kids had a binder FULL of coupons. They showed her at the grocery store and with all her groceries rung up her total was $167.00 and then minus all the coupons her final total was...are you ready for this???? $0.42!!!!!!!!!!!! Can you believe that??? $0.42! I mean WOW!
My favorite places to use coupons would be:
-Target (LOVE this place)
-Old Navy/Gap/Banana Republic
...okay basically anywhere!
