Coupon Clipper

Some of my friends are really good little savvy shoppers. They buy $100 worth of merchandise for $15. The other day I picked up the paper to read the article on the front cover that caught my eye. It was about a girl that confessed she cheats at BYU (artilcle here). As well, some lovely coupon inserts were shoved inside. I took one look and went back to the recycling bin to find more inserts. I gathered 20 or so, headed to the library and started clipping. I'm such a savvy shopper.Later I showed Spencer just exactly what I had gotten. Over 20 coupons to Arby's for a FREE small curly fry. (No Purchase Necessary) So perhaps its not the best (or the healthiest) kind of coupon to collect. But it's a start.

LOVE that you are the best coupon clipper!! At least you know what's essential. I laugh at the coupon clippers actually...they buy stuff they don't need...to have it fill up space they don't have...in order to save money they shouldn't spend. Hmmm.....

I probably would have made fun of you if I saw you cutting out 20 sheets of Arby's coupons in the library. Haha you're hilarious! But don't worry, I once picked out like 20 coupons from the trash for free Jamba Juice. Mmmm it was so worth it.

Go-you! Jake keeps urging me to become one of those savvy shoppers-but I am not good at the whole coupon thing-haha and we definitely need to go on a mini vacay or at least hang out!!!!

20 packs of curly fries are well worth the trip to the recycling bin. And I don't get those coupon people. My mother in law will go to the store and buy like $250 worth of groceries, and only pay like 75 cents. For reals. And she makes money on all these things by sending in rebates and stuff, it's crazy.

I am really into couponing. I started about 6 months ago and I have saved a ton of money. I have about 10 coupon blogs I check every couple days which I love because they do all the work. My favorite is hip2save.com
Did you know I use to work at Arbys? Yep, the one on state street by the mall. Ah, memories!
