Frugal Fridays!

Tip: Buy a Sunday Newspaper!!! It's worth it!

I mentioned before that I am on a journey to saving money, paying off debt and becoming as frugal as possible. So, I have decided to invest $1.50/week into getting the newspaper. This was my VERY FIRST time purchasing a newspaper. LOL Really, it is. I mean I used to sit at the table in my younger days and help clip coupons with my dad on Saturdays, I just thought it was something fun to do. But now, I will be adopting this tradition and have my son help. He loves helping! So I an sure he will be excited to add this to our list of things to do together.

Ok, so I know you say “duh, people have been doing this for years”. Yes, I know! But I wasn’t! I was only using coupons that were emailed to me! But guess what, you can combine coupons! You can use store coupons, on top of manufacturer’s coupons!
I was SO anxious to see what kind of coupons I could get my hands on! As I opened the newspaper, I was super excited every time I came across a coupon that was of use to me and my family! Toothpaste, paper towel, diapers, wipes, nail polish, baby Aveeno baby wash, and the list goes on and on! These are products that I purchase monthly!

I am so excited to go shopping! I now can say “YES” when the cashier asks me “Do you have any coupons”?

Yayy!!! I’ll be back to share with you next Friday how much money I saved once I combine them with store coupons and savings club cards!
