Using Coupons

I tried using coupons for the first time today.  I hear everyone talking about all the good deals they are getting.  I have to say it wasn’t bad.  

Between the coupons I had, the stores triple coupon special and the stores sales, I saved close to $40.  That is about 27% of my total bill.  My savings definitely made buying the Sunday paper worth it.

Best advice I received from friends is watch for sales that match the coupons in that weeks paper.  At least one store in the area will have coupon items on sale so you get an even better deal.

All in all I have to say that think the first try was a success.
