Couponing Is A Uniting Force

It is amazing how years ago people would turn up their noses at using coupons and today it is a cool thing to do. People try to outdo others on saving. There are shows about Extreme Couponing. There are even crimes being committed where people steal Sunday newspapers in order to get coupon inserts. Coupons are hot!

Coupons are also a way to unite people. You can get to know people well by sharing tips and good deals using coupons. It is a great way to start up a conversation. The reason I bring this up is that is what happened to me this morning. I ran into a mom and her son at the local grocery store this morning. I usually stop on the way home from work because it is easier for me and the store is less crowded. Somehow this lady and I started chatting and we talked about coupons and saving money. She is new to coupons and is interested in learning so I told her to hit me up on Facebook and I’d give her all my info. It was such a pleasant exchange. Someone else spoke my language!

I have been using coupons since I was 13. My parents didn’t make me. I just loved saving money. I lived in the country so I had to get Daddy to drive me to “town” so I could use my coupons and he would indulge me and do it. He didn’t laugh too much when he saw my savings. He thought was I was doing was pretty interesting.

There are so many websites dedicated to coupons and saving money. One of my favorites is because they give great deals for all the stores throughout the South. Basically it is one-stop “shopping” for good deals. I also love my friends on Facebook because they tell about good deals and how to get them. Very helpful!

I don’t do extreme couponing. There is just me and the 2 cats and we don’t need 50 gazillion of anything. But if I find a great deal on products we do use and I can afford it, I stock up!

So unite with fellow couponers! You will not only enjoy great conversation but you might also get to share coupons. Love twofers!
