{Part 3} Couponing at 18: Elizabeth’s Journey

Here’s a different take on couponing that you don’t hear about often!

If you didn’t read the first little installment - go HERE, and the second one is HERE.

Hey it’s Elizabeth again…. I just wanted to start out again by saying thank you so much for your comments. They really helped!!!!

This time I looked at this website before making a list.  That helped so much!!!!!! I felt like they had made a cheat sheet for me!  After writing my list of what I was going to buy, I gathered all of my coupons and put them in a pencil pouch holder. I arrived at Bi-Lo and I felt a little overwhelmed. However, I figured out that if I stick to my list I don’t feel as overwhelmed.

I got all of my items and went to the check out line. I was very excited to see all of my hard work put into action. Then she handed me the receipt. The orginal price was $118.16 and the price that I paid was $48.33!!!!!!!!!!!!   I was so excited that I did a dance in the middle of Bi-Lo.  Stay tuned for next week savings.

Your thrifty friend,

    Congratulations! I’m so glad to see you doing a good job, and being able to share your savings with us. Gives inspiration. I know it gives me a thrill just to see how much I can save too.
    have a wonderful day.

    Way to go, Elizabeth. Even though, I’m way to old to be in college, I, too, coupon to not only help my own family, but to help my mom. My dad passed away in July and my mom’s income is so small. I admire you for caring so much about your parents that you try to help them. You are going to be successful at whatever you do with your life. May God continue to bless you and your parents. I don’t even know you, but I am sending you hugs…With love from above, Rebecca
