Couponing for the Rest of Us

{Part 7} Couponing at 18: Elizabeth’s Journey

Meet 18 year-old Elizabeth, who recently started couponing.  We love it when she checks in to let us know how she is doing!  Sounds like she had a bad run this week – Elizabeth, if it makes you feel any better – Publix was CLOSED when I finally went to get my Peter Pan deal!!  Sigh….  See her posts from the begining: HERE

Hey everyone.

I hope that your week has been good. Where I live, we were expected to recieve seven to ten inches of snow. I was very excited to hear this news, because I love snow. On the other hand, I was very nervous, because this is my first snow storm living in my own apartment.

I decided the day before we were supposed to get the big storm to go shopping for groceries. I had all of my coupons in order, and I arrived at the store to find the whole parking lot was completely full. I went in, and everything I had coupons for was completely sold out. I was so depressed that I wasn’t able to find even one of the items on my list. However, I will not give up trying, and I know I will get better as time goes on.

Your thifty friend,
