Sunday is Coupon Day - Q&A with Mr. Coupon

As you know Nathan aka Mr. Coupon was on the show Extreme Couponing on TLC and wow! What an awesome savings. Of course, this may not be everyone's desire to use coupons. But for him, he loves it and can't beat getting a great deal. Also, Mr. Coupon also runs WeUseCoupons.com! If you follow me on Twitter you know I post a few deals on there! I'm dozing off so I'll make this a quick post. I was contacted by Nathan to bust any myths or shed some light on this show. I myself just take the tips, I don't think I'd ever shop like that. But here are the questions I asked Nathan:
  1. DO you believe in.... "NEVER PAY RETAIL?"
I believe in this: “*TRY* Never to pay retail”  Sometimes it’s impossible to not pay retail.  Spurge a little.  BUT my goal is to TRY never to pay retail!!
  1. How do I suggest I get my local grocery stores to double/triple coupon? None of my local stores do this! I have only had two transactions that were FREE!
Many of the couponers on the show have stores that don’t double.  It can be a little more difficult to save!  Call your stores customer service number!  See if they would listen! 
  1. What are your favorite stockpiling items?
Items that don’t expire are my favorite because I never have to worry about checking their expiration date!  Shampoo, toilet paper things like that!
  1. How much did you pay for your shelving?
I made them myself.  I went to Home Depot, got 2 by 4’s, plywood and nails.  They cost around $25. 
  1. Do you brush your teeth?
LOL a lot!  I have enough toothpaste right!?  Actually truth be told the ‘toothpaste wall’ was almost entirely donated to Operation TroopAid!! 

I totally agree with your mom is "Phenomenal in Math!" I always have to use a calculator and have to double check everything twice! I still use my fingers too! Today proves that I ain't that good at math. Hubs had to add it twice to make sure everything was correct and I saved about 68% today at Target!

Thanks to Mr. Coupon and other couponing bloggers they have helped me save so much over these past few months.
Good night!

Ungrateful during Thanksgiving?

Hubby made me cry on Thanksgiving.... The usual share what you're thankful for, he just went all out talking about how we had one of the toughest years and we were apart from each other for six months and how much he missed us and it just sucked. Ohhhh, the waterfalls!! But yeah, it was the longest year ever. Speaking of Thanksgiving.... HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Reminds me of something that's been on my mind....

We just moved out of the valley and guess what?! The worst part moving to a new place was not the moving. Before we moved I scoped out our neighborhood, grocery stores, parks and I joined several mom groups. I knew negative Nancy’s were bound to share their troubles in Facebook groups but I’ve never heard so many complaints in one day.

I don’t know what it is but I don’t like when people complain. I just think to myself, “Did you really have to share that?” or about an easy solution to that complaint. There would have been a better way to spend your time than writing a n…
