Getting 'those' looks

February 6th, 2008 at 05:42 pm

Grocery shopping with alot of coupons has always resulted in 'those' looks from people behind me in line and from cahsiers. But occassionally, like this past Sunday, a gal came up to me while I was digging in my coupon file and wanted to know where I got all my coupons? She didn't even know about the Sunday paper inserts. I explained about inserts, the jist of using them when items go on sale, and gave her a web address of a refunding mag I subscribe to. She was so excited and I took her to the front of the store where the newspapers are. She grabbed a copy of both. Later at checkout, I discovered one of the papers was 50 cents off with our shopper card! I smiled as I imagined hat gal discovering this, too!
That's what makes it all worthwhile - giving someone else the info & opportunity to save $$$!
I saved 32% that day on my few purchases. I hope run into her again someday as she is checking out and see her smile when she sees the difference coupons can make!
The refund mag is www.refundcents.com. It is a pay website but her prices for online access only are VERY reasonable!

    I don't complain...I admire people with coupons! Especially, since I know they will be saving a ton of money over the year. I get excited to see the outcome of their bill probably as much as they do. It's fun to see how much someone with patience and thought can save on their groceries! I'm just not very good at it yet. It's great that you took the time to help a newbie couponer!

    Ooo, never tried one of the pay for coupon sites. Not really in my philosophy (like the pay admission to shop flea markets).

    It is nice to find a fellow refund cents member. I second the recommendation for Refund Cents. The online access is $12/year. You are not paying for the coupons but rather for the wealth of information the site provides. Between the easy sales lists with coupons already matched up for me and the information on clearance items and other sales, I save that every week. I have a long list of items that I no longer pay for since they can be "bought" with coupons for nothing.

    I started seriously couponing after finding a website called "Deal a Go Go." The website was passed on to Families.com and a lot of members left. Now, it looks like most of previous DAGG members are at Hot Coupon World. It's free and there's so much information there.

    Thanks for the comments and the Families.com site! Had never heard of it!
