For all you Coupon Clippers...

...or those who want to be.

I never saw the point of clipping a coupon to save $.35. It really isn't much....
but then when you clip 10 of them, it adds up.

I've only recently found this online realm of 'coupon crazies' as I like to call them. And they make is sooo easy to become one of them! And now I want you to too!

There are three that I follow on Facebook
Frugal Coupon Living, Thrifty and Thriving, and Frugal Living NW

and two that I actually GO to their blog.
Thrifty and Thriving and Frugal Living NW

I live int he NW, so that's where most are based...but there is a RING of these people and you can easily get lost from blog to blog! Lol

Basically they lay it all out for you, all you have to do it the clipping and printing.
This week there were come killer sales at Albertson's and Safeway...and I wanted to brag :)
