My Couponing New Year’s Resolution!

Did you check out at Tamra’s post Happy New Year (& A Couponing Resolution)!?

She has decided to dive back into coupons with a newspaper subscription and all! (Watch for photos of her shopping trips!)

After reading her couponing resolution, I realized how “lazy” I have become in my own couponing.

Don’t get me wrong, I am still a faithful, once a week, binder totin’ lady but I slack in other areas, and three of them I intend to work on!

The first area I plan on working on is my menu planning! I have dabbed with it here and there in the past few months — but I have made a vow to myself (or a New Year’s resolution) to focus more of my time in this area!

How am I going to do this? With Food on the Table of course! I love their recipes & how THEY find the sale item for ME! If you want to join me on my menu planning mission — click the picture below to get started with Food on the Table! (PS It’s FREE!)


The second area I plan to devote some time — Mail in Rebates! These are yet another awesome source for saving money. Do you know how many I sent in for in 2011 — ONE! Can you believe it?!

So this year I plan to do better with my mail in rebates! And already for 2012 I have done one!! That’s right! I needed cat litter on the 2nd, and I had  zero coupons for cat litter — but I found a Try Me Free mail in rebate for Arm & Hammer Ultra Last Cat Litter. Watch for the mail in rebates I find, I will surely share them here!

The third area, which I am pretty ok with now, but needs to be shined up a little is my budget. This girl right here … well she has a mild shopping addiction. Please focus on the word mild! I feed a family of 4 and right now we are putting money aside to put down on our first home at the end of this year! So as you can imagine — my budget must be a little tighter than usual, and I tell you my husband has never minded much about my shopping trips before until now!! I swear even when I am at the store alone, I can feel him breathing down my neck when I pick up that unneeded but very wanted Nesquick mix!

If you would like to see a weekly review of my purchases, the mail in rebates I have submitted, and my menu planning press the LIKE button above, or leave a comment below, and you can join me on my journey …

  4. I would like to see a list, also are you doing the coupon buddys ? I am new to couponing but I am a newly single , single mother of 5 ! Two of them are babies and one has some health problems , which is a big expense. So my New Years resolution was to make a buget and stick with it . To coupon and save money (i love it as a hobby), and to blog at least once a week and then in november of 2012 I am going to try to turn my blog into a book thru create space. I also opened my business in 2011
