Hey there! Thanks again for coming by my blog. My name is Stephen (I like to go by Ste) and I really enjoy getting out there and finding ways to supply my household with the things we need while still saving money.
Since I started couponing in October of 2012, my whole concept of grocery/personal item shopping has totally changed. I went from eating out all the time, only grabbing the bare necessities and barely using any of it for fear of having to buy more to almost the total opposite.
I’m now preparing meals 98% of the time at home and have a great stockpile of food and personal items to draw from. I’m not scared anymore of using/purchasing items, and the biggest thing for me is that I’m not scared of buying a brand name item anymore. Once you have the tricks, patience, and knowledge behind it, you can work out a way to get anything you want.
CVS/Pharmacy, Kroger and Publix are the main every week stores I coupon and are probably the places you’ll hear about most. Walmart, Target, Rite Aid and Walgreens are where i make fewer/smaller strategic purchases. I’ve also started to dabble in Kmart but I don’t see myself there very much.
I’ve learned to love playing this chess game and with it I have broadened my horizons and I hope that you do as well!
