About Me!

2012-09-20 21.51.21

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!

  1. Hi!
    I’ve followed this blog since you started and have actually been really inspired to go cocooning and I actually do it now!
    Thanks for this awesome blog!
    P.S.
    You’re really cute 🙂

    • Hey there! Thanks for the awesome comments and great job getting into the couponing world! It can be alot of work, but it’s well worth it! I don’t mind trading some of my time to get things together if it means i’m going to save money and get the things we need!

  2. Did you stop blogging? ;( Sorry for the long delay in response, Bubblews!! If you want to check it out comment on my blog, and i well send you a link

    • Well I really had started to keep my sister informed on things but then she kinda stopped looking at the site, and then it just felt like no one was reading. But I thank you for commenting just now! Shows me that someone misses it :P. Makes me wanna keep going !

      I’ve also slowed a little as the deals for what I want/need haven’t been as good as I’d like to post about. I’m also at a point in my stockpile where I’m just maintaining and not adding extensively. I love writing though!
