Clipping Coupons~ once you start, you'll never stop!

Being in financial debt is enough to make a person physically ill. Seriously. Depending on the amount of money owed, the feeling of helplessness can greatly affect a person's well being. To some being in debt is like a vicious cycle. You pay one bill to only get another that you can't afford, not to mention unexpected expenses that arise which are out of your control. It can be a mess!
my coupons~SAVE, SAVE, SAVE!

I'm one of the millions of Americans who are in extreme debt, due to my loans for medical school. With 6-figures worth of debt looming over my head, and not many options available to decrease school expenses and personal bills, I was determined to figure out a way to cut cost. Seeing the show "Extreme Couponing," on TLC was my aha moment!

I've always known about coupons in the Sunday paper and online, but never really took advantage of the savings. Yet, when I saw people saving more than $500 on one grocery bill on Extreme Couponing, I was sold! So, every Sunday I buy the local paper for $2.00 and clip coupons. Not only do I clip coupons, but also review the circulars for the local grocery stores and convenient stores (such as Rite Aid, CVS) to see what items are on sale. By doing this, I can save double by (1) getting the item on sale AND (2) using my coupon. I've only be doing this for about a month, but saw the benefit instantly.
Perfect sunday~ coupons, hot green tea, tasty breakfast panini
You're never to good to clip coupons... try it once and you'll be hooked!
