My OCD in FULL Swing

Just a little evidence of the fact that I suffer from OCD... just a little bit...

I recently have fallen in LOVE with cutting coupons... I have saved up to $40.00 in one shopping trip, leaving the final balance around $80.00...

... I have gotten FREE cleaning supplies which for me, is almost better than flowers...

... I have another excuse to purchase some cool color tabs and pull out my sharpie markers...

... and the BEST part of it all: it fits nicely in my purse so I never have to go without it.

My goal for May's grocery shopping is to only purchase items I have coupons for and NOT to get carried away with the "stocking up" mentality... after all, the point is to save money, not purchase items you don't need simply because you have a coupon!

I will say, if the brand name item with a coupon is still more expensive than the off brand, the coupon will have to wait, either for a better sale or the trash can... I love my off brand items!

Here's to fun shopping for FREE! or at least for LESS!


  1. I thought I was OCD with my coupons. I do believe you have me beat. That's quite a system you have!
    I love saving with coupons. I do have that stocking up mentality though. I may work on that in May too!
    Love this post. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thanks for all the great tips! I took notes off of your post :) Happy Friday and I love your super cute blog and I love your cute blog!

  3. wow! where did you get the pages to go in the binders? are there pockets? I'm curious...

  4. Can you post more pictures of your binder? I really need to organize my coupons and yours looks great!!

  5. Beth & Cherie - I am working on a post now - I will have it up on Saturday - it will have all the details on the coupon notebook!
