When I think back to my pre-coupon days, my weekly triple-digit trips to the grocery store and my budgeting ignorance, I see just how far I have come. The change has been overwhelming to so many aspects of my life:
  1. My budget: the belt is loosened and I can do more things with the surplus money I’m saving!
  2. My stockpile: is a far cry from what it used to be. Come flood, hurricane, pestilence, swine flu, whatever! The pillsbury biscuits will be a-roastin’ over the campfire and the juicy juice will be flowing, come on over!
  3. My confidence to talk to store managers and confidence in my knowledge of policies.
  4. My menu: the way I cook revolves around my coupon budget and acquisitions, and it’s working out just fine!
  5. My other stockpiles: the way I shop for clothes and other necessities: I stock pile everything now! I’m working on a year’s supply of clothes, shoes, jackets for my kids and a reserve “in case of emergency” savings account.
  6. My role as head of the family finances: my husband thinks I’m cool and I’m wheeling and dealing like a stockbroker, getting the best deals I can wherever I go!
