We had a fun discussion on facebook that I wanted to bring to the blog…
What’s Your Motivation to Coupon?
I started couponing in 2008 after my husband and I had cut back on many of our expenses. We bought a new house and cut our house payment almost in half. We got rid of an extra car, cut cable tv, & were ferociously paying down credit card debt. When it wasn’t enough I started to cut coupons. When that wasn’t enough Joanie and I got into Extreme Couponing after hearing some pretty unreal stories from my coupon clipping aunt! Pretty soon we were saving $700 in one day & I haven’t paid full price for cereal since!
Thats my story, and here are some reasons we heard on facebook:
I love to save money and I like to have a stocked pantry and linen closet … It’s like I have a mini Walmart. Proud to see my goods that was purchase very cheap or free. – Queenie
I’m using my “savings” each month to pay down our house payment. Little bit here and a little bit there really add up! – Christine
