This, like much of this blog so far, is more for my own records. But here is a short list of things I now no longer pay for. I either get them for free or don't get them. Period. The firmness of that statement amazes me. I started crazy couponing on Jan 01. And look at me saying that a buck is too much to pay for toothpaste. But it's true. It is. Free or bust, baby!
Body wash (give or take a few pennies)
Feminine pads (give or take a few pennies)
Candy (unless I need a rare filler at Walgreens)
Headache medicine (give or take a few pennies)
Magazine subscriptions (I refuse to pay a penny for them. I currently receive at least a dozen subscriptions each month for FREE!)
And the following items, I will only buy for next to nothing.
Cereal (under $0.50/box)
Yogurt (under $0.35/cup)
Laundry detergent (under $0.10/load)
Remember that I am pretty new to all of this. So I am fully aware that more seasoned coupon-aholics get better deals. But considering where I was four months ago, I am truly amazed at how quickly I have converted. I open my binders of coupons without a care in the world now!
