Saving $$$$ With Coupons

My husband went shopping at Banana Republic a couple weeks ago and came home with a bunch of new clothes. The first thing I asked was if he used any of the coupons we have had sitting in our kitchen, he of course said “No, it was a spur of the moment shopping trip”. Ugh. Okay, so in the meantime he has worn the clothes and taken off the tags, while we kept getting more 25% & 40% off coupons.

I think since we got married and even more since I had Brody I have been using coupons. I just started getting ones that were $5.00 off for diapers and I didn’t want to just throw them out. Now it has become a little bit of an obsession. I get annoyed when I have to buy diapers and don’t have my $5 or $6 dollar off BJ’s coupon. I also recently saw Bill Rancic (the first winner of The Apprentice) on Rachael Ray talking about people who use coupons. He was telling everyone how much people can save per year and he said some statistic about how the majority of people who use coupons make $75,000+ and the people who use coupons the least make under $20,000… interesting…

So anyway, I took my coupons, Matt’s clothes, and went to Banana. Without even looking at the clothes in my bag, the cashier took my receipts, my coupons and refunded our credit card $98.00!
Awesome, right?!? For doing nothing, for making a quick trip to Banana and handing in my coupons! J

So now when I see certain coupons, I am going to share them with you guys. Even if it is just a dollar here, two dollars there… just think, if you saw that dollar laying on the street you would pick it up, right?
