Some may say obsessed

…others will say hoarder…

…some will say crazy….

….others will say too much time…

….I say saved over 80% while some items were completely free!….

…..I say give to others….

….I say excellent gift ideas…..

Everything in this picture was 100% free!

This pile of stuff was about 78% off.

Yes, the piles go all the way back, but at least they are organized 🙂

These pictures do not include the 10 bottles of tide, the 4 packages of tide pods, 10 bottles of dawn and ajax, the mounds of toilet paper and paper towels, or the loads of food my children have already eaten.  This is a 1/2 a months worth of couponing.  We use this, donate it, allow people to shop for free in my bathroom, and give to food/church pantries.  I never sell what I’ve bought to make money.  I love the challenge of couponing and the smiles on peoples faces when I say come and pick what you need.  It brings me joy.

      1. Thanks; that would be fun. We don’t buy a lot of packaged goods, so using coupons can be a challenge. Also, my guy is particular about certain brands. None of this lends itself to having cupboards full of discounted items, but I like the concept! 🙂

      2. Packaged goods, as in foods or cleaning supplies or both? I’m HUGE on making my own cleaning supplies and I pretty much stick with vinegar, bleach, baking soda, castille soap, and a few other little things. I normally do not buy any name brand cleaning supplies. That being said, when you can get them for pennies on the dollar, I find that they make excellent gift ideas for newlyweds, new moms, church pantries, county pantries, etc.

        My guy was (can still be) brand loyal. If it is completely free, I get it, even if he doesn’t like it because I can donate it. Win Win 🙂

        I have some sites that, everyday friday, has at least one freebie (name brand food) and a nice discount on fresh produce that I will add to my blog.

      3. We don’t buy packaged foods and make some of our own cleaning supplies.

        I like the idea of using them as gifts though; I hadn’t thought of that. Now, I just need to find a place to store them. (lol) I am maxed out on space.

        Wow! I didn’t know stores have coupons for produce! Ours certainly never does. That website would be nice though.
