Just another day-- except KMART IS OFFERING DOUBLES!

I don't have a lot to blog about today. No great recipes. No big nature discovery. No mad dash through a thrift store. Not even a craft. No miraculous-life changing freebie's. Not even a good movie.. to suggest. Oh, but wait....there is this.... our K-MART store is offering double and triple coupons! Did I take advantage? You bet your sweet bippy I did! Yesterday- late afternoon- I went alone...so I could really concentrate on the deals... I don't know which I like better... scouting for deals or watching and eavesdropping on other shoppers! Some are real die-hard couponers...complete with an ultra-organized 3-ring binder. I actually wanted to strike up a conversation with one lady- but she looked a little intense and high-strung. So, I shuffled away from her. I saved around $80. spent $60. My biggest expense was purchasing six jars of Folgers coffee for $4. each. I did find FREE deals on: Vitamin Water, Band-Aids with antibiotic cream, Carefree pantyliners, and six packs of Trident gum. Other deals for just a handful of coins? White Vinegar, Ragu Sauce, Kleenex, Fiber One Bars (for Boy Scout Camp), Aqua Fresh toothpaste, Kellogg's cereal, Post cereal, a box of Ziplock Freezer bags and tea mix. I'm sure there's a lot more...but, my super-organized husband unloaded everything in the pantries. Yes, that's right...I said pantries...we now have two. Maybe I should take pictures? By the way, Krogers is having an insane sale on meat! smile, wink, nod.

Okay- I'm needing to figure out how to get started like you. What is the first step in being a coupon queen?
