Why I started to coupon again

For several weeks now, life has been crazy. We’re approaching the end of the school year which means one last push to finish school work, music and dance recitals, graduation open houses, etc. I have also had a lot of teaching responsibilities with homeschooling, church and my piano studio.

Coupon Clipping Tip

Coupon ClippinG

Then I staple the like pages together. […]

Storage Solution for all those Coupon Finds

Storage Solution

It’s a new year and time to get organized!

There’s not much to do outside in this cold Ohio weather, so it’s a perfect time to clean out closests and reorganize. Today, I tackled the laundry/storage room. My goal was to find more space to store all the great deals I pick up while couponing.

I added a shelf (from IKEA) to our storage unit and then attached two walls of pegboard with hooks.
