Well over the passed five years I've been growing carnivorous plants, and participating regularly on the forum; however, I have had to decrease my cp hobby, in addition to my poison dart frog hobby, as I make my move into college life.
I would like to share with you my new hobby
Extreme Couponing. You may have seen it on tv, and might not have believed it to be possible. This hobby, like growing cps, is very rewarding. Although it might not be as intense as the tv show, who's complaining about saving money?. My average savings has been 65%+, with this week's average being at 85% (at TOPS), 89% savings (at Rite-Aid).
For more secrets about couponing and joining the circle I would recommend joining
i don't mean to spam the forum, but offer something everyone can benefit from, especially college students who may be feeling the stress of paying back college loans etc.
one of my sample transactions included
A couple weeks ago the deal I got was edge shaving gels 7oz/skintimit shaving gels @$.42 each.AT TOPS
TOTAL BEFORE SAVINGS: $85.80
TOTAL SAVINGS $68.28
TAX PAID $.03
TOTAL COST OUT OF POCKET: $17.55 (80% savings)
4 crest toothpaste
6 pepsi 2liters
8 boxes of taco shells (10pk) stack n stuff
8 packages (8pk i believe) of ball park hot dogs
4 boxes (5pk)of chewy granola yogurt bars
30 items @ about $.67/item
Cheaper than the dollar store
Next weeks deal I'm hoping to get some Prego pasta sauce jars for $.60 or so each. I'm kind of bummed that I missed the free pasta offer.
Not your everyday hobby, but it's definitely a fun one. If you enjoy looking for deals and bringing them down to 60+% off in addition to doing multiple calculations in your head this might be something to try.
(((Warning: haha this hobby has kept me up all night thinking about the sale, haha)))
Does anyone else coupon?
