Like me, I'm sure there are many of you that have watched the TLC show "Extreme Couponing." It fascinates me. Intrigues me. Makes me jealous, yet slightly annoyed. Because, really, who needs 37 bottles of mustard? 

But it made me think of possible savings I could be missing out on by not cashing in on my Sunday paper's coupons. You see, I used to clip them. Right out of college. When I was a lot poorer. But let's be serious, everyone could use some savings during these tough times. And the fact that you can get staples like TP, paper towels, toothpaste, etc, on the cheap, got me thinking.

Will I become a deodorant hoarding crazy lady? Probably not. If I do, it's time for an intervention. But I did make a binder. Yes. You read that right. A binder. Go ahead, judge me, but it's a lot easier when you can see your coupons rather than rifle through a file. 

So over the next few weeks, I'll be seeing what kinds of deals I can drum up and share them with you all. It'll either be fantastic or a fail. 

If you're interesting in joining me, I suggest heading over to They give you some how to's, deals, suggestions, etc. Pretty handy, I think.  Go get 'em.

My goal is to make my binder this week as well. I feel like I'm out of control already? I bought 15 bottles of Gatorade and I don't even like Gatorade. Hopefully my husband or kids do?
