Couponing.... pros and cons...

Yes, I said it. There are cons to couponing.... But the pros are more worth it.

Most of you know that I coupon regularly. I don't really ever pay full price for anything (except some of the organic/nonallergenic foods I need for Everett). I've been couponing for over 2 years now. I've learned a lot over the way.

-never having to pay for deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, feminine products, paper towels, and lots of groceries can end up free if the store doubles coupons,
-knowing when to buy something vs. buying out of necessity and spending too much,
-learning to be organized.
-trying products you normally wouldn't try

-you collect a lot of stuff which leads to a semi-hoarding lifestyle,
-it does take organization and time as well as shopping strategy which means taking time.

We have saved thousands of dollars the past 2 years using coupons.

My warning to you: know what you're getting yourself into! Have a place to store things, carve out time in your day for clipping, organizing and shopping. Be aware that you will never want to pay for the above listed items again....
