Let me be very clear that my couponing philosophy is simple. I am all about savings, not over purchasing and letting things go to waste. Since I've dabbled in couponing for the past two years, I have learned a lot about what I should and shouldn't buy just because it is a "good deal" because chances are, it will cycle back around again. This adventure is about reducing the output while increasing the input...catch my drift?
