I can't believe 2011 is over! So how did I do with my coupon savings this year?
Well November and December were busy, busy months with the birth of Adeline! Needless to say, my mind wasn't focused on couponing. However, I was still able to save quite a bit of money even in the busiest of times! How did I do it?
-Kept my coupons close-by to clip quickly and hand over to hubby when he was running to the grocery store.
-Kept restaurant coupons in the diaper bag for when we were on-the-go.
-Made sure my coupon binder was organized before I had Adeline, knowing that would be crucial to still saving money during her newborn time.
-Waited to buy items online (like cloth diapers and our birth announcement/Christmas cards) until I had a promo code to save money.
It really isn't impossible to save money during the busy times of life. Difficult, yes, but totally doable.
