Status Report

So far I have collected a bunch of knowledge. Coupons are dancing in my dreams already. When people on the show Extreme Couponing say they think about coupons all day, I believe them! Already I'm constantly thinking of ways to make this work for me. It's weird.

My first, second, and third step in this process was research. I've scoured the web for all sorts of information, and I'm still finding new stuff. What I've found is the first thing to implement is gathering. I have ONE coupon insert! I need more...but given my current circumstances, I cannot afford to go and buy 10 newspapers just because. So I'm going to rely on the generosity of others, and hope that my friends and family can provide me with any extra coupons or inserts they have lying around.

Next would be to figure out some sort of organizational method. I really am feeling the clipLESS method. Except I would potentially alter it a bit. I'm not sure if I would carry all my coupons into the store with me. I don't think I intend to take this couponing to the "extreme", only far enough to save me money right now when I need it most. But I will let you know what works for me when I get that far.

Maybe it all goes well, I will get myself a mini-stockpile. I don't know if my living situation would allow for much more, or my boyfriend for that matter. He loves this idea of me saving money, because he only works part-time, while going to school, but I don't know if he will like it if it takes over our house!

Well, thats all for now. I will keep scouring the web for more useful stuff to post. And I will keep stuff coming, until I have another update.


First and foremost, as the title states, I live in Kansas City. Therefor some of my content will be geared more towards fellow KC residents. BUT most of the general information about couponing is universal. In this post I will share what websites and resources have got me this far.

Couponing Information:


I will add more to this list as I discover them.

Beginning a New Era

If your here, then you've probably seen the show Extreme Couponing, OR your just awesome enough to come across this phenomena by your own means. I recently found the show on Netflix out of complete boredom, and kept watching with sheer fascination. I can't believe how much money there is to save just by clipping coupons, and having a little bit of patience and organization skills. I absolutely had to try it for myself. We are all on hard times right now, and who wouldn't want to cut their food bill 50-100% off? Anyways this Blog will be my chronicles of starting out, and I will try to share everything that I come across, so that new, and experienced couponers may benefit from my experiences.
