If you've been reading my website, you already know what an effort I've made to start saving money. And the response has been tremendous!
What I think is amazing is the knowledge and kindness coming out of our own community. I drove into work today to catch up on a few things...and look what I found sitting on my desk! It's a coupon binder from Delly's Deals!
Delly has been one of my coupon coaches, and this year, I hope to share her knowledge with you. Delly hosts coupon workshops, too. Her next one is Saturday, January 21st at the Northeast Regional Library in Wilmington at 1 p.m. The cost is $12.

You know, when I told my parents that I was couponing... my dad snickered to my mom and said, "This is the girl who wouldn't even shop at Walmart when she was a kid and now she wants to coupon."
But, I got tired of seeing my money being thrown away. It seemed like every trip to the store would be $100 or more. A trip to Costco or Sam's could easily cost $200 if I wasn't paying attention. It just seemed like madness... and really, I am surprised I kept it up for so long. But, this year, my husband is going back to school. We are getting ready to start a family (God willing). And so, all of my focus is going to saving money, paying off debt, and getting ahead.
So, I think my dad will get a kick out of the things to come this year. Hope you'll join me, too!

I would love to get one of them, I need to start saving, I know what you are talking about. Everytime I get a coupon I lose it, or forget it, where can I get on ?

Michelle, Hip2save also has a coupon binder, they even have a page that is a front sheet for the binders. I love to use mine. I just wish that it was a zippered binder. Alas, it's not, so I do what I can!! Good Luck couponing!! BTW, Piggly Wiggly DOES accept coupons, just NOT internet printables!!!

Also, Forgot to mention...I order my coupons out of FL at wholecouponinserts.com....it is very reasonable and a whole lot better coupons and 10x more! and hardly no junk adds. I buy the 10 pk. which means 10 of each insert. So when something is free, I get 10 of them....Yes I have 18 bottles of body wash, and 28 bottles of dawn and so forth...I am running out of space...LOL
