I know sometimes you hear that you can't really save money by using coupons. I've read articles that say that and I've heard people say that. But, I have been clipping coupons since I was 18 (9 years now!) and I can tell you, they are wrong. You can save a ton of money using coupons. Take a look. (sorry for the blueness! my battery was low!)

Awesome, huh? So, starting Friday, I'm going to have a weekly linky party. I think I'm going to go with "Frugal Friday". We'll see. It will be a way to share your weekly savings, or any money saving tips you might have. I hope to see you there!

YES YES YES, you sure can save lots of $$$ by clipping coupons! I've being doing that for over 2 years and now I don't buy nothing (or almost!) if I don't have a coupon. The printable coupons are also very helpful. I always go see if there are any coupons available before I hit the mall! I'll be back on Friday to link how I organize my coupons. Stop by when you have a sec to enter my giveaway!
