Remember when I casually mentioned that I'm going to start really using coupons and trying to save money? Well, I don't know that I truly explained the extent to which I'm going to try to do this. I've created a binder with sections marked for different coupon categories (poultry, beauty items, soups, etc), and today the trading card binder pages I ordered should be arriving, so I can really organize the coupons.
|Yep, ONE HUNDRED of these suckers.|
In my eyes, this little project should accomplish many things.
- save money! (the big one, obviously)
- fulfill my love of organization (I truly am excited for this part)
- boost my ego (Just like when I get done cleaning the house, or my car, I feel awesomely accomplished. I suspect I'll have that same feeling when I see how much I was able to save.)
Now I just need to figure out how to save a ton of money on things I want/need for running and working out:
|CEP compression tights for my freaking sore calves!|
|RelaxReflect gear for Winter running|
|Knuckle Lights (Thanks Alyssa for the picture)|
|cycling shoes for spin classes (my new love)|
|Superfeet insoles for my running shoes. I'd given up on these|
until I have yet to get my left shoe to fit correctly.
...and etc. etc. You get the point. If you're like me, your wish list is forever long.
Have you had a positive experience with "couponing"?
What's the #1 thing on your running/working out wish list?
Good luck to everyone racing this weekend! Kara, Kari, and Alyssa, I'll be thinking about you!
