My college roommates used to laugh at me about using coupons, but they never hesitated to enjoy the fruits of all the hours of labor I put in to cutting, filing, and finding deals! I continued to use coupons after I got out of school and got married too. I became a stay at home wife and mother when I was laid off from my job in 2004. Initially I was unable to find another job in our small town, so I decided that my job at that time was to save my family money on everything we buy. I got even more serious about my couponing, and Chefy was thrilled at the savings.
When I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disease, and other health issues, I was able to continue to be a stay at home mom. Through lots of ups and downs, we have been able to maintain a comfortable way of living because of the coupons I collect and the deals I find.
Lots of people have been saving money using apps and digital coupons on their smart phones. I don't have one of those, so I always was left in the dark. Several months ago, some of my friends started talking about the deals they get at Target using the Cartwheel App. After researching it more, I found out that they have that App for my Ipad! I was so thrilled. One of my friends pointed out that there was a coupon to get 50% off Archer Farms Spiral Sliced Ham. The regular price is $2.99/lb, and I was thrilled to check it out! Our target was showing the hams at $1.29/lb, so we didn't think we would get any more savings....We were happily mistaken! Our hams rang up half of the reduced price! We got these hams that had originally been over $22 for less than $6 each!! We bought 4! The deal was supposed to end tonight, but it has been extended to the 16th!
If you enjoy ham, and a good deal, sign up for Cartwheel and run to Target to get your super cheap ham and lots of other good deals too!
