Couponing Tag!

I thought it would be fun to do a couponing tag here on the blog since it is such a huge part of what I do each week! This might answer any questions you have about my couponing- but if anyone has other  questions feel free to e-mail me or ask right here in the comments- I'd be happy to answer your couponing questions!

I watched a Youtube video by IslandCouponGal (who I watch regularly) as well as 2LittleDolls and thought I would turn their tag video into blog form- so here it is!

1) How did you start Couponing?

I started couponing after watching some of a marathon of Extreme Couponing on TLC. I then went online and found the KrazyCouponLady website as well as some of my other favorite bloggers and youtubers! I had to try it myself!

2) How do you feel after Couponing?

I feel good! Who wouldn't when you walk out of a store making money?!

3) Do you have any weird habits after Couponing?

I do! I come home and make everyone guess how much I paid for everything in my bag. I also lay everything out nicely and take a picture for my blog =)

4) What items do you have the most of in your stockpile?

Definitely hair products. Shampoo and conditioner are so easy to find for free! I've been getting quite the collection of oral care too.

5) What was the most your bill ever was & how much was it after coupons?

I don't know...I would say I generally at least cut it in half, let's say $80 and I got it down to less than $40.

6) Do you ever experience "couponers regret?"

Not unless I make a mistake- then I get angry for sure!

7) What is/are your favorite item(s) to buy?

Anything free! I love getting makeup for cheap or free. 

8) How do you store your coupons?

I use the binder method! I store them by categories already clipped and ready to go.

9) Do you prefer to shop alone or do you have a Couponing buddy?

I definitely prefer to shop alone so I can concentrate on what I'm doing.

10) Who is your favorite YouTube couponer?

It's a toss up between IslandCouponGal and 2LittleDollz- love them both!

11) Briefly describe your worst Couponing experience...

I had a woman in Walmart make me pull every item out of my cart to prove I had bought the item that was on the coupon. She then proceeded to tell everyone in line behind me that they had gotten in the wrong line. Cranky old lady!

12) Are you a proud couponer?

What do you guys think? =)

13) How many hours per week do you devote to Couponing? (clipping coupons, planning, shopping, etc)

I would say at least 2 honestly depends on the week and how much I plan to shop and buy. It takes awhile for me to clip and sort the coupons, but planning and shopping are a breeze!

14) Which store is your favorite to coupon at? Least favorite? Easiest/hardest to coupon?

I LOVE CVS! I would shop there always, every time with coupons. I have yet to try Walgreens but I've heard it's difficult. I like Rite Aid but don't go there too often. Walmart is okay, and so is Staples- it just depends on the week!

15) If you weren't able to coupon, what hobby of yours would replace the time you devote to Couponing?

I don't know what would replace couponing but I do love to scrapbook!

16) How long have you been Couponing?

Less than a year- I believe I started in November or December. 

17) How much would you estimate your stockpile to be worth?

Man, I have NO least $500...

18) Where is your stockpile "housed"? Located? Multiple locations or all in one place?

I have it all inside my closet- but in different areas of my closet. I am planning on doing a blog post on this next week so you will get to see it then!

19) What is one item that you absolutely refuse to ever pay for again?

Definitely oral care! Toothpaste, toothbrushes, floss.

20) What item are you hands-down most proud of that you've gotten for free or cheap (after using coupons and/or store rewards)?
