I knew that coupons were big in the United States but I wasn't aware of how many great sites/deals are out there for Canadians too. Two online coupon sites that the girls swear by are http://save.ca/ and http://brandsaver.ca/. I have ordered my coupons and can't wait for them to arrive, especially the diaper ones. I've begun to pay much closer attention to the coupons available for pick up right in the grocery store and now proudly store them in an envelope in my purse awaiting a chance to use them.
The girls and I did a coupon exchange last week, swaping and sharing coupons that we no longer needed or had extras of. With the coupons this week I saved $3 off my little guys haircut, $1.50 off of pullups and I caved to McD's craving and used the One Can Dine coupon for $4.89 (I love the nuggets which I think the combo regularly is a little over $6). I also signed up for the rewards program at Pampers.ca and have my eye on a couple of gifts for my toddler who's birthday is coming up and a Bounce Dryer Bar (I've always wanted to try one). It's not much but it's a start and by golly there is alot to learn! I would love to hear more tips, trick and advise from other coupon mammas out there.
This week I saved approx: $5.50
If I saved that every week that is $286 in savings/year
