I'm not embarrassed!


I came across an article in the New York Times here, that made me think about how I am becoming obsessed with finding online coupons.  It pains me to have to pay full price for anything.  It's amazing what you can find on the internet.  Some lady in the NYT article even got 40% off from her purchase @ Saks Fifth Avenue.  I have a friend who buys coupons on Ebay and then somehow works the system to where she can almost get things for free.  Recently I bought my boys coats @ Old Navy which retailed for $41, for just $7 a piece (and they weren't even on clearance).  Just thought I'd share.  Is anybody else bargain/coupon shoppers or has any tips?

I'm the Queen of bargains.... it may actually be a sickness- hmmmm I can't buy anything unless it is on sale! Whether it be at the mall or the grocery store I only buy something if it's on sale. Either I'm really cheap or really thrifty :) hopefully the latter!

I'm in the "obsessed" catagory when it comes to coupons and great deals. My best deal lately was buying $315.00 worth of groceries for $80. I do couponsense.com I know there are other sites that are free, but I love this one. It's very organized and easy to use.
