Here’s a sampling of but a few of the coupons I’ve cut in the past few days. Extreme Couponing on TLC fascinates me and I must delve into the world of coupon obsession. Okay, mine won’t be an obsession, but it is really cool to get items for free or for a drastically reduced cost. I don’t aspire to even come anywhere near the savings of the coupon collecting elite on TLC’s Wednesday night show, but I did use 20 coupons when I purchased my groceries this morning.
All these coupons (and the fact that they fell out of the paper clip that secured them while I was shopping, and I had to re-collect them all from the Commissary floor) tells me I must come up with some kind of tote for them. Which leads me to sewing – but of course, doesn’t everything lead to sewing?! Enter the May/June 2011 issue of Creative Machine Embroidery magazine.
Ta-Da! My next sewing project. I already have the fabric selected from my stash and I’m ready to go. I must take care of some personal family business for the next few days, but hopefully I will have my new coupon clutch ready for next week’s grocery shopping trip.
Do you clip coupons? If so, in what do you carry your coupons?
