A Short Piece on Couponing

Today we discuss: coupons! I love coupons; as a matter of fact, I’m quite certain that if I lived in the United States, I would end up on the Extreme Couponing show. Couponing combines all the things I love: cheap to free items, strategy, organization and saving money. I try to use coupons in Israel as much as I can, but they tend to be lame and don’t help save much money, if any at all. It’s a shame!

When I CAN use coupons, say when I go abroad to the US or other countries, believe you and I, I go overboard on the preparation. I search the web like a mad woman trying to find deals to all the stores I’m planning on visiting: looking through couponing sites, the stores’ sites, their social media and local couponing blogs. I’ve found amazing discounts in the past, from very affordable hotel rooms, to freebies at Victoria’s’ Secret.  I feel like I live the American couponing dream for a slight moment.

 So I’ve said my piece! How about you, do you coupon?
