My new "thing" (I have too many) is couponing. Some people get it, some people don't. I was a non believer until I had no money, nothing in my pantry, and several baby and wedding presents to buy. It started off with just a few coupons, then I found Southern Savers (thanks Whitney for the idea) and off I went. Once I started, I cant imagine shopping any other way. I save so much money, and why pay full price if you dont have too! Now I dont over shop (much) and I am not that person that buys all 100 boxes of pasta, but i do buy a good amount that will last me a while.
