Couponing/Stockpiling Vent- I NEED HELP!!! PIOG
What do you stock pile on? I did my first coupon spree the other day and at the time it seemed like i save SOOOOOO much money. But now looking back on it, I think I spent more than normal.... I got a lot of things I wouldnt normally get and actually told my SO that we can get it and give it to the food bank... well that is all fine and dandy but now i have no more food money budgeted out for the rest of the month... I actually had to dip into my savings (granted it was less than a dollar over) to purchase all the food.... so I have a new outlook on my couponing ways. I am only going to get coupons for foods that I need. I recieve food stamps so I try not to go over that. Well I wont get any more til the seventh of next month... AND IM OUT OF MILK!!!!!!!!! I have talked to SO and we agreed to only use coupons on food we will need, but we do want to start a stockpile for other necessities. We got 10 things of dish soap for $10 and it is deals like that we want to stock pile, but it is hard living paycheck to paycheck already.... Thoughts? Words of wisdom here? Thanks!
