Putting it all together

So I am just starting out on this whole coupon/save money/Internet paying me thing. I figured the best way to keep it all together is to start up a blog. I am VERY new to couponing and I'm actually getting rather addicted...I think my husband will divorce me soon if I make him take another trip to Target for the "Pantene" deal....
In all actuality, he has now come to understand how I work the deals that I do, or least pretends to anyway. I put in a LOT of time researching and hunting for the deals that I get and when something does work out, I get so excited.
I have come across many blogs and websites that have helped me in this process and I will do my best to credit each and every one of them as I go.

So....where to start....I guess from the beginning and how I got to where I am today. It all started with I can't even remember how I came across this site, but that is where everything started and snowballed from. I started off checking out all the Freebies...hey, who doesn't like free stuff. From there I found where I was able to print some coupons for Target. After joining some coupon trains, watched the deal talk in the Target and Walmart forums, I began to understand what couponing was all about. There's so much info on that site, that it took me a long time to really get what I'm supposed to do with all these coupons I've been saving and when the best time to use them was. From there, I headed back to slickdeals and watched the deal talk on Target and how to get items for VERY cheap, free, or even overage...BONUS.

I'm not sure how much sense this is making since I'm pretty much Rambling, but if you'd like to know more on how it started, feel free to e-mail Me.

Now....some of the deals that I've come across...I'll start breaking them down and posting what I used to see just how much I'm saving, what I'm stockpiling, and how I make the most of the deals that are out there. I'll gather all that info and post them soon....for now, goodnight, it's time for me to head off to bed.
