K is for the Krazy Coupon Lady

Remember S&H Green Stamps?  Even if you don't remember them from your childhood, you must remember them from The Brady Bunch.  Remember the time the family saved up all those stamps and then the girls wanted a sewing machine and the boys wanted a boat (?)  and the 2 sides could not agree how to "spend" the trading stamps.

They ended up buying a television set for the family room.  The kind that had rabbit ears and probably had 3 channels.

I do not know if they even have S&H Green Stamps anymore.

Thank goodness for the Krazy Coupon Ladies.

In recent years I've really started using coupons.  My biggest challenge was not clipping them but remembering to take them with me to the store.  And once I got to the store, being organized enough to match them to the product and present them to the cashier.  It was enough to make me sweat!

I could plug in the fan just thinking about it.

But then I discovered

That krazy lady will show you everything you need to begin.  Don't be overwhelmed.  Just take it one step at a time.

Nope.  I don't hoard.  I don't clear shelves.  I don't buy items we do not need.  That's why I'm not on those extreme coupling shows.  It's not interesting enough for television when I have $50 in coupons.  But it's interesting to me!

Here's my coupon binder.  I clip coupons on Sunday from the newspaper.

Slip them in the page protector.  I use those baseball trading card pocket protector sheets.  It looks daunting but honestly it's not.

I can never find coupons for fresh produce or fish.  But if I can save enough money each month to pay for the cell phone bill I"m happy.

So check out their website.  

Tell them I sent you.

And they'll say "WHO?"  They don't know me from Adam.  Or Marcia.  Or Greg.


  1. I would love to do this, but I always thought it was too complicated. I'll check out the site. Thanks for the link, and happy couponing!

  2. I'll just leave this comment and then pop over for a look. I live in England. I don't know if they work here, but I sure as the solid floor under my feet want to find out. Happy blogging!

  3. This is awesome! I'm so bad with coupons...I'll have them in my pocket and then forget to use them. I actually used to work for a company that makes large coupon books for 8 years and probably used their coupons no more than 10 times. Awful isn't it?

  4. I'm a crazy coupon lady too!! My binder is my best friend (not really, but kind of)! I have a couponing website too -- although it's no where near as awesome as KCL! I love finding others who coupon like I do, cause most folks think I'm just plain crazy :)

  5. I never have enough coupons for a binder, but I'd love to! Mine are all stuffed in a coupon envelope thingy and I have use it all the time. The joy at seeing the amount I saved in coupons is so worth the few minutes of clipping!
