Welcome to Coupons Over Cash! My name is Megan and I am a 25-year-old couponer, coming to you from Southern Maryland. As a recent college graduate with massive amounts of out-of-state tuition debt, who moved out of their parent’s home a little early, and who refused to be in any form of unnecessary debt, couponing has done so much for me.
I started on this coupon journey in May, 2015 when I realized I wasn’t saving a lot of money while living on my own. I had always been fascinated with Extreme Couponing, and wanted to see if I could do the same.
In one year, I have a built stockpile full of many items and it is so comforting not having to run out of everyday essentials. Since I started couponing, I’ve also paid off a car I purchased when I first entered college, and I am in the process of building a house with my boyfriend. Coupons may just be little pieces of paper to some, but coupons have allowed me to support myself and the decisions I’ve made.
Now that I’m experienced couponer, my philosophy is this: If it goes down the drain, it might as well be cheap! Think about it… toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, toilet paper, makeup, deodorant, mouthwash, tampons, baby wipes, (and so much more) are all money down the drain. Literally!
There are so many ways to be successful in the couponing world, and I plan to share easy deals, some tips & tricks, and my experiences, so that YOU can become a deal hunter as well. Trust me, once you see that you’ve saved 95% on a transaction, you’ll start to question why you hadn’t begun couponing sooner! Let’s get started!
