Couponing helped me get out of debt
What ever the reason may be one thing is for sure, cutting coupons and chasing deals surely help cut back on expenses.
I recall back in 2012 preparing my spreadsheet placing all of my expenses and seeing my new budget was frightening.
Right then we started to do our research on how to coupon at places like Publix, CVS and Walgreens. We started getting a few items to see if this really works and I was instantly hooked once I saw how much we saved.
Shopping using coupons surely helped us save money which we would use to pay some of our debt. It is strange how a hard moment in our lives became a blessing. By starting Dave Ramsey baby steps it open doors for us to coupon and years later it open many other opportunities.
Not at all in fact the method Dave Ramsey shares are very simple yet a bit strange. besides that they are the best ones I have ever used that works.
We learned to coupon since we notice groceries was a high expenses and in order for us to make that work we knew couponing could be the best way for our family. We weren’t sure at the time if couponing would work since we had no experience with it, but we were determine.
To be honest back in 2012 when we started our journey to get out of debt we couldn’t afford the course, I read so many great tips some experiences some even share all of the steps, how they did it and how they did it step by step. I gather all of that information and started to do each baby step on my own.
Couponing was a big part on how we were able to save and cut back on this expense. In fact we had more to show for, while paying almost nothing. But that alone wouldn’t be enough to cut back on other expenses since we wanted to use the money we are saving to apply it to our debt. Once we tackle and learn about couponing we then started to cut back on other ways possible. I shared a more detailed list to help you cut back on other areas as well, this list helped us reach our goal a lot quicker. (click here for the list)
