I have a friend who is the couponing queen. I actually saw one of her CVS receipts, and from that store only since the beginning of the year, she had saved over $7000! I have to admit, I am a bit jealous. I wish I had the time, patience, and skill to figure couponing out. I went to a class once, but I left so confused that I didn't really get too into it. The best deal I've gotten is a free razor because I figured out one deal and I was quite proud.
About a month back I asked her if she would be interested in swapping stuff. I would give her some of my clothes for some of her stuff. I gave her about 3 bags of summer clothes and here is what she gave me.
Quite cool, huh? I thought so. This is definitely over $100 worth of stuff that I don't have to buy for a while. Then a couple weeks later she brought me a bag of dish soap, allergy medicine, toothbrushes, gum, and some kleenex.
I thought this was a pretty good swap. I have tons of winter clothes that I don't want so I may see if she's up for another swap.
Do you coupon? Do you ever swap stuff like this with others?
