I am a Northern Maine mom, to 3 terrific girls, who has a talent for, and a love of all things related to shopping on a shoe string. As a single mom on a budget, I had to learn how to use coupons long before it was the cool thing to do.

I want to share that skill and give you the ability to learn how to save a buck, or two, or twenty! Couponing may seem overwhelming but if you take baby steps you will find it isn’t as complicated as you think.

On this blog, you will find weekly deals at Rite Aid, Hannaford, Walmart, Target, Shaws, and deals at Amazon. I will post coupons and scenarios for the stores listed, along with throwing in a few hints, tips, and tricks to decrease your costs for everyday items!

Black Friday is my favorite day of the year, and come October and November you will find a lot of deals posted for that one shopping day.

Please look around, ask questions, and remember NEVER pay retail!
