We understand the value of money and we know money does not grow on trees (Mrs. Y secretly wishes money falls off the money tree). There are very few things we pay full price for - internet....and milk. Yes, we said milk. Milk does taste better when it comes in a glass.
Anyways, back to what we were saying, we are known amongst our friends and family as the people who can find a very good deal. We just happen to be very lucky to find certain things at ridiculously cheap prices. One of our friends once said to us: "When you guys get something, it's either free or close to be free".
We are not extreme couponers, but we do use coupons on products that we use. Before we spend money on anything big, we do extensive research and compare prices. We combine coupons, gift cards, deals, credit card cashback to spend the minimum amount of money possible.
Target is one of our favorite places to shop. It is like a treasure hunt when you go through the clearance end aisles. Many things goes down to 50% off, and you never know what you're going to find. Just last week, we found an Ooma that we've been looking at, for half the price. We also actually make money off things we buy at Target. Target sometimes has web coupons that can be used in conjunction with manufacturer coupons, making your purchase free or even better - a money maker. Combine that with shopping apps like Ibotta, you're making quite a bit of money doing your groceries.
So as you can see, we try to minimize the amount of money we spend on ANYTHING we need to buy. Never buy anything full price - there's always a way to make it cheaper.
In our next post, we will talk about some of the bigger purchases we've made and how we got a deal on those things.
