New Years Resolutions..

So have you thought about any New Years Resolutions yet? I think mine will be to get
more organized in 2011. Also to use more coupons. This year I have been following alot of coupon blogs and learned a lot from them. Any of you all clip coupons?
I kept track of what I saved starting in February of last year and was amazed
that I saved 512.00 this year using mostly grocery coupons. But there are tons more ways to save with coupons and I even bought a handy little organizer called the couponizer. My son's girlfriend was even impressed by it.
I also read a lot of newsletters sent from coupon blogs and here are a few sites
that I follow.. Clippin with Carrie, The Couponizer,
The Crazy Coupon Lady, and The Coupon Mom. The Coupon Mom is pretty good because she will match up stores and coupons in your local area. She also has a weekly drawing for free groceries. Besides coupons, I love to enter sweepstakes
and blog contests. In the last year I won several best selling books, gift cards,
a pillow pet, and other goodies. Besides the coupons, and sweepstakes I like to
do online surveys and have earned several amazon, blockbuster and other gift cards.
Sometimes they send me items to review and I get to keep the items. It's a lot of fun.
Well have you decided what your resolution will be yet? Or do you bother setting one?
Whatever it may be I wish you luck and happiness in 2011.

Wow! That's a lot of savings by using coupons! I'm not good with coupons. I end up buying something I don't need because I have a coupon for it. Wishing you a wonderful 2011. laurie

Stopped by from Melinda's. Your links are great and I will try them in the new year. Happy and healthy 2011 to you and your family. P.S. It's easy to change the background.
