So I think it's a common goal of everyone's to buy everything at the lowest possible price.. and I'm here to share a few tips on coupon-ing for your home.
Every store has a e-mail news letter and every store would love to
That's pretty much the extent of how I coupon. I work a full-time job; and like most, only have so much time. I heavily depend on the money saving mom blog to tell me what's up. :)
Here's a prime example of how I integrate coupon-ing into home decorating:
I received a $10 off when you spend $30 and a 15% everything from Kohls in the mail. I wasn't too extremely excited for them, but I held onto them in-case.
Note: I would recommend always hanging onto coupons no matter what.
Don't get me wrong. These are good coupons, but I really didn't need to go spend
$30 $20 dollars.
But lo-and-behold.. the next week I got a $10 off anything at Kohls in the mail. These are my favs! I ran down to Kohls in an attempt to spend exactly $10 and walk away with something free.
Long story short - I got too excited and wanted too many things.
All things I needed.. so it was ok. I hit my $30 total with a new kitchen rug, some clearance bowls, and a kitchen towel. My ending transaction amount was $8.16. And of course good ol' Kohls let me know that I saved $59.39 through the use of all my coupons, clearance picks, and sale items.
Here's my new rug! Previously, I had nothing and it was killing my feet!
And my new bowls-left (on clearance) versus my chipped old ones I wanted to replace-right.
And my happy kitchen - rug, bowls, towel and all.
And a quick side note:
Had I not found anything I wanted for myself at Kohls.. I still would've found a generic cute gift (for under $10 so that I could still get it for free) and saved it for Christmas.
PS. It is definitely time to start saving/buying for Christmas. Though I have no idea what most people will want.. if the price is right and I know it will be liked then I"ll grab it and save it.
Hope this helps! Please share your thoughts on decorating on a budget. Or coupon sites you love to stalk!
