  2. Love your stories, Makayla! While I’m reading this I had visions of the wild-out toddler slamming the freezers doors! We have all had those toddler moments!!! Thank you for sharing your story.

  3. Go Seasonal. If you really don’t use them that often and are just looking to keep them active, purchase things on sale that are seasonal, that you’re going to purchase anyway. For example, right now is when bathing suits are being brought out in clothing stores, and spring cleaning items like mops, buckets, etc at stores like Ace Hardware.

  4. Good find Kathy! Maybe I need to make another trip to Walmart to see if I can find any. Thanks for sharing

  5. Great question Abigail! Well, first of all, if the card in question has no annual fee, it’s probably to your advantage to keep it in your arsenal of credit cards. Doing so helps raise your credit score if you’re adding five or ten dollars to it, every so often, as explained above. One of the biggest factors in your credit score is your credit card utilization rate and the average age of your accounts. Your overall score could take a major hit if you go through with closing that old card. However, closing an old or unused account could save you money if your card has an extraordinarily high-interest rate or miscellaneous fees.

    I can’t give you a “magic” number of days, other than to say I personally would keep my oldest cards (unless they are costing you money) because the AGE of the account matters I think where you’d really take a hard hit in your score is the overall utilization. Canceling a card takes away from your overall credit and will, therefore, raise your utilization among the other cards (in total). Here is an article you can read that explains it a lot better than I can from Credit Karma

  7. Good Morning NTETEKTIB, I’m glad it’s being useful to you!

  8. Thanks, Kayleigh! I am on a strict budget and this option works for me. Least Amount going out while maintaining my low credit card utilization rate and still keeping the cards active. I’m sure there are other methods. I’m frugal and this keeps me within my budget.

  9. Your Welcome Angela

  10. I agree, so easy to earn swag bucks through them.

  11. Bless you, for taking care of disabled adults!

  12. I miss the days when double coupons were the norm and triples were something we knew would happen, so we saved up all of our good c/o’s, waiting for the day!

  13. I like how you added, “even hubby”… mine does it too!

  14. If your home is like mine, you can never have enough cat liter! We have 6 (yes SIX) adopted rescue cats who share our home!

  15. If you’d like, you can click on my profile and contact me with your city and state and I will look into it for you.

  16. I’ve had to do that a time or two. The family gets a little impatient when they get caught in the crossfire of mom finding great deals!

  17. Right there with ya Kriss! I only coupon at WalMart when it’s worth my frustration.

  18. Donna, Extreme couponing and massive stockpiling were common prior to the airing of the extreme couponing show. However, I’m afraid those days are long gone! You can still extreme coupon, just not to the extent we use to be able to do it. Now it takes a lot of careful planning. The show “extreme couponing” pretty much ruined it for everyone. Participant’s on that show gave the Company’s a Step-By-Step guide on how to shut us down. Once Company’s figured out what and how it was done, they quickly started putting up roadblocks.

    Like I said, it can still be done but will require more on your part; multiple trips to the store, broadening your comfort zone to shop in other cities, always having your coupon binder so you can take advantage of clearance. Maybe I need to make an article specifically on this?

  19. I have to agree with you Trisha. Both the coupon wallet and the coupon binder have their own benefits. I carry both!

  20. Triples have become less and less frequent. I get them here, maybe once a year. I personally blame the “Extreme Couponing” show.

  21. Amen to that! The convenience is such a welcome gift in my hectic schedule!

  22. That’s frustrating when none of your surrounding stores double. 🙁

  23. Hey $3 is $3!!! That’s 2 dozen eggs, a gallon of milk or a package of cheese! It all adds up! Good work!

  24. Erica, How long have you been couponing?

  25. Wow Amy! That’s an awesome deal on Hair Color!! Over the years Ms. Clairol and I have become Best buds!
