In April 2011, I became very interested in couponing to save money for my family. You guessed it…I was watching Extreme Couponing and wanted in on that action!!
During my learning process, I "met" the most awesome blogger, Denise, from Shopper Strategy and she has helped me a LOT with my couponing journey. We've become good friends (even though we've never actually met) and any time I have a question about couponing, stockpiling, or blogging in general, I run to her!!
Denise has asked me to join her in the Boost Your Budget Pantry Challenge and I am super stoked!!
Here's the details:
A group of bloggers are going to attempt to eat from our cabinets, pantry, freezer and stockpile as much as possible and keep our spending for the month to a bare minimum. The catch for me is that I currently do not have a stockpile in either my pantry or freezer because I have been a bad couponer and our financial situation has not been the best lately. I figure this is a great time to start the New Year off right, set a budget, and try to spend the bare minimum. You will get to see a couponer in action from the ground up!!
Shopper Strategy is looking for a few bloggers to co-host this event by hosting the challenge linky on their blogs and doing a post each Monday of the month.
Jan 2nd – Goal Week
Jan 9th – Update
Jan 16th – Update
Jan 23rd – Update
Jan 30th – Final Notes
This is not a “no spend” month, this is a “make do with what you have on hand and spend as little as possible” month. Everybody’s personal goals will be different and we can each set our own rules – the point is merely to challenge ourselves and start off the new year with a boost to our budgets! We’ll also be giving away a $25 Coupon Clutch gift certificate each week to one participant who either leaves a link to a challenge post or a comment about their challenge goals. Won’t you join us?
