Welcome to Coastal Couponer. I’m always trying to save money and clipping coupons seemed to work.  Finding out I was not an extreme couponer was pretty easy.  I was way too busy with work and other chores to keep up with clipping, sorting, filing, shopping, documenting, and storing.  I found an easier way for ME to save money, get great deals and keep everyone around here happy.

I have a passion for weather that I can’t explain.  It must stem from my childhood but I’m not entirely sure.  StormChaser TV is a favorite of mine.  Crafting comes naturally and I think I have an eye for photography.  My ideal vacation is cruising and I need to be on a boat at least once a year.  Can you see it yet?  I have expensive hobbies.

Unfortunately, my job doesn’t pay for the house, utilities, insurance and  everything I like to do in my spare time.  I don’t believe in credit cards.  After paying off all the cards I qualified for and maxed out in college, I decided I’d always try to pay cash.  That’s why I started clipping coupons.

Saving money while shopping is good, but you know what’s even better?  Making money!  I’ve been trying various ways to earn money from home.   Adding extra income in addition to using coupons has made a huge difference in my life.  Now, throw in trying to lose weight and get the house organized and you can see why I’ll never be a “coupon queen”.

This blog has been moved from Blogger to WordPress.  It’s still a work in progress until I can figure out how to make it easy on the eyes.  I appreciate your patience.
