Rookie of the Day

It's a banner day.

I found my first coupon to share with the world.

You see, in the world of moms saving money, there are certain 'celebrity bloggers' that the rest of us can only aspire to be like. Deal Seeking Mom and Money Saving Mom are two of my personal favorites.

Then there are the thousands of deal-seekers out there who can simply sniff the wind, and they know what direction the next deal is coming from. These coupon-savvy bloggers have a network of underground deal-sharing that would make the CIA envious. They work with precision, skill, and unbelievable speed in spreading the word about savings.

Well, yesterday, this newbie couponer may have become the newest member of the team. I happened upon this Buy One Get One Free Glade coupon (which is a great deal...and I hear you should wait to print it out) in my inbox and thought, "Hey, why not send it along to a few other blogs. No doubt, they discovered it months ago, but it doesn't hurt to try."

And so I dropped a quick e-mail to several of my favorite sites.

Nothing could have prepared me for the sheer delight I would experience when, upon checking these sites, I discovered MY NAME highlighted in that lovely linky blue, thanking little old ME for leading them to this coupon. I feel like I should thank the academy...

And so, if you are a fellow couponer who happened upon my little site today because of this, drop me a line. Say hey. I'd love to meet you!

Meanwhile, I'll be sniffing the wind.

update: Found a deal here! Go quickly to get a 15 or 20% off coupon at Old Navy before they run out! Thanks, Anca!

Yup, found your site through your coupon find! Congrats! I'm also new to couponing but I'm hooked. Especially hooked on CVS.

I found you through Deal Seeking Mom. I like your humorous style - especially the bit about the CIA. :) Thanks for the great coupon!

Hey, I found you through Deal Seeking Mom. I totally agree with you. There are four or five blogs I check regularly and you mentioned two of them. These ladies rock the deals! Thanks for the great coupon find.

Loved the CIA line! So very true! Perhaps you have a future career in that area.

Thanks for the Old Navy tip, Kaley. I blogged it and thanked YOU!

I am new to couponing and I think there are a few "pros" in my neighborhood, nearly all the good stuff is gone by the time I make it to the store.

So...

Sunday morning I went early - really early to use my B1G1 free coupons at Walgreens. I combined them with two Easy Saver Coupons and a two other coupons and paid less than $4 for 4 glade air fresheners!!

Totally happy with my deal and my house smells great. Thanks!
