Couponing is a Lifestyle

CouponKatie Local Living, Money 11 Comments


Coupon Katie is a money saving addict. We invited her to Knoxify so that she could show you how to save money in Knoxville.

It is mostly a lifestyle about planning. Planning meals, planning shopping trips, planning how to use your money.

It is a lifestyle void of brand loyalty.

Okay, I have two…
Scrubbing Bubbles Mega Shower Foamer and Tide Laundry detergent. I totally fell into the manufacturers trap, I tried both of them because I had great coupons for them and now I am addicted. Beware.

Couponing is a lifestyle full of creative ways to save on dining out and entertainment. For example: We ate at Chick-fil-a FREE for breakfast every Thursday last month.

THE HUSBAND will tell you it is a lifestyle of getting better products at a cheaper price than the generic, and it is. His favorites are toilet paper and peanut butter.

It is a lifestyle that about how little you spend not how much you save. It is a lifestyle you should ease into.

And here’s how:
Just start clipping all the coupons you see and watching your favorite stores ads. You’ll start seeing your savings and that will motivate you to plan your shopping trips even more. Before you realize it you will be that person in the checkout lane that everyone sort of rolls their eyes at because you hand the cashier twenty coupons to scan.

On Sunday, grab the Knoxville News-Sentinel (subscribe now and save a few pennies), there will be two coupon inserts. Clip ALL the coupons, go to and we will tell you where and how to use them. Lifestyle changes don’t happen overnight, so start slow and before you know it you’ll be handing out FREE toothpaste at dinner parties (but that’s a completely different post).

And this post wouldn’t be serving you if I didn’t let you in on a great deal or give you something for FREE…so I’ll do both.
