My goal for June is to start using coupons. So many times I have coupons that are for products I don't normally buy so they do me no good. But lately I have found a few that have been of products I actually buy on a regular basis.

My husband has been taking his lunch to work. He likes the Minute Rice in a cup. It's microwavable and comes in a two pack. The wrapping had a coupon for $1 off 2 rice packs. So since I buy 2 at a time anyway, this would be a coupon I would use.

I actually remembered to use the coupon - unlike my $5 off The Sims 3 coupon from Target I totally forgot about. Any money saved from using coupons goes into the $20 challenge.

So I'm up to $14.76 cash but need to add my Gamefly membership that I would have paid for June to the kitty.

Hopefully I will be using more coupons in the coming weeks and saving a lot more money.

    Hi, Lynn. I saw Minute Rice in a cup at Big Lots the other day. I think I have bought it before in 2-packs and it seems like it was only about $1.00 for a 2-pack. If you really want to get into coupons, check out thriftyfun.com. You have to register for a free membership and log in to get to the coupons section. You can swap coupons with other folks. My profile there is crazyliblady. What coupons are you looking for? Maybe I have some.

    Welcome to couponing. It's a great way to lower the cost of shopping.

    I live in Florida and also have to think about hurricanes or any emergency that could show up. Last year, I bought a box (6 pack) of Cup of Noodles. Each one is a generous large cup with noodles and veggies and you just add boiling water and let it set for a while. I tried them for the first time and found them to be very filling and also great for an emergency. Great buy also.
