Trade it!
I've picked up another hobby. I need another hobby like I need a hole in the head, but I'm doing it anyway. Lately, I've been hooked on bargain shopping. I've been clipping coupons & finding amazing deals. I found some Christmas presents that would have been $35 & $50, but I got one for free & the other for $2.00. It's so much fun finding these deals & I get all excited after grocery shopping when I read the total savings of $50.00 at the bottom of the receipt. I'm a dork, but whatever.

So, one thing I've noticed about coupon clipping is that I don't use half of the stuff I clip (or print, really). They are mostly for products that we don't buy & would never buy, so here I am, left with an organizer (yes, I now have a coupon organizer & I'm about to get a second one. Another testament of my dorkiness) full of useless coupons. Or so I thought.

I'm trading these suckers. I'm now one of those hard core traders that has their own coupon trading site. But you know, in the two days I've had my site up, I've traded coupons that I would never ever use for coupons that we use all of the time. It's a great little system.

Are you kidding me? I didn't know such a thing existed. That's awesome! What a great idea!
