Recessionista 101: The Coupon Hunter

Being in the shopping ban that I am (yes, I'm not shopping cuz I'm a tad low on funds, lols) there is one aspect of shopping that I've never explored of myself: the coupon hunter side.

I remember when growing up in the 90's my parents would give me safety scissors and the newspaper for me to cut out coupons for groceries. Now, I totally forgot about the existence of those little pieces of paper with codes and loads of special deals and discounts.

Browsing around I found out that even our beloved stores have little hidden coupons to take advantage of. Sites have coupons for stores like Ann Tayor to Buckle to Hot Topic!

So, I guess recessionista rule number - umm ok I forgot the number- would be when shopping take advantage of cute little coupons that can save you some cash especially when shopping for school.
