Welcome to Centsable Couponing – where we use common sense to shop for extreme savings.
I’m Julie, but most people call me Jules. You’ve come to the right place to learn all about ME! While I don’t really care for labels, I answer to quite a few:
Even this lengthy list above doesn’t cover everything I am and do. Stick around and visit my other websites and you are likely to read about many of these subjects at some point. Obviously, I’m a dabbler….
My life of couponing started long before it was fashionable or made popular on cable TV. In fact, cable didn’t even exist when I was first cutting coupons and trying to save money. We would never have dreamed of some of the “deals” that are shown on the extremist “reality” shows of today.
My mom always used S&H green stamps to help pay for extra goodies and gifts. Because of her early teaching, I started looking for deals and savings at a very young age. I was always on the alert for a bargain.
Many times Mom would turn our shopping trips into competitions. We had a list of what we needed and had to see who could find the better deals. It made the drudgery of grocery shopping into a fun excursion. I miss those adventures with her.
Life has been good to me. I am blessed with a loving family, lifelong best friends and had a great childhood. Our home was actually a working cattle ranch. We worked as hard as we played but I wouldn’t have changed a thing. Well, I think I would have preferred to not grow up so soon or at all.
So now that I’m a reluctant adult, I am still living a charmed life. I am happily married to the man who makes me smile every day. He doesn’t complain when he has to move my ever-growing hoard of books or go grocery shopping with me. He even chases a stray turkey or two without griping, much. He’s the love of my life and my rock.
We currently live with my Dad on a much smaller version of my childhood wonderground. Cattle, horses, chickens, turkeys, cats and dogs fill our lives. They provide loads of daily amusement, love and lots of chores! And just so you know, I use coupons and deals when buying the chicken feed and dog treats as well!
Writing has always been a passion of mine right along with saving money. I have dozens of notebooks filled with story ideas and even more with savings scenarios and the like. I love to write about and share the things that shape my thoughts and color my world.
Centsable Couponing was created as a place to learn about saving money. Common Sense is the number one rule around here, we don’t believe in extremes. It is easy to save lots of money without going off the deep-end – does anyone really need 57 bottles of mustard?
Join us in our adventures in saving and let us know what you think. We’d love to hear from you. You can also find me (and sometimes us) at our other blogs or websites.
