Let me start off by saying that I don't stockpile because I think "the end of the world is near" and no, I don't have a bombshelter in my backyard. Also, stockpiling and hoarding are 2 different things...depending on how you go about it. Stockpiling is what you do when an item can be had at a great price or free. It can significantly lower your costs on future shopping trips. For example, I recently stocked up on a body wash that usually runs $3.99. It is an item that I buy regularly and often have $1 off 1 coupons for.
So you're ready to start couponing? Maybe you have watched the Extreme Couponing show on TLC, heard about how much you can save from others or you're tired of looking at that bank statement and realizing that you're spending nearly as much on toiletries and groceries as you are on rent. No matter what you are ready to hit the ground running...but where do you start?
In couponing there are abbreviations and acronyms everywhere! It's almost like being in the military...almost. As a little reference guide to get you started, here are some some of the most commonly used ones. You're bound to come across them and I definitely use them in my blog.
