Coupon Lingo

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

When starting to coupon it can be very overwhelming. There is so much information and a lot of things to learn. When looking at websites that post deals, like some of the ones that I have talked about HERE and HERE, there will always be coupon abbreviations. This can only add to the confusion. Hopefully I can help clear up any confusion. Please feel free to ask any questions. I want to help, and I want you to love to coupon!
