Welcome to The Hopkins County Couponer!

A first post is probably supposed to have something fabulous and mind blowing, but i am all new to blogging, so I am just going to say.....

Hi, there!  My name is Misty and I am creating this blog because I couldn't find a coupon blog specific to my home shopping area: Hopkins County, KY.  I'm in no way a veteran couponer, and I am not declaring myself to be THE Hopkins County Couponer.  Far from it.  I chose this title as a spin-off of newspaper titles (ie.  "The Madisonville Messenger" or "The Courier Journal").  In fact, I sort of envisioned creating a Newsletter rather than a blog....but life goes on and a blog has been born!

A little about me....I began couponing after watching TLC's Extreme Couponing in January of this year.  Extreme Couponing led me to google which then led me to a ton of great couponing websites.  Couponing is such an easy way to save money, I wish I had come across it when my kids were infants needing diapers and formula.  Oh, the money I could have saved on diapers alone!  I'm not saying that couponing is easy, there is most definitely a learning curve.  But, once you get the hang of it, it's a great way to save money! 

I have no idea where this blog will take us, but I hope to have fun getting us there!  I just ask that you please bear with me in these early days as I begin to figure out the blog-osphere and how to get around in it.  Thanks again, and happy couponing!
