My name is Linda and I live in Kent, WA. I am new to the whole coupon world also.
Finding other people who coupon in this area has been a challenge.
Sites like Hot2Coupon, Northwest Coupon Lady, The Krazy Coupon Lady and WeUseCoupons.com is another good one.
I am just about finished putting my coupon notebook together. The Krazy Coupon Lady website helped with that, they have printouts for a notebook, etc.
I hope that helps. Love to blog with you if you would like and we can learn together.
