One of my most favorite things to do, aside from couponing of course, is taking pictures! For some reason I just feel compelled to document things around me by taking pictures and sharing them with the world! Well… the Instagram world anyway lol. I got inspired to do this photo a day challenge by Fat Mum Slim. She started the ‘photo a day’ challenge [which is awesome!] and I loved participating. I figured, why not have one for couponers too?!
As you’ll see in the picture above, I mixed in ‘regular’ photo prompts with coupon related photo prompts. The point is to have fun taking pictures and share them with your fellow coupon loving chicks!
How does it work?
It’s easy peasy! Follow along each day with the picture above [you should download it or keep it on your phone]. It gives you a word each day that will ‘prompt’ you to take a picture of something that the word inspires.
For example, #1 [or day #1] is ‘Fun!’, you would then take a picture on September 1st of something you find fun. It could be coupon related or not :)
By the way, if you see this post on day 10 [or whenever] please join anyway! We’d love to see your pics :P
How and where do I share?
