I have to brag

The past few months I guess you could say that I have a new hobby. I have been couponing and looking for great deals for grocery shopping. I never been much of a coupon person, just too much of a hastle but I started just recently. I have had such great luck and it is actually fun to shop.

One of my first shopping trips I spent $50 and I saved $120. I was so excited. I think my family loves it too, because they get some things that I have never before bought because they are frivilous and not needed but what do you say when you get them for FREE.

I have had so many fun trips with this where I have ended up spending no money because everything ended up being FREE. I must admit my kids get tired of helping me out with the coupons going through lines but they sure enjoy the benefits of it.

If any of you are interested and are tired of grocery shopping and spending too much money, let me know and I will tell you my great secret. I don't know how this will work when I am back in school but we shall see.

Hey I'll bite. I only buy bulk basics though like flour, sugar, etc. No milk and eggs obviously :) But I have a weakness for fresh fruits and veggies. Without a garden this year I am spending a fortune. Will your system help me?

Yeah for couponing! Joey loves it too because he gets all the "new" products like you said. It's getting tiring for me, but I'll keep doing it. I save too much money to stop. I just don't have a lot of the energy I need to do it. Oh well!

Wow! That is awesome--I do check all the sales at grocery stores and shop accordingly--but by no means have I come home from the grocery story spending nothing!

I've been known to use a coupon or two, but I've yet to score the FREE cart of groceries deal. I don't know how you do it. Amazing!

I don't know how you do it. Holy CROW it seems like it takes so much time. I have been trying but man oh man I am not sure I can keep doing it I do love it but to hunt down the sales and coupons and then get to the stores to buy it is a whole new world. Love ya sis keep it up.
