My New Challenge – COUPONING

I wanted to share this video because this is the new thing that I am trying to do. It is unbelieveable how much money you can save on stuff that you buy every day, and stuff you may not use but can get for free sometimes, you can donate to food pantries. I learned about this from a few friends who buy over $100 in groceries and spend less than $10!!! I am new to this, but yesterday we went through out flier and gathered our coupons and we spent $48 but saved $55!!! We cut our grocery bill in HALF! I got sour cream for free and plastic cups for 50 cents, plus others. I wanted to share the things I am slowly learning… we’ll start with this video (if it works).

    Here are some of the deals I got this week (I’m excited, if you cannot tell):

    – 1 Mission Tortillas = FREE (normally $3.19)
    – 2 Oikos Yogurt 5.3 oz. = $ .50 ea. (normally $1.89 ea.)
    – 2 Birdseye Frozen veggies = $ .28 ea. (normally $2.55 ea.)
    – 2 Buitonii fresh Pasta = $1.08 ea. (normally $4.15 ea.)
    – 1 Buitonii sauce = $1.02 ea. (normally $4.25 ea.)
    – Activia 4-count yogurt = $1.00 (normally $2.50)
    – 3 Dole 8-oz. pineapple = $ .34 ea. (normally $1.15)
    – HT bag salad = FREE (from coupon spit-out) (normally $2.59)

    I must be doing something right… that 1/5 the price!!! I only paid 20%!

    How you do it? You shop the sale flier and then match your coupons to what is on sale. Many items have coupons online too! Luckily, my store doubles everything .99 cents and under. And obviously you cannot do this with everything, but match coupons to what you can. I also use a site called couponmom.com where they match up the best prices to coupons, so it takes all the work out of it. You don’t have to spend hours doing this (although I am and I’m having a blast – becomes like a game).

    And for those who think they won’t see savings (because I was one of them before now)… everyone buys toilet paper, paper towels, toothpaste, deodorant, some bread items, some meat products. And if you think it’s only for people who buy junk food, look at my list of great deals above and there isn’t anything horrible on there… tortillas, frozen veggies, yogurt, salad, fresh pasta & sauce, and pineapple.

    It’s worth it!
