About a month or so ago I happened upon this ridiculous TLC program, Extreme Couponing. Anyone else watch this madness?
Adrian and I watched in awe as these folks rung up grocery bills upwards of $600 and paid only a few DOLLARS out of pocket after the use of coupons. I really had no desire to have my whole garage turn into a giant stockpile of more grocery and personal care items than our family could use in a lifetime, but I was interested in tapping in to just a little piece of the savings, if I could figure it out!
We started with the Sunday paper and clipping online coupons, noticing some difference on our weekly grocery bill, but we still had a lot to learn.
This week I attended a great little coupon class from the ladies at Blessed By Bargains, and now Adrian and I have both really caught the coupon crazies!
Adrian hit Kroger up this morning, after we carefully planned out our shopping strategy last night, which included stacking store deals with manufacturer’s coupons. The result was a HUGE 45% OFF our grocery bill!
Just had to share the finished product! Took some time but so worth it. I love helping to save money for our family. Our goal is to cut our monthly grocery budget in half, and I think we’re well on our way after this week.
So, any fellow couponers out there?! Do share! :)
Thanks, again, to the Blessed by Bargains ladies for the inspiration and help! Be sure to check them out for more help!
