I have been going to a mommies forum for my local area for a little bit and since going to the site have been seeing how much money these women save by clipping coupons and shopping smart. They are able to have a stock of food and supplies for less then what I spend every week. So I decided to start trying to do the same. I started a newspaper subscription this week for the weekend addition and there were $322 worth of coupons in the paper today. I also went this morning to buy 4 additional papers. I then went to Harris Teeter (our local grocery store) 4 times today because they were having triple coupons up to $.99 face value until today. I ended up spending $212.82 in groceries but saved $261.43 so a total value of groceries adding up to $474.25. I have also started to shop at CVS and have started my stockpile from there my last trip I purchased: 2 secret deodorant, 2 pantene pro-v conditioners, 2 pantene pro-v shampoos and 2 bottles of dawn dish soap. My total out of pocket was $1.52!
