pinching my pennies.

i'm the first to admit that i'm terrible at finding the deals. but, seeing as we're financing the start of a new business or two, we're really trying to watch our spending. so, i decided it was time to start clipping coupons. i've only been at it a couple of weeks & i'm absolutely amazed. shopping for groceries is always an expensive process... just the necessities can run us well over a hundred dollars. so you can imagine my surprise when i was able to cut that bill in half. with help from THIS website i clip my coupons, shop for groceries & save a buck, or two, or eighty. oh, & for all you nay-sayers out there... let me point out, that i only buy specific brands, & i don't buy anything just because it's on sale. yet, i'm totally able to feed my family & save me some moola. check out today's receipt:
no, that's not a mistake, i didn't get it mixed up. i really & truly bought an ENTIRE cart full of groceries (including 3 gallons of milk, apple juice, cereal, tri-tip) for a grand total of $64.85. and yes, with $80.93 is savings, i actually saved more than i spent.

  1. That's great! Another one that is also very good is and it's free! I have saved $200 on a shopping trip a few times! It's addicting and the "high" you get is so fun!

  2. i am just doing my 4 week trial for a $1 right now, and i am excited to see how it goes. especially since i am moving to manhattan, and we are really going to need to pinch those pennies!

  3. I wanted to do this a while back but then changed my mind and completely forgot about it. Think I will look into and do it this time. Thanks for the reminder!

  4. I love The Grocery Game and sites to save lots of money!

  5. Wow, congratulations. Tanks for passing the link on to us as well.
