My Adventures in Coupon Shopping!!!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with BSO

Hello all!  In this economy, we are all searching for ways to scrimp and save.  I have decided that the first place I could start was at the Grocery store.   I have been clipping coupons for years, as I'm sure all of you are as well.  But, are we really taking advantage of the power of coupon saving? 

So, over my next few posts, I will be documenting my adventure into the world of coupon shopping!  I read the following blogs; (these have been highly beneficial)

www.thecouponmom.com

Also, the following video shows how The Coupon Mom bought $114 worth of groceries for $1.62!!!!!!!

I have made myself a "Coupon Binder" to organize all of my coupons.  It is just a simple 3 ring binder with clear plastic sheet protectors inside.  I used my beloved label maker to index my categories such as baby, pantry, cleaning etc.   

I have also designated one hour on Sunday morning to clip coupons and plan my weekly meals.    This week, I am setting a goal of reducing my weekly grocery bill from $100 to $50.....including diapers and formula.....

Check back to see my progress!!

Coupons can really be a money saver, but it takes the time to search for them and cut them out! Good luck!

I love coupons, I drive my husband and son crazy because I don't buy anything unless it's on sale or I have a coupon!  But I have saved a truckload of money!  The only problem sometimes is I forget my coupon holder or left it at home in a different purse!  I like the binder idea becasue I can keep it in my car.

Way to go Audrey!! Girl after my own heart!! When my kids were young and there were lots of DOUBLE and TRIPLE coupon offers by stores...I did more of that. Now, that the kids are older (and I'm in real estate)...I haven't made time to do that. It really WAS an awesome feeling to get items for FREE!!!  Thanks for the links! I may revive that habit of using coupons!

I also know some people that have been quite successful at couponing.  It takes real dedication.  Thanks for the video link, I'll check that out.  I'll be looking forward to your progress.
