Let's face it...I'm hooked! Yes, if you know me then you are probably thinking, "Here she goes again!" I tend to get on certain fixes and become obsessed about whatever it is I'm fixed on at the moment. I work with a girl who has been talking about coupon-ing here lately. She told me of a 5 item purchase she made and before tax with her coupons she ended up paying $.53....That was intriguing!
Aaron and I are nowhere near made of money, especially as of late, so I starting thinking that if I could maybe get into this then maybe I could save our family a good bit of money....
Well I went prepared. I had my shopping list (which I'm not normally inclined to do)...I grabbed every thing on my list that I had prepared to purchase along with my pre-cut coupons....Unfortunately I've just started this so I don't have a huge collection of coupons yet...I then grabbed the few things I knew I needed and headed to the register. After all the savings-drum roll please....I walked out paying $39.73! For all you folks who don't feel like doing the math, that's a little over $35 in savings! WOW!
That also doesn't include the pizza that was out of stock. I ended up getting a rain check on it. The great thing about the pizza is-after all of my savings I have for it, it's actually going to be free! Yes, a $7.00 pizza to feed my family for free!
Okay, yes, maybe I'm slightly obsessed....But how can you not be when you save that much money!?
