My other secret love....coupons!

As many of you know, I have been doing Pinching your Pennies for quit some time now...and can I just say it is the greatest thing EVER! When getting in line behind someone with coupons I would roll my eyes and think, "are you serious!" Now I'm the one hacking people off, and I LOVE it. Brad is completely shocked at the amounts I save each and every week. It is like a game for me. Last week I shopped my best week to date. This is everything thing I got at Albertson's....


10 Dannon Yogurts
5 Boxes Electrosol
4 Boxes granola bars
2 Boxes Instant oatmeal
10 Healthy choice meals
1 Carton OJ
1 Loaf bread
My total should have been $91.65, but after coupons and my preferred card I spend a whopping $19.61! I saved $72.04!!! That is less than .60 an item. Bravo to me I say! You all should really try it. My food storage has also grow from nothing into this...


I know it's not huge, but it's more than we had 2 months ago which was nothing!
