GROCERY DEALS!

I really hope you're not thinking I'm boasting and bragging about my good grocery deals.... it's just that when I was a newbie, starting out and trying to self-educate myself on how other's do it... I was really inspired to learn how they did it by frequenting other's blogs and soaking up their tips! I love doing couponing, because it makes me feel like a contributing member of my family. A help-mate to my husband. A Proverbs 31 woman...well, with bleached hair and lipliner, anyway. That said... here's how I bought this table full of groceries for $20. (IT TOOK TWO HOURS!)

The key is to take advantage of the printable coupon sites like coupons.com,kraft coupons.com, general mills.com, redplum.com and smartsource.com. And, buy several Sunday papers or swap with family and friends. Look for peelies (coupons on products) and hangtags. Then sit down with the sale flyers and make it your "job." Match your coupons with what is on sale. I saved $118.00 yesterday at Krogers (the Krogers that doubles coupons).

Great job, Michele. I just wish I had more time. And I was so mad with our Wal-Mart lately. I spent a couple of hours on line printing coupons, lookins at sales, and I went to Wal-Mart and after shopping, shopping, and getting in line, the cashier said they no longer took internet coupons because of so much fraud. All that time and I had to just abandon my cart. At least other stores still take them.
