I'm a lover of coupons. I love me some coupons. I have a 3-ring binder chock full of coupons, clipped and sorted. I use them alllll the time. My kids make fun of me because I say, "We can't buy that, I don't have a coupon for it." They can make fun of me all they want, but I've brought my grocery bill down to about $70 a week for a family of 5. I usually save about $40-$50 a week. Impressive, no?
I went over my totals for the month of June. I've spent $358.72 on groceries this month. For FIVE people. That includes toiletries and household items. I've saved $252.66! To think that I would have spent over $600 on groceries if I paid full price makes my skin crawl!
