First Time for Everything

January 25th, 2009 at 05:50 pm

So, I asked my wife if I could take over the shopping last week. She does so much and I, although am working with a start up company which keeps me pretty busy, I felt I was ready to take on a little more of the household responsibilities.

So two weeks ago I ordered the Couponizer. I also ordered our local paper for weekend deliveries only ($11/mo). I started clipping coupons, sorting them and preparing for my first shopping trip.

Well, I took our list, compared coupons and off I went.

I feel GREAT! I saved $56.00 between coupons and in-store sales with my bonus card. I am proud of how much I bought, including breakfast and snack items for the girls' lunches. So, I think I will be allowed to continue. Only a few things were questioned but overall, I faired pretty well. God bless.

    Google it. It is great. It comes fully organized to help you prepare for each shopping trip. It was a total of $25.00 but I saved double that already. God bless.

    Aren't coupons so much FUN! I'm having a blast bragging to friends and family about how many products I've gotten lately for free or nearly free. My mom actually thought I meant 2008 when I gave her the dollar amount. Uh no, so far in 2009.... over $250.00 Smile
