Couponing

So, I don't know if anyone noticed or cared, but I took a little break from blogging for a while there in Feb. I had a new little hobby that I started in January. Saving $ at the grocery store...
From Misc.

So the trip above was this week, I spent $36, but saved $55!
Chris poked fun at me for a while there, and I do look a little crazy when I come home with 4 newspapers on Sunday... haha. But he's since embraced it. He even got me a Couponizer for my birthday in Feb! I love it!!
I've also gotten others to join and save - April, Morgan, Erin, Sara, Kelly and my friend Jill from small group!
It's really not hard, just takes some time to start up and be good about making a list and sticking to it!! What's great is also getting diapers for cheap!!
Check out the beginner's guide and website of southernsavers.com and couponkatie.com. Good luck!

Also please tell me you take advantage of CVS. They be having crazy sales... 24/7.. like last week if you had 2 coupons for the intuition razors ( $4.00 off each) then since they were buy one get one free and you use two coupons you pay 1.99 for 2 razors.... riiiiiidiculous! hahahah
