My husband was laid off and his unemployment ran out. Time to start learning how to be thrifty. I would clip a few coupons & go shop for BOGO (buy one, get one)
I was bragging about saving $10 - $20 when I went grocery shopping. Then a friend of mine told me she spends about $50 and gets about $150 worth of merchandise.
I am still working on the art of this magical money saving plan but so far so good. Today was my first day of actually going to a couple different stores with coupons attempting to save money. I bought $218.06 worth of groceries and a few odds & ends. I only paid $135.74. I saved $82.32 using coupons and shopping smartly using the adds in the Sunday paper. The photo below is my receipt from one of my stops.
So I do believe that coupons are worth the time and I am the person in the line at the grocery store that people are annoyed with.
