My new addictions

I guess I have an addictive personality . . . I have two new addictions. One is FACEBOOK. I am having so much fun connecting with friends! If you haven't signed up already, you need to!

The second addiction is COUPONS. I have cut our family's grocery bill significantly. The least I ever save now is 20%, and more often I save 50%. Last weekend however I took advantage of triple coupons at Bloom and I bought $360 worth of groceries for $101!! The amazing part was how many things I got FREE! All my Tuesday night scrapbook buddies are "coupon-ing" with me and each week we swap coupons and stories. With my weekend savings I was dubbed the Coupon Queen. It's funny, but very handy in these hard times!

That's awesome Krystal! Are these coupons that are being clipped out of your local newspaper? Please do share!

Most of them are. I buy several papers each week and clip the coupons for anything I would ever consider using, not just things we always use. You never know when something will go on sale and with your coupon it's so cheap that it's worth trying. We've been trying lots of new stuff - some we like, some we will skip from now on. You can also print coupons online. Go to www.couponmom.com and you'll find lots of helpful articles as well as links to print coupons, and of course you can google them as well. Good luck!

Holy cow Krystal, that is amazing savings! I remember a time when we just threw what ever in the shopping cart and didn't even look at the price. Seems so foolish now! I need to start cutting more coupons! Thanks for the motivation!

WOWZERS!!! I have clipped some more than I used to, and have got some good deals, but I am so not worthy!!! Look at you - you are a MACHINE!!!!!! I'm totally motivated to get more organized and become a better clipper-outer!
