I have a confession...........

Yes again I am baring my soul to you, first my addiction and now a confession!! I never claimed to be perfect! We all have our secrets.

I am a coupon addict...freak...what ever you want to call it. If it is not on sale or I don't have a coupon for it , I DO NOT BUY IT. Plain and simple. I have saved a lot of money how much I am not sure. I have decided to keep track of it starting in February, not sure why I never have before. It is like a high to see how much money I can save every week.

There are several blogs I visit on a regular basis to gather my information. The one I visit the most is Common Sense with Money, why her? Well it turns out she is local, thus post our local grocery store coupon deals. Our local grocery store doubles coupons 1 day a week, Wednesdays. There is a catch....only 5 can be double up to $1 and you have to spend $25 and use your savers club card. She figures all of this out for me and I thank her for that!

Another great one is STL Mommy...she has the most in depth Walgreens sale and coupon match up I have ever seen!


We cannot forget about $5 dollar dinners.......The Grocery Cart Challenge ($60 a week for a family of 6 AMAZING!) and oh so many more. I feel bad that I can't mention all of them. There are so many...so many great ones all filled with tones of useful information.



Well there you have it...another secret...this one I am proud of.

FYI last weeks total grocery bill before coupons $141.90 total AFTER coupons/sale items $82.29 that is a savings of $59.61.....WOW!!! I was even impressed with that.

Thank you Susan! I really appreciate you mentioning STL Mommy and appreciating the Walgreens ad- that thing takes me about 4 hours! :) I also love your blog and it always makes me smile because I have 2 boys 2! I call the men in the house My 3 A's because the hubby and boys all have names that start with A's!
Thanks again! :)
