AMAZING!!!

Thanks to my bff Liz I took a class on how to save $$$ on your monthly grocery bill and Last night I went grocery shopping with Liz and her cute wonderfully helpful sister Katie (Thank you Katie) and came home truly amazed...why you say??? Take a minute to look at the picture and try to guess what it cost....ok, are you ready for this.....I only paid $41.46 for $176.73 worth of grocery's!!!! My secret.... using coupons and the stores great sales. Yesterday I printed on-line coupons and browsed the Albertson's ad and made a grocery list on the website grocerysmarts.com. To be honest it was a little frustrating navigating my way through uncharted territory not knowing what I was doing and registering with all the manufactures but in the end it was well worth it and will be even more productive when I compile coupons from Sunday's paper and get more comfortable with the system. It is also a gret way to help you build up you food storage which is something that was on my goal list for 2009. Liz and I plan to go shopping together for support *let's be honest it's just more fun to do together* every week and I am excited to see how much I can cut from of monthly grocery bill. I am already looking forward to getting Sunday's paper.....Here's to the savings!!!!

First off that is awesome. Second I didn't know you were a coupon clipper. My all time best shopping experience with coupons and sales was a trip to the supermarket that ended up being $47 and I saved $75. I am impressed you saved so much. Teach me your ways!
