I have to thank the blogs I have been following: The New Frugal Mom, Mommy Snacks, Freebies For Moms, Centsible Sawyer, and Keeping Kingdom First.
They have tons of resources and tips for getting coupons and where to use them!
Next, I have gotten a second email address to use for the special offers, newsletter and deals on products I use so I can get coupons without filling my current email box. A couple of times a month, I go through the emails and find some great stuff (like the coupon for the free Wet Jet!).
I keep them all in a typical file folder and use them when I make my list. When I get better at this blog thing I'll add pictures. (Another goal for 2010 - technology!)
So I need to add to my savings total: $85 couponing savings for a grocery total of $175. My goal for food this month was $500. I spent $350 at the grocery store for the month and $100 for my fruit and veggie co-op. That is $450 so, I am counting that as an additional $50 savings. (Thank goodness for Christmas leftovers from Nana!
Year to date total: $1479.00
