So, today I took the time to do my couponmom.com .
I find clipping coupons the easiest part of the so called grocery game, the hardest part keeping track of everything! I have been clipping the coupons from the Sunday paper for about 3 weeks now. Only clipping the ones I may actually use, like avoiding 6 different kids of pillsbury biscuits.
Then you head over to coupon mom. Pick your store and click on the ones you will use. It kinda puts together a little grocery list. I avoid picking anything that won's save me over 35%, unless I really need it. I also had an entire bunch of Holiday coupons from Safeway they sent me in the mail....NEVER underestimate the mail flier. It had a 10$ off with card on entire purchase and a bunch of FREE things (taco shells, ketchup, mixed salad;etc)
I made my list and headed to Safeway. It's a total pain in the ass. Coupons flopping everywhere, nothing is ever in order, you have to read everything....You almost need a coupon desk that would hook onto the shopping cart. (brilliant idea for anyone so inspired)
Took me about an hour. BUT:
my total bill was about $113.00 then after all the stupid coupons and the discounts...I saved $52.52!!! Read it and weep!
