I've finally been enlightened to the benefits of double and triple coupons. Why I waited so long? Beats me. Niel and I have always tried to save as best as we could. We would buy things on sale or the store brand or whatever had the best unit count. Recently I saw an episode of Rachael Ray where this woman saves $5,000 a year buy clipping coupons. I went through the circulars and compared what products were the cheapest and tried to apply coupons on top of that. Let me tell you it was exciting to see my grocery bill drop. Of course you shouldn't buy items you normally do not because it obviously won't help you save. Yes I've finally turned into my mother and no I don't care if that is weird.

You know, I try to save money too but I don't use coupons. I've been thinking a lot about it lately because my grocery store is doing "triple coupons" until Thanksgiving. Good deal.

That's pretty amazing, actually. I've never hardly used coupons. We don't even take the newspaper to clip them from, but I'm sure I could steal them from our office paper. ;) I also just checked and supertarget.com (that's where I do the BULK of my grocery shopping) has good coupons on their site too. Interesting.

I always use the coupons on baby stuff and I feel terrible if I buy it knowing that I have a coupon at home but am at the store then! My mom has an accordian coupon keeper.

That happens sometimes Jessica. Heh heh. Yeah I definetly will be organized them in some type of accordian.

I still can't figure out how that woman saved so much in one trip... I clip coupons and stuff but I'm lucky that I save 5 bucks lol... but I did try the tip in calling for coupons and it worked... gerber and stuffers did for their lean cuisne meals... I tried diet rite but they are out for the year... but it was aweome...
