Grocery savings!

I've been wanting to learn how to been a coupon genius but didn't really know how to get started. I've used them when I find them in magazines or in papers. I have read two blogs that teach you how to use them and so I ordered some coupons, spent $5 for $53 worth of savings and also ordered a month of the sunday paper. But I found a site where you can just buy the inserts for really cheap! So this is my first real coupon outing and drum roll...... 
Total before savings: $ 53.00
Total savings: $35.77
Total spent: $17.43

I think I did pretty good! Alot of this I can use in my food storage... really, how much spaghetti sauce can 2.5 people eat? This got me really excited and now I feel little more confident for my next trip! The important thing is to wait until the store cuts prices and then swoop in with your coupons. I got the pasta and cat food for free!


  1. Awesome! I've wanted to start couponing again but don't know where to start. Any suggestions?

  2. What was the site that your ordered the coupons from? I run a home day care and am always looking for a way to lower my grocery bill!

  3. I found all the sites through fabulessly frugal
    Hope this helps!
