So far since I've started couponing I have not used any coupons, weird I know but all the sites say you have to start by saving up coupons to match those to the sales. What I am seeing is if I make a menu, shop the best price for those items we don't spend nearly as much as if I don't have a plan. Last week I spent $129.45 for our weekly groceries and this included a splurge at Whole Foods for cheese. These numbers are strictly for groceries I don't include any cleaning supplies or dog food, I have just wanted to get a good idea on how much of our money we eat.
So far I have spent $4.00 on news papers and saved $0. Another major problem I have is I can't print coupons off the Internet, I think I have to change my security settings...when I say I have to change of course I mean Dano;)
