I love saving money. I seriously get a rush watching my totals come down on the grocery store registers. The sad part is I think the most expensive single item was the milk - $3.50/gallon...

I love that you're a total coupon "Nerd", and you're "Hot" too.

Good Job

Dude, think of it as $175 off what you spent last week!!

That's awesome by the way. I'm a big couponer but they don't work as well at the commissary because you can't double and triple them. But its the commissary...so I can't complain too much.

It's a little bit of work but totally worth it to me.

We have 3 stores down here that will triple the value of coupons up to $0.35 (making them worth $1.05) and double coupons up to $0.50 (making them worth $1.00). I buy 2 double Sunday papers each week and end up with 4 of every coupon. I only cut out the coupons I will use... I keep them sorted in a zippered 3-ring binder with baseball card style plastic pockets.

Then I use a website I subscribe to called The Grocery Game and they have listmakers who do all the work for me. I print out the items on the list that I need and take it to the store. It's that easy! The Grocery Game is fee-based but I get lists to 5 different stores for 8 weeks for $30. It saves me tons of time and I obviously save WAY more than the fee in one trip. They also have a 4 week trial you can sign up for if you want to check it out. If you do that you might want to collect a few weeks worth of coupons before you do the trial so you have some that are on the list...

I love when something is on sale 10 for $10 and I have a $0.35 coupon for it. I end up with 4 of them for free. Score! E-mail me if you have any questions. :)
