I must say I was and still am a bit intimidated about the whole couponing thing. I have been doing a good bit of research and reading up on how to start. I was realizing my grocery bills were higher than usual and with a puppy I can go through a bunch of paper towels. I'm not partial to shopping at one store, so I didn't really keep up with who had the best deals. When you tell someone you want to start couponing they kind of look at you like you might become a crazy person, haha. Well I'm not aiming on becoming crazed but I look forward to a different perspective on buying groceries. Today was my first attempt and I started off slow. I did some research and to start I am going to get groceries and other finds at Publix and Walmart. I did pretty good today. Publix really has some great deals! They run awesome buy one get one free deals on things you actually need. I never noticed the other shoppers with their coupon organizers until today. You aren't alone. Walmart has pretty good deals but you have to realize the best way to get great discounts is basically Only use coupons on items that are already on sale. I didn't realize this is the key. Then you can use multiple coupons on one item. That's how you end up getting things super cheap! At Publix I saved $30 from using coupons and getting specials. Woot!
At Walmart I saved $10! It is really fun. It's almost a challenge. Here are some great informative websites on how to start. Happy Couponing!!
