We Are Deep In the Heart of Texas

Nomadic seasons of farming adventures with nature thrown in to include; a pinch of family, snippets of friends, counting our blessings, paying IT forward, home school, and the spicy things I decide to rant about.

My Journey with couponing

This is a repost from BIG TENT thanks to Ms. Lori for telling me about HOW TO SHOP FOR FREE and I joined last month:



Just testing this thing out...............

tap tap tap -- Is this thing on? LOL

Anyway thanks to all the information. I have learned oodles of things lurking in my email. I can report starting on 1 October, I will be posting a spreadsheet with what I spent and showing what I have saved using Coupons, Rebates and Sales (while stockpiling).

My only options is to drive to Beeville, 23 miles one way to HEB or Super Walmart. Super S while doubling coupons are approximately 35% more pricer than the local large chains. I am still learning the ropes of Walgreens and don't have access to other drug stores. So, my goal is to cut my bill down in half again.

We were spending $200 a week and I have gotten that down to about $100. In three weeks since joining, I have created a baseball card binder with over 150 sheets (9 coupons ea page) collections for my use.

Thanks again for all the ideas and such,

Very Respectfully,
