I'm a couponer, yes. I just can't quite get "Extreme" with it.... yet. Of course, I am referring to TLC's Extreme Couponing where the people buy 400 million dollars of groceries for 2.5 cents. Maybe I just don't need 2500 sticks of deodorant? All joking aside, couponing is a way of life and today was no exception.
My most recent shopping trip resulted in getting just over $100 of groceries for $30-something. Not spectacular, but not bad. Everyone likes to see my receipt when I arrive home from the grocery store but today I heard "not your best trip, Mom".. ha!! I got 47 items for $32.81 which calculates out to .70 per item and this included a family pack of chicken breasts, family pack of ground beef, and a bottle of laundry detergent. I'll give myself a pat on the back and keep counting my pennies!
