- I recently started couponing on January 1, 2011 as a New Year's Resolution. I had never really couponed before because it always seemed time consuming- "how could a 25 cent coupon REALLY save you money?" I thought. Plus, I have never really stuck to a New Year's Resolution. So this year I decided to make a change- I would stick to both! And I have. So far I have cut our weekly grocery budget 70%! We used to spend $150 a week on little things that we could not even make a meal out of AND then we would eat out on top of that! Thousands wasted over a year. Now I spend on average $58 a week on groceries and personal items (toilet paper, body wash) AND I stock up on many of these items so I won't need them again for another 6-12 months! These number keeps going down as we begin to live off our stockpile. If you follow my blog, I will teach you some of the ways this newbie couponer has saved lots of money!

Heads up, CVS Shoppers!
This Sunday, most of us should get a Buy On Get One Free coupon for Clean and Clear Body Wash in the Smart Source. This is on sale at CVS for around $2.99 this week, so if you buy two you will pay $5.98. If you use your 3.27 BOGO coupon and then these $2 off 1 coupons you should hit a pretty good deal.! You can use the $2 off coupons on a bodywash AND the BOGO coupon to get one free...so your total should be around 50 cents each. Not bad- $1 to get 2 bottles of body wash! A lot of these print campaigns have a quantity limit, so print yours while you can.
