"This week, I once again spent about an hour clipping coupons and researching
the Publix sales ad. I went grocery shopping and bought sixteen items that I
needed. Now, some of these items were staple items that there are not coupons for, generally speaking. Milk and eggs, for instance, you rarely get a break on.
Now tell me that isn't crazy exciting! To spend more than you save on groceries (something you have to buy anyway) is wonderful--and once you realize the money you can save it's something you'll be excited to keep up with.
Anyhow, This week I spent $16.44 on $38.67 worth of groceries! That's a savings of $22.23 (thankfully, this is broken down on my receipt!) and I ended up saving more money than I actually spent. I actually got 2 huge boxes of delicious and healthy Total Raisin Bran for only $1.34 per box--the regular price of these is $4.79. It's kind of exciting to save so much money."
So, have you bought your newspaper today? Get those scissors out and get clippin'!
