I gotta tell you...the idea of couponing never struck me as something I'd want to keep up with...lots of work, not many items that I purchase have coupons & I'm just not that organized! Well, that may have all changed today!! Check out this blog - a friend, Jessica, has recently started! I dare you not to get inspired! OK - you need more? Check this out!
I bought SEVEN boxes of Cascadian Farm Cereal today at Publix. Normally, these bad boys (or girls) would set you back about $4.00 a piece - a piece!! So, lets see... $4.00 x 7 = $28.00. TWENTY EIGHT dollars for a guilt free breakfast!! Alright, maybe not guilt free since you'd feel so guilty eating such expensive cereal! But, not anymore... at least not in the Lingenfelter household for the next couple of weeks...because Mama bought all SEVEN boxes for...drum roll please... $3.00! Yes, you read that right, I bought 7 boxes of Organic cereal for THREE DOLLARS!! Jessica, aren't you proud of me? See how your tutelage is helping? Seriously, because of some VERY simple couponing before I left for the store today I saved over $30.00! I literally cut my bill in half! I was so excited that the checker-outer guy high-fived me!
I don't know how out of control I'm going to get with this new coupon business, but I tell you one thing - I'm going to become more conscientious!
