saving moolah!


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!

That is so exciting! Dave is our grocery shopper and he loves a good deal...he always tells me how much he saved when he walks in the door...

Wow!!!! Get it girl!!! I am so excited about this sale and need to get on over to Publix with my coupons! Let me know how you like the cereal! James will eat anything but I'm picky...but the granola with plain yogurt is delicious if I do say so myself! I am sooooooooo proud of you!!!

I SO printed out some coupons and trotted on over to Publix. I bought 6 bags of organic fruit (for making yummy ice cream this summer) and 6 boxes of cereal for $11. (8 for fruit, 3 for cereal) Pretty good! Thanks for the heads up!

i love it! I'm so inspired too! I've been trying to do better about using coupons too because it's just like getting free money back in your pocket! And who doesn't like that!

Girl I love some coupons!! I used to have a huge binder that I would take in the stores. I have them sorted and had lists and flyers and lots of fun stuff. People would come up to me and ask if I worked at the store! I love it when I find items on clearance and I have a coupon for it AND it doubles. YEA!!!!
