I'm addicted!

Ever since Greyson was born, I have been cutting coupons and signing up for free samples. The free samples are fun, because I always forget I signed up for them. I started using coupons religiously on diapers and then slowly using them on other products. Leslie and I have talked about coupons and how there are so many people out there who get all kinds of stuff for free by using them. We both liked the idea of pairing coupons with sales to get really good deals, but we didn’t really understand the concept of how you can get items for hardly nothing. I think Leslie’s life changed last Sunday and my changed today. One of her play-date friends is one of these coupon saving, double coupon using, get practically all your groceries for nothing, mom. This friend showed her how to cut the coupons and use certain websites to gain more coupons. She then went on to show her how to pair the coupons with the sales at Dillions to get groceries for a great deal. Leslie, being the great friend that she is, gave me the play-by-play on how to get the good deals as well.

Here's what I got today:

Can you guess the price? Drum roll please……I paid a whopping $4.78. I’m still on cloud nine and I went to the store over five hours ago. I told Luke we may need to buy a deep freeze, because I plan to do this every week.


  1. so, now i can comment. okay, so if i give you my grocery list, will you go shopping for me and only spend like $20? that would be so awesome! i think it is very cool that you get so excited about this kind of thing!

  2. I'll be needing that as well....
