Alright, the couponing has been in full swing within the last 3 weeks. I had some great luck over Thanksgiving with saving on groceries while family was out. Of course there are some items you just "have to have" at the holidays, so I wasn't able to totally shop the ads, but I worked it hard! We saved over $200 that week in groceries. Granted we spent about $400, but still, $200 is $200!
I've been keeping track of my awesome coupon deals in the last 3 weeks. When I went back and looked at my list tonight (yes, there is a list - are you really surprised?) I realized there have been 12 stores/vendors that I have saved BIG at in the last 3 weeks. Time for me to share my awesome deals with you all. I'm not going to post all the details as to where I got all the coupons and all of that jazz - too much detail might overwhelm you all. However, if anyone would like the specifics as to how I pulled these deals off, just let me know. I'd be happy to send you the document with the breakdown : )
|Prep Materials for setting up the HUGE Binder. Ended up with 3" binder, and it's packed full.|
|38 tabs, organized by aisles in the grocery store that we shop in most. I added categories after sorting.|
|Using baseball card holders to keep the coupons organized works well. I also use 4x6 clear picture holders to hold the bigger, store specific coupons. This binder weighs just under 12 pounds - it's slightly annoying, but saving 70% isn't!|
