Our New Favorite Thing!

Lara and I are now teaching FREE couponing classes for (a FREE service that matches your coupons to local sales). We are able to provide great hostess gifts as well as an amazing deal on the Sunday paper which is the best place to find high value coupons. It is a short and entertaining class so leave a comment if you would like to schedule a class for you and your mom's network.

p.s. Grocery Smarts is currently only available in UT and Nevada but I have had a couple of friends outside the state that recommend grocery game (unfortunately they do charge a small monthly fee).


This week I spent $328.24 and saved $416.14, that's a 58% savings. I purchased 138 items (mostly stock up items) including: Tide HE detergent for eight months, Cascade for 12 months, Pampers wipes for six months, Pampers diapers for two months, Prilosec for six months, Oral B toothbrushes for 12 months, 15 boxes of Betty Crocker fruit snacks, Dasani water 24 packs (12 packs for $30), 7 boxes of Mr Clean Erasers, 12 boxes of Kleenex tissue, 24 cups of Yoplait yogurt (you can freeze these if you want to buy a lot when they are on sale but your family won't go through all of them before they expire), Secret deodorant for 24 months (went a little crazy here and will probably give some away depending on how long they last), Gillette razors for 24 months, 10 boxes of FiberOne cereal bars, and other items including orange juice, dental floss, and eye drops.

I have been couponing for three months and am now doing most of my weekly shopping out of my pantry.
