good deals

A couple weekends ago we went to a date night hosted by our friends Paul and Jen. They had this coupon expert come and give a presentation on how to get more for less at the grocery store. I've used coupons here and there but I have never saved 80% like she does. I took notes and decided to give it a try. She said it would take about 3 months before you really started saving a lot of money because you have to stock up initially. Basically once you have a good base pantry then you only buy things when they are on sale and a good deal.

Well I am pretty proud of myself because this week I found 2 killer deals.


This toothpaste is typically 3.50 or so, well it was on sale for 1.75 and I had a 1 dollar off coupon so I got it for .75 cents! and I had two coupons so not only did I get one but I got two for less than buying one!

This week I found, 3 for 10$ and I have a dollar off coupon, but I have 2 coupons, so I get 3 for 8!. And I definitely will use all three before summer is over.

Don't you just love a good deal?!??! Nothing feels better than saving some money, especially on things like lotion, toothpaste, detergent etc etc. This coupon expert really had an easy system to make coupon shopping easy for everyone. If you are interested in hearing more let us know because we are thinking of hosting our own coupon night, it's totally free, we don't get anything from it and neither does she. We all just get the opportunity to save a couple dollars each week and that can really add up!
