I Have to Brag


So my sister Lillian got me into clipping coupons when she called me a few months ago and said that she got an unreal amount of groceries for nearly free. So I have been trying my hand at it, and.... Wa La! It works! I save soooooooo much on groceries now that the cashiers give me strange looks as if I have just stolen a cart full of stuff. Today everything that I purchased (pictured) came out to a grand total of 108.82...... BUT THEN..... Hand over the little pieces of miracle paper and PRESTO- I paid 34.38!!! The other day I got over 100 dollars worth of groceries and paid only 11 dollars for it all. I should have taken a picture of that, but most of it was frozen foods so I opted to put it all in the freezer instead :) Judd laughs at me when I come home and excitedly tell him how much I saved, but hey I save us lots. I'll have to figure out how much I actually save in a month and what our grocery bill is.. I'll give ya'll an update later :)

Tell me your tricks! Everytime I have attempted it it is just not saving enough to go through the hassle.
