I think couponing is a way of embracing my new role as a stay-at-home mom. While I do work from home, I also recognize the need to save money and keep a tight budget since we don’t have two full-time incomes. Diapers are expensive, aren’t they?! ;)
Usually, I plan our meals around the weekly sales at the grocery store. This week I took it a step further. We went through our freezer and are planning on using up everything that we have in there. It’s amazing what you accumulate and forget about. I only purchased produce that was on sale. In fact, with the exception of a couple items, everything that we purchased was on sale this week. After I handed over the coupons – get this! – I saved $20! TWENTY DOLLARS! I was SO excited!
One of Hubster’s coworkers is really into couponing and offered to teach me some strategies before she moves away to take a different job this summer. I’m pumped to learn more about saving money for our family.
Do you have a shopping strategy?
