So, I've heard a lot about how much you can save by using coupons and shopping sales but I never really knew how to do it right. People would also say often you could get stuff for FREE doing it that way. Josh and I kinda tried when we lived in Utah last year, but we never got the hang of it or saw that great of results. I was playing around on Facebook the other day and saw some pictures from one of my friends. The pictures had a bunch of food and then the caption said how much it cost... it wasn't much at all! A few days later she posted another picture with a super low total cost. Like I'd heard, many of her items were free after the coupons. I had to asked her how she did it! She explained a few things to me, suggested some websites, and then I did a TON of internet research. I read blogs, websites, and printed coupons. Below is my first success story! All that is pictured was originally $27.18 before coupons. I paid a grand total of $2.16- with many items free. I seriously still can hardly believe it.
It consisits of 2 bags of Chex mix, 1/2 gallon milk, 2 frozen meals-FREE, a box of rice, 4 travel size contact solutions-FREE, heartburn medicine-FREE, dryer sheets, face wipes(travel size)-FREE, fruit cups, and 2 travel size toothpastes-FREE.
I'm still very much a newbie at this, but I'm going to keep at it. If I can do it, anyone can!
