***Disclosure-No compensation was received. Informational post only.So with the economy going the way it is going I have been becoming more and more concious of how we spend our money. So I decided to try it out but this time for real. I asked a friend at work if she was using the coupons from her Sunday paper. She gave them to me as she was not using them. I cut out every coupon. My hand hurt by the time I was done. She had been keeping those in a pile in her recycables. So i basically spent all mornings cutting coupons. Then I sorted through them. I put them in stacks by month. I found some really good ones that offered free items as well. So after sorting through the coupons i made my grocery list. I put a star next to the items I had coupons for. I had coupons for most of the items I needed. I didnt even realize there were coupons for milk. I went off to my local SuperWalmart. I went down the ailes looking for the best deals some items were not on sale but with the coupons it made them on sale. I save $20 this shopping trip on normal items I would usually purchase. I didn't think I would save this much but I did. So all in all my experiment work. I will be buying the Sunday paper now and get my coupons cut for my next shopping trip.
