Okay Becky and other money savers...

I went to the grocery store Thursday morning when I was home with a sick Emily. I grabbed "just the things we needed" and checked out at just $100. Seriously!?!

Now a few months ago that would have been a typical shopping trip, but after playing the grocery game the past few months I now know how much more I could have purchased if I was smarter and used my coupons.

So this morning I clipped my coupons and plan on heading out to my three stores just after church. I intend to end up with far more bags of groceries than my Thursday trip, but far less in my total cost.

I will let you know how it goes.

Did you go yesterday, or are you going today? Let me know how you do! :)

I'm not sure if I will go. I got hit with a cold so I'm chugging the cranberry juice and emergen-c. Hoping that I can knock it down a level by tomorrow.

I miss you we need to stop playing phone tag already!

Update: I saved $23 for a total purchase of $29. I used a record 17 coupons for 19 total items!?!
