In my attempts to be a little more conscious of my spending, I've casually turned to coupons to save a dollar here or 50 cents there. Being recently new to the coupon world, I had no idea that such a cult (for lack of a better word) existed. I also had no idea how much of a hobby coupon-ing can become. My inbox is filled daily with fun savings from coupons.com and groupon.com. (If I'm missing another great site, let me know!!) Some of the stuff that pops up for sale I would never buy (read: go-gurt, toaster strudels), but sometimes there are straight gems in there!
So anyways, I've been collecting coupons for a month or two, and today I had to make a big grocery run. I've been traveling so much lately with summer fun that my cupboard was absolutely bare when I started to make my list.
And let me tell you, I could not believe my eyes when I saw my savings when the cashier rang me up.
I saved $17.22 shopping today!!! Can you believe that?!? I think it is so awesome- I'm totally inspired now. It really makes a difference!
