So, some good sites to go to for saving money on groceries are: http://www.moneysavingmom.com/ I love this one b/c it is easy and you can request lots of free samples that will come in the mail in 6-8 weeks (I have pictured myself at the mailbox perplexed as to why I am getting free cereal or lip balm in 8 weeks or so, because I am sure I will forget :) http://www.couponmom.com/ I havent used her coupons yet b/c I was having trouble printing them but hope to in future. My friend, Amanda told me about http://www.pgesaver.com/ This one is great b/c they load your coupons onto your Kroger card. She has informed me that if they have 10 for 10 sales, you can use your coupons and essentially get items for free. There is also http://www.shortcuts.com/ which I have yet to visit, but that Amanda also recommended.
Now that I am only working part time, I am trying to teach myself how to save our family money. I want to be a good steward and help our family in this way. I have been taking baby steps so that I do not get overwhelmed. For some reason, coupon mom overwhelms me. But, I think that is b/c she has such a large audience since appearing on TV and her site has gotten too big. But, that could all be in my mind. Again, LOVE moneysavingmom. I have gotten free shakes, Chick-fil-A sandwiches, lip balm, cereals, fiber 1 bars, etc....I highly recommend this site
Feel free to leave any comments about how you save money! I would love to know!
