$154.01

That’s how much we saved with coupons this past month.  Let me say that again…  We saved $154.01 in coupons last month!!

I knew it was a lot, but when I added up the savings on the receipts tonight, I was blown away by the amount!  $74.85 was groceries, $18.18 was eating out, and $60.98 was gifts, games, and decorations.

We bought the Sunday paper the first two weeks we were here, and I clipped only the ones we would normally buy.  Then when we got the grocery store ads on Wednesdays, I’d go through and circle what we needed from each place.  It added a few more stops, but it was totally worth it!  We also got some GREAT deals from the Toys-R-Us ad one week, ate breakfast for FREE at Chick-fil-A one morning, and had a buy one get one free entree coupon for Logan’s last Saturday.

I’m sold — I’ll be using coupons as much as possible from now on.  And now I think I’ll make myself a challenge and see if I can beat that price this month!

Do you use coupons?  Any secrets/tips?
