      This is kinda scary I’ve never posted anywhere before…
      Here goes….

      I’m ay stay at home mom of 3. My mom use to be kind of a coupon and refunding queen in the late 70’s and early 80’s. I remember a boxes full of upc codes and taking trips to the grocery store using separate registers to get around the store limits. She never taught me how to do it so I’m learning slowly. My husband was out of work earlier this year and as you can imagine things are a little tight. I figure the only household bill you can directly control is the grocery bill, so if you need some extra money or don’t have much this is the place to start. I’ve done OK so far….. Cut 1/3rd out of the grocery bill the first month. I am really interested in trying to use the drug stores i.e. wallgreens, rite aid. I’m trying to absorb all of this great information on this sight. Everyone seems so helpful, it’s great!:039:

      Dont be afraid about posting on here. You are not alone in your situation. We are all there or have been and have some suggestions to help you out. Grocery coupon clipping is a big help to saving some money but do take time to look over other ways you can save money. I have saved a lot by making my own laundry soap. If you are looking for specific information just ask, if you have information to share please do :).

      Enjoy the site-but will warn you it is very addictive 🙂

      :039: Nicole, A very friendly site here. Everyone is willing to help each other here. So like Kim, said just ask, If you need help–someone will speak up and help. 1/3 off a the grocery bill is quite a bit. You are on the right track. One step at a time. Enjoy!!!

      Hi Nicole ~

      I am also new to this entiree thing, I posted on my 1st site @ Sept 10th, I never knew these kind of sites were out here. As far as saving money, MYO, and ….. This is all new to me as well. **Then you add the SWEEPS into it. As you might have read, it is very addictive, and the SWEEPS are just like gambling.

      Hi and welcome. One of my favorite ways to save on groceries is to cross check the grocery ads & circle the item that is cheapest & then take the ads to WalMart & they will match the price if they carry that brand. My neighbor & I used to see who could save the most percentage wise. My best was 77%. She would say I can’t keep up with you. Between the price matchiong & coupons you can save quite a bit. But it takes time & lists. Good luck!
