I love using coupons, always have, always will. Neal swears if we won the lottery I'd still use coupons and to that I say - heck yeah! I love it when I get something that is worth $10 for $2. Well I was recently introduced to some serious, whole 'nother level, couponing by a friend at church. She has figured out how to use coupons and CVS discounts and store credit/cash. So I've been trying for a few weeks now to get over to her house and learn these skills.
Here's my first attempt. I got $30.47 worth of stuff for 7.68 - that's a 75% savings.
Then I went to Publix and got $166.01 worth of stuff for $96.43 - that's a 52% savings .
And I'm not even that good. I know people who save 79% and 82%. I'm working really hard on learning how to get better!
