So have been trying the whole spend less/ save more thing that I think every0ne in America is trying to do right now. We are doing great, but I have felt this urgency to get a good emergency fund in our savings account, just in case. Best to be prepared!
One way that I have been able to free up more money is in our grocery shopping. I have started cutting coupons and shopping the sales. I have been able to really build up our food storage for very little money. I use this website to help me out – this lady matches up the sales and coupons for you so that you can see where you can really maximize your savings. Usually, I am able to save about 40 % on my bill, but today I did awesome! It was pretty exciting to see how much I was able to get for so little.
Total before sales and coupons: $70.13
Total after sales and coupons: $32.95 ( I saved $38.08 – that’s 54%!)
Next, I went to Kroger:
Total before sales and coupons: $25.18
These were on sale for $8.99. I had a coupons for $2 off the Overnite diapers (A must at our house, unless I want to be awakened at 6am). I can also get a rebate through Rite Aid for $3. So after all is said and done, I will only have to pay$3.99 for a pack of diapers!
That makes for a good day of saving in my book!
