Good Morning Everyone! I know its been a lil while since I have been on here. I have been super busy. So I thought I would update everyone.

I am no where even close to saving 50% I know I need to change my shopping habits but that has been the hardest part. We always do mothly shopping all in one day. As of right now I may shave 50 to 60 dollars on a trip but thats only a 1/4 of my bill. I am starting to get a small stockpile going of free to almost free items which is nice. Hopefully I will get better at it soon.

Welcome from Williamsport, OH - it will get better. I use to get discourage at only saving 10% - 20% on each trip -but now I am at 50% and above each trip - it gets better - it really does. Stay with it and don't get discouraged.

Like I tell everyone in my coupon classes that I give with my sisters - "If you make couponing a chore - then you won't want to do it -keep it fun and keep it exciting!!"

Thank You at first I was spending hours searching, googling, printing. Then I realized that thats silly. I only spend a few hours a week looking for items that I want or need. I am sure that I will get the hang of it soon. I still need to learn how to shop at walgreens and ride aid. Those are the 2 stores I am most afraid of lol.

Welcome from upstate NY. I think 50% is a reasonable goal. Just take it slowly. You'll work up to that. Start with just a couple of things that you're family needs and buy a lot of that when you can get it at a good price. Then move on to the next item. After a couple of months, you'll find that your shopping expenses are dropping as things come off of your grocery list.

Started couponing seriously late June. Learned the ropes (ongoing still). Built my stockpile during July and August. Now what? Pay off the credit cards!!

Welcome from Texas! You might want to split your grocery money to take advantage of the weekly sales. I know that means up to four or five trips a month but being able to add the sale prices to your coupons will really increase you savings.

Thank you for the encouragement everyone. I am sure that I will get that hang of it eventually. We are starting to track how much we spend and how much we save in coupons to see if we are saving anything at all between all the papers and the shopping.
