From Sarah Baker…
I’ve only been couponing for about a month now, inspired by the TV show to see what I could do. I was skeptical because we don’t eat a lot of processed foods but I thought, what have I got to lose?
I subscribed to my sunday paper and started clipping. What I quickly learned was the longer you coupon the more you can save. My biggest savings yet has been 46% on a grocery bill. By combining coupons with items already on sale I get the biggest discounts.
I had 3 $1/3 coupons for Pierogi’s that were on sale for 2/$4. If you bought three you also got a FREE Giant 1/2 gallon ice cream. By combining coupons and sale/free items I got 9 boxes of Pierogi’s and 3 1/2 Gallons of Ice Cream for $12. So $1 per piece…. roughly a 60% savings.
Be patient, you won’t use all your coupons every week and some weeks the coupons won’t be that great but the deals are there is you keep clipping and paying attention!
