Easily Amused

So I feel like sometimes that I'm possibly the busiest person on Earth. Mark kindly points out to me that EVERYone feels like that. Oh.

Well, I've started killing two birds with one stone in the area of time. I shop for groceries and household items. That's a must, right? Well, now I do it with wild enthusiasm because I am superhero "crazy coupon cutting CVS shopping saver girl". I get it done AND I get it done for a lot cheaper. It's such a game to me to see how much I can save each shopping trip. If my total saved is not at least 50% of my overall bill I'm distraut. Well, not really but I am replaying in my head how I could have done better. It's such an empowering feeling to accomplish such a fete and save our household major bucks. I'm a dork and can say it's kind of a hobby now. Mark jokes it's my new parttime job because I save so much. Besides the actual coupon clipping and sale chasing I'll share with you why I think extreme couponing works: 1. I NEVER go to Wal-Mark now so there is never a buggie full of junk that I didn't intend on buying 2. Our pantry, fridge, and freezer is well stocked so I feel less tempation to eat out which for a long time has been a huge money pit for us. 3. I stick pretty well to my list.All you see here=$7 bucks, Baby! 3 Stacy's chips, 3 True North snacks, 2 Gatorades, 2 Dove Deoderants, 1 Toothpaste with free sample, and 1 Almay eyeshadow. That's CVS-ing my friends!

I LOVE COUPONING!!! I really wish you guys had a Kroger in Chattanooga so you could experience the joys of Kroger mega sales. I saved 81% the other day--spend $20 and saved $72! It might even be worth the 1 1/2 hour drive for you to try it. :)

That is the most wonderful feeling when you save a lot more than you spend! It makes me want to do cartwheels out to the car! Congratulations!

I need to take a coupon clipping class. Seriously. How do you do it? I've heard of people saving bookoos of money at CVS... too bad we don't have one here. I'm jealous. =)

I've been doing some saving of my own. Took a pic and saved the receipt but haven't gathered the time to blog it. I will though. I am quite proud of myself too. :)
