You have to check out today's post, Humble Pie, over at Money Saving Mommy's site. I swear this was so me today only I did it with two miserably cranky kids. LOL. I really love this post! Click here to read about the adventures of being, what I call myself, a Crazy Coupon Lady.
Today's saving were well worth the planning, coupon clipping and 2 1/2 hour grocery trip. Although I could have done without the two cranky kids. I can't blame them. two and a half hours is a really long time for a four year old and nine month old to behave in a store. Anyway, I ended up spending $70.00 and saving $11.50 in bonus club savings and $36.00 in coupons. That's a total of $47.50 in savings on a $70.00 purchase. That makes me want to jump up and down. I may have done that except the woman at the self-checkout was pretty annoyed with me by the time I was done :). It wasn't my fault that the coupon scanner wasn't working properly. It was an exhausting grocery trip but it is the only way for me to stay on a budget, eat healthy and continue to be a Stay At Home Mom. Well worth the exhaustion!
