MODERATE COUPONING.

As I mentioned earlier this week, Mike and I started watching Extreme Couponing. And then we decided, "THIS IS US NOW!" So, we ran to the store on Sunday to get a paper for all the coupons. Cut to me huddled over an Excel spreadsheet with coupons all around me while Mike plays on his phone. Typical men.

We had our first foray into the world of couponing on Tuesday night. I had my list ready and my coupons in hand. I managed to get through the store without buying anything that wasn't on my pre-made list (Except Mike didn't get that lucky because apparently he has to buy tamales whenever they're on sale).

I spent $14.31 and saved $21.26

So, not bad. Not bad at all. Obviously, we'll see how long this lasts. I definitely do not want to be one of those women on the show. Dumpster diving for ads is not how I want to spend my evenings. But, saving money is kind of the name of the game right now and this is a relatively easy way to do it. 

We'll see. I don't expect to pay $0.02 for 9 baskets of groceries, but if I can save almost double of what I spent, then it's worth it.

Good luck with your move! The couponing is fairly easy -- just more time consuming than I thought.

Do it! It's definitely worth it. The hardest part is just the time it takes. Good luck!
