Call me the coupon queen

I am so excited that I have converted so many of my friends to clipping coupons. Who really would turn down free money if it were laying on the side of the street??? Well, it's not quite that easy, it does take a bit of planning and organizing to get the best deals. All in all, it's my relaxing time that has most recently become my obsession. I have cut our grocery bill down by $60 a month just by planning a bit more especially for triple coupon days at Harris Teeter and Lowes. Even more exciting, KMart has been having super doubles (double coupons up to and including $2, that's $4 off of any one item). Wowsah. Sorry, I've gotta take a minute to calm down.

Two of my regular websites...

Also, instead of Philip and myself exchanging gifts of any sort this year we have adopted a family that we personally know. The money that we have saved in groceries and our gift money is going toward a holiday meal and gift cards for this family. We have been blessed to have our health, our family and friends, and our jobs and want to pass it on to others.
