It's an Addiction

November 2nd, 2008 at 08:01 am

I started early in the year trying to cut back our spending where possible. Since I do all the shopping, I started learning more about coupons and couponing websites. It is an absolute addiction. If you can't be bothered with it, you won't know what I'm talking about. But if you try and succeed just a few times with huge savings, you'll wonder how you ever thought it was a waste of time.

Granted, I spent a few hours each week doing this. But yesterday I scored great deals at Dillons - $3.41 for $33+ worth of groceries. That's almost 90% savings.

Overall for the week, I saved 42% using coupons. Some weeks are better than others. I've been tracking since the beginning of the year and we've dropped from an average of $191.98 to $133.23. That's for household products, groceries, and dog food. We have 9 big dogs so that's why the bill is so high. Sometimes they make up 50% of the bill for the week.

    I think it is great that couponing seems to work for you. However, how much time do you spend doing this? I tried doing couponing for awhile and it was a nightmare and too much stuff to keep track of.
