Yet again today, I saved almost $100 on my groceries! And you can do it too! This (very short) post is just meant to be a little extra encouragement to those of you who want to learn to coupon! Here's what I brought home from Kroger. Some things are stock up items, like baby food, condiments, and personal supplies. Other items are splurges that our family wouldn't usually buy, but they were FREE! And some things are everyday groceries we needed immediately. *Not everything in this trip was needed for immediate use, but when it is free or a moneymaker, it is hard to pass up! PLUS, my parents are in town and I had to impress my dad, the accountant, with my couponing skills! :)
