Harris Teeter started a week of triple coupons today!
I went for a "coupon shop". This is what I saved:
I bought $68.00 worth of groceries and I only spent $20!
Clipping coupons will help you week after week. I save anywhere from $5 to $20 each week with coupons alone! That does not include the money I save shopping at Aldi's.
My grocery bill was running from $100 to $120 every week. Now, with coupons and shopping at discount stores, we spend between $60 and $80 per week.
Clipping your coupons and shopping for sales really does pay off!
Here are tips on how to save money on your groceries:
I hope I have encouraged you :-)
