Coupons & Free Samples!?

Id Really Like to Save Money!
We spend alot of money on groceries. The first week we moved in here we spent almost $300. Mostly because we needed the necessities like salt, pepper, sugar, flour, and other spices. Then we were spending around $150-180 a week. I finally relalized- we dont need all that food. PJ is good, he only gets the things he knows he will eat. I on the other hand.... oh no... I will get what I know Im gonna eat... and what I would also like to eat.... which by the time the week is over I have all these goodies still. So we have been spending less now, trying to do better, usually around $120. Mind you, 20-30 of that is dog food.

I watched Good Morning America the other day ( I think ) and they followed this woman into the grocery store. The only things she bought was what she had coupons for. This lady spent $260 on food and after coupons she only paid 5 cents. Yes, I said 5 CENTS! Well thats all fine & dandy. Where the hell is she getting ALL those coupons FROM?? Id sure like to know..... which by the way, her secret they never did tell ;)

So today I was browsing some sites. Trying to sign up for coupon sites so we can start saving more money too. I used to laugh at people who used coupons, thinking "who has the time to clip them?" Now as an adult, having to pay for food with my own money, Im looking around like "where the hell are all the coupons!?" So I just wanted to share with you some coupon sites & also some free samples I came across.... have fun! And if you have any pointers to share with me, please tell me where you clip your coupons from. Thank you!

  1. I am going to my health club to be weighed, measured, pinched and poked tomorrow. I will also have my photograph taken. This is a bit scary since I feel oooh so nooot thin tonight. I had a couple of days in a row that I really didn't do a work out. I am not going to get discouraged though. I wish you luck.

    I am a nearly 50 year old suburban mommy. I have spent most of my life screwed up regarding body image. You are such a young cute girl with such nice confidence. I'm convinced that you can do this!

    I believe that the key to successful weight loss is what is going on between your ears.

    I'll be following you!

    Warmest Wishes,

    Denise Burks
