It’s been a beautiful week. I simply cannot believe that Friday is here again already. Crazy how time flies.
Okay. So times are tough for many, huh? Gas prices are insane…and with it comes rising food costs. It seems that every time I go to the store I pay more for food. It’s ridiculous. Trying to feed a family of nine on a budget has become an art. I do everything I can to keep our grocery bill as low as possible–but it’s becoming increasingly difficult. I’m sure many of you can relate.
I’m taking the plunge! But I need some help because I am a total dork when it come to this….
For a while I have been thinking that I really do need to get into couponing (is that even a word?). I have read so many stories about how much money people save by doing it. I’m all for saving money. So I sat at my computer and decided to do a bit of research. Oh my goodness gracious. There are like fifty thousand sites all just for couponing. I had no idea where to even start.
So I abandoned my plan.
And thought I would come here instead.
Calling all coupon-lovin’ mamas…I need advice, please. And maybe someone else could use it too.

~~~ What are the best websites?
~~~ Do you really save a lot of money?
~~~ I also noticed that some people get free stuff through couponing. How in the world does that even work?

~~~ Any other secrets to couponing success?
Thanks, friends. I so appreciate your help and any advice you can share.
I’ll keep you posted and let you know how my quest to become a couponing mama goes.
