In the begininng....

I finally have enough practice to say that couponing is a lot harder than it seems. It takes practice, diligence, trial and error. For those of you who are new to couponing, this can be a place where we can go through trial and error together. I will post my shopping experiences, you can post yours and we can learn from each other :)

Tomorrow I plan to go to Tom Thumb (a local grocery store) and do my grocery shopping for the week. I plan to stay at or under $100. With a 3 month old on formula and diapers for her and my 2 year old, I will post the best deals I can find for baby items, but if I purchase formula at Tom Thumb, I won't count that toward my "allowed total," etc.

If you are new to couponing, I would suggest buying multiple newspapers this weekend as many bloggers I follow say there will be several coupon inserts. What better way to begin than with a bang!!

Happy Couponing!!!
