Grocery Shopping Again

Thanks in big part to this blog, I have re-discovered The Grocery Game. IT really is an AMAZING way to save money. It only takes a couple of minutes to check the lists and choose what you want to buy. Cutting out the coupons takes me 30 minutes (I keep each Sunday coupon insert whole). Printing coupons from places such as takes another 10 minutes. Grocery shopping with the list takes about 30 minutes.

Seeing the total go down, down, down = PRICELESS

This week I save $83.61, and that includes the $26.99 extended edition of the High School Musical 3 movie (which has a peelie on it for free bread and cold cuts, I had a $10 coupon for the movie and I had manufacturers coupons for both the bread and cold cuts).

Lee, from MWOB, asked me about arranging my groceries. That's like the big win at the end of it for me. I can step back and see EVERYTHING I have bought. I'm a dork - I get a big kick out of it.

I've also linked up to The New Frugal Mom, who has a list of all the good deals at Kroger.

You are good. How in the world do you only go and get 29 items? Plus, save so much?
First, I hate going to the store. I went yesterday and was the quite the talk at checkout. I spent $264.00, had no coupons, I thought they would never stop bagging and thank goodness I had my iPod to get me through the chore.
Maybe, I should learn to go weekly. I just sooooo hate to go to the store.

I love to grocery shop. I am going to have to check out the Grocery Game. I know quite a few people who use this.

Things are getting bad, though. Our newspaper had NO coupons one Sunday. Either that or someone took our coupons!
