Here's Why I Love Coupons

I've mentioned on here that I've gotten into couponing. I am so thankful that Maura taught a class on it in Relief Society and got me started! Saving money is FUN!

Here are a couple pictures of what using coupons can do:

This is my trip to Meijer. For only $30 I got 1 gallon milk, 3 crystal light drink mixes, 7 boxes of capri suns, 2 bags chips, 4 lbs. of chicken thighs, 2 packages of Kraft Big Slice cheese, 3 packages of Oscar Mayer lunchmeat, 1 package of OM bologna, 4 peaches/nectarines, 2 activia selects yogurt, 2 chiquita apple bites, 2 toilet bowl cleansers and 2 containers of disinfecting wipes.
Not bad, if I do say so myself!!

This is a trip to Kroger. Anyone want to guess how much it cost? I got 3 Hamburger Helpers, 4 Minute Maid lemon ices, 2 dozen eggs, 2 Colgate toothpastes, 2 Colgate toothbrushes, 1 package greek yogurt, 1 yogurt delights, and 6 packages of peanut m&m's.
Here's the best part: all of this was only $6. No, that's not a typo. It really was only $6. I think I'm going to need more storage space soon....

You're amazing! So you or Maura should do a blogging demo on couponing. :)
