    I watched a couple episodes of "Extreme Couponing" on TLC the other day and was convinced that I could do it... So after a little research and printing online coupons, I went to the grocery store today. Sure enough, with my coupons and instore discounts, I managed to save myself 46% or over $50!!! I had two thoughts afterwards (in addition to the smile that was plastered all over my face) 1. I'm never going grocery shopping without coupons again. 2. I'm going to have a lot more money for fabric! HAHA :)

    Unfortunately, I can't use coupons. I never eat boxed things, canned sometimes. But mainly fresh stuff that actually looks like it's supposed to.

    Besides, I don't have TV. I do have one, but I got mad at that music talent show in about 2003 and cancelled the cable. I can watch Videos or CDs though, when I want to, which is about 2 or 3 times a year. Nice and quiet around here.

    But if that is what you generally buy, then might as well get it as cheaply as possible. Good work, now go and sew. Go and get more fabric, and enjoy!

    lol Sounds like my house growing up as a kid... my mother was distraught when we went to my dad's for the summer and started watching survivor and then threw a fit when we couldn't watch the finale due to not having a TV. We didn't get a TV until I was a junior in High School and cable was never an option. I didn't know about such a thing until college! :)

    You should look into the coupons tho.. 3/4 of my cart was fresh fruit and veggies, dairy, and meat. Its worth a shot!

    Great job, like you I always use coupons and i agree I get alot of fresh fruit and veggies.
    Once you are hooked you just can't pay full price.

    Coupons make me spend more because I buy things I would normally not buy.

    I always use coupons....and save 40 to 50%. The Extreme Couponing show just gives me more ideas to save more...and be able to buy more fabric

    We shop at Wal Mart and they price match so I really don't use coupons. I can hardly ever find any for the things I buy and I refuse to buy something I don't use just because I have found a coupon. We also buy store brand of the items that are tasty or just as good as name brand such as over the counter medications. I will call a company and ask for coupons on the items I don't want to get generic for such as diebetic Boost which my DH drinks when he is on Chemotherapy and can't tolerate food. I would love to use coupons more often, but can't usually find what I need.
