Thanks to the inspiration of a few good friends -- thank you, Kristine and Cheri -- I have entered the wonderful world of couponing.
I'm still a newbie and make a few mistakes, but we're already noticing a HUGE difference in our grocery bills each month. For example, here's the run down on my short trip to Albertson's yesterday:
Shelf cost (what it would have cost w/o preferred card or coupons): $22.18
Coupons redeemed: $18.06
Total Savings: $24.12 = 108.75%
Pretty sweet if you ask me, and totally worth the time and effort!
