Two weeks ago on grocery shopping day I shared with you my first couponing experience. Yesterday was shopping day once again so I gave couponing another go. My last trip was a little slow and confusing, so this trip I tried to make things more simple.
I wrote out my shopping list in coordination with WM Jackson's layout, listing my "Non-Food" items first. I didn't have ANY food coupons this shopping trip, but I had tons of toiletry/home goods coupons. I paper clipped all my coupons in the same order as listed on my shopping list and to the top right next to the Non Food section. I then listed all my food items on the bottom.
The shopping trip went well! We were outta there in under an hour (which is ALWAYS my goal) and I saved a total of about $17.00!
Keep in mind, my goal is not to become one of those couponing Mom's with stock-piles of more diapers than she knows what to do with. I want to use coupons ONLY for items that I currently need. I don't have the space to store extras of everything.
Couponing Attempt # 2.....a success! It feels good to save money!
