But as much as I read her (funny yet informative) blog, I still pay a lot of money every month for groceries.
But then great things happen, like what I am about to share, that make me "see the light":
Our boy's birthday was this week. So of course we went shopping the night before for birthday presents. We picked up an OSU T-shirt, blanket, and some Nerf darts, along with some air freshener (for our house, not a birthday gift).
But then ..., I whipped out my gift card I received from listening to a bid on gutters (something we needed at the time) - bing - minus $25
and then I showed the clerk my rewards card, and the 2 coupons I had from a flyer - bing - minus 4
and then I laid down the Money Off coupon I got from the store for being a rewards card customer - bing - minus 6.12
Now my total was $4.43; but then the girls contributed $4 for their brother's gift!
Score! I paid 43 cents!
