A little history on my couponing experience…

January 14, 2011 at 11:46 am Leave a comment

  • Our grocery budget before couponing was $400 per month for Paul and myself.  
  • We used to do all of our grocery shopping once a month at Wal-Mart and often bought the Wal-Mart brand products. 
  • We used to think that Publix was the most expensive grocery store in town, but when we compared prices with Bi-Lo’s prices Publix is usually always cheaper. 
  • Now I shop weekly at Publix and sometimes 1 other grocery store depending on sales that week and only buy name brand products.  
  • My pantry is now full of name brand items that I have paid half of what Wal-Mart brand would cost…and it is usually better!
  • To coupon you cannot be brand loyal.
  • Learn to try different brands when they are on sale. 
  • You will learn to like what’s on sale and even get to branch out and try different things you probably wouldn’t have had it not been on sale.

Take my poll to the right and guess how much my monthly grocery budget is now.
