I hope you enjoy our new look we have goin' on here! So here's the latest with us: In all honesty, it's been a rough end to the summer.
We've been struggling with choosing which bills to pay over others, and we've had a suuuper empty cabinet more than I'd like to admit. There have been a few strings of days when, quite frankly, we didn't know if we were going to eat that day or not. I recently became a fan of couponing--which in case you don't know what that means, (where have you been?!) it means you clip excess amounts of coupons and shop strictly to whatever will save you the most money.
And believe me: it HAS worked! But what I'm coming to discover about couponing is that we can kiss our efforts to eat healthy "goodbye!" Seriously, the only kinds of companies that put out printable coupons include: Kraft, Lays, Bisquick, Coca-Cola, Betty Crocker, etc. Not ONCE have I found a coupon like, "Buy 12 apples and save $1!"
I honestly can't remember the last time I bought fresh produce...how sad is that?! I think the last thing I bought was frozen vegetables, but that was only because of my coupons! UGH!
How do you guys save money on groceries?
We don't normally go out to eat on a regular basis, so I'm just wondering what we're missing here in our efforts.
