It gets even better!

So, I looked at my receipt from yesterday's shopping trip and realized I had been overcharged almost $20! I went in and it turned out to be the wrong item but was falsely advertised. So since it was their mistake, they gave me 2 big container's of honey for $5 when they were originally $9.99 a piece! Sweet! So, actually, my shopping trip panned out at $180 worth of groceries for approx $71! Almost $110 worth of savings people! I figured out that with the time I spent clipping coupons, I paid myself about $55 an hour. Not bad for a homemaker! Stay tuned for future reports of fabulous savings!

You are 'da man'...well, woman. I need in on some of that action. Were your coupons all from the newspaper? Where did you shop? Let me know. I'm super excited for you. Saving money like that is awesome!!

Okay, so after that comment posted I realized perhaps I should have chosen better words. looks a little bit like one of those naughty four letter words. Sorry!!

Kara! I am so proud of you! Well, can I be proud of you if you are OLDER than me??? Well, I think I can say that, since I pride myself in saving at the grocery store too. THAT BEING SAID, you have COMPLETELY OBLITERATED any prior savings I have ever received at the grocery store. I don't even know if that is POSSIBLE here. We don't get many coupons in our paper AT ALL. Now you have to share all the details on how you've been pulling it off.

You are so amazing! I've heard legends of women getting paid to take groceries from the store on double coupon days, but despite my best efforts I've NEVER had savings like this! I would love to know more!
