After a night of watching "Extreme Couponing", I had two equal and opposite reactions. One: These people are crazy! $1,000 worth of groceries for $5.67?!?!?! Stockpiles in every room of your house with a backup supply of food that could feed your family for over 4 years?!?! Get a life. Two: I have got to get on this band wagon. I know, I'm a freak.But I will never be able to stock pile like that... First of all, we move to much and that complicates things. Secondly, I am too much of a clean/clutter freak. Although I am not into a major stockpile, I can still get a good size pantry of items that we eat on a regular basis and save money while doing it. Thanks to Jenny at Southern Savers, I have started to learn a LITTLE BIT about couponing and am excited to share my deals. I am no expert, but I am saving a few bucks here and there.
I got a gallon of milk, 3 boxes of Special K, 4 pack of YoPlait Yo-Plus, 3 cans of crescent rolls, 4 frozen dinners, one pack of ciabatta rolls, one gallon Bryers Ice Cream, 3 pk of paper towels, Duncan Hines Brownies, Kraft Singles, Kraft Shredded Cheese and Uncle Bens Rice. Retail around $47, I paid $16! Yay. Not super great, but a good start!!
Also, I had some great coupons for Kohl's and got a nice entry rug, rug pad and also a bathrooms trashcan. Retail: $50, I paid $3! I was really proud of that one.
I ran my first 13 miles on Wednesday. It was pretty tough. After talking with a couple of my friends I am convinced that the gps app on my iPhone is not entirely accurate. I really believe it was more like 14 miles...but I thought I would run until the app said 13..I am slow and was pretty worn out after, but I am hoping to do it again next week to be a little more prepared. Two weeks until the big race! Go Team Libby!
