  • I save half my bill.

    I look at the sales paper on Wednesday when it comes out online. I make a list of what I want/need that is on sale. I mark what I have paper coupons for and what I have eCoupons for.

    I get them all together and ready. I buy that stuff. When I need something that isn't on sale, I try to have a coupon. I try to set it up to only buy when on sale to avoid paying a lot.

    I buy, milk, bread, meat, veggies, different stuff. LOL normal stuff.

  • I buy the paper to get the coupons or go to coupons and things by dede (just google it) and you can buy coupons of high value for cheap, its sometimes just as cheap as buying the sunday paper. Soo... then i go to, frugal girls, i heart cvs etc and find out what deals are going on.... They lay them out for you and you just follow them. CVS is great, get a cvs flyer and check out the deals that give you extra bucks, i get free stuff all the time. You have to go to these sites and read about how to do it... follow the pros!
