  • That just means he want you not to spend money.
    I told my DH I would give up my car if. Just to be able to be a SAHW again.

  • well, really..all my money does is buy groceries. so its not odd. sometimes i feel like i waste gas driving to work..so it would be better for me to just stay home. i don't want to totally quit..just cut back to maybe 2 days

  • What grocery stores do you have near you. That can make a big difference.

  • You have to look into their coupon policies. Some have special days where they will double up your coupons. Some places allow you to stack coupons. I have nowhere around me that allows for either so unless I want to travel quite a ways I just use coupons normally.

  • I agree with melborni,, there is not 1 store in my area that doubles coupons! So even though I can reduce the bill, no where near enough to quit my job! I also think that the show is a bit misleading as far as meat, milk, eggs!
