So yesterday I was telling you about my new coupon adventure. I'm going to convert you all because this really is worth it. Here's how my trip went.


4 Jars of Ragu & 2 Jars of Mayo - Total spent $5.48

Fred Meyer

3 bags of chips
2 boxes cereal
3 boxes crackers
2 pints sour cream
4- 12 packs pop - Total spent $26.24

My total savings was 74%! Granted....the chips and the crackers are more snack foods, but thats ok because these are things we go through with my snacky husband! And those are the most expensive items at the grocery store. I'd say I did pretty good for my first small trip.

First thing I want you to do. . your local newspaper and ask them if they have a deal for you to receive 5 copies of the Sunday newspaper. Yes FIVE!!! Four at the least. They will most likely have a good deal for you. The Times News in Twin Falls has a coupon clippers deal which is 7 day a week delivery and 4 extra on Sunday for $18.00 a month until I cancel. That gives me 5 copies on Sunday. I figured it's about .40 a paper. You can't beat that. You really only need the Sunday paper, but some will require you to take all 7 days. You don't want to just go buy it every Sunday because it will cost you around $1.50 per paper. Yikes!

Next thing I want you to do... . go to and read the 10 days to become a coupon clipper. It will give you all the scoop. And be patient, this poor girls website keeps going down due to all the traffic. So just keep checking if it doesn't work.

Third thing, add these websites to your favorites:

I'll keep you updated on my different trips to give you ideas and to see how it works!
