I guess I have sort of started a new project. I have been trying lately to really pay attention to coupons and sales so that we can save money on our grocery bill. We usually average about $150 a week on groceries for our little family of three. To me it seemed like we should be able to do better than that. I picked up a subscription to the Denver Post Sunday paper for the coupons and really started to study the sale ad for our local grocery store. Also, I go online and look for downloadable coupons. So far, since I have started this approximately two weeks ago I have saved over $90! For me that is really good! Usually I save like between five and ten dollars because I shop so randomly and without a plan.
One thing that is currently giving me knots in my stomach is Christmas shopping. I was hoping to have it ALL done before Thanksgiving but there is no way that is going to happen. I have my daughter pretty much finished, just need to pick up a few stocking stuffers, but really, what is easier than shopping for an almost three year old? I have like one thing each for my mom and Dad, a couple of things for my husband and that is pretty much it. I guess everyone else will be getting gift certificates. sigh. That isn't my favorite way to do things, but it seems to be the easiest. Any help in this department would be appreciated.
