I got an email this morning from Kassie, telling me about her shopping trip!! Kassie isn't completely new to couponing, but she said that before she would only use coupons here or there. She made a trip to Wal-Mart to buy groceries and other items to last her family for 2 weeks. She ended up spending around $207 and saving $53.37!! That's a savings of a little over 20%!!
In my opinion, Wal-Mart is the hardest store to really see big savings at. They usually don't have great in store specials...buy x get y free, gift card promotions, register rewards, extra care bucks, etc...so saving over $50 in one shopping trip is really impressive!!
Great job Kassie!!
How are you doing saving money? Remember start small and do what you can...a savings of $5 a week adds up to $260 a year!! Keep on going and saving and you will be amazed at where you are a month from now, 3 months from now, or a year from now!! Good luck!
I really would love to hear how you guys are doing...let me know!
