My friend Shannon and I were so excited to meet with a few of you last night at our coupon class (we loved meeting you all!) We may have overwhelmed you (we both talk way too fast . . . ) but here are a few links we promised to share that may help you out:
- Before clipping a single coupon, first determine your family’s grocery budget. (See more about our our family budgets for groceries over HERE, and you’ll also want to check this out.
- If you’re totally new to couponing, start at the beginning.
- Identify top prices on specific groceries before you go to the grocery store.
- Learn how to use coupons at Target
- You can make huge changes in your families grocery budget just by choosing to shop differently.
- Many items that you purchase can be frozen to lengthen their shelf life.
- Your grocery shopping experience will be so much more enjoyable when you have a happy cashier.
- Check out all the current deals this week at Target, CVS, Walgreens, Publix, Kroger, Wal-Mart, Amazon and several more stores
- And, if you don’t have a coupon to your name (bless your heart!), you can start by printing a few over at Coupons.com, Red Plum, Coupon Network and Smart Source.
- Baking Supplies, Cooking Soups, Spices, Seasonings – November/December (Holidays)
- Meat, Condiments – Summertime (Grilling Season)
- Produce – Summertime (Stockpile things like green peppers and onions to freeze for winter casseroles, soups, etc.; freeze fruit for winter baking – strawberries, blackberries, bananas, etc.)

- Free Freezer Printable: What To Freeze & How To Freeze It

- Brother Laser Printer without Wireless Capability (currently $86.99 ~ I’ve seen this one for as low as $65 so you may want to wait on it as well!)
