With my Giveaway for the Couponizer I had a lot of response from you guys, saving at the grocery store is a HUGE thing. Let’s face it, we all would like to spend less on things that we “need”, if we can and put the money that we save towards things we LOVE and WANT and not things we have to buy like grocery items.
So that had me thinking, why not help my readers get started with saving. I got some e-mails asking for help on how to save and cut down your grocery budget.
I started couponing 3 1/2 years ago and since have helped a lot of families to jump on the bandwagon to keep your hard earned money in your pocket to use for fun things.
Our Grocery budget for a family of 5 ( 2 adults, a teen, a tween and a toddler) and 2 fur babies ( a Beagle and a Lhasa Apso) is $50.00 a week, that includes everything we buy from groceries to toiletries to household cleaners, just about anything a family needs.
There are items, that I learned I will NEVER pay for ever again. I do have to say you can’t be picky with your products. Yes I know, if you are brand loyal, you still can save money, it’s just not as much as a savings OR you have to buy more at the time of the “brand” sale to keep you for the next sale.
In my opinion we now eat better then we did before we used coupons, and spend a lot less. We used to buy generic everything because it was “cheaper”. Not anymore, now we have Kraft Mac N Cheese, Tostitos chips, Pepsi / Coke products , Betty Crocker Brownies you name it we pretty much got it and all with coupons…
Okay now you ask how do I get there and what can I get. I will teach you how to coupon and spend less on the things you need to buy and save for the things you WANT!!
I don’t charge for any of my knowledge, because why should anyone pay to start saving? After all, didn’t they teach you, if you have to invest into a “job” first, it’s a scam?? I love my readers and family too much to make money of anyone, yup I’m a sucker…. but guess what… I love what I do and I love even more to share with anyone who wants to listen and learn.
So my idea is, I will have a Coupon Class online each Sunday, I will post new tips and tricks you need to know about couponing, saving and anything else you need to bring your grocery budget to the total that you like, I can help you with your goal, keep you encouraged to keep saving.. and I hope we all can encourage each other along the way.
I will be available pretty much all day on Sunday on Facebook and Twitter and will take questions and help you guys out as much as I can. Of course, you can e-mail me any time during the week, the night or whenever a question pops up.. it doesn’t have to be just Grocery store… we save on anything our family needs.. so ask, ask away….I’m all up to help you save your Green at the Store…
How does that sound???? Would love if you join me in this Coupon Class Adventure and give me your feedback… A lot of work goes into creating the posts and ideas and I really would like to know if it is helpful to you or if I’m wasting my time, if no one will read it ….. it would mean so much to me to know.
That being said….. Let’s start saving and keep an eye out for some savings tips and ideas….get more bang for your hard earned BUCK !! and live like a King….while NOT breaking the Bank….
