That got me to thinking again about why I coupon. Couponing, price matching and shopping sales is a huge part of what allows me to be a stay-at-home mom and wife, and getting to be those two things makes the little bit of time spent each week well worth it!
Today I spent only $55.40 on fifty five items that will either be used during the next week for meals, be taken to an upcoming homeschool meeting or added to my stockpile. Once I made it home, I snapped pictures of my receipt and redeemed multiple app offers (iBotta, Snap, Checkout51) and have already been credited $3.63, making my total spent on this shopping trip only $51.77.
Keep in mind that my stockpile contains enough chicken to get me by until another great sale comes around, and I am blessed to have homegrown beef and eggs, so I did not need to purchase meat this week.
So, yes, you can do it, too!
