Attn: Grocery Store Shoppers...(MOMS!)

Hey guys,
So I'm sure all of us would like to save a few dollars here and there. My mom used to use coupons all the time and told me that I really need to start because with the baby coming and me not working full time, money is going to be really tight.
I thought it would be cool if I could get a group together that would start cutting coupons and pick what ones they want and then send them to one person and that person does the same, so all the coupons will get around to everyone. The paper is $1.50 I think, which 1 coupon would make up for the cost. Usually they are better in the LA or San Fran paper, but I did get the Santa Maria Times a few weekends ago and they had some good bathroom stuff in there. I know it will take awhile to get our coupon book filled up, but I think if we start now it would really benefit all of us. Especially for those buying diapers, wipes and baby food.
Please let me know if you are interested so we can set up some sort of system on who gets whose coupons and then who gets them after the next person. Someone will always get second dibs on the coupons...You of course will have first dibs on the paper you buy, and so forth..

Also, there are a few online sites that have coupons, I will have to get them from my mom. But I have to say that she is crazy and gets stuff for FREE! She would have a coupon for $1.00 and say it's on sell and there's some type of rebate.. she would actually get money back from buying the item! She's crazy though.. and shops at like 3 different stores. One of them being Walgreens and the other is a Grocery Outlet, which makes since to shop at...there's nothing wrong with the food, and of course I wouldn't buy fresh produce or meat there, but anything in a can or box, or cleaner...

Ok so enough of how good this could be for all of us..
Please let me know if you would like to do this.. I really hope some of you want to!

Love you all,

PS my doctor's appointment is tomorrow, I think I'm most anxious about this one than any other!


  1. That sounds time consuming, but I will have many evenings free for the next couple of months so I'm down. A good online tip: always check retailmenot.com before buying on the internet. They have a lot of online coupon codes on there for a ton of sites!

  2. that sounds cool, i would like to know more about it! good luck at the dr. i also want to hear about that.

  3. Ok cool, well I will get some ideas from my mom and then we can talk about it. I think it will take awhile to get started and notice a difference in our grocery bills, but it will work, ive seen it!!
