I finally did a little analysis on the grocery bills over the last seven months. I compared January and February bills to June and July's bills. Obviously there were several variables - like formula in January and more diapers (because Charlotte wasn't potty trained yet) and vacation and trips in June and July, but I must say I was PLEASANTLY surprised. So what were the results??? We are saving $200-$400 a month on groceries since I started clipping - WOWZERS! I am SO excited. Not only does that mean I officially do not have to shop at Walmart anymore (so thankful), but we are saving $2400-$4800 a year on our grocery bill. That is HUGE for our small budget.

This just motivates me to get better and again, I keep asking myself "Why did I wait so long to start doing this." The savings are AMAZING!!!

You need to teach me to be better about this! I'm just not very good at it! I guess the first step would be to get the AJC - the fact that they call me once a day just aggravates me so I haven't signed up. I usually just steal my parents' coupons - if I get to them before my sister does. HAHAHA
