Couponing has become a hobby for me. I have been shopping the last two days and have saved my family of five $106.56 spending ONLY $37.58 and everything I bought I have a use for. I agree there are coupons distributed to make you buy things that you would never buy normally but you have to know your boundaries. Take time and look at all the ads and shop around dont just go to one store and buy everything there. Do your homework take you time and make lists. While your there check the clearance rack and buy your air fresheners there and household items before you make your way down that isle!!! Here are my items for Monday & Tuesday:
