Extreme Couponing

I don't really want to get into couponing, because I'm a believer of the old adage "if you shop with coupons you buy more than you would without them."  For example . . . did I really need four Keebler products?  No, I don't even need one.  Though, I have been craving double stuffed EL Fudge's for like a year now.  So that'll be nice to satisfy.  But I digress --

On my 9:00am grocery run today, I saved 40%.  That's right 40%!  It feels so good to save like that!  Milk is so cheap this week, so I bought two gallons (the limit) a day for three days in a row.  I also have a freezer full of grilling sausages.  And my regular cupboard full of cereal.  Don't worry, it wasn't all junk food.  I got salad mixes, spinach and baby carrots at a discount price too.

On Monday I'm headed over to Wal-Greens to buy little swimmer diapers for Reid, I'll practically get them for free after I combine three different coupons.  I can't wait!

All in all, I hope I can be more coupon savy . . . but I also hope I don't waste lots of time and money trying to find a deal I don't really need.  If anyone has tips let me know.  I'd like to hear where other's go to look for their coupons.

I'd imagine this will just be a phase, and it too shall pass.

That show is crazy! Their houses are overtaken by 100 boxes of toothpaste and 900 rolls of toilet paper. Anyway, I agree with you that you should save were you can.
I always hit up and Savvyshopper is huge in my ward.
