Kammy is a way cooler blogger than me, so if you get a chance, check out Reflections from the Red Couch for her hilarious and thought-provoking views on life, autism (two of her three children are on the spectrum), and occasionally alcohol and controlled substances. ;-)
Elliot is a man of few words (which I can appreciate), so included with his awesome tips are commentary from Kammy in italics.
We have a ridiculous purple binder that we keep our coupons in. Elliott maintains it (with help), and if it is embarrassing to take to the store, just remove the coupons you think you will use and leave the beast at home. That said, we have no shame, and have been able to switch gears by having the binder with us when a store is out of something, etc. We got one like this, except that ours has crazy red and yellow stripes in addition to the purple. Our binder has 4 tabs: Food, Beverages, Household Supplies & Personal Care. You can have many more tabs if that’s your deal – but we aim for ease so these work for us.
Did you read that last line?! Elliot helps his family save FIFTY PERCENT... HALF... on their purchases!
Honestly, almost all of this, especially the websites that will do coupon-matching, is new to me! I will admit that I can be lazy-level frugal, but Kammy's hints and tips make me confident that most of these are things that I can put into place for our weekly grocery trips!
