To my freinds and family if you do not have and can not find one of the coupons that I have listed. Please feel free to contact me. I more then likely have extras. Also feel free to contact me for other coupons you may need I might well have them and if I do not well no harm done LOL (Happy Couponing)
Saved % is figured on the actual price not the sale price. For lack of room I could not put the actual price in this chart. So the pecentage includes the store mark down and all coupons.
For those of you who do not know me. I am a single father of three wonderful kids.
I use to believe saving .25 cents here or there did not matter. But when my wife was
removed from the house for physically and mentally abusing the kids I quickly learned different.. After thousands of dollars in lawyers fees for the divorce Were I received sole legal and physical custody of the kids and because Iowa is a no fault state I had to pay many of her bills as well as my own. In seven years I have only received one $75.00 child support payment. So we went through a very ruff time things we took for granted soon became luxuries. We went for a year and a half with no cable, internet, or digital converter box so the kids had DVDs to watch. We learned to save money making our bread and noodles from scratch. We received a lot of support from my family and friends for witch me and the kids are very grateful. Even in those tuff times I was not a into couponing. It took my eldest daughter to force me to watch the show Extreme couponing on TLC. That is when I really started to get excited about it.
Do not get me wrong I am no expert and I can not save the kid of money they do. But I quickly learned I could often easily cut my grocery bill by 40%-60% that makes a big difference. With all that we have learned we are now in a much better position and have those luxuries back. That is how I became a couponer. So now we always have enough food for my family and extra to share with others when they find themselves in tuff times.
