clipping coupons

I have never been one to clip coupons, it takes too long. But when a friend told me that she was saving up to 50% shopping at Publix and getting free toothpaste at CVS, I had to have a chat with her. She showed me this great blog where a mom takes the time to list all the BOGO sales at publix, and then lists which coupons we can use on top of that and how much money we'll end up saving. I am all for that! So, I've started collecting the Sunday paper and clipping coupons. I went to Publix and saved 50%!!! I was so happy! In this economy, we gotta do what we can to save money. I am very excited to see how much I'll save at the end of the month.
Here's the blog I use. I make my grocery list based on what is on sale:

You can also go here for a list of other grocery stores:

Here's another blog I like to use. You can find printable coupons here:

And finally, at CVS you can collect extra care rewards, and use that towards your next purchases. I am still new to the CVS, so I am not sure how it all works.

Enjoy your shopping!!!!
