Next Post: Some how-to tips, links, and pictures of my binder. Yes, there is a method to my madness.

***POST UPDATE: As per Kris’s request, I updated the post to include actual money spent and saved and checked all of my math – some of which was incorrect. I also want to add that some of the retail prices would have been cheaper at other stores, but after comparing the sale/coupon pricing, it was still cheaper to purchase the items at King Soopers and Walgreens. These posts only include the sale/coupon deals, and as you can tell by quantities, I am trying to create a SMALL stockpile for the months our financial support wanes and my grocery budget has to shrink. I think that is one of the smartest things our ancestors did – save and put stuff away to get through the leaner times. Happy saving, friends!***
