This shopping trip was mainly for my hubby.  He often tells me that I do not keep enough snacks in the house for his lunches.  He figures with all of the time he spends at the gym he should be able to have snacks with his lunch everyday.  I finally got the hint and set out to shop.

I got a few goodies for myself as well (Starbucks ice cream and pistachios).  The snacks that I got for his lunches include; Pringles, Goldfish crackers, Doritos, Popchips and Pita Chips.  That should hold him over for awhile.  I, of course, love my healthy foods so  I made sure to hit up our local organic market.  My total at the organic market was $42.59 and I paid $12.43.  That is a 71% savings on organic products!  Yea!

I know couponing can seem overwhelming if you don’t stock pile, if you only want a few of each item, or if you like to eat healthy, but I assure you it is easier than you might think and fun too!

I only started couponing a few months ago and this is where I am today!  How are you doing?  Keep me updated on your latest successes, tips and questions. Let’s master our money together!

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
