OH MY WORD! I am sooo jealous. I just went to Target and sent $140 and thought I was great for saving $40. AGH! I need some major coupon counseling. I need someone to hold my hand and say, "Use this coupon and buy this product." I have got to cut down on my grocerey budget or I will never be able to be a stay at home mom. I am working full time just for our grocerey money. Problem!? I vote yes!

Sunie, Tiffy & Tina - Thanks!!!

Crissa - no worries honey, we'll have you couponing in no time! Send me an email if you want - let's chat!
