I used to match coupons to sales a lot. But when Little R came along it seemed like too much work to hit all the stores and drag an infant and preschooler along. Little R is now 3 and I have decided to try to start couponing again. I never did as good as the extreme couponers and I have a really hard time passing up a deal once I know about it. I never ended up cutting down on my grocery budget because of this but we had a small stockpile of food, way more than we have on hand at any given time now.
So I've asked my parents to start saving the coupon inserts for me again. I don't get a paper. They do, but they don't use the coupons.
I'm going to try to just watch the sales for Acme and Giant Eagle. (Giant Eagle does the double coupons up to 99 cents, Acme doesn't). Plus my usual Aldi shopping. I can usually run into a store real quick on my lunch hour so I'm not dragging the kids in and out everywhere.
I guess we'll see how I do.
