I am detirmed!

I am detirmined to learn how to use coupons!!  I have never used more than 1 or 2 at a time and never saved any significant amount of money trying ... well today that ends.  Tomorrow I will try it out.  My day has been spent trying to learn how to shop with coupons and my head is spinning.  I have printed dozens.  I have accomplished nothing around the house though.  But if I can learn how to feed my family on $50 a week I will have accomplished my goal!!  Any tips are encouraged and welcomed!  I have to say though we have Walmart, Walgreens and Rite Aid in town.  We have no real supermarkets.  Katrina wiped them all out and no one has been brave enough to reopen.  So 99% of my shopping is done at Walmart.  We have a Winn Dixie about 18 miles away and a Rouses about 8 miles away.  I shop at those rarely, but would prefer Winn Dixie.  I would have to bring a cooler with me in the car though! 


  1. W mainly use wal mart as well. It's hard to go to other stores because it's just so darn convenient! We do have a Brookshires here, and really, it's better than wal mart as far as the fresh foods go.

    Don't forget that wal mart also takes competitor's adds and I think Walgreen's does too. Since you could very easily make the trip to Winn Dixie to do your shopping (the $$ you'd save just might pay for the gas), IMO, that would make them a viable competitor! ; )

    Great blog! I am a follower now!
