Still got it!

Yesterday, I bought $125.25 worth of groceries for $69.59. I saved $55.66 using coupons and shopping the sale circulars, for a savings of 44%. Not too shabby!

I know that $55.66 isn't really a lot of money, especially compared to what I would be bringing home if I had an actual job, but considering it only took me about an hour and a half to go through the coupons and sales flyers, it's not a bad return on the time investment. It would probably have been even more of a savings if we hadn't bought so much junk food. Oops.

It isn't a ton of money, but for grocery savings, it's amazing. Especially when you consider how short term you keep groceries around. It's not like you're buying something you can use repeatedly or keep for years. They last for a week or two. Good stuff. I need to start doing this, too.
