Again, I will say for those of you with a grocery store that triples and doubles coupons I would do that TO SOME DEGREE. Also, if you have a store that has lower prices for members take the two minutes to fill out the little card. I do that EVEN ON VACATION. Yes, I may never go there again, but would you pass up a dollar bill lying on the sidewalk. NO! Fill out the card because the savings are huge. I have done that all the way from California to Tennessee... NO KIDDING!! I may never use them again, but I saved money that time if nothing else. And no, I don't do it here because my stores don't do that. Fortunately, they just charge "mostly" fair prices. I go to the store and milk is $1.99 or $2.59 or whatever. I don't have to be a member to get that price versus the usual $3.99 like I have seen in a lot of states. There are no buy one for $3.99 or two for $4.99 weird sales (that one is big in New Mexico)... and I have to say I am glad, because I would so feel like I had to do the weird sales thing and get the best bargain.
I am SO going to have to tell you about our frugal vacationing! That will give you all a laugh! It's all about saving on the things that really don't matter to you and spending on the things that do.... uhmmmm.... next time... don't you love it when someone leaves you hanging?! LOL!
