I have been half attempting to coupon for the last month and a half. I haven't been very successful. Mostly because I went to the store with 4 or 5 coupons that I was determined to use, just to find out that item was sold out. (Because everyone else in Utah County is trying to get the same item.)

Well, I went to Albertson's on Monday with a list and all my coupons. I walked out with $219 worth of groceries for $105! That over 50% savings.

And, I am not wasting them. In the past week and a half, we have only ate out once. And that was for Chris's Tucanos birthday meal. With all the food I have in the kitchen, I bet I could make it 2 weeks without going to the grocery store (except for milk.) However, then I would miss out on all the deals at Albertson's this week.

Also, we are slowing building up some food storage. All we need is a can opener and we would have plenty of soup to break out.
