I'm not great at this whole couponing thing. When I first started, I'd find a coupon for a frozen family sized lasagna, see that my grocery store had it on sale, and think, well, I have to buy that! And I would, and bring it home, and cook it and it tasted terrible and we were all miserable. We eat a lot of fresh, whole, real foods, so the convenience foods that you see a lot of coupons for just don't cut it around here.
So I thought, well, I guess that means I can't coupon! Oh well. Then I spoke with a friend who has an amazing coupon blog (Saving With Shellie) and she gave me a virtual slap to the head. First, yes, you can occasionally find coupons for fresh vegetables, meat, and milk and cheese, but mostly... dummy - you get coupons for EVERYTHING ELSE that you have to buy, thus freeing up some of your diaper/paper towel/underwear budget to spend on carrots and filet mignon.
It was like a very dim light went off in my head. Dim because probably everybody else in the world had already figured this out and I was just catching on. So now, unless it's going in my mouth, I refuse to pay retail for it.
So while this blog may be about food, you'll see a ton of other deals because if I can save you money on gas or diapers, that will free up some of your budget to buy groceries - and that's what I want to do!
Now - we all have those nights where either the house is totally bare of food because you couldn't stand the thought of dragging all three kids to the store (or maybe that just happens in my house?) or you just don't feel like cooking - this is an awesome deal for new Saveology customers... Spend $5 and get a $10 Papa John's card. Buy one of these and hide it - break it out on one of those nights when you just can't take it!
