Smart shopping…

My daughter-in-law took a couponing class and has become serious about saving money on her grocery bill.  You can read more about it here at her blog. She has inspired me to get into smart shopping.  I tried to start this past Saturday during our trip to Walgreens. I’m happy with how I did; I spent $51.00 but save $67.00, so I would say that was a good shopping trip.

So I hear you asking “how do did I do that?”  Well…let me tell you!

Here’s what I bought:
