Home Economics 101

Wow!!! Life can be crazy busy. My new addiction, I mean endeavor, is couponing. You would think that I would have already been doing this with 8 children but my idea of couponing and what I am learning now are totally different. I LOVE, LOVE this couponing adventure. I am already saving around 50% on our groceries and household supplies while still developing a stockpile. Our goal is to have a 3-6 month stockpile in our garage to "shop" from daily. So far, we are on track.

It has been an education for sure. It is a new lingo with a new mindset. It is a lot of work up front but once everything is in place it will require less time. It is so much fun to ring up my purchases and then watch the total drop dramatically. What is super cool is that I can teach my kids this frugal lifestyle and it is painless. Actually, it is a pleasure. Pretty cool to shop and not dread the cash register total.

So, I think I will name this subject Home Economics 101. :) Stay tuned for more updates on deals I have learned about and how I scored them.

Thanks, of course, to Jesus for pointing the way on how to be a good steward with what He has blessed us with and how to share it with others.
