I Spent $60.00 for all this and saved just over $60.00
I have been holding onto coupons and just waiting patiently for sales on the things I needed. 
Land-O-Lakes butter was one of the biggest deals. This butter at walmart is still $3.46 each and I got each for $1.25 !! and the Aqua juice I got each for $1.39- this is a $4. a bottle juice!And those baby wipes is only paid $1.50 for. Sooooo........... can be done!

I am finding that patience is a key to this.
And if I am holding onto a coupon for something that I really don't NEED, but certainly can USE, I wait until I see that sale. And If there never is one, and the coupon expires, I have to be OK with that. I didn't NEED it right away. It's different if I am holding onto a coupon for milk and there isn't a sale so I just don't ever buy milk. No, I NEED milk. But I don't NEED crescent rolls, however when I get them for .35-.70 cents each, that's where the patience pays off!

No Money For Coupons

So a common question about coupons is, what if I don't even have money to shop with coupons, how do they help me?
I happen to be in a situation where I am not able to shop like I used to using coupons to help buy regular groceries or even help stock up on thing. BUT, I keep cutting them out or printing them off and checking sales because there are still ways to get free stuff!
This week at Meier they had a sale on Huggies jumbo pack baby wipes for $5. I happen to have three $5 coupons for that! so, I get 3 jumbo packs of baby wipes for free. 
Charmin Toilet paper I did the same thing with, I got it free from Kroger!
So keep looking and searching coupons and sites. It is never too much trouble when you can get FREE STUFF!!!
