I'm being featured!!!

You all know I have shared my lists with you from SavingsAngel.com? Well now I am being featured in their weekly newsletter :) I am so excited!
I love savingsangel.com. I have tried other "list" sites, but I do not save the kind of money save by using them. My average weekly shopping is down to $17 a week. And I'm feeding a family of 4!
I urge you all to at least check SavingsAngel.com out. Try it for a month, then compare your savings to the way you go it now. I think you will find that you are pleasantly surprised by numbers.

There a lot of whys people start couponing. All of them begin with the need/want to save money on part of your budget so that you can have money to spend in other parts of your budget. My family is  no different.

My husband and I both worked and was making well over $60,000 a year. All of a sudden we got a dose of reality. I was laid off. For the first time  in my life, I started receiving unemployment benefits. Then my husband had to have back surgery and once he was released, he was laid off. So there we were, both of us getting unemployment. Making less than half of what we had grown used to. Last year it finally got so bad that I turned to the internet. I had to find ways to cut my bills. We do not use credit cards so we do not have that debt, but the debt of every day kinds of things.
I decided to start using coupons, and I found savings blogs. Then I watched an interview with couponmom. I thought, you know, when my children were little, I used to go through the sales ads and match up my coupons to feed a family of 5 on $50 or less. I should start doing that again.
So I delved into everything I could find about couponing, saving money and how to make this work.I learned all about stock piling.  My first week I was amazed at how much money I saved. I had purchased $475 worth of groceries for only $205 dollars. So I started getting all of my files set up to help me save.
For months I continued saving money, right at about 46% savings every week. Not bad huh?
Then I found SavingsAngel.com My savings have shot through the roof! What was once a 34-46% savings, is now a 75-80% savings, and that is every week. My weekly spent amount is down to $17 a week! That is spread over a 6 month period and I'm feeding a family of 4.
My husband has since gone back to work and I am a nursing student, and I am still couponing! This is not a passing fad for me, it is now my lifestyle. I look at things in a much different way than I used to. I'm not cheap, I'm frugal and enjoy the game of it! My husband laughs but enjoys everything I do. He loves the way I can get the deal and save him money :D
Please check out savingsangel.com , find the greatest way to save money for you and your family. Come back and share your list with me, and then we can celebrate your first big save together! I would love to hear about your first save big shopping trip!
I will continue to share my lists as seeing is believing and I want you to see what Im saving, and know that you can believe it and you can get the same kinds of savings!

Have a Blessed day/night,
