Some of you have sent me an email asking how it is done.. I went to THE KRAZY COUPON LADYS BLOG and started reading where it says "beginners" up at the top..
I asked my family to start collecting/sending me any coupons they didn't want and I simply buy 2 Sunday Kansas City Papers.
I started cutting coupons and putting them in a binder with baseball card holders (all found at Wally). I bought tabs, inserted and separated the tabs by my local Wal-Mart aisles (since that is really the largest most convenient and frequented store I shop at).
Wal-Mart allows price matching and will beat any competitors prices. That's how we save money here. We collect all the ads from the larger cities around us and simply take them in to Wal-Mart-They give you the lower price. THE TRICK IS, to add your coupons ON TOP OF THIS! That is when you save TONS! It does take organization & time but well worth it..
I did a "small haul" at Wal-Mart today stacking coupons and price matching.
TOTAL before PM (price-matching) and Q's (coupons)

THIS IS WHAT I GOT...
