First of all, check out my story tonight at 10:
I love this story. Cindy Zappolo asked me if I could teach her how to coupon. I can't tell you how many people write me asking me for their help. I am so glad that we are making an impact! The $60 we save you at the grocery store could end up being $60 you could spend on a bill. Or a nice pair of shoes. Whatever it is, I don't judge.
I keep telling people it's not hard to save money. There's no shame in it. You don't want to be the jerk who overspends on things. At the same time, you don't want to be the crazy hoarder on those extreme reality shows. Trust me, there's a balance. You can do it. I used to drop $150 to $200 in a trip to Walmart, Costco or the grocery store. Now, I'm amazed if I spend more than $30 in one trip. Seriously.
So... I'm hoping we'll do this again. I hope you'll check out the story for 10 to see how easy it is to save money. Also, I need to give special thanks to Amanda from The Frugal Beach Bum Blog. She took out her own time and gave up her own coupons to help Cindy. She was completely amazing in the whole ordeal. She taught Cindy how to live better!
In the meantime, there are some pretty good deals this week, including 50-cent cereal and free iced tea. Who's ready for some summer sweet tea?!
