$3.61... Not to bad for 26 items on a quick run through Kroger.
I've set up a date for our church plant Faith Family to have their first class on couponing. Everyone should learn. However if the grocery stores in your area don't double $1.00 coupons then the deals are not as good. Sometimes it's cheaper to buy off brand. In my town it always cheaper to buy name brand. It's funny 2 years ago before I started this coupon thing, I never filled a grocery cart and rarely bought name brand items except for cheese, mayonnaise, ketchup and a few others. There are some things that just don't taste the same.
My first ladies night with Faith Family I had 18 ladies show up. I was so geeked! It was a great time of getting to know each other. It's so hard being in the YMCA for only a few hours on Sunday. It makes building relationships hard. Just a small challenge of being a mobile church.
