I did better than I expected. I foresaw some bumps in the road, however eveerything ran smoothly. It’ has been worth spending $1.75 for the Sunday paper. I have made that back and then some. I have always had to spend a big chunk of my tax return to get my cabinets full, but not htis year. I have been achieveing the same results by using coupons. I am convined that coupons are worth the effort.

Total Spent: $24.06
