Where Shopping Is A Pleasure

I have completed the first installment of my January grocery shopping. While at the grocery store I was amazed at the number of shoppers who were matching coupons to sale items along with me. You had your senior citizens and your stay-at-home moms meticulously calculating and sorting coupons as they went along. After purchasing newspapers for the last 8 weeks and then buying duplicates this past Sunday, I had a lot of coupons to use. I had a least 3 of each coupons for each item I purchased today. I was able to keep my cool by staying organized. I used 36 coupon on a total of 87 items including produce and meat.
