Leave it to a mom to get groceries for pennies

BlogHer Original Post

There's always something to learn out there on the internet. The nice thing about blogs is that instead of slick-talking informercial drones, you can get testimonials from real people doing real things.

Enter hardcore couponing, done by real moms.

I first sat up and took notice when Belinda of Ninja Poodles posted about her experiences:

[T]he RUSH I got when that checkout lady said, "You saved $142.19 on your order today?" All I could think of was, MAN, MY GRANDMOTHER IS GONNA BE CRAZY PROUD OF ME WHEN SHE READS THIS!

How did she do it? She followed the "Cheaper Than Therapy" directions of one Attila the Mom. I don't mind telling you, Attila the Mom is my new HERO.

Read her entire 4-part series to learn how she does it, and how you (assuming you're in the United States; sorry, international friends!) can do it, too.

Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4

Not convinced you want to wade through all of that? Would a gander at a mind-blowing sample receipt change your mind?

Forget "the hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world." I may just start saying "the hand that cuts the coupons is the hand that rules the world."
