Proud of my little sis…

I am sooo proud of my little sister Ashleigh! She started getting the newspaper one month ago. A little coupon beginner. A newbie to the extreme. I love how far she has come!!!   Check out this email she sent me:

I started getting the paper about a month ago and this was the first week I had enough coupons saved up to begin couponing. I cant believe how much I got for so little money. I was so happy when I got home and added up my reciepts.

4 simply lemonades
1 mustard
2 pickles
4 kraft salad drssings
4 kraft BBQ sauce
12 boxes mac & cheese
18 skippy peanut butter
3 taco bell hard shells
2 bountiful salad dressings
8 nesquick choc milk
7 starkist albacore tuna
7 kraft pasta salads
2 kraft singles american cheese

TOTAL SAVED: $165.31

Can you believe it? I was so amazed. It feels so good to get a good deal.


Way to go ASH!! Love you girl!!!8 Comments

  4. Ashleigh says:

    I called mom today and told her all about my shopping trip. She thought it was pretty cool that I saved so much. I am still feeling like I’m on top of the world. woohoo! I am already looking forward to my future savings. Thanks for all your help. Your the best sis ever!

  5. Stephenie says:

    That is awesome! How many papers are you getting? I am so excited to learn how to do this…

  6. I think she gets 4 Sunday papers delivered to her house. Correct me if I am wrong Ash.

  7. Ashleigh says:

    yep. I get 4 papers on sunday. It takes at leaste a month to get some coupons saved up but once that month is over it is time to bring on the savings. This is a great way to work on food starage too. I am still stoked and excited… just in case you couldn’t tell.

  8. Stephenie says:

    Thanks for letting me know. I will get my 4. I really want to follow your examples. How much time do you spend each week shopping, etc…?
