Frugal Tip Tuesday-couponing w/sales

bargain shopping report for this week:

  1. we do as much as possible of our grocery shopping once a week, sometime over the weekend.
  2. we combine childcare & home groceries at the time of purchase, divide them when we get home between the 2 kitchens.
  3. we are getting back into couponing & stocking up by stacking sales+coupons.
  4. our coupon percentage is going up the more I learn.
  5. I am taking a break from making our dishwasher & laundry detergents.
