Shopping with GrocerySmarts

About a month ago I went to coupon class. Now that may sound crazy to some, but i figured, the more I save the more cooking i get to do. So i went to the class and she taught us how to save 50%-100% on grocery items by using this website and the Sunday newspaper. I decided to try it out and i get 3 Sunday newspapers a week, giving me 3 copies of every coupon in each coupon book. Yesterday I tried it out for the first time using the website and my coupons I'd collected and bought all the items below:

4- Crest Toothpastes
3- Lady Speed Stick Deodorants
2- Herbal Essences Moose
4- Herbal Essences Shampoos/Conditioners
2- Right Guard Deodorants
2- Gillette Facial Scrubs
1- Gillette Facial Cream
3- Gillette Shaving Gels
4- Gillette Shower Wash
2- Band-aid Packages

Total Price without coupons or discounts was: $100.59
I saved this much using Discounts/Coupons (all of which are posted on that website every week): $72.77
This is the Price I Paid- $27.82 (which is about $1/item... and these are not cheap items)
Meaning I saved 72% on these items!!! Is that crazy or what? We needed to get 1 of each of these items, so we would have spent probably $25 just to get them, but this was i got enough for 4-6 months! We are so excited about this way of saving and using coupons since we are trying to work on our food storage!

I have to admit I am not the creator for most of these recipes! Most of these come from friends or the Foodnetwork, and other websites. I usually tweak it, but i get them from other sources. THANK YOU OTHER PEOPLE,but please... use them, circulate them, make them your own. Just make sure you give the credit to the right person, which isn't always me!
