Unfortunately I haven't been using my coupons very much. I am overstock on health and beauty aids for at least 3 years. And I am somewhat stocked on certain foods.
But I've still found that the majority of the food we buy and eat aren't huge coupon savers. One area I've started eating is Oatmeal. I eat it everyday for breakfast, so I suppose I can save a lot on a box of oatmeal.
But overall buying meat and fresh veggies hasn't changed. I've gone to eating frozen veggies, but my DH doesn't like it. He prefer fresh veggies and complains about it. So I try to do one day fresh, one day frozen. Apparently the vitamins provided by frozen veggies are substantially less than fresh/raw veggies because it doesn't withstand the freezing process
Has my couponing this year been a help or hindrance? I'm still debating, I think it's been more work than it's worth. But I did learn about getting free/cheap shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant, etc. So maybe it's not a complete waste of time.
I am doing still doing it but very, very slowly.
