I have now been intense about couponing for three months, and I am starting to see the positive effects of shopping the sales with coupons. My grocery bill for the months of May and June were $500 each.This amount is for a family of four--me, my husband, a 20 y.o. son and 13 y.o. daughter. As of July 24th, my total grocery spending for July stands at $330. Also, we have plenty of food in the pantry and fridge to last well beyond the end of the month. I know I will be going to the store for milk and produce this weekend, but I should end the month well within my goal of $400 for July. Hooray!
