Just call me the crazy coupon lady...or maybe don't..I am pretty sensitive!

Okay, I have been having way too much fun grocery shopping lately....I know what you may be thinking, she really is crazy...but this new found coupon thing....it really is fun. It has been a few weeks of trial and error, and getting the ins and outs of the coupon world...there is a new language to learn, strategy... (they call it scenarios) and pretty much the competitive drive to get the best deal. I must say, as I re read what I just wrote...I do sound nuts, but I am having fun, does that count for anything? I think the neatest part is that sometimes they even pay you to take things from the store...legally. I look up to dear, patient..I must repeat...patient, hubby and kind of look guilty, like maybe some one will be upset, that I am actually making money on some of these purchases! But generally, the kind till person is that politically correct?, looks up and smiles and says something like, did you bring me any of these good coupons? In the stores, you see women with binders, and coupons and almost always (talking from my two weeks of experience) when they see you with your envelopes, binder or equivalent, smile and mention some good deal and tip, always wanting to tell you the best deal, or better way. So here I go, I will show you the first shopping trip and the results and dollar amount and see what you think.
