To new adventures...

About a year ago I stumbled upon a community that I had been previously unaware of-- the wild world of coupons.  I don't remember exactly what I was looking for, but through some Googling I wound up on a blog, Couponing to Disney, and before I knew it I was hooked.  Of course, I knew coupons existed before this experience and I had used them, but I had no idea how far they could go!

After a year of shopping for our home using "couponing" techniques, I have brought our monthly grocery and household cost down from $450-$500 to around $250.  Initially, I was buying nearly everything and anything I could find that was a "great deal," but I have been increasingly more selective.  I plan to use this blog to hold myself accountable and share our newest journey: continuing to shop carefully and frugally with an eye for a healthier and more eco-friendly lifestyle.  Here goes!
