We hope you will join us! Set a goal today and get on the path to taking control of your grocery budget!

Here is how some of the fabs are doing…

 

Monica: Feeding a family of 4

Busy week. I did not get to the store at all. I did however get my bacon and ham delivery from zaycon! I used my referral credit to pay for it so it was free!

 

Becky: Feeding a family of 3

Monthly grocery budget: $200

Spending this week: $80.47
Savings this week: $248.97

Spending for November: $84.20
Savings for November:  $284.53

Year to date spending: $2073.83
Year to date savings: $4106.90

I bought a Bountiful Basket this week, and got the hostess pack, and that was $31.50.  I priced it at Walmart, and I saved right at $60 between both the Basket and the Hostess pack!

AND YIPPEE!!  I have passed the $4000 saved mark!  That to me and my family is HUGE!  We were able to take a vacation this year, and everything was paid for in CASH.  Plus we are going out and having more fun than we ever did before we started couponing because we have MORE money, even though our income is less!   You can do this too!!
