Welcome to cool couponing :)

This is my newest idea I've had. I've become quite obsessed with using coupons and saving money lately, and I've been wanting to share the wealth! There are TONS and TONS of couponing blogs out there, but I've been finding that most of these are aimed towards stay at home moms and families, those who have TONS of time to spend on saving money. As a 26 year old with no children (yet, except my 2 bratty dogs), a fiance, and a full time job, I don't have THAT much time to spend on saving money, and I don't need to stock up as much as a huge family would. So I came up with this idea!!

I usually shop at Kroger and Meijer in the Lansing area, plus I get most of my produce from Horrocks (this is an obsession in itself...I discovered this place when we moved to Lansing and I LOVE cheap and such great quality!) I'll be posting deals about these stores mostly. I know drugstores (CVS, Walgreens, and RiteAid) offer awesome deals, and most of the coupon people I follow end up MAKING money there, but it's so time consuming, and I haven't quite gotten into it yet.

I'll also try to post some delicious and super easy recipes too. Obviously cooking is another obsession of mine, and I love to share all the yummy things I make too!!

Let me know what you think of this idea! Do you like saving money? Where do you do most of your grocery shopping? Would you spend a few minutes printing coupons and making a list if it meant you could get $95 worth of food for $33? (I totally did this yesterday!!!) Is there anything else you guys would like to see? Let me know!!!
