    After reading this board I am inspired to become a couponer! I did some CVSing a couple of months back but then after a couple of dry weeks gave up. But I am back and learning so much!!!!! My best buy this week was at ShopRite where I got:

    2 Ronzoni Pasta Boxes
    2 Jars Pasta Sauce
    Raisin Bran
    Minute Maid OJ
    Friendly's Ice Cream
    Arm & Hammer Laundry Detergent
    2 Boxes Green Giant Broccoli
    For a total of $8.11 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I was so excited :) I also got some CVS deals, but I think I did it in the wrong order (live and learn!)

    My question is - what are your favorite couponing/money saving websites?

    I've been reading tons of them but would like to narrow it down to a few really good ones because I'm somewhat overwhelmed. Thanks:goodvibes

    Wow - great job! I, too, am just starting - but I haven't had nearly the success you have! I did save 50% on my last trip to the grocery store. I was so happy (and so was DH)! My best buy was 5 packs of hot dogs for the price of 2. I actually plan on getting my baseball card holders today so I can organize my coupons. The stack on my desk is getting too big!

    Anyways, I like iheartpublix and totallytarget. I also am a member of couponmom - but with the publix and target websites, I really don't use that site much. It does have a cool coupon database, though. Good luck!

    I too am trying to get started with serious couponing. I have read several references to doing things in a certain order at CVS; can you (or someone) explain how that goes?

    I've been trying to become a smarter grocery shopper, too. I know that the magic of couponing comes when you can match the coupons to the sales, but I was having trouble figuring out how to do that. I don't know if there has ever been any discussion of thegrocerygame on these boards, but I recently signed up for the free trial, and it is so much fun! I have had some really fun shopping trips and I seem to be spending a lot less. I'm not sure if I'll continue to use it - I'll be looking for a free alternative until I need to decide.

    I just started couponing too. I can't believe what I paid for this stuff before :eek:

    Last week I got a free bottle of Pantene shampoo by matching a coupon to a sale. I've been shopping Rite Aid and the one near us is closing down. So I'll be switching to CVS. Need to learn about their rewards.

    It seems easier for me to get beauty & health items at a great deal than grocery items. I guess we are brand loyal and a family of picky eaters :rolleyes1

    One of the good sites is hotcouponworld.com.
