After being in Cincinnati last week with a few other frugal bloggers, including Katie from Kroger Krazy, I was so inspired to shop with coupons again — something that I haven’t done much of in the last few years. (Read more about how we save on groceries without using coupons here.)
So, I went over to Kroger Krazy, made my grocery list, printed my coupons, and then promptly lost the coupons! For real.
Maybe this wasn’t such a good idea??? 😉
I ended up finding out that my daughter had put the coupons under a stack of books, so all was not lost! But then when I got to the store, I realized how rusty I was at using coupons. I ended up having to consult Kroger Krazy multiple times on my phone AND I had to return a bottle of laundry detergent to customer service because I had bought the wrong size!!!!
Apparently, using coupons isn’t quite like riding a bike. When you learn how to do it once, you can’t necessarily just hop back on and do it again!
But, as I walked out of the store with my bags in tow and my receipt with all the savings listed, I remembered the rush I got from using coupons and getting deals and now I’m inspired to jump back into it again! 🙂
