A place for moms to connect

Hello. My husband, or 3 children and I moved here recently from Titusville fl and so far we are loving the area. I was wondering if any of you other Mommies are couponers. Where we lived before some other Moms and I started a couponing class/club and we did so well I learned how to cut my grocery bill down by about 75%! I was just curious if any of you do this and what local stores you find best for couponing . Thanks!

I am a big couponer:) My DH still can't figure out how it's legal:) LOL--
I like the sites southernsaver.com and frugalfloridian.com--they both match coupons with the sales-I shop at Publix for their BOGO sales, Winn dixie depending, Food Lion occassionally--Hitchcocks when they have BOGO and double coupons (isn't often but when they do I stock up)---
I find that I get a lot of stuff at Publix with the BOGO and other store coupons--they are the main store for us. Hitchcocks has the best meat consistently. CVS I get alot of personal items, toothpaste and drugs at with coupons and ECB. I live in a rural area so I depend on my once a week coupons in the newspaper and then online coupons--I routinely save 69-80%--that works really well for us:)
Hi Hope! Welcome to Gainesville! I still haven't jumped on the coupon bus, but I know I need to. I hear about all these awesome deals. I just need to buckle down and do it.
I have just started a blog for local couponers, you can find it at www.gainesvillecouponers.blogspot.com Publix is the best place above all. Michelle at www.iheartpublix.com is really good!!! I am able to pull some of her listings onto my blog to share with others. I am working on listing matchups for Publix, Winn Dixie, Food Lion, and Hitchcocks.
I will be doing some coupon classes as well with another coupon buddy. I will post on the blog when and where these will be.
I average a savings of about 75% off my grocery bill!!!
I started couponing in October or so last year, and I am getting better at it every week. I think my biggest save to date was a few weeks ago at Publix. My total savings was $103, and my total bill was around $64. I love the sites http://theprudentpatron.blogspot.com/, http://www.southernsavers.com/, http://www.southernsavers.com/, and my favorite of all http://hip2save.com/. I get lots of great deals and tips on shopping a Publix and Target...the only stores I really shop at. I also find out what the freebies are each week at CVS and Walgreens. I would love to meet up with other couponers to see how and what you all do, and also how you sort and store your coupons. Thanks!
Meant to put http://www.totallytarget.com/ link in, but listed southernsavers.com twice. Sorry about that!
