We got the following message from one of our readers this week:

I have been following your blog for several months now and have been amazed by the amount of money you save and even make. I told myself I wanted to try it and see how it worked for me. It took me a few months to read your "couponing 101" and understand how it should be done. I finally made my first effort earlier this week when my son needed diapers and I saw on your blog that Walgreens had them on sale. I didn't take a picture that trip but using coupons and store sales I got 2 pkgs of diapers, 2 pkgs of wipes, 2 pkgs (4 ct.) disposable razors, and 2 Sunday papers (I don't get the paper yet :( ) for $31.02 and I got $6 in RR. I didn't quite understand how the RR's worked at the time so it was a little more than expected. After that trip, saving over $12, I got really excited. I made another trip today and although it didn't work out exactly as I planned it out, I think it still went pretty well for my second trip. This visit (picture attached) would have cost me $63.73. I paid $18.76 oop and still have $4 in RR to use later. I'm pretty satisfied with my first experience and think that I am now addicted!! Thanks for your great blog to help others save money also!!

Sincerely,  Brittany

I was so excited about all my free stuff today, too, that I lined it all up and took a picture. It's the first time I've ever done that. I think you ladies are rubbing off on me. Someday I'll look at those photos and see, um, lots of pasta!
