I have run into a few people lately who are really good at couponing. While I do use coupons here and there, I have not pursued couponing as part of my homemaking career, however my interest in this art continues to soar as of late.
Interestingly enough, a email digest for large families that I receive also recently brought up the subject of coupons and groceries. Several suggestions and recommendations for a unique website called The Grocery Game were given.
Reading testimonials of extreme grocery bill savings ignited my interest to the point that I became convinced that I too could save lots of money using coupons.
Here are some examples:
“I am saving between $90-$120 each week AND stockpiling!”
“I have been doing the Grocery Game for 24 weeks and save an average of 50% monthly. I save an average of $100 per week to feed a family of 5 including diapering a baby.”
Other moms said that it was not uncommon for them to get their paper products and toiletries for free using coupons. One mom said that she never pays for toothbrushes or toothpaste or deodorant or shampoo because she is able to get these items for free using coupons with sales.
The goal of the Grocery Game website is to enable a family of 4 to save $1,000 on their groceries in 12 weeks using coupons. I wonder how that would translate with a family of 9? So what exactly is this grocery game anyway??

To read about the entire system and how it works, you need to read the ‘What is the Grocery Game’ section on the website.
Before I dive into using the Grocery Game system, I intend on growing my coupon file over the next few weeks. This week I asked my neighbor for her Sunday paper coupon inserts if she was not using them and received two sets of coupon inserts.
I will keep you posted on future outrageous coupon saving grocery store trips as I delve into the new art of extreme couponing.
