I have become a crazy coupon nerd!!!

I am now obsessed with couponing.  I know I know dorky, but let me just say I am absolutely amazed at how much money you can save doing this.  One of my husbands coworkers has gotten me hooked and now I am telling anyone that will give me two seconds to open my mouth.  I joined a few websites that really do help streamline the process and I am getting my technique down. Here is what I have joined/began following.

There are two different ways you can organize your coupons and I haven't decided what is more efficient for me.  I have only been doing this for 2 weeks.  What I do know is that I have saved a ton of money.  This month alone on shopping I would have spent $429.61 but with my coupons I only spent 137.09 and that includes a trip to Fry's yesterday for groceries for $92. I now have 6 months of cleaning supplies and laundry supplies.  I also began stocking up on all non-perishable food items.  I have so much more that I needed to clear out shelves in my garage and in my kitchen to completely reorganize my pantry and make room for more!

I love Nordstrom Last Chance!

Way back in the day, when I was in high school Dr.Martins were all the rage.  Seriously, I loved them and all of the girls wore them.  They were about $150 full price and that was WAY too expensive for me to pay.  I earned all of my own money to buy clothes by cleaning my house and my cousins house every week.  Enter, the savvy high school shopper.  All of my friends and I started going to Nordstrom Last Chance where we could score our Docs for $30! Now, mind you I do have a passionate and turbulent relationship with my dear Last Chance.  Sometimes I go and scour the store and find NOTHING! UGH! That is the worst.  Last night I went and was reminded why I keep this relationship going! Here are my finds...

Vera Wang Lavender Label for $60, they are in Nordy right this very minute for $275

Nine West "Smarts" which are also in Nordy now for $80, I scored for $18!

And finally, these Toms that I scored for $18!

God I love a good deal!
