That article sure puts spending in a different light for me. I worry about my 5.03% return in my savings accounts and the 1% back on my credit card use, but to think of getting a 20% to 50% all the time. I an avid coupon user and I shop all the sales but it makes me feel like I am doing so much better for my family now. Thank you.

That's exactly the way I read it too. I had considered putting more money into a 5% interest bearing savings account. And, of course that would lock up more of the money my family needs to live on. At this point, that's just not an option for us. But, after reading this, I realized that I would get so much better return from stocking up.

That's a great article. Once we get all the expenses taken care of that come with buying a house, we fully intend to use coupons, and take out cash to equal the coupons to put in savings. That way as far as our budget goes, it is like we just went ahead and paid full price for them, but in reality, we are still able to have some money go into our savings. We did it for a while before we started tying up all of our money in this house, and it really gives you a good idea of how much money you are saving on everyday items anyway. When you realize that you saved over $150 one month in coupons, it's a great eye opener. :)
