Coupon Test Run

So after my last post about vegan couponing, I delved into the world of the extreme coupon-er. Two words. Mad respect!
The show really makes it look a LOT easier than it is. I spent about an hour looking online for manufacturer coupons and printing off the ones I planned to use. Made my shopping list. Got to the store. Turns out, the products I had coupons for were no where to be seen! It seems I need to work it the other way around. Go TO the store. Make shopping list. Print coupons, then return to store.
I saved a grand total of $4.75 today. On a total bill of 79.46. A measly 5.9% savings. Or a Starbucks soy latte.

Things I learned:
Look first, then print.
Don't shop before breakfast, you buy more.
Go on smaller, coupon specific shopping trips (less impulse desire)
