Wow, I think I may have missed my calling as a movie star. Actually, I’m just kidding. I don’t think I could be more awkward on camera if I tried. To me the best part about having kids is always getting to be behind the camera and not in front of it. Nonetheless, for some crazy reason I decided it would be fun to tape my shopping trip today, just so you can see what a coupon shopping adventure with me looks like. Princess was at school but Trouble got to join the fun. (And a big thanks to K. for tagging along and holding the camera!)

So after all that, here is what I got:

At Publix I spent $44.14 on $142.57 worth of groceries, a savings of 69%. I got a lot of free things today, but I also splurged on a few things that weren’t on sale or that I didn’t have coupons for.
