About Me

I'm a Utah mom, just trying to make ends meet. Several years ago, I was introduced to a new way of couponing. I've been addicted ever since. I have a hard time paying full price for anything anymore.

I love couponing so much, I decided to become a teacher for Grocery Smarts.

I teach free classes and show you how to get everything you need at the grocery store and still leave $$$ in your pocket. I'll also teach you the best ways to get and organize your coupons. The best part of the class is when I show you how to match your current coupons up with the current local sales - getting the most bang for your buck!

Point of Reference

I often get questions on what's considered a good buy. One way to tell is by checking out the shopping list for the week at your favorite store on Grocery Smarts website. Anything that is a 5 star item is definatley something you want to stock up on (assuming it's something you'll use). A 4 star item is still pretty good and a 3 star item is an okay deal. I would not encourage you to buy anything that is a 2 or 1 star item (they rarely make the list anyway).

I also came across another list on Google that is a reference list. I'm not sure who the original publisher of the list was, but as far as I can tell these prices are pretty consistent with what I've been seeing.


5 star - stock up
4 star - still a pretty good deal (stock up with a few if you absolutely need it)
3 star - average price
