    Don't kick yourself about not starting sooner, flashyswife. Most of us feel the same way. I have been at this for 11 years now, but I wish I had known about couponing and meal planning when I was in college. I would have saved sooooo much money and incurred so much less debt (which is thankfully paid off now because of frugal living!). Enjoy your savings from now on and have fun!

    Thank you Faye....I appreciate the help. I wish I started this sooner!

    Thanks, splucker! The Kroger ad is next on my to-do list.

    flashyswife - welcome to couponing! MQ stands for manufacturer's coupon (don't know why it isn't MC - but I have usually seen it as MQ when abbreviated. For a long list of abbreviations, go to the front page of this blog and click on the box for Couponing Abbreviations. Here is the link to the main page of the blog:

    I love this site.
