I have a confession...

I am obsessed with coupons.

I have been on and off since I was married in my early 20's and HAD to clip them in order to afford groceries.

And lately, the rising price of groceries has prompted a relapse ($4 for a gallon of milk - WTF??!). Every Sunday morning these days you can find me curled up on the couch with my coffee, puppies, scissors, and the giant Sunday edition of the AJC (Atlanta Journal-Constitution) clipping, sorting, and merging them into my already massive collection of papyrus treasures.

You can imagine my delight when earlier this week I found a site called The Coupon Clippers. Here you can search through their collection of coupons and for pennies of the face value, you can order as many coupons as you like for only products you use on a regular basis. My first order arrived today - an envelope stuffed full of coupons for Progresso Soup, Fiber Plus Silk, Morningstar Farms, Laughing Cow Wedges, and Birds Eye Steamfresh veggie packs. I paid a mere $8 for all of these coupons that will amount to at least $40 in savings. And the best part is that it's all products I normally buy anyway!!!!

Now if I could just find a solution for how freakin' long it takes the cashiers to ring the damn things up...
