My sister is now a savings addict! I work for my sister and we see each other all day long. She has started listening to my brags and has started clipping coupons. Today she went to CVS twice and called me after the second one. She was all excited saying "I spent $12 and got $15 back in ECB's" It is so awesome. Now I can talk deals with her all the time. YAY!

Good for her and you! It's nice to have someone to talk to about it IRL who doesn't think you're crazy for doing it.

I love having someone in IRL to talk deals with. My sis and I poured over the CVS ad this week running scenerios. Now I just have to get her to go grocery shopping with me. Her grocery bill right now is probably ove $800 a month for her family of 5. Maybe more. She is getting sick of spending that much at the store. And since we have been working at the same store, I show her my receipts, now she is hooked on trying it.

I love talking to my mom about it, but it's not the same. I just brag. I want someone to SHOP with!

And holy CRAP! $800 a month?! That's just crazy... I barely spend that in months and months and months... lol

necessity.

mother of invention.
