I haven't always couponed. I only started in the fall of 2007. But there are a few things that I've always done to keep the grocery budget down. It's been a necessity for me since the first 2 years of marriage involved finishing up college, having a baby, moving twice, becoming a stay-at-home mom while Dave started work in education. It's a great profession but being a teacher or working for a school district does not involve your family rolling in the money.

I look at the calendar and BAM, I already know what I'm making that day. Also, with the recipes and a shopping list including ONLY the items that you need to make those meals, you are becoming an efficient shopper! Sticking to your list and not …
