Before I share my shopping successes this week please accept my invitation to not be impressed.
I am truly enjoying the challenge of saving money on groceries. It's SO exciting to walk out the door with literally a cart full of FREE groceries. I am building a stockpile so my shopping excursions do not look anything at all like they used to look.
For some people this just seems like too much work, too much trouble and too long to see the benefits in the pocketbook. That's fine, don't be impressed. I reserve the right to think you probably aren't interested or haven't taken the time to really understand the goal of lower my grocery bill across the long term, and by a goal of 70%.
Still not impressed? That works out to a savings of $5,040.00 per year.
Still not impressed? Would $93,397.00 be impressive? Invest $5040 in a Roth IRA at a 10% rate of return for 10 years - it's over $93,000. Have I done that? not yet.
