Very good. By your list, looks like you are getting the hang of it.
I prefer multiple XBs rather than 1 large XB, it is easier to roll over.
Doesn’t it feel like you’re buying things with Monopoly money?
After the cash register processes the Qs, then I ask for the subtotal, then I hand over the XBs I want to use.
Good Luck


You did it!!! Great job!!!


You rocked it!!!


Great job! When I started I felt “intimidated” by the “scholars” as you call them but realized any sort of savings is good. Do what works best for you and your family. I felt I had to chase every deal I saw posted but soon realized I needed to do what worked best for me. Great job!


That is how I am now! I feel the need to chase every deal, as you said. It is kind off addicting though LOL!
Thank you for the kind words!
