Feed a family of 6 for $10/week?

During a recent shopping trip, Spencer bought $279 in groceries for 39 cents.

Spencer has a following of almost 4,000 on Yahoo and thousands more on the Big Tent Web site.

"We've had members go from spending $300 a week on food down to $40 in a matter of weeks," she said.

Spencer spends about one hour a week collecting online coupons and scanning circulars and then four hours a week in grocery stores.

It's a lot of planning, but Spencer said it certainly pays off.
