I had a lot of coupons that were getting ready to expire. Some good ones. Netting me a lot of free items.
Knowing that stores were closing early for the holiday, I hurried in. At Albertsons I got:
8 cans of Ro*Tel ( we use these a TON)
8 cans of Manwich (my sons favorite!)
8 cans diced tomatoes
6 boxes of hot chocolate
4 boxes of cereal (2 Cookie Crisp and 2 Trix)
2 pouches of Bumblebee tuna
Before card and coupons, my total was $94.xx. Afterward it was $23.xx I also got a coupon back for a free gallon of milk and a coupon for a free bag of chips. Not bad right? 72% savings and I was a happy lady.
Then I went to Vons. I knew I wasn't going to do as well because I had bigger ticket items that I wanted/needed. I got
2-12 packs of tp
2 pkgs of Pampers
2 tubs of Pampers wipes
3 Family sized entrees
6 Pillsbury biscuits
2 Pillsbury french bread loaves
2 Pillsbury pizza crusts
4 jars of Prego sauce
1 pkg of brown sugar
1 pkg of marshmallows
1 pkg of choc. chips
3 pkgs of string cheese
2 -2 liters of Sierra Mist
4 12 pks of pop
1 bag of Doritos
8 cans of soup
4 Yakisoba noodles
2 boxes of crackers
Before coupons my total was $297 and after it was $127. This was a mere savings of 42%. I wasn't as excited...
But you know what, I got a lot for that $127! Mason's diaper stockpile was almost non existent and toilet paper is always a good thing to have around here. I think I look at Coupon Queens on tv/magazines/blogs etc and compare myself to them & their scores. I am not going to do that anymore though!! I am proud of my score and I KNOW it will all get eaten (:
