Coupons cut and sale papers ready to go.
"Little D" is ready to go deal shopping with all of those coupons!
Here he is reaching up to me on a day when I have a terrible back ache but how can you resist this?
Who would ever have thought that my daughters would be teaching me how to shop with coupons? I used to be the coupon queen when my kids were small but it is different now. So here we go to Rite Aid.
This is what I came out with after May May showed me how to get something for almost nothing. Check out that Ace cold compress. We got that for $.29 and I needed it for my back.
Here is my final receipt. I paid out of pocket 11.64. When we went home we went straight to the computer and will receive 9.99 in Single rebate checks and on top of that I received $3 in up rewards to use towards my next purchase there. So actually you can say that this is a money maker.
Then May May said, Watch this. So I did. This is a huge jar of honey almond body butter!
She had a 6.00 coupon on this and only paid 41 cents! I have bought this from another company before and paid over 20.00 for it....never again.
So I asked May May, "Would you have purchased this anyway without the coupon?" She said no. But what a nice little gift for someone at Christmas! Are my girls smart or what?
I actually went back and did this myself. Amazing.
May May also did this transaction. And she said she needed toothbrushes.
She had a coupon for Buy one, get one free and paid a total of $2.41 with tax. In return she recieved $3.00 in up rewards for her next purchase on something. Another money maker.
Here is the first deal that May May ever showed me. It was from Krogers.
She had a coupon for 3.00 and they had this Buy One Get One free!
33 cents???? Wow.
So here I am at Krogers on my own with coupons in hand.
This is what I came out with. I normally spend 100.00-150.00 and my buggy looks about the same.
Look at all of this stuff I bought!
I saved over 42.00 in coupons (scanned and manufactuer coupons). This is the second week that I have spent less than 50.00 on groceries. I am sold on this coupon thing! Don't get me wrong. It does take time and is a job but it is worth it!
This is my grocery stash after only 2 weeks doing this coupon thing. My stash is extras. It does not count what is in my freezer, refrig, and pantry. I have 8 packages of cheddar cheese in my freezer. I have my cabinets & freezer full. These are things that I would have never had extra. Look at all that detergent at the top. O.K. "Big Sis"......we are waiting on your deals! I will keep showing you my grocery stash as it grows! I am so excited because tomorrow the Sunday paper comes out with all of those coupons!
