I am VERY excited about this post!As you know, I recently started collecting coupons with a passion:) I used to just clip what we use on a regular basis but now I clip everything because I didn't realize on how much I was missing out. I've told you about the website that I have been faithfully checking out and I really couldn't have done it without the help of www.moneysavingmom.com! THANK YOU!
So, tonight, I went (from 9-9:45 PM) to our nearest King Sooper/Kroger. I am going to do this every week. First, there were NOT 4 little distractions pulling me in every direction. Second, there were NO customers to be annoyed at me, and third, it was SO quiet- I need that once in a while.
I got all these things for $20 (a $110 value) - let me explain-The things on the far right are WIC (milk, cereal, eggs, cheese, juice and peanut butter) $40 for FREE- if you have never checked out if you qualify for WIC- DO IT!!! It is SUCH a money saver! I get this amount EVERY week which is such a blessing- thank you government...
BUT, this is where it is awesome- I got the rest, a $70 value, for $20 after sales and coupons! Can you beleive it? I can't! I am still in shock!!! It is one thing to write it out on paper but another to actually see and feel all that I got for that price!
4 boxes of Wheat thins
2 bags of Chex Mix
3 cans baby food
3 jars of salsa
2 boxes of Fiber One Granola bars
3 boxes of Orville Redenbackers popcorn
2 Propel fitness waters
jar of mayo
Nestle refrigerated cookie dough
Green Giant Steamer Veggie mix
Quaker Instant Oatmeal (my twins are going to be SO excited in the morning- this is their FAV)
26 items for $20- thats less than $1 for these great name brands.
Some of my friends would tell me that I coud do better at King Soopers than shopping at Walmart and I didn't believe them till tonight! I am hooked on deals! This is the greatest high:) Okay, I am signing off and I hope you don't think I'm too weird for my rantings here!
My advice to you- check out websites in your area for coupon deals, freebes,etc. It takes a lot of the TIME out of bargain shopping. Also, check out WIC- it is great. and get around friends who love bargains (I'm talking about you Erika) they will push you to save as well.
One more thing- this morning I got a FREE big cup of Panera coffee and 3 boxes of Puffs tissues with Lotion for $2-not at teh same place!
WHAT A GREAT DAY!!!!
