Okay, so I am very new to this coupon shopping thing, but am now totally hooked. Today was my first day to go all out with it. I spent almost 2 hours cutting and sorting the coupons from this past Sunday's paper (it was full of great stuff), and last night looked through all the ads to compare sales and coupons I had that matched them. After a very full and tiring day at MDO I was close to pulling out of my shopping trip, but made myself go do it, even with Selah (which is advised against doing, no children allowed!). I was ready with my binder full of coupons, ads, and $20 cash! And guess what... I came home with change from that $20!
Here's the run down of it all- KROGER: 3 for $8 General Mills cereals plus a free gallon of milk + 3 $1 off Q= $5 10/10 on Duncan Hines cake mix + $.35 Q tripled= $.10 overage (I got 2 boxes) 3 for $5 Pillsbury items + Q doubled = 6 items for total of 2.51 Kroger Totals- Spent $10.11 Saved $17.82!!!!!!
WALGREENS: Schick Xtreme razors sale $4.99 + B1G1 FREE Q + $3 Q = 2 4-packs for under $1. Vanity Fair 100-pack napkins (had a rain check from last weeks B1G1 FREE) + 2 $.50 Q= under $1 each Walgreens Totals- Spent $2.14 Saved $15.99!!!!!!!
WOW***** Basically, I should've spent almost $50 today, but only spent $12.25!!!!
I am not even a professional like the Queen of Sassy Savings (QSS) yet, but I think I did pretty good for my first trip and am so pumped for the next one! I am def. still learning the process, it took 15 minutes almost to check out at Walgreens...LOL!
I love how God brings people in your life at just the right time to teach you how to be a better you! i don't think I would've received this any sooner than now, Thanks Shanna!
I'll keep you posted on any other great trips i have, I am so excited!
