Savings Galore!

Sunday evening Scott and I went to Publix armed with our list and a baggie full of coupons. We bought a ton of stuff. Our menu is for two weeks, but with the stuff we already had at home that wasn't included in our menu and the stuff we bought because it was on sale and we know we'll eat it, we probably have enough food in our house to live for at least a month! Scary! I think we need to pause on the shopping for a while. But, we had some good savings. We saved 47% on our trip at Publix! We bought several "big price" items like 3 things of ground turkey breast, 6 things of litter and 4 NY Strip steaks! The cat litter was B1G1 and I had my little $1 off coupon thinking I would buy 1 and get it for $2.50. Well, we start looking at it and there are those little pull off coupons for $2 off on all of them! I was super excited. We got Wheat Thins for $0.63 each, brownie mixes for $0.85 each, bagel-fuls for $1 per box. The cheapest thing we got was our Kraft salad dressing, which was B1G1, which made it $1.50 each and then we had $1.50 coupons (2 of them) so they were free! Between the B1G1 and our coupons (including doubled ones), we saved $97.96.

Scott went to Kroger on Monday to get the things that were on the best sale there (plus their produce always seems to be cheaper) and saved 40% between sales, coupons! We got 6 tubes of Colgate toothpaste for free! It was 10/$10 and we had 2 $1 coupons from previous weeks' papers and were able to print 4 of coupon.com. We also got a thing of Weber Grill Creations seasoning for free. They were 10/$10 and we had a $0.50 coupon, which gets doubled! Yay!

Oh the excitement...

Have I mentioned that I have become a pro at packing food into our fridge and freezer?

Have you found any exceptional deals lately?

I told you that you would get the hang of it after a while. Sounds like both of you have been bitten by the bargain bug. Way to go Scott. I think if I sent Josh to the grocery store with coupons and a list he would die. Anytime we go to the grocery store together and I try to use coupons he hates it, he thinks they take to long. He loves the savings that they bring when I am on my own, but he doesn't like doing it. He says that one week he wants to give it a try. If he does I will definitly blog about that experience.

It sort of gets addicting, doesn't it. Especially when you can get stuff for free...
I LOVE it!
Have fun!
