This was an ok week for couponing. I went to to a total of 6 stores since Saturday and spent a total of $66.67. Three of those stores were not with coupons. One was Aldi where I stocked up on good priced produce, one was Walmart to get the few things I couldn’t get while couponing and the other was Dunkin’ Donuts because Charlie needed more coffee. (Of course I remembered afterwards that I had a coupon for DD at home.) Less than $70 for a family of 5 for over a week’s worth of groceries isn’t too bad, though! I’ll share my couponing deals here:
I was not very happy with the way Target does their addition on their receipts, plus the cashier left a $1 coupon off.
Shelf Cost $9.01
Store Discount $0
Total Savings $7.02 or 77.91%!
I was able to use my extra care bucks from 2 weeks ago to get my water cases for .88 each. We plan on selling the bottles of water at our garage sale in a month or so. NICE profit margin 🙂
Shelf Cost $39.58
Store Discount $0
Total Savings $28.84 or 72.87%! (I also got $6.50 back in ECB)
I had a few more free coupons to blow through like: more soup, free Pullups and free Philly cream cheese. Also, don’t forget that today is the last day to enter for my Dominick’s Simple Nutrition Giveaway where you can win a $25 gift card.
Shelf Cost $54.88
Store Discount $8.44
Total Savings $32.60 or 59.4%! (I actually paid with a gift card, so it was FREE except for .65 out of pocket!!)
I would have made it out slightly cheaper if someone hadn’t bought all the Brownie mixes (which I actually really needed.) I had to improvise and add in the powerades to make up my 10 items to get $5 off. The lady left off a .50 coupon, too. GRRR!
Shelf Cost $38.88
Store Discount $18.74
Total Savings $22.24 or 57.2%!
