Empty Pockets Never Held Anyone Back. Only Empty Heads And Empty Hearts Can Do That.



I think I did pretty well today.

I purchased from Kroger and Meijers...are you ready for this...

6 bottles of Pantene (3 shampoo and 3 conditioner)after coupons $11.94 or $1.99 a piece (used 3 $3/2 coupons) NORMAL PRICE: $4.14 a piece

Luvs Mega Pack $9.99 NORMAL PRICE: $11.79

Infinity Pads after coupons $2.19 (loaded $2 coupon from P&G Saver to Kroger Card and coupon for $1) NORMAL PRICE: $5.19

4 Jello Pudding (fridge type) after coupons $5.80 or 1.45 pack (used 4 $0.55 coupons) NORMAL PRICE: $2.64 a piece

I did get another $5.00 off my bill as Kroger had a deal that if you bought 25 dollars in P&G items you got $5.00 off...that happened with the diapers, shampoo, and pads.

Total came to $26.42 with tax.

2 Special K Bars after coupons $4.00 or $2.00 a piece (used $1 off 2 coupon) NORMAL PRICE: $3.09

6 boxes of Kleenex after coupons $5.50 or $0.92 a piece (used two $0.50 coupons which doubled to $1.00...hence $2.00 off) NORMAL PRICE: $1.99 a piece

3 Electrasol Gelpacs after coupons $1.50 or $0.50 a piece (used three $2.50 coupons) NORMAL PRICE: $4.49

3 boxes of Kelloggs Cereal, after coupons $3.00 or $1.00 a piece (used three $1.00 coupons) NORMAL PRICE: $3.14 a piece

3 jars Smuckers Jam, after coupons $1.65 or $.55 a piece (used three $0.35 coupons that doubled to $0.75..hence $2.25 off) NORMAL PRICE: $2.75 a piece.

Came to $16.59 with tax

TOTAL SPENT ON ALL MY STUFF: $43.01

If I had bought all of it at full price it would have been.......DRUUUUMMMMMMMROOLLLLLLLLL........$101.62..not including tax

I SAVED $58.61

Thank God for coupons.

It pays to do your homework...I LOVE MY NEW JOB (now that I lost my old one)..this one makes me feel smart.

A big thanks to Andrea at Mommysnacks.net, without her I would not be able to figure all this out and to the many people who save their Sunday paper inserts for me or coupons...especially my lovely and much loved grandmother!!
Pin It!

Amen to coupons! I have a couple of frugal mom blogs that I follow too. Helps to have some one else do the homework! Stellar work!
