I figured since my little guy went down for a nap I would get this post up about our shopping trip this morning. Normally I do my shopping on Sundays on my hubs day off but figured I would venture out and get some time out of the house for once! 😉 Mostly all sales start on Sundays in my area but Shaws starts on Friday. I spent some time this past week cutting coupons from this past weekends paper. There were 5 inserts this time so we got 6 papers. Not sure when I will ever see 5 inserts in a paper again so I stocked up. Not to mention all the ink I went through printing various coupons online. If your new to couponing or not sure where to start there are few good online websites that are FREE that you can print from. Usually it is 2 prints per product. Of course if you have 2 computers or more you can print more. 😉
Places to print online coupons that I use and work!
Another few places that you can print online coupons that are actually worth more than the other coupons are from Kellogs, Betty Crocker, and Pillsbury. You can also get coupons from companies themselves by emailing them. Also don’t forget to buy your weekly newspaper to not only get the weekly sales flyers but also coupon inserts. The only store in my area that I BELIEVE double coupons is Shaws. They will double 4 like coupons up to .99! Pretty cool if you match your coupons up just right with the weekly ad. I’m pretty happy about my trip today. I went to Shaws, the Dollar Tree and the Bread store. Shaws alone I had a savings of 65%.
This week their Cascadian cereal was supposed to be $2 a box but the sign was $3 a box. I spent a lot of time trying to find it and finally had to ask someone where was it, apparently the ad was not right but they told me that they would honor the $2 sale price. I was glad about that because that was one of the items I was most excited about since after coupons that double I got some at .30 a box! The others were .50 and 1.00 a box. Another product I was excited about was the PowerAde that was on sale for 10/$10 there is a coupon on PowerAdes website for .50/1 meaning when it doubles you get it for FREE! =) Besides deposit of course. 😉
While I was at Shaws I decided to check on the razors since some were 50% last week. I actually found the Bic Soleil razors at 50% so I used my BOGO coupon from this past weekends inserts and got 2 packs for 3.19. Today was extra fun because with some of my coupons and sales a few of my items were absolutely free. I got so much today it’s hard to explain it all. I got 9 loafs of bread at the bread store at a buck a loaf so that was pretty awesome.
All groceries from the 3 different stores total $250.67. After coupons and sales my Out of Pocket total was $97.25! Savings of $153.42! =D Also I had activated some SavingStar coupons at www.savingstar.com and will be getting money back from buying certain items from today at Shaws. You can add your Walgreens, Rite-Aid and Shaws card to it. If you haven’t checked it out yet, you should. =)
Until next time my couponing friends. xoxo
