Yesterday during my Albertsons trip I saved 200 dollars. I wanted to go on a shopping spree afterwards but I didn’t. Today I went to target and had to get diapers and formula so I spent more than that but it was much easier to swallow the target expenses. Now, everyone wants to know HOW I did it. Here is how I saved.
I participated in one buy ten for 20 if you buy ten save an additional 5 so 10 for 15 then
I printed off ten one dollar coupons so 10 Quaker products for 5 dollars. I think one box not on sale is over 4 dollars so this is about a 45 dollar saving.
I participated in three four for 10 and save three if you buy four meaning 4 for 7 and I had a coupon for every product.
I participated in 10 for 10 and save 3 dollars making every product 70 cents. I this is where the 30 cent or very small coupons come in handy. I had a coupon for every product.
I participated in one 3 for 10 and save 3 and had a coupon for every product.
I also bought things we needed, creamer, milk, gravy, tomato sauce, eggs. I had a coupon for the eggs (very rare to find these it was in the newspaper) I had coupons for creamer from the manufacturers website and a free coupon for the milk (for giving the company a compliment.)
Many people want to know how to save on produce or meat. I buy my produce at Costco. I freeze lots of stuff. If I can’t find a coupon for it, I usually get it at Costco because I have found that it is half price at Costco. Meat is usually 2 dollars a lb cheaper.
I was going to upload my entire grocery list but using Blogger i just couldn’t figure out how to make a table.
My savings were mostly buy getting things on sale and then I had 50 dollars worth of coupons. It took me three hours to gather all of my coupons from all of the manufacturers sites and clip from my newspaper coupons, but if you consider my savings that’s 65 dollars an hour. Not a bad pay. The cashier was even nice enough to tell me that they take competitors coupons. Oh, how I’m going to look for even more coupons. 🙂
