Worth of product $113.01


Total Spent $89.01

Not as good as my last trip but I got some great buys! The pasta I got for $0.24 a box, so I bought 8 boxes of it! I also stocked up on pizzas because I haven’t seen a lot of coupons for them so when I got 4 I figures I should use them! I also got a great deal on paper towels, they were on sale for $6.99  then Publix had a coupon for $2.00 off and I used a $0.25 from PG making it $0.79 a roll! But not a great trip but I was able to stock up on products that we use often A LOT! So not a great trip but not a bad one either. Oh and Publix is running a special right now if you spend $100 you get $10 in gift certificates.

Total Saved to date: $43.46

I am thankful for the ability to coupon! I have really been able to save some money by shopping strategically and with coupons. For example this last week I was able to save $50 on our groceries. I am still learning but I am slowly getting better!

Ok so I have been playing around with coupons for a while. If I had a coupon for something I was buying then I would use it. But I really haven’t seen that much savings. After read several different books like Pick Another Checkout Lane, Honey: Save Big Money & Make the Grocery Aisle your Catwalk!
and The Coupon Mom’s Guide to Cutting Your Grocery Bills in Half: The Strategic Shopping Method Proven to Slash Food and Drugstore Costs and have compared the different styles. I have taken a little bit of advice from both and have figured out what is going to work for me. I have also looked at MANY different websites to get little tips from other people trying to do the same thing. So I have my Coupon Binder, Sales Flyers, and my lists! Hopefully a little bit of extra time in to planning my shopping trips each week will save my family a little bit of money! So we will see how it goes! Wish me luck!
