Earlier that morning, I ran my grocery errands. That’s where I hit up the stores to pick up specific produce items on sale at different stores. I grabbed my BOGO strawberries at foodland and brought my own bag to get both containers for $3.26 each. I hit up Longs/CVS to pick up toilet paper (4 - Angel Soft 12 double roll packs) , spam (6 cans) and a bag of chips and paid $38. I then hit up Safeway to pick up asian pears, Oranges, romaine lettuce hearts, and a big bag of fresh baby spinach for $20.00.
I had 20 coupon inserts to clip and file. I get five Sunday papers every week and this past Sunday was a coupon BONANZA! Super score and the P&G’s came in at the perfect time because I need to stock up on my shampoo and conditioners.
Be on the lookout for my future blog boasting my shopping hauls.
Overall, my entire weekend “shopping spree” on fresh fruits and veggies totaled $48.00 (not counting the longs/cvs run). Not bad considering it’ll last us about a week and a half.
After my farmers market run, I had to get ready to teach my coupon class while reading the new ads for the week. We were in desperate need of diapers and low and behold, Target had some hot deals on diapers and other things. Those other things had coupons available AND cartwheel too. So I saved a TON of money this weekend and stocked up on items.
After teaching my 1 hour long coupon class in Ewa Beach and wrapping up a small cash and carry thirty one bag sale, I headed to Target.
Four bulk packed boxes of diapers (156 count each). With every two boxes, Target gives you a $10 GC.
I also picked up SIX large digiorno pizzas. The target sale was buy 2 for $14 and get a free 2 liter soda. The coupon from that Sunday’s paper was Buy two pizzas get a 3rd free. On top of the sales, there were cartwheel savings for both the diapers AND the pizza. And I brought my own bags to get additional bag credits (5 cents each).
So, for the 4 boxes of diapers, 6 large pizzas, and 2 – 2 liter bottles of soda, I paid $105. That comes out to 14 cents per diaper. That’s the cheapest I’ve ever gotten them for! I’ve already stocked up on baby wipes. I bought cases of them for $6 a case. Yes, couponing DOES save a lot of money, when done correctly. If you want to learn how I do it, contact me to attend a class. I’m having one this Saturday at 9 am if you’re free. Share and inform your family and friends! I’d love to teach them!
