The week before vacation I didn’t want to stock up on stuff that we wouldn’t get to while we were gone…during vacay I had packed a lot of stuff to take with us for breakfast/lunches and we were treated to dinner every night. We are home and, after cleaning out the fridge – it looked a bit empty!
What a perfect time to get back in the saddle – and routine of pouring over the sales specials, matching up with coupons and making a list! It doesn’t hurt that tomorrow is DOUBLE double coupon day – so they will double TEN $1 or less coupons with a $25 purchase…since they work on original shelf price, I am ready to SCORE tomorrow!
Here is an example of one of my four (yes, four) transactions for tomorrow: Lawrey’s marinades are on sale for $2.39 (from 3.49). I will get ten of them for a total of $23.90 – THEN, I will hand over ten coupons for $1 off, that will be doubled and my total comes down to 3.90 – add a $3.50 Walgreen’s register reward that I have to use up and I will get all ten bottles for $.40 ! oops – make that $.35 because I will get a nickle back for bringing my own bag, LOL! A variety of flavors to enhance future chicken dishes – yum! (Thanks Brenda for the coupons!) That makes a savings of 99% – ya gotta love that!!!
One transaction will be using the Kellogg’s deal where I will get $10 back at the end of the transaction so I will end up getting paid $5 to bring home 10 boxes of cereal…one will be all about the Conagra items on sale which gives me a $5 cash back AND a mail in rebate offer! Yes…I really enjoy making my plan of attack!
I will share my list of spoils tomorrow and the final result…if the juice I have coupons for goes on sale – that could add 2 more transactions and 20 bottles of juice to my house, LOL!
Some people say coupon clipping doesn’t pay…those people have never tried it, LOL!
