Here is what I bought:
3# of Cuties
2 2# brown sugar
1 Au Gratin Pkgs.
1 Mac and Cz
1 Bag of Chex mix
1 Yellow Cake Mix
1 Box Fiber bars
Card Savings: $11.79
Coupon Savings: $10.80
My Out of Pocket: $24.82
Over all percentage of savings: 50%
Now - $10.00 of that was butter that I didnt have a coupon for, but was on sale and cheaper than anywhere else and so I bought and put in the freezer. If you remove that $10.00 from my total would be around $14.00 - it would have reduced my tax and would have reduced the Card Savings to $7.29 which would have made my over all percentage would have been 77% (If my math is right ;)
Hows that? I am pretty pleased....
Where I am putting the items:
Food Storage: Sugar, Mac n Cz, Au Gratin, Cake Mix, Fiber Bars and Butter to the Freezer.
The other stuff is to be eaten now.
I will be going back on Monday with my mom and I will have my new Sunday coupons, so we will see if I can do better.
This was fun and I can see how it can become "addictive" in that I will try to beat my last "score" or if I see it as a Me vs. The Store kind of thing....
Now - get out there and clip those coupons....
Pray, Praise and Prepare on the CHEAP!!
