Holy Hot Dogs!!!

I am hosting a backyard bbq bridal shower next Sunday. I needed hot dogs. I was just going to go to BJs. I ended up getting these dogs at Stop and Shop. Each pack of dogs retails at $4.59, so these would have cost $27.54. With the sale and coupons, I paid $10.77!!! My whole shopping trip tonight without coupons would have been $142.53 but I only spent $73.98, and I got  174 gas points...

Today I actually bought food!!!

So today I went to Rite Aid, CVS, Walgreens, Stop and Shop and Roche Bros.  I had to go actual food shopping... My grand total if I had NOT had coupons would have been $445, but Scarlett is just plain awesome, so I spent ONLY $238!!!! Yes that is $207 in SUPER SAVINGS!!!!!  In terms of actual food, we had 2 1/2 carts of food, which usually for us averages to $100 per cart. I could not possibly take a picture of everything, so I took a picture of a few items that I am going to point out.  All of those items pictured would have cost me $50.00, come on guess what I spent?? $4.50!!!! 

Tylenol Precise Heating pads

Ok This is my ultimate goal, to actually show how this was done. I will try to show at least one scenario every week. As of now I am a Matron of Honor in a wedding and that in itself is extremely time consuming....

So back to the Tylenol. This is a new product. When new products come out, as do high value coupons for that product. They want you to buy it and try it, so they give you a break and alas get you hooked, hahaha. There was a $5 off coupon in Sundays paper for this. Tylenol was on sale at Walgreens for $8. So do the quick math. Tylenol now becomes $3. Sweet if you were going to buy this item. This gets better, the Walgreens flyer also had a store coupon for $3 off. So yes, you math whiz, that makes this FREE!!!!!! In this scenario, you can matchup a manufacturer and store coupon to maximize savings.....

A little adjustment

So I was getting aggravated trying to organize my coupons alphabetically before adding them to my binder. I would be wasting more time looking for the pile that was for "S"... so i just made a tiny adjustment by labeling these cards that I am able to pull out each week. I was able to sort these out alphabetically and then by month they expire and put into binder within just 5 minutes!!!!!
