Our first stop was at Wal-Mart. They had Silk Coconut and Almond milk for the cheapest price and I had a coupon for $1 off. So I got 2 Coconut milks and 2 Almond milks. So Bubby and I have milk for a while. The best part about those kinds of milks is that as long as you don't open it they stay good for a long time. Once you open it you have 7-10 days to drink it or it will spoil. These bottles don't expire until the end of May! So I am pretty pumped. :)
We then popped over to Fareway, a local grocery chain. They had Fuze on sale for 88 cents. I had a coupon for $1 off/2 drinks. So that made each bottle of Fuze around $0.38! YAY! I also picked up some Rhodes dinner rolls and cinnamon rolls. After my coupon they were around 1.99 each.
Our third stop was to Hy-Vee, another local grocery chain. I ended up getting 12 boxes of cereal, 2 gallons of milk and 4 Keebler pie crusts for only $27.52! YEAH! I am still shocked to see that I got that much cereal!
The fourth and final stop was at Walgreen's. I purchased 24 Snickers eggs and 8 boxes of Hefty One Zip baggies (4 quart size and 4 gallon size) for...wait for it...only $11.60!!!!
I figured out that I could have spent $120.20 on my purchases today...but I only spent $66.04! YAY!!!!!
I am so excited that I finally started couponing. I can't wait to really get this figured out so that I can keep saving this way. I had NO idea that I could do this and be THIS successful. I was hoping for maybe 25% savings. But being this close to 50% savings gives me hope that if I am diligent with my coupons and matching up with the sales that I can be a successful couponer. :)
