This is probably super boring to everyone, but I'm so excited I saved $40.00 when buying these items today by price matching and coupons. We're big fans of TLC's Extreme Couponing and while we didn't get $2,000 worth of groceries for free like they do on the show, we did save a considerable amount and only bought items we will use. It's actually quite fun and addicting! My kids even love clipping coupons. Here's the low down on what I bought:
6 boxes of cereal (using BOGO price match and coupon)= $1 per box instead of $3.38 per box
4 boxes of fruit snacks (BOGO pricing match)= $1.14 per box instead of $2.28
2 corn bread/muffin mixes (BOGO price match)= 21 cents per pack instead of 88 cents
4 muffin mixes (BOGO)= 44 cents per pack instead of 88 cents
2 brownie mixes (BOGO)= 49 cents per pack instead of 97 cents
2 packages Oreo cookies (price match)= $1.50 per pack instead of $3.00
2 Arm & Hammer laundry detergent (price match)= $2.50 per bottle instead of $4.00
2 travel sized Advil (coupon)= I made 32 cents for buying these with a $4.00/2 coupon and they were $1.84
1 travel sized Advil (coupon)= 84 cents instead of $1.84
2 cake mixes (BOGO & coupon) & 2 icing= $2.88 instead of $5.58
And a lot of price matches on fresh produce (not shown)
This is the FREE food my kids got today! Our community started doing a free summer lunch program this week at the church and on Fridays they send them with a grocery sack each full of food.
I would love to hear how you save on your grocery bill!!!
I'm a previous stay-at-home mom of 8 years who joined the working world again as the Food Service Director over our local school district and a high school lunch lady. I have 3 kiddies. Makayla (Miss Picky Pants) is 14, Sophie (Worm) is 13 and Chase's 9. I LOVE to cook! If you're looking for plain ol' mom food... you're in the right place! I'm always looking to cook up new recipes and simple, inexpensive meals. My goal's to share old favorites and to make new ones. Thanks to everyone who stops by and visits my blog! You inspire me to keep posting (even when I have a difficult time managing my time!)
