Used Lots of Coupons Today

Friday, August 31, 2012

Today I went grocery shopping and did a pretty good job as I used 17 at one store and 21 at the other. I even had a $5 coupon off $25 worth of meat and all the meat I bought had additional store stickers on them (the least amount was $2.50 off).

As much as meat is now I was thrilled to save so much on the meat I purchased. Both stores were double coupon stores, so the majority of my coupons were doubled.

Both stores also give you fuel (gas perks) rewards so eventually I will save money at the gas pump as well. I filled my new van up the other day because it was almost on empty and saved around $7.50 after using my Bi-Lo gas perk rewards, so was excited about that!

It almost never fails that someone makes a comment to me about my couponing when I'm shopping and today was the same. A lady and her husband commented about it and the husband said his wife cut coupons out but left them at home, LOL. I find that I can't feel comfortable unless I have my coupon box with me because I save so much using them. I hate full price on anything and groceries is at the top of that list.

    Yes, I typically use coupons and have for decades, but it's been hard to focus on savings lately due to a drama-filled situation in my life that has thankfully passed by.
