I know I have spoiled myself with NEVER paying full price. I clip those coupons and look for the sales each week. No it does not take my whole day. I work and I have a homestead to take care of Plus two dogs.
My store of choice is Publix and for fresh produce I do not grow yet I go to Aldi`s .
A couple weeks ago Publix had Toaster strudels ( $2.48 each box ) on sale buy one get one free making them $1.24 each and you know that was the same week that a Manufacturer coupon came out for .50 off one came out. My publix doubles coupons so that .50 turned into $1.00 making them .24 each box. BUT when I got there they were sold out! They gave me a rain check and I used it today. I got seven boxes for $1.68 …. thats right, I practically stole them.
Next I had printed the Lindsay olive coupon $4.99 , you know those fancy kind. They are $4.59 so that coupon gave me FREE olives and .40 to spend 🙂
Its Bisquick time! ( $3.83 each )It is on sale buy one get one free $1.91 each this week and I had that printed Manufacturer coupon from coupons . com for .50 that doubled to $1.00 . Under $1.00 ! Bam !
And the Minute rice is not on sale but I get lazy and I can microwave this so I got three packs at $1.99 and used .50 Manufacturer coupon that doubled to $1.00 making each just .99!
Then I blew my cheap deal away when I bought a head of cauliflower for $3.99.
But my total before coupons and sale was $44.96 and all I paid was $9.67 ( no sales tax added ). Now that is how I like to shop and stock with coupons. Next year I will grow my own cauliflower that is for sure.
I have not sat down with the coupons to match up with the deals of the week as of yet. But I know Diet Pepsi is on sale at CVS drug store three for nine dollars and thats the cheapest so far this week.
Do you use coupons? Do you get free foods all the time?
