For those of you who do not know me I am an extreme coupon using woman that will get everything , if possible, cheaper or free.
Since I have a nice stockpile I have cut the amount of shopping down from 100% to only, hmm, I would say 25% or less some weeks. And I made a resolution to use up this stockpile and not buy anything that I already have a stock of, no matter the price. Well okay if its free I will get it, but I have cut the amount of coupon clipping down also, so no coupons equals no shopping.
I was out of coffee! All I had left was hazelnut and that is not a flavor I like to wake up to so I did my research and my favorite coupon shopping store had coffee buy one get one free and no less than my favorite! Gevalia. I did not have coupons for this brand but I was lucky and a couple of friends send me two and that was all I needed. The price was $8.39 making each $4.20/ $4.19 and I used a $1.50 manufacture coupon for each, I got both for $5.39. And they had Tombstone Pizza buy one get one free at $5.27 and I had one $1.00 off two manufacture coupon that I printed making both just $4.27.
So my total was before sale and coupons $28.67
But I paid $9.66
Plus tax 1.37
equals = $11.03
I cant believe I bought pizza! I have been so good with eating fresh foods and no junk food. I guess my body needed it 🙂
All that I bought from Aldi`s this week was apples, oranges, bananas and strawberries and I did not spend much cause that store is awesome for its weekly sale, tomorrow starts a new sales week and I will try to get one of those ads and share the savings so you`ll know if you need to shop before you drive all the way to the grocery store 🙂
