Well I have to admit that I've gotten hooked on couponing, probably because of the influence of some new friends :) A couple of days a week I'll check sale flyers online, print off coupons and now load coupons onto my Kroger card!!!
Last week I went to Kroger and did a great job with sticking to the sales and using my coupons:) I spent the same amount I saved!!! So cut my grocery bill in half (at least at Kroger).
Last night I tried out my new couponing skills again at Kroger and Food Lion!! I also picked up basic needs at Kroger that were not on-sale because it was late and I didn't want to go to WalMart... so my status weren't the greatest.... At Kroger, I spent a little over $60 and saved (coupons and sales) $40!! pretty good considering I got over 12 pounds of meat and that I'm just learning and stocking up my coupons ;)
So here's my YAY! and my Duh!! for my second week couponing:
YAY! - So we drink soymilk by the gallons.... and I found some GREAT soymilk coupons online a couple of weeks ago. With Kroger's sale and my coupons, I got two half gallons of soymilk for .99 each... a gallon of soymilk for $2.10 including tax!!
Duh!! - One of my main buys at Kroger was their generic cereal... 6 for $10.00 and an extra $4 off if you bought six. So I stocked up and then thought I should buy some granola bars so I put a box back.... then I realized all the granola bars had milk in them so I left the cereal aisle.... I didn't realize until I got home that I only got 5 boxes!!!!! Grrr... like loosing $3!!!
What can I say??? I'm a true couponing newbie!!
