Cami's first BIG COUPON experience!

Ok, First of all, I wrote down every single item that I either SHORTCUT or CELLFIRE. Then I made sure that I had a MFR coup to go along with it and of course to make sure it was on sale...I went to Grocerysmarts.com. The website was totally helpful, just to get my mind straightened out because it was kinda frazzled and overwhelmed with all of the different products and different stores.

My best DEALS were from..... drum roll please...

SAFEWAY

4 Boxes Fruit Roll-ups .25 ea = $1
6 64 oz. Motts Apple Juice .99 ea = $594
2 5-lb bags of Red Potatoes .99 ea = $1.98
1 box NV Granola Bars .10
2 NV Nut Clusters .50 ea = $1
1 BC Cookie Mix 1.19
1 BC Frosting .89
1 BC Cake Mix .74
1 BC Potatoes .79
7 Kellogg's Cereal .50 ea = $3.50
1 Kellogg's Clever Kid Fruit Snack-- FREE coup from HERE
Barilla Pasta F - R - E - E
2 Lunchables F - R - E - E coup from HERE
4 Salad Bags .99 = $3.96
1 Maries Dressing F - R - E - E coup from HERE

Whaaaaa- HOO! Pretty good for a rookie eh? Well, I am not done yet, and it's not as great as this one. (Please note that I had to go back into Safeway 3 times just to get my 6 Apple Juice because of the 2 limit.)

1 BC Potatoes 1.78
3 Chex Mix .66 ea = $2
2 Dawn 1.49 ea = $2.98
1 Yoplait 32 oz. Yogurt 1.45 (I forgot to give my additional coup on top of SHORTCUTS)

Total w/tax $18.41

Total Savings w/Sales $28.39

WALGREENS

4 Starburst Jelly Beans 1.00 ea = $4
1 Small Dawn .74
3 Glade Spray .99 ea = $2.97

Grand Total $46.49

Ok, so when you look at the savings it looks like I did really good. I think there are still some things that I need to work on, but for the most part, it was totally worth the time organizing everything!
