Today I went to publix and using the coupon magic from this website was able to spend $45 and "save" $40. Which is not to say I only spent $5. I spent $45 on $85 worth of products that I usually wouldn't buy, but that is still tasty and my family will enjoy. It's funny how much we get caught up in the "saved" number.
I know 2 mega coupon queens. I don't know what they do when they run out of rice, or flour. There are a lot of things that never have coupons because they are staples.
2 weeks ago when I bought 20 boxes of cereal for $13 with the help of my Jacksonville coupon friend, I should have just gotten all Raisin Bran. I'm already sick of the other varieties I bought. P will never get sick of Rasin Bran. So that is what I should have bought.
I am going to try and do the coupon thing. What a defeatist attitude. I am weekly going to go though and buy the items that we will eat, that I can use coupons and sales, to get for cheaper than I would at Save a lot. But I'm still going to go get flour at Save a lot when I run out...
