Just got back from our twice monthly HEB trip and I managed to top my own coupon savings record! WhooHOOOOO! Here goes the break down!
Store brand savings: $9.99
On Sale Savings: $7.72
COUPON SAVINGS: $89.65
What a rush that was! Before savings the total was staggering...$384.55. We definitely did not have that type of money to spend. We are usually pleased with a total bill of $300 or less for a 2 week period. That is $150 a week for all of our consumer goods. We don't 'shop'. We get what we need on our grocery trip and no other shopping in between. So that averages $150 per week for a family of four. With the economy like it is, I am not pleased with that but it is a reality.
Well today we paid $297 for nearly $400 worth of items. We doubled up on body washes and shampoos with great coupon and sale deals so we wont need them the next 2 trips. There were also quite a few great surprises with unadvertised combo locos on items I was already planning to buy. For instance I had a coupon for $1 off lunchables with fruit and no drink. There was a combo loco for corn nut chips free when you bought those lunchables..so I got lunchables for like 89cents each plus a free snack that I seperated out into snack sized ziplock bags and made like 6 servings out of for snacks for the girls. There was also a great Revlon deal for $3 off and a wonderful bargain on HEB brand muffin bars. We got more than we needed for this 2 week grocery period, enough for a memorial day BBQ, a 12 pk beer, pull ups, 2 weeks of meals, and food to take to a friends house...JUST TONS OF STUFF! I am so very excited. The people in line were in awe. MAN THAT FELT GOOD! Keep clipping girls, over time it gets easier and easier to save!
