We used our faithful method of shopping and saving sanity with 2 small children. I made the list--gathered the coupons--and Jason shopped. We usually save more when I can go with his because I always take my binder with me and he BEGS me to not make him take it...lol. But in the end the extra savings we would have earned seem futile when I think about going alone or going together with BOTH kids. So this is our method.
Store brand savings: $4.46
Coupon savings: $63.69
There were some especially great savings this week. I had 3 coupons for regular cheerios. One for $1 off 2 and 2 for 55cents off one (and they could be combined) Then in store they had $4 off 4 boxes...That is $6.10 savings on 4 boxes of cheerios with total cost of $10.72. We paid a tad over a dollar per box---I can live with that.
They also had the same deal for fruit roll ups this week. I had a coupon and they had $4 off 4. They are $2.37 each and I think my coupon was $1 off 3. So we saved $5 on 4 and paid $1.12 per box. Great for my girl's snack drawer.
The store also had welch's juice coupons in store that could be used in combination with the 55 cent coupons I already planned to use. I think the in-store was for $1 off each. So we saved $2.10 and paid only $1.42 for each.
This is also a great week to stock up on Aussie brand hair products. That is my favorite brand and I took advantage of 3 of the $1 off coupons for hair spray, mousee and gel.
Another great coupon floating around is the 55 cents off cherub tomatoes. It is very rare to get a coupon for produce so I took advantage of 3 of them. My girls and hubby love tomatoes as snacks (I am TERRIBLY allergic to them).
Now my favorite deal of the week came from the catalina coupons--those are the coupons that print at register. We got a $1 off any HEB brand item compliments of Dole fruit Crisps and then.....HOLD YOUR BREATH...a $5 off your next shopping order compliments of general mills cereals. COOL HUH! I am tickled! :)
happy couponing ladies!
