This is my blog about finding the best value for my grocery buck in the Everett/Lake Stevens area. I am a wife, mother, and full-time administrative assistant...so I DO NOT have the time to shop for the lowest prices at all my local stores. I depend on a couple of great websites to tell me what coupons to use with what sales are where to get the most for my money. If you are are a "die hard" couponer...this site will not work for you. However, if you are like me, I can help you save quite a bit of money on a more moderate scale...less work and time involved.
I get 5 Everett Heralds each Sunday and have a fast way to clip those coupons each week...I will cover that more in a later post. Call the Herald at 425.339.3200 and ask for the "Couponer's Special." You get a paper each day and 5 Sunday papers each week for $99.00 for 6 months...well worth the cost.
Now for my specials this week ~ Albertsons has their double coupons out ~ YAHOO! I used 18 coupons today (six different transactions) for huge savings. To find the best ways to use your coupons, click on this link: http://thekrazycouponlady.com:8080/category/albertsons/ This site will have a list of coupons to use for the very best deals. Here is a picture of what I got today:
I spent $39.79 and got $97.31 worth of food!! Here's what I got!
4 pork tenderloin ~ b 1/g 1free plus used (2) 1.00 coupons that were then doubled...saved $19.64
20 yogurts ~ normally 75 cents ~ paid 30 cents each
2 gallons of milk ~ not on sale but badly needed
5 pans of frozen rolls ~ normally $2.99 each ~ paid 50 cents each
2 orange juices ~ normally $3.99 each ~ paid $1.59 each
2 Frigo String Cheese ~ normally $5.99 each ~ paid $2.99 each
1 Challenge Butter ~ normally $2.99 ~ paid $1.89
3 Rice ~ normally $2.79 each ~ paid 29 cents each
So ~ I clipped some coupons, looked at a couple of websites and spent a half an hour at Albertsons and saved $57.52 dollars...not too bad. What is even sweeter is that I have enough yogurt to get me through the month, four pork tenderloins in the freezer and even treated us to some yummy orange juice...which is a splurge for us.
