I cannot believe that I have not blogged since the first week of July. It has been a busy life...too busy really. I didn't get enough time to enjoy gardening and I certainly didn't have time to coupon...which is reflected in an out of control grocery budget. To be honest, I think I burned out on couponing for a bit but after getting low on items and having to pay full price...I realized that I don't want to pay full price if I don't have to. Hence...I have gotten more motivated to coupon. I will spend over my monthly budget this month but that is because I am trying to stock up on some needed items. I should be back on track next month.
Here are my deals this past week:
2 boxes of pasta and 4 jars of Ragu pasta sauce.
Retail: $11.64. Paid: $2.29 ~ 81% Savings!
3 boxes of kleenex (I did this same transactaion 2 times for a total of 6 boxes)
Retail: $4.43 Paid: $2.71 ~ 39% Savings. Not a super savings but we were seriously low on kleenex after my favorite youngest daughter caught a nasty cold and went through an alarming amount of this stuff!
I loved this deal. I was able to get this toilet paper for $1.00 (plus SST)! The had a coupon, plus I was able to use a $5.00 loyalty card reward they sent me! Score!
Retail: $10.08 Paid: $1.09 ~ 90% Savings!
Albertsons (sorry for the blurry pic):
Doiuble coupons are out! 1 bag of Tostitos and 2 tubes of toothpaste.
Retail: $10.01 Paid: $1.04 ~ 90% Savings
1 shampoo and 2 toothpaste.
Retail: $11.11 Paid: $1.34 ~ 88% Savings
1 Shampoo and 2 laundry detergent.
Retail: $18.23 Paid: $6.04 ~ 67% Savings!
Feels good to be back in the game again. :)
