I finally made it to Kroger this afternoon. I had my 34 coupons in hand and my list ready to go! I make my shopping lists according to how I go through the grocery store. Organics section, produce, bread, juice, meat/chicken/pork, frozen, dairy and a few things from the middle this week! I also ordered my coupons in the stack according to this same shopping plan, so that way I can move my coupons from the “planned” stack to the actual stack. I did not use 2 that I had planned, and pulled out 2 that I needed after seeing a good deal!
There was a man who asked what I was up to…seeing that the whole “baby” basket of the cart was covered with my 2 lists and 2 coupon stacks. He was intrigued by the whole concept and I was so glad to share with him about savings and how to “make more” on your grocery bill!
The plan was to spend $126 on $200-250 worth of products! How did I do???
Here is what I purchased…a lot!
And below is what I spent! $132.88. Total before coupons and sales was $239.61!
Amount Saved $106.73!!!
Here is my fridge, happy and full of food again!
I had planned a crockpot meal tonight (I recently discovered Slow Cooker Thursday’s over at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom!) but since my kitchen was still not in order this morning, we are doing a bit of rearranging this week! We will likely go to our favorite BBQ joint with Nana tonight and “slow cook” tomorrow!
