Super Savings Saturday

Some days, couponing just makes me annoyed. I hate doing it, but I make myself.

And then today, I was gleeful. I had the time to do it; I did my homework on Southern Savers and printed out the right coupons. I zoomed around Publix, getting only what I planned on, and saving a ton of money. Kroger was not quite as easy, and I ended up going a tiny tiny bit over what I wanted to spend. I should have put something back, but it was such a small amount and I still struggle with being embarassed over that.

At Publix, I bought blueberries, one plum tomato, Huggies baby wash, Granny Smith apples, Muir Glen tomato paste, Publix redskin potato salad, 2 Tai Pei frozen dinners, A-1 marinade, and Blue Diamond almonds. With my coupons, the Huggies wash was 14 cents, the marinade I got a 55 cent overage, the potato salad was 45 cents with a Baby Club coupon, the almonds were 59 cents, the tomato paste was 9 cents, and the Tai Pei dinners were 99 cents each. I spent $7.54 before tax.

At Kroger, I bought Marzetti veggie dip (on clearance), salsa, shredded cheese, cheese slices, frozen cornish game hen halves (.99 with $1 off catalina coupon), bakery buns, Dole salad (.71 on clearance), a Betty Crocker warm delight (.49 with cellfire and doubled manufacturer coupon), ground turkey, cherries, peaches, 6 yoplait cups (1.80 for with cellfire and doubled mfg Q), tortilla chips, lunchmeat ham, Santa Cruz strawberry lemonade (.74 with coupon), refried beans, natural peanut butter, granola bars, and a salmon fillet (1.98 on clearance). I spent $29.93 before tax.

Altogether, about $38 before tax, but more than $40 after tax. I’m trying to not spend over $40 total. But still, a very successful trip! I’m trying to do more shopping for what I can get really, really cheap and making what I can with those ingredients. So for this next week, I have 2 rolls of lean ground beef I got for about $1.50 each and some shrimp I got for $4, as well as a freezer meal.

I found all my deals for this week on Southern Savers. I’m also linking this up with Super Saver Saturday at Money Saving Mom.

  1. Thanks so much for your comments on my little blog! I am flattered that you are reading my China posts. We had a life-changing expereince over there last year, to put it lightly. Great job on the couponing. I recently have become more of a coupon-er and just the thought of paying full price seems painful to me now!
