I Love Couponing

I am so excited! Today was the best couponing day I’ve EVER had. I bought $150 worth of groceries for $30. WooHoo!!!

Add on:
I went back out on Tuesday with Erik, we went to Smith’s this time. We bought 8 packs of Keebler Cookies, 2 32 oz containers of plain yogurt, and 2 bags of chips (yeah, a lot of junk, but hopefully it’ll last a long time) for $8.48. We saved 81% off of the original prices, and that was even counting part of the good deal we got on the yogurt, which had been marked down, but showed as the original price.

Total for the week:
$193 in groceries for less than $40!

At least with Walgreens they have a published policy though, so most of the time it can be straightened out pretty easily. I can’t even locate a policy for Fred Meyers, and everytime I go in the rules are different. I guess it’s good that I don’t need to shop there a lot, but is it that hard to train your cashiers in your own store’s policy? Come on people!
