I have become addicted to Couponing. In my free time I am looking for the biggest bang for my buck. I follow www.hip2save.com, thefrugalgirl.com. I am ADDICTED!! I can't wait for my next shopping trip.

The kids and I just went to Dillons to go shopping. I am a bit upset because I didn't realize until I got home that 3 items rang up different than what they had posted. But oh well it is raining and cold and I don't want to go back out in this crap!! 10 boxes of cereal...$7.75 for all 10 boxes. Roughly $0.78 a box. how my coupons worked. I downloaded some to my Dillons card. 2 $0.55, one for Cinnamon toast crunch, and 1 for Honey Nut Cheerios. I had 2 $0.55 coupons for Lucky Charms, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and Honey Nut Cheerios. I had 4 $0.75 off Cinnamon Cheerios (Dillons double coupons up to a dollar) so they were really $1.00 coupons. I then had 5 if you buy 2 you save $1.00. The cereal was on sale for $2.18 a box. However the Honey nut Cheerios didn't ring up right, the rang up $3.20. You may think that is a lot of cereal, but we eat about 2 boxes a week. WE LOVE CEREAL!! Some days Lacey will eat cereal for breakfast lunch and dinner.

Next on my list was Yogurt we eat tons of YOGURT, they were on sale 10 for 6, I had 2 coupons for $0.40 off 6 (really $0.80) I bought 12 for a $0.46 a piece.

Bounty was on sale for $5.99 for an 8 pack, I had downloaded a coupon to my card for $2.00, then had a $1 coupon. $2.99=$0.37 a roll.

Charmin on sale for $5.99 for 12 pack. They had a coupon you could download for $3.00. I also had a $1 coupon. $1.99=$0.17 a roll!!

Puffs were free, they had a special for $1.45, I had downloaded a $0.50 coupon, I had a coupon for $0.50 (doubled a $1) they paid me $0.05 to take them home!!

Pantene downloaded coupon for $1.00, on sale for $3.49. I had a $2 coupon and $1 coupon $1.49 a piece

Glide dental floss on sale for $2.50, I had downloaded a $0.75 coupon, and I had a $0.75 coupon, (doubled a $1) I paid $0.75.

Chex Mix Lacey's favorite snack on sale for $1.25 dowloaded coupon for $0.50 off 2. had a coupon for $0.50 off 2 (doubled a $1) 2 for $1.

Gogurts on sale for $1.99 had a downloaded coupon for $0.75 off 2, and had a coupon for $0.75 off 2 (doubled a $1) $1.12 a piece

Progresso soup on sale for $1.25, $1 off 4=$1 a piece

Than last but not least my favorite pretzels on sale for 2.99(rang up wrong $3.49) $1 off coupon $2.49.

My starting total before coupons and my plus card was $103.86 my ending out of pocket was $41.39!! Over 60% in savings!!

I am looking for boots for my mountain climbing adventure. I think I found a pair at Cabela's that I really like. I am going to go try them on next week Monday when I go to KC to pick up my aunt from the airport. Here is a picture og the boots

  1. I need someone to teach me couponing, I just dont get it and nothing I ever need has a coupon, but then I see you and Julie getting deals all the time! Makes me sad and Jealous! Lol Help me!!!

  2. Anna we need to get together and I will teach you couponing. I have learned a lot through trial and error. I am still learning. I thought that things I bought didn't have coupons until I started googling coupons for products I use. Target is great for couponing! I love that Target used to be my store we would spend $100 every time we were there and now I can go in and out and maybe spend $30.

  3. Couponing is so much work for me because they never have coupons for the items I buy....besides I buy the store brands most of the time.
    Congrats on your steal though!

  4. Ok questions!
    Does Dillons there take both a downloaded and a paper Q? I was told that they can't cause they're both manufacturer q's, which you can only use 1 per item which makes sense to me and Im ok with. But if they let you there, awesome!!

    Also, what day does Dillons double? I've never asked and sometimes they double other times not!

    I hardly coupon anymore unless its a great deal or a coupon for things we normally buy.....although I do love my freebies and samples!! I got so burnt out on it after doing it hardcore for about 4 months!!

  5. Liz I do buy a lot of store brand stuff.
    Julie Dillons here has never stopped me from using both. It makes sense to me, and I'd be okay with it. Dillons here double every day automatically up to a dollar.
    I go in spurts...I coupon like crazy and then don't do it for awhile. After today's shopping trip we have enough for awhile.
