I used to be an avid couponer and I loved doing it. I would get 4 Sunday papers a week and clip and organize my coupons weekly. I have not done this regularly this past year. Life has just been too crazy. I've vowed to start again, though. I really see a difference in my grocery budget when I do coupon.
I hit the GM sale at Albertsons this morning and got all this for $32.88. I did save a total of $53.68, which is more than I spent! I think I did ok. My total would have been less if I would have been saving coupons, but I still did well. I got 6 boxes of cereal, 2 boxes of tuna helper, (I make these for lunches) 2 boxes of hamburger helper (Rob makes these for dinners when I work), 2 pkgs of Ball Park Franks (my kids LOVE these and we bbq hamburgers and hot dogs at LEAST 3xs a month in the summer, they are happy when they get the *good* hot dogs) and over 12 lbs of boneless, skinless chicken breasts. I was very happy to see the chicken on sale, because I was completely OUT!
If you want to check out other good deals, go to Call Her Blessed and see what she got at Albies last week!
