I saved $90.00, spent $130.00 for two weeks of food

I am getting better with the coupon shopping.  Tonight I went to two stores to work the deals and I think I did fairly well.  First went to Strack and Van Til where my bill was about $100.00 and I paid after coupons, $64.00.  I got things like cases of pop, water, liters of pop, ground beef, round steak, cheese, salami, 2 loaves of bread, two dozen eggs, cleaning products, deodorant, laundry soap (4 of them) and so much more!  I was more than thrilled to have saved close to $45.00.  Then on to Jewel where again, total bill was around $100.00 and I spent $65.00, saved $49.00!  I got a Stouffers meal, 2 gallons of milk, 3 packs of refridge pudding by Jello, a loaf of french bread, honey ham, 2 12 packs of beer, toothpaste, OJ, lemonade, grape juices, shampoo, fabric softener, chocolate milk powder mix, cheese, taco stuff, and more and more.

I honestly can’t tell you how happy I am to have saved almost 100.00, or better yet 50% of my bill.  I shopped with coupons in hand and knowing what I wanted.  I do have to go back to the store because they rang up the Stouffers meals wrong and I need to get a raincheck for strawberries!  They had those at $1.48 each!!!

I love coupon shopping!  I don’t know why it took me so long to get back into the habit.  That $90.00 we saved can now happily go into my gas tank! 😛
