Here's my story.
Kraft Salad Dressing
6 bags of goldfish
2 bags of Hanovers pretzels
um... I think there was more
Nivea Body Wash
But this is not where my story ends. Today I went to Safeway. They have a deal where if you spend $30 on certain products you get $10 off your next purchase. There are over a 3000 choices. So I spent the time and found the actual list online and matched what I needed, with what I had coupons for and what was on the list of 3000. Then I realized that my coupons expired today and I packed the kids up and off we went. You see by preparing ahead of time I could get my future $10 without actually spending $30 because I really probably only spent about $15 using coupons.
So I'm going through the aisles getting stuff on my list (always use a list) when I hit the meat department and realized they were having a BIG sale. And I bought a lot of meat (over 35 lbs). I went to the check out and almost fainted when the bill ran up to $85. I kept shaking my head as I was leaving the store and realized they never gave me my future $10 so I went back and they said they couldn't give me the coupon because it automatically rings up but they could give me a crisp $10 (if that was ok). Ummm...yeah!!! So my bill was really $75. I felt better. Then I looked at my bill again and realized I had saved $147. That meant my total bill would have been $222.
Here is what I got for $75. I did not feel so bad after my realization.
- 2 gallons of milk
- 8 jars of Bertolli Spaghetti Sauce
- taco shells
- 3 bags of Mission torilla chips
- flat of bottled water
- 4 cases of coke and diet dr. pepper
- 2 bags of preztels (regular size)
- 2 pork sausage rolls
- 12 lbs of chicken breast(boneless)
- 5 lbs of sirloin (boneless)
- 15 lbs of pork loin chops (boneless)
- 5 lbs of chicken legs
- 2 mangos
- 4 boxes of microwave popcorn
And now that I wrote it out I feel like I could have done better. But $75 is not all that bad.
