How I Saved $107.73 on One Trip To The Store

Hi Everyone,

 I often hear people say that they really cannot believe how much I save when I shop. So, I wanted to give you an item-by-item look at my last grocery receipt.  For a quick summary, I spent $58.41 but I SAVED….. $107.73!!!  That’s right. I purchased $166.14 worth of groceries for $58.41. I spent approximately ½ hour on making my list and putting the coupons with the list, and maybe another ½ hour in clipping & sorting the coupons into my box. So, essentially, I MADE over $50/hour for my efforts last week!  Here is how I did it:

 *MC – Manufacturer Coupon

*SC – Store Coupon

*BOGO – Buy one, Get one free

 This was from Publix

6 Kashi Pizza’s – on sale 50% off, $2.99 each, less 5 MC for $1 and 1 MC for $0.75

4 Kashi Chicken Florentine – on sale for $1.89, less 4 MC for $1

Publix cloth bag – $0..99

Pears – $1.05

Peaches – $2.40

2 Pringles – sale for $1.25 each, less 1 MC for $1

10 Del Monte canned corn – BOGO for $1.29, less $1.90 in MC

10 Del Monte Canned green beans – BOGO for $1.29

2 Breyer’s Ice Cream – BOGO for $4.99, less 2 MC for $1 each

4 Quaker Chewy Granola Bars – BOGO for $2.99, less 2 MC totaling $1.75

2 OM Bacon – on sale for $3, less MC for $1.50

10 Del Monte Tomato Sauce – on sale for 5 for $2

2 Kraft Miracle Whip – BOGO for $3.99, less MC for $0.75

1 6-pk Top Ramen noodles – $0.89

2 Friendship sour cream – on sale for $0.99 each

2 Clorox bleach – on sale for $1.67, less 2 MC for $0.50 each

2 Arnold Whole wheat bread – BOGO for $3.69, less 2 SC for $1 each (Publix Calendar coupons)

Publix Sweet Ham lunch meat – on sale for $3.99/lb, less $1 SC (Publix Baby Club)

4 Ken’s Salad Dressings – BOGO for $3.19, less 4 MC for $1 each

 In addition, I used a $5 off $50 or more coupon for Albertson’s from the Enjoy The City coupon books being sold by some schools as a fundraiser.

So, this shows you that I really do shop this way and it is definitely possible. My book gives you simple, step-by-step instructions on how to do exactly what I do each and every shopping trip.  My book sells for $7.95 and can be purchased here
