Coupon Savings For the Month

Standard

Thought I would share with you my savings this month. Yes, I coupon and yes, I save lots of money which in turn lets me purchase more things. Here is my month so far:

For those who do not know or remember my abbreviations, here is a cheat sheet.

TBC= total before coupons

CS=coupon savings from coupons and store specials

TOOP+total out of pocket I actually paid

S5= savings percentage

Plus at the bottom I break down the totals for all the stores combined!

Main St. Market

TBC: $88.63

CS: $38.59

TOOP: $50.04

S%: 44% saved

This is when I bought two huge family pork packs that had pork roasts, pork chops and pork ribs in them! Several months worth for just me!

Kroger:

TBC: $143.61

CS: $55.40

TOOP: $88.21

S%: 38% savings

I purchased 71 items on this order including a ton of sierra mist, the soda I drink.  So roughly a little over one dollar apiece for my items! Score!!

Walgreens:

TBC: $35.31

CS: $8.08

TOOP: $27.23

S%: 23%

Now for the final tally:

TBC: $267.55

CS: $102.07

TOOP: $165.45

Not too shabby! That is meat, milk, eggs, soda and all that kind of stuff plus stocking up on several items like soda and pork. Not too bad!

See? A few minutes (less than one hour actually) and I saved that much! I tell ya, if you aren’t couponing, you might as well be burning your money! Have a great day!!

Coupon Freebies I got

Standard

For those who say they don’t have the time to coupon I say thank you! I, however, find that the things I get free are the things I enjoy giving away the most! I always try to get anything that is free with coupons. What my family cannot use, I donate to the local food pantry. I find it is so enriching when you can give back.

So, in that vein, let me share my shopping and coupons that allowed me to get 27 bags of stayfree products, full size bags, for free! Well, to be honest, I did pay $3.77 for them all and also got two $5 gift cards from target as well. So overall, I made money by buying all these products. I earned $6.33! Here is the breakdown:

My stayfree stock up tonight. I got 7 overnight ultra thins, 9 regular ultra thins with wings,  2 super thin with wings, 6 regular thins and 5 carefree liners. How much did I spend? $3.77 total!!!! I actually have two $5 target gift cards too!! Woot woot!!!

This is my shopping excursion for free stayfree.  I bought 29 bags of stayfree and paid only $3.77! I also got two $5 gift cards from target as well. Yup, I love me some freebies!!! I donated some of them to the local food pantry and the rest are saved for my granddaughters. Retail therapy always helps. Happy shopping and couponing everyone!

I love to craft. Unfortunately, I do not get to as much as I would like to. I love to crochet. It hurts my hands so I limit myself accordingly. I love to scrapbook too. I find I can do this even on a bad day. However, I am not allowing myself to do it right now until I get this house organized. Call it a gift when I get done. I also like to make unique items and either sell them or give them away. I make jewelry. I love to cook. I love to coupon and stockpile foods.

These are my things I enjoy to do in my spare time.  Do you have crafts you enjoy? Please share your thoughts.
