Share Your Shopping Trips!


Do you love hearing ( and seeing) other couponers shopping trips?  I know I do!!!  Infact that is what motivated me to become a couponer in the first place.  I am hoping that I ( and my lovely readers…that’s you) can help to teach other people that they don’t have to pay $3.50 for toothpaste and they don’t have to eat off of the dollar menu at fast food restaurants every night ( hubby and I did this for almost a year because we thought we couldn’t afford anything else.)  I know that most couponers actually don’t “need” to use coupons and aren’t really struggling much but do it for the fun/challenge of it.  I am sure that they would still much rather get their bodywash for $0.50 rather than pay $5 since they work hard for their money!  

 So c’mon let’s motivate each other!  No savings are too small.  This is not a competition, just a friendly post to share the deals that you got throughout the week.

**The above picture is of reader, Adina‘s trip to Tops last week.  Don’t you just love how she organized everything to make the picture fun?!?!  I always look forward to her pictures of recent shopping trips. 

Here is how her trip went:

Quaker Canisters 20 *1.50 = 30.00
Bailey’s Creamers 3*1.67 = 5.01
Egg Beaters 2.50*4 = 10.00
Tuna 1.67*4 = 6.72
= 51.73
-5/40 Tops coupon
-20 Quaker coupons
-4 Bailey’s coupons
-.50/1 doubled to 1.00 Egg Beaters printable = 4.00
-.55/1 doubled to 1.10 Tuna coupons = 4.40
= 14.33
-2.00 coupon from the first order
= 12.33 out of pocket, saved 60.33
Boxes Quaker Oatmeal 2.00*10 = 20.00
Yoplait Yogurts .50*28 = 14.00
Bailey’s Creamers 1.67*4 = 6.68
= 40.68
-5/40 Tops coupon
-10 Oatmeal coupons
-.40/6 Yoplait doubled to .80/6 * 4 = 3.20
-4 Free Yoplait wyb 6 coupons = 2.00

Got back a 2.00 off on your next trip coupon from the Yoplait.

      Of course! Thanks so much for letting me share your picture. Your trips are always so much fun to look at. I just toss everything in a chair really quick and you create men made out of diapers and towers of cereal and oatmeal 🙂
