So the ladies at www.moneysavingmom.com try to post what they bought and how much they saved in their shopping trips. Here is the one my sister and I did tonight at Jewel.We used lots of coupons, buying things that were only on sale. We got a huge bag of carrots, 16 drumsticks, 3 air sprays, 2 cake mixes and 3 frostings, 10 Dannon yogurts, 4 baby food, 1 Earthgrain bread, 1 anytizer, 1 simple harvest snack bar box, 1 true delight snack bar box, 1 quacker fiber bar box, 1 tostinos pizza puffs, 6 lean cuisine meals, 1 hot pocket meal, 2 bottles of chocolate milk, 1 reusable grocery bag, and a pack of schick disposable razors.
so that is a lot of stuff, right? It should have cost us $88.... but with our savy shopping and coupon cutting, we paid $47.78. A total savings of $40.25!! I still think we could have done better but not too bad in any case. What do you think?
