Now, I am far from those ladies on TLC who can get 1 million dollars worth of stuff for 2 cents. But, I was pretty proud of my haul and how much I saved. Let's just say we are set for a while! ;)
It's pretty annoying that Wal-Mart doesn't put 'amount saved' on their receipts. Because I'm not going to sit here and add up every single dollar :/ What I can tell you is that the total was about $270 or so before my coupons and I only paid $191.88 after my coupons. So that's some pretty good savings to me! And it's stuff we actually use. DH laughed because most of it was for him and he now has a 'store' in his bathroom cabinet.
what? I'm not laying all of that out nice and pretty. I could barely get it all put away! ;)
I used coupons at Publix too. But, food coupons are just a lot harder for me. There doesn't seem to be many for foods that we actually eat. So, today I only bought things that were on sale and that I had a coupon for. According to the Publix receipt, I saved $42.75 ($31.15 from sales and $11.60 in coupons)

The two things I was most proud of were the toothbrushes and the Crystal Light. I had a coupon for $2 off 2 Oral B toothbrushes. The toothbrushes were $1.39 each so I got them for 39 cents each!! Woo hoo! I had 2 coupons so I got 4 toothbrushes.
For the Crystal Light, it was buy one get one free at Publix and I had a coupon for $1 off. So they were $2 a piece and with the coupon it made it $1!
Couponing is fun! :)
Someone was asking me where I get the coupons. It took me a while to make my 'stockpile,' but I got them from newspapers, online and the actual stores. Our Publix takes coupons from Ingles and Kroger as well. Check out websites like southernsavers.com because they are very helpful!
I hope everyone had a great week!
