I have once again became the coupon mom. I did it for quite some time, but got too busy with school, but now I'm back! I was using them just at Crest for a while, but Homeland does double coupons up to two dollars. Homeland was always more pricy than Crest so I just never figured it was worth the hassle. I was WRONG.
I made my first homeland trip the other day. My total came to $45 (this was after store discounts). Then she started scanning my coupons. The price came down to $24 for all you see in the photo here. This is all name brand stuff. Some of it ended up being free after coupons.
Here is what I got if you can't see it in the photo:
- Kraft Miracle Whip
- Kraft Mayo
- Two Oscar Meyer Bologna
- Velvetta Cheese
- Velvetta Shells and Cheese
- 2 Kraft Easy Mac's
- 2 Velvetta Easy Mac's
- 4 Jello Puddings
- Rits Bits w/Cheese
- Cool Whip
- 2 Hidden Valley Ranch Dressings
- 1 Kraft Blue Cheese Dressing
- 3 Two Liters of Dr. Pepper
- Lipton Tea Bags (24 count)
- Lea and Pearlmans Worchestire Sauce
- Kraft BBQ Sauce
- Premium Saltine Crackers
The game is to use the coupons when the items are on sale and at their lowest price. Now, this is normally REALLY hard to track, but I enrolled in a site called Consumer Queen. On their message boards other people post deals they have seen around town. This is for ALL grocery stores, drug stores, etc...they post what coupons to use and when.
Now, I have gone a step further. I buy two Sunday papers, double the coupons, so I can stockpile when the price is SUPER low. Anyhow, this info was just too good NOT to share it.
Now I'm off to the grocery store again, because the new ad came out yesterday! I can't wait to see what my savings are!
