About Me

I'm a Utah mom, just trying to make ends meet. Several years ago, I was introduced to a new way of couponing. I've been addicted ever since. I have a hard time paying full price for anything anymore.

I love couponing so much, I decided to become a teacher for Grocery Smarts.

I teach free classes and show you how to get everything you need at the grocery store and still leave $$$ in your pocket. I'll also teach you the best ways to get and organize your coupons. The best part of the class is when I show you how to match your current coupons up with the current local sales - getting the most bang for your buck!

2 trips to Smith's this week

I actually went to Smith's twice this week. I usually don't do this, but I really wanted the free Malt-o-Meal cereal so I went on Wednesday (first day of the sale). I don't know why I didn't take a picture of this shopping trip, but I didn't. I was floored though at the huge savings I had. I bought the cereal (4 bags - FREE), granola bars (4 boxes), coke, grapes, cake mix (3), straws, a sandwich, some california rolls (a new favorite) and some bread (2 loaves). In total I purchased 22 items. My grand total was $33.79 and my savings was $29.50. I really spent about $1.54 per item.

So here's a picture of my second shopping trip.

4 bags of MOM cereal
8 boxes of pop tarts
5 boxes of Crest toothpaste
8 boxes of granola bars
4 boxes of butter
3 boxes of Electrasol (Finish)
2 boxes of Yoplait drinkable yogurts
1 box of contact solution
and of course another box of California rolls.

I spent $42.74 on 36 items, making each item about $1.19 a piece. I saved a total of $55.93.

Not bad for couple of days work!
