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!

Brrrriiinnngggg - yes that was my alarm clock going off at 5:45 am

Okay - so I was one of those crazy people at Albertson's at 6:00 am. I was dressed in yesterday's outfit, my hair was matted and I was digging the no make-up look. At least I wasn't the only crazy coupon shopper there at that time!!! As I got started I kept asking myself, is this really worth it??? Of course it was - check out what I got....

2 boxes of cinnamon rolls

2 boxes of Bisquick

2 Pillsbury orange rolls

3 Pillsbury cresent rolls

6 boxes of Gogurt

2 Betty crocker cookie bags

8 boxes of Toaster Strudel

3 boxes of Cheerios

3 boxes of Reese's Puffs

9 boxes of Cinnamon Toast Crunch

6 boxes of Cookie Crisp

11 boxes of fruit snacks

I spent a total of $67.11 and saved $158.96!!!! I bought a total of 62 items making each item an average of $1.08. I think this is one of the best shopping trips I've ever had. The store was pretty well stocked as I was leaving, I think Albertson's is prepared for this sale. Good luck to those of you heading out to take advantage of some pretty good deals.

Wow - that makes me feel like I didn't do that good when I see your out of pocket and your savings. I did have some high dollar items and non sale shopping on the ticket too so I guess that makes a difference. I love this!!

Stacie, I wish you'd put dates on your entries so we know what days you went. It'd make it a little easier to keep track.

Way to be on the ball with the 5:45. I don't think I'm that dedicated! In fact, I know I'm not. Yikes!
