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!

Singing the Praises to Albertson's

I had another great shopping trip. As I started to clip the coupons I didn't really think this was going to be that Wow, but it turned out really great after all.

My total was $79.07 and I saved $136.10. I purchased 69 items, making each item about $1.15 per item. For not thinking I was going to do well - I was more than pleasantly surprised.

Here's a rundown of what I got.

2 Gerber Graduates
3 Gerber baby food jars
1 Albertson's sour cream
6 Yoplait yogurts
3 bags of Nestly candybars (they were 3/$5 and I had 2, $1.00 off coupons - making each bag $1.00 - not bad)
2 Ore Ida steam mash (I had 2 coupons that would allow me to get each of them free. I will be blogging about this new campaign after I try them)
1 bag pizza rolls - Yea for box tops
2 Aunt Jemima pancake mixes
2 Aunt Jemima syrups
3, 8 pk Juicy Juice drinks (I had 2 coupons for $1.00 off each, along with the Albertson's promotion, it made each drink about $.20 for 100% juice)
1 bunch of bananas
2 canisters of regular Quaker quick oats
2 boxes of Quaker breakfast cookies (these are really good microwaved for a few seconds)
2 boxes of Quaker granola bites
3 boxes of Quaker granola bars
5 boxes of instant Quaker oats (Fruit & Cream)
1 bag of Albertson's chips
1 bag of Albertson's hot dog buns
1 head of cauliflower
6 bottles of spices (Albertson's and McCormick brands - basil, oregano, chili powder, garlic salt, onion powder, season salt)
5 bottles of soft soap (we go through a lot of soap)
3 boxes of Electrasol detergent (These came up at $.09 each - can't beat that!)
2 bags of Nestle chocolate chips
2 boxes of Albertson's Honey Oat flakes with strawberries
6 pkgs of Albertson's napkins (they even had some cute Halloween ones)
1 dozen eggs
1 4pk Scott's toilet paper (free)


These are the best buy's I came across. I got a raincheck for some of those Scrubbing bubbles action scrubbers. Along with the Albertson's promotion, I have some additional coupons to add to them.
