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!

Rolling it over at Albertsons

Hopefully you took advantage of last weeks Albertson's sale, especially the General Mills sale.

Once again I procrastinated until the very last minute. Yes, I was there at 11:00 pm on Tuesday night. I thought I would be the only one there, and was pleasantly surprised to see about 6 or 7 other ladies doing the same thing. It was actually kind of fun because we were all helping each other find the specific sale items.
Okay - drum roll please....... I spent a total of $63.64 and saved $122.98. WOOT! WOOT!
It worked like this, Purchase #1:I had to spend $25 (before coupons and Albertsons savings) on General Mills products in order to get $10 back (Catalina at the register).
I bought:
4 Fiber One cereals
1 Plain Cheerios
6 Cheerios with crunch
(After all my coupons and Albertson's savings card I spent $21.25 and saved $28.87 and earned $10. I also used 1 set of *Albertson's double coupons).
Purchase #2

I took the $10 from my first purchase and bought:
2 Betty Crocker Stickerz fruit snacks
2 boxes of Cheerios
2 Yoplait Gogurts
2, 1/2 gallon Breyers ice cream
3, 6 pks of Coke
(I spent $7.09 and saved $40.73 and earned another $10. I also used another set of *double coupons).

Purchase #3

4 jars of Ragu spaghetti sauces

2 jars of Skippy peanut butter

6 boxes of Betty Crocker fruit snacks

(I spent $9.16 and saved $29.58. This earned me another $10 and they let me use another set of *Albertson's double coupons).

Purchase #4

2 pkgs of Yoplait Kids yogurt

2 8oz Kraft singles

1 jar of Ragu spaghetti sauce

1 gallon Albertsons oj

4 pkgs Bar S Chicken Jumbo franks

8 DiGiorno Flatbread Melts (raincheck from last weeks sale)

(I spent $26.14 and saved $23.80. I did not earn another $10 because the yogurt and Ragu were the only GM products in this purchase and it did not total $25).

*Each store determines how they will allow you to use the double coupons. Check with your store before assuming you can use more than one set*

This is how I got to the above savings. Sometimes these sales take a little planning ahead of time. In my opinion, it's worth the planning for the savings on the other end.

I'm new to this blog but wish I would have thought about asking for a rain check on the Digorno Flat Bread, I was all excited to get those so cheap and then they were out. Thanks! Next time I'll be sure and ask for one
