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!

A sale that is finally worth a handful of coupons!

If you've noticed it's been a while since I've blogged. There's nothing like having sick kids and being sick yourself. I think we're on the mend so I'll be keeping up better :0)

In my downtime, I've watched many blog about the great Smith's Mega Sale. So last night I spent some time clipping and organizing my coupons. I was truly thrilled to have a handful by the time I was done. Now that Albertsons is gone, it's been a long time since I've been able to do this.

Here's what I got:

4 boxes of Capri Sun

6, 8oz bags Kraft cheese (I put these in the freezer for later)

8 cans Hormel chili

2 bags of Pepperidge Farms Goldfish

4 Sobe Waters

2, 1/2 gallon OJ

2 boxes of Nature Valley granola bars

4 boxes of Nabisco crackers (2 Ritz, 2 Wheat Thins)

10 Hershey candy bars

4 Toaster Strudels

5 Krusteaz cookie mixes

2 Nestle refridgerator cookies (I love to freeze these)

3 pkgs of Solo Bowls
3 pkgs of Solo plates
3 pkgs of Solo cups
5 boxes of Finish (Electrasol) dishwasher tablets (I prefer the tablets over the gel packs. If I only do one dishwasher cycle per day - this will last me at least 3 months!)

I handed the checker my Smith's Grocery Card at the end and noticed prior to scanning it, my total was $199.xx (YIKES)! After scanning it, the price dropped to $122.xx (still a little scary) and after all the coupons were scanned my grand total came to $77.25. This is a 62% savings (according to my receipt). I'm pretty stoked.

Most of what I bought today will go into my storage rotation. I have to say it's been a long time since I was able to stock up on some of the items I got today. I live for these kinds of sales!

It's not too late to take advantage of this great sale. It will run one more week. Hope you can get some great savings as well :0)

Most of that food is garbage. Do you really feed that to your family?

Yes, I will feed this to my family. What you don't see is the 30-40lbs of produce my family gets from co-op every other week and the meats that I have stored in my freezer from buying a 1/4 of a cow. These items just supplement our diet and most of this stuff is considered treats. I do enjoy giving my family a treat from time to time.
