Shopping anyone?

I had the blessing last weekend of going grocery shopping with a friend of mine who happens to be the world's best couponer!  She is amazing y'all!  She has not been on the TV show "Extreme Couponing", but she SHOULD be!

For all you that think coupons don't save you money, take a look at this!

This was PRE-COUPONS.  $410.34 !!!  We got nervous because it was a little higher than expected, but not to worry, we had COUPONS.

 This was AFTER-COUPONS.  $8.08.  Yes, people.  $8.08.  AMAZING.

In case you thought we bought things we didn't need, let me tell you what we bought.......
  • yeast rolls
  • cinnamon rolls
  • vitamins
  • sausage
  • toilet paper
  • cat food
  • pet treats
  • Lil Debbies
  • Splenda
  • Bob Evans brand frozen side dishes
  • a few other items, including a gift card!
What an energizing shopping trip to get me back on track with my couponing!

Update:  No--I don't have a cat!  The cat treats and stuff were for the girl I went with!

Enjoy your weekend!


  1. You don't have a cat.

    - your dear brother, Jamie

  2. ha ha..she said the cat stuff wasn't for I think that's great, but it does seem that people buy stuff they don't need, just to save a buck! Good job!

  3. Wow...I have always said if you buy what you need and can USE that's great. But, I know so many that buy things they don't and stock pile and things go to waste, expire before they can possibly use it all.

  4. Yes! I want to go shopping with you!! I wish I knew and understood how all this worked!


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I read each and every one and treasure every word!
