So. Here's the deal, guys. I used to think clipping coupons was lame-sauce because really--how much of a difference can saving 25 cents on a normally $3 item make?
Ummmm... a lot.
Especially when Smith's is having their double coupon event. But it's even better than doubling. Every single coupon that is less than $1 is rounded up to $1.
Every. Single. One.
Oh baby, oh baby.
In my haste to put my groceries away, I neglected to preserve my haul for time and all.... time.
But my sister didn't. My load was similar in size to hers. Check it out HERE.
And holy goodness--watching a receipt that size print out of the machine is the best feeling. And saving an average of 77% on everything I bought comes in at a close second. :)
Plus--you can't really beat FREE Krusteaz cookie mix. Their snickerdoodle mix is DIVINE.
I'm not going to say how much I spent, or saved--just yet. I would hate to spoil Adriane's guessing game. So I will bide my time.
In the meantime, though (cause I know you'll all be checking google reader every 5 minutes to see if I've told you about my incredible savings), you can check out the website we use to find these screaming awesome deals.
Feeling overwhelmed? Think it would be totally awesome but sounds too confusing? It's not. And here's an even awesome-er thing--Amy (THE savvy shopper) will be doing a FREEEE seminar in Provo to show just how easy it is to save money and stock up your pantries.
Pure genius. She is lots of fun and is very easy to understand. And she gives out prizes. :)
If you are in the area and are even remotely interested in this--GO. I was reluctant because I didn't want to be an epic failure at something that seemed too awesome to be possible. But I got all fired up and love being organized with my coupon, not to mention saving hundreds of dollars!
Oh yeah. And it's all 100% FREE.
