For a few months now I have been doing this coupon shopping technique that I learned at a class hosted by Karen. All you use are the coupons from the Sunday paper. I started by having 2 newspapers delivered to my house. After much success I had two more delivered. The max I can get is four or I'd probably do at least one more! Any way I was waiting for a good trip to document and I had a great one the other day. So....

This is what I got. I paid $10.50 for the lot. I saved $27.07 which is 61% Woohoo.

This is the breakdown:

Kroger Cake: got paid $0.11
Kroger pinto beans : got paid $0.32
Dawn dish soap: paid $0.59
Cereal (Honey Bunches of Oats with peaches and with strawberries, Honeycomb, and Golden Crisp): paid $0.75 each (got 10)
Texas Toast croutons : paid $0.29 each (got 4)
Ivory body wash: free (got 4)
Pizza rolls: $0.25 each (got 3, I would have got paid $0.05 for each if I got 10 participating items, but I didn't have enough coupons..still $0.25 is still awesome!)

And just recently I got two packages of string cheese for $4 (which is AMAZING for string cheese, I think I saved $6.50..they were the big packs..) and then I got a $5 dollar rebate. So after I get that I will have been paid $1 for them! Awesome!

I bought my first two papers for $52 each for a year. Not bad a dollar a paper..then they went on sale for $39 for a year so I got the other two! Now they are on sale for $20!!!!!! $20 for a whole year! That is amazing. If I could get more I would! I only get the Sunday edition for the coupons, and I have already saved WAY more than I paid for the subscriptions and it hasn't even been 6 months yet. I actually enjoy going to the store now and can't wait to see what I'll get for cheap or free each week. I know I'm kinda a nerd. But I LOVE it. Poor Dave has to hear it every week when I get back from the store. But I just think it is so cool....


  1. Yeah, I would say it's pretty cool. I need to do this, too. I just don't feel like I have time. ;) But, I don't know if I feel right anyway.

  2. Okay you have to teach me how you did this. I clip coupons from my Sunday paper and never save nearly as much as you just did. Jeez....

    Love your Etsy page. Mine isn't as cute. I need help with that too. Hopefully when I grow up I'll be as talented as you.

    Love you guys! Happy late Birthday! Tell Kels congrats from the Texas herd.
