I decided I wouldn't give up in trying to help with the finances here at home, so I went to my closest library and I found all about couponing and THAT is where I found MY new job! It does require time and diligence... but it has been very rewarding... Today I just want to share with you some of the great deals I found... If you're in Texas, those deals apply to you too! I just want to share in case it helps somebody else as much as it has helped me!
So... here's just a few of the great deals you can find at Kroger and they're good through midnight Tuesday, October, 2014
So... look some of the things I got:
I want to help end some of the myths most people have about couponing (myths that I used to believe)... most people think that couponing is just for "junk food" and people who eat healthy 'can't save' any money through couponing... I do try to eat healthy... I can't always afford Organic but I try my very best to eat the best choices within our budget... I would say that "the worst" thing I got this time are those Honey Nut Cheerios that I was not even sure I should get but then I thought it would be ok for a snack because if you've SEEN my girls you might think they don't eat much but if you KNOW them, then you know they eat as much (or sometimes more) than their mommy and daddy! So... I have to fill them up somehow and since we don't do candy here and I haven't baked much I am ok with my decision to buy this for them. If you don't like that, you do not have to buy them of course.
So... let me now explain to you how I purchased this and how much I spent:
(I get most of my coupons through my Sunday Newspaper )
Honey Nut Cheerios SALE 2x $5.00 - $1.00 coupon = 4.00
EGGS (Cage Free, Natural Eggs) = FREE with the purchase of 3 participating items (Silk Almond, Soy or Coconut Milk, Kashi Go Lean Cereal, Pizza, Entrees & Waffles)
Silk Almond Unsweetened Milk SALE $2.99 - $1.00 coupon = 1.99
Silk Chocolate Almond Milk SALE $2.99 - 0.75 DIGITAL coupon = 2.24
Kashi Go Lean Crunch SALE $2.99
Suave Professionals Shampoo SALE $1.49 - 1.50 coupon = FREE
(32oz.) TRESemme Shampoo SALE 3.99 AND TRESemme Conditioner SALE 3.99 - $5.00 coupon in the purchase of two TRESemme Items = 1.49 each. (2.98 for both)
Nature's Bounty Fish Oil BOGO SALE - $1.00 coupon = 10.29 for TWO!
For the items mentioned in the list above I paid a total of: $24.49
All these items combined have a total regular value of $52.98 - Total Savings over 50%
It's just a matter of looking for the deals! And yes, you can still eat healthy! I also got Bob's Red Mill Pearl Barley on Sale and Organic Carrots 2 lbs. for 1.48, Organic Granny Smith Apples $1.48 (All prices are WITH Kroger Card), etc. So... run to your nearest Kroger and take advantage of these and more deals! You can also search for coupons on the Kroger.com site and load them to your kroger card, I will be providing you with coupons here also!
Yesterday I also went to Randall's! I got a lot and all within my budget! Matching Store Deals with Coupons IS the way to go! Randall's has great sales on Friday that you cannot miss! I will be RUNNING over there again early tomorrow morning! let me just give you an example:
Randall's, right now, has a SALE on the "Crystal Farms Natural Slices of Cheese" for $3.69 ... oh, you think that's an "ok deal?" well... Friday gets JUST PERFECT! you will be able to get 2 of those packaged slices of natural cheese for only 5.00! so ... only $2.50 each! If you buy natural cheese you know it is expensive! So ... this IS indeed a good deal!
I used to always think Randall's was way too pricey ... and IT CAN BE if not looking for coupons/deals (Note: Always check out their meat aisle, you might find amazing things that get a price cut by the manager) ...
Let me just show you my receipt from yesterday:
The original total was 139.60 - Total Savings of 66.73 I saved 48% ... You can go to Randalls.com and create an account (you'll need a member card from the store) and you can load coupons and discounts directly to your card as well!
See that? ... it was pretty amazing! They even have a deal with some participating items/brands (glade candles, pledge, scrubbing bubbles, lysol, etc.) and if you buy 3 of those (MIX&MATCH) you get $3.00 in savings... and that's already good BUT if on top of that you happen to have your own coupons for each of those items... well... you end up with a lot of great savings! It is REALLY, REALLY COOL!
So... yes... I got a job! And it pays off! It is work indeed! Lots of work! But it makes me very happy when I see my bill go from 140.00 to 70.00 or... like... at CVS... that they have a Sale for Tide for only 5.94, sounds good but 5.94 is too much for me to pay, so ... I had 2.00 cash rewards + a coupon of 2.00 for Tide Detergent... Yes... the result is 1.94... now... that's more like it! Don't you think? Stay tuned for more tips and great deals! Now let me go do my happy dance and take a sip of my Torch Coffee that I got with a 40% discount, you want some too? Well... I'll be sharing a code exclusive for my readers with an AWESOME discount for you to try it!
