We went shopping! We went to two different places, Krogers and Meijers the local favs in Ohio.
Before we start, let me just say if you take your kids take your Husband...or you'll never make it out alive. If you don't take your kids...take your Husband, it goes faster, and it's a fun bonding thing...you'd be surprised how fun it is when you save that money and get excited. Hey financial troubles are the number one cause of divorce...so why not have a reason to celebrate being together over saving money.
It was a little hectic, and we didn't use coupons on everything, but we got it all on sale. Like the green peppers at Krogers were .59 each, which is a great price, so I bought 5 to cut up and freeze for later suppers. The sweet onions were .59 a lb, so I got three of those to cut up for later also.
Meijers has Chef Boyardee 5/5.00 and get a free Hunts pudding pack free (.88 value), but while we were shopping we found the Chef Boyardee Mini Dinosaurs for .76 and you still get the pudding pack free.
Your limited to one per transaction, so I went to the quick scan, and did it twice, and my husband once. So we got 15 cans of pasta, and 3- 4 pack of puddings for less than $13.
We had fun and saved some money. Our total cost was 90.60, our total coupon savings 80.32. That also includes four $5 coupons we got for buying 4 general mills items at Krogers (which we had coupons for.)
