Run, Don't Walk, To This Sale!

Last year, I successfully hoarded an entire years worth of supplies for my family in a relatively short span of time. Over the past twelve months, I have only purchased perishables, meat, and produce. Its been amazing how much money I have saved with couponing. After my extended break, I recently returned to couponing. I must say that I have exceeded my savings from last year and my storage is already replenished. The most recent sale at Smiths is to great to pass up. I thought I would post a picture and list of what I got with my total amount spent and saved. If you would like to shop this sale, then check out the PYP Grocery Smarts website where you can get the detailed list of what's on sale and what coupons to pair it with. I also frequent this forum to better prepare for unadvertised sales and where to find the coupons to pair with those deals. I was also inspired by the PYP blog post about this sale that is found here. Its amazing to me that little tiny pieces of paper paired with the right sale equal major savings! Its highly addicting and gratifying being a couponista!

My total before sales and coupons was $163.13. After sales promos and coupons, I spent only $64.39. I saved a total of $98.74! The amount that I saved on this sale alone has paid for my newspaper subscriptions. I purchased 94 items and so that's like paying .69 cents per item. I seriously heart couponing and I am proud to be a food hoarder.

Wow Moana! Way to go! I used to do the couponing thing too before I left my subscription expire due to the move. You reminded me about it and to get it going again when I can. I only did it for 1 year and saved and hoarded so much I haven't bought shampoo, conditioner, lotion or toothepaste in over 18 months! It feels great.
