Now THAT'S What I'm Talking About!
So, more on my recent obsession with bargain shopping, I finally pulled off a big one!!! I was off on Wednesday this week, so I got the ads out early in the morning and went thru my coupons and planned the perfect trip! Farm Fresh was having a super sale on Pop Tarts and some cereals, and I had some great coupons, and on Wednesday they double up to a dollar. So, I got (drumroll please!) two boxes of cereal (9oz each, which is smaller than I'd usually get, but worth it), two boxes of Pop Tarts, and two jars of peanut butter (again, smaller than I'd usually buy) for THREE DOLLARS AND EIGHTEEN CENTS!!! That's like fifty cents per item!!! And I could have saved another dollar twenty but I lost the second peanut butter coupon. I guess when things are buy one get one, you HAVE TO HAVE BOTH coupons, that woulda made a huge difference. I'm still learning, but come on! And I still got a shopper's high, so it was totally worth it! And I was driving right by Farm Fresh on my way to Melissa's anyway, so it wasn't even a special trip. Check me out! I just wish we had a Publix or a CVS, all the blogs I stalk to try and figure this stuff out say that those two have the best deals.
