My Coupon Shopping Adventure

I took my husband's Grandma grocery shopping today which usually always takes at least half the day if not more. I have fun, but it can take up a lot of time if I have errands to run myself. The nice part about today was, I got to leave all my little munchkins at home with daddy while I helped his grandma out, but I also got to do some of my coupon shopping where I actually got to spend time in the stores to look around (with no kids, oh wait.....I already mentioned that). I had so much fun and I got some AMAZING deals today!

My first shopping trip was to Walgreens:

7 Baby Wipes - .75 each after using a Walgreens in-ad coupon & stacking w/ a mfg. coupon
3 Reynolds Wrap- FREE after Walgreens in-ad coupon & stacking w/ a mfg. coupon
2 Aveeno Body Wash- I paid $1.49 for 1 and I got the other 1 free after mfg. coupon
4 Sweetarts Candy-.33 each (I used these as filler items since I had more coupons than products
2 Snicker Heart Candy- .39 each (again, I used these as filler items to use all my mfg. coupons)

My total came to $10.55
I had a total savings of $37.11...........Not to Shabby! :)

My trip to Vons:

Trix Cereal- .88 (after my $1.00 off coupon)
Lucky Charms Cereal- .88 (after my $1.00 off coupon
2 Boxes of Cheese Nips- FREE after coupons
2 Boxes of Ritz Crackers- .50 each after coupons
3 Bags of Dorritos- .99 each after in-ad coupon
3 Dial Foam Soap Dispensers- .50 each after coupons
2 Craisins- $1.00 each after coupons
6-Carefree Panty Liners- FREE after coupons

I paid a total of $ 7.67 for all of this........Wow, I'm still in shock! :):):)
I saved 87% ($42.42 savings) after all my mfg. coupons & Vons Club Card Savings!

My second trip back to Vons:

Post Raisin Bran Cereal- FREE after coupon
2 Ritz Bits Crackers- .50 each after coupons
2 Yoplus Yogurts- $1.00 each after coupons
2 Craisins Trail Mix- $1.00 each after coupons
2 Craisins-$1.00 each after coupons
3 Carefree Panty Liners- FREE after coupons

I spent a total of $8.12
I saved 75% (23.35 savings) after all my coupons & Vons Club Card Savings!

I also went to CVS and picked up a dozen eggs for .77 each (Limit 2) w/ club card savings. The cashier was nice and let me have three in total. I went to Costco today and noticed the 18 count eggs went up in price to $3.35......that's ridiculous. I got 36 eggs for only $2.31! Now, that's my kind of deal!!!

I spent a whopping total of $28.65 for all my transactions between Vons, CVS & Walgreens. I think I did a great job getting the best bang for my buck, don't ya think?!?! I also went to Costco to pick up bread, milk & butter and then went to Winco for my fruits, vegetables & a few other misc. items. I didn't need a whole lot today other than the fresh stuff I buy weekly.

*Note: The stores I shop at are all close together so it's worth my time shopping for the best deal between them all since I'm not wasting any gas money. If it's not the same for you, then I do not recommend driving around town to all the different stores.


  1. What Winco do you go to? Isn't it far away?

  2. I take my husband's Grandma grocery shopping every two weeks so we go to the one on Peach & Ashlan. She usually needs to go to Costco & Walmart also, so we hit the ones in Clovis so they are all not far from eachother!
