So I spent hours this week planning my trip because I needed to get up to $50 of stuff, which rarely happens even before I began couponing. That planning time was well worth it though, because our counter was full & our pantry is overflowing after last night's trip. I spent $35.45 at Target & $24.53 at Kroger; I spent a total of $59.98. Let's go through what it would have cost me.

I received quite a bit of free stuff because of the Free Friday Downloads & coupons & store sales. The only problem here is that I paid about $4 more than I should have not paying attention to the signs. My Cheerios should have been only $2.50 and I should have NOT paid for any milk. Blah! Reading is fundamental people! It's cool though cause I still saved lots and we're good on milk through Thanksgiving. We go through LOTS of milk around these parts so I try to participate in all of the FREE milk deals.

No pictures this time around cause I don't have a dedicated "take pics of deals" area just yet. I will soon though. I will soon.
Alright folks. That's all for now. I'll try to write up how it felt to do this soon. I've never actually handed anyone a stake of coupons and pretty much held up the line before - it was interesting & a bit embarrassing at the same time. I thought I was going during a non-peak time AND it was raining. Oh well, until next post ...
