My friend Tessie JUST started couponing this week. She has been a single mom of 3, and a full-time nurse, for the last few years – and just didn’t have the time to coupon. She still doesn’t really have extra time, but since getting married recently she’s decided to hop aboard the coupon bandwagon and this is her very first week!
She was so excited after a trip to Bi-Lo on Monday, that she brought her van full of groceries over to show me – here’s how she did!
(Tessie, I’m so proud of you honey!!)
(2) Kelloggs Corn Flakes
(2) Oscar Mayer Lunchables
(2) Red Baron Pizzas
(4) Wyler’s Mixes
(2) Sargento Cheese
(1) Sprite Zero 2-Liter
(1) Kool Aid Jammers
(1) Vitamin Water
Pork Chops Family Pack
3 lb Ground Beef
1 Gallon Milk
Total Before Coupons/Savings = $65.90
Total AFTER Coupons/Savings = $29.64!
Tessie didn’t have tons of coupons to start with, so she kept her eyes on the prize by looking for BOGO items and closeout deals with store coupons attached. This is a great way to save on things like meat or dairy items!
Okay , now it’s YOUR turn! Feel free to share any deals you’ve picked up this week that you’re proud of!
