BIG Shopping Trip! (Saved 76%!)

We always tell new couponers that in order to not get overwhelmed – it’s best to pick out 1 grocery and 1 drugstore to shop each week.  However – sometimes it’s fun to just hit ‘em all up for the best deals and come home with a great haul!  Time2Save TeamMember Lindsay has a great trip to share from this week – 76% Savings!

I just got back from a grocery store/drugstore run.  I hit Bi-lo, Food Lion, Publix, CVS, & Walgreens.  I left my house around 7:30 & was back in the driveway before 10:00 (and I live 30 miles away from Publix!)  I only bought what I brought coupons for, except for the bread, crackers, &  regular milk (and gum that my son had to have).  I spent $36.91 total at all 5 stores combines & saved $116.  Here is most of what I got (a few items missing because my kids grabbed some stuff before I could get a pic.)

Whats here:
12 jars peanut butter
12 Boxes of Betty Crocker fruit snacks
5 Totino’s Pizzas
4 boxes Special K Cereal

    Hey Donna…great deals. I went tonight to Publix and they are out of Peanut Butter and Yoplait Smoothies (this is the Chattanooga area ones). I was wondering where you got the Mott’s Medley Juices. I’ve read through the grocery deals and didn’t see them…but very well could have missed them. I have some qs for them and have been waiting for a good sale as much juice as we go through! Have a great evening!

    I feel the same way as Kelli. Also, I do not have the room to store alot of extra stuff. Maybe 2 weeks worth. Any ideas for this type of shopping?

    I simply can not score these great deals and savings and it is very frustrating. But I am pleased for anyone that can do this. I must be missing something
