More savvy shopping!

It's such a rush when I get a whole bunch of stuff without paying a whole bunch of money! This is my most recent haul...Because I have signed up to get 5 Sunday newspapers every week, I have a LOT of coupons! (I keep them in a binder that is ridiculously huge.) When there are sales at stores like Albertson's or Smith's, I can almost always get something for free or close to it. Today I got ALL of these groceries for under $45!! That's 20 jars of Skippy peanut butter, 4 YO+ yogurt 4-packs, 11 Yoplait yogurts, 8 bottles of Kraft salad dressing, 2 gallons of milk, 8 boxes of General Mills cereal, a big jar of Kraft mayo, 5 packages of Farmland sausages (my FREE items), 8 apples, and a package of Mickey Mouse-shaped hamburger patties...all for less than $45!! Can you see how happy all this food has made Christian?

I KNOW the adrenaline rush. I used to be a turbo coupon shopper. Our local store used to accept expired coupons & did double coupons. I too would get 3 Sunday papers because I could use 3 at the same time and still get double value. Things have changed now. I can't use expired coupons and they may only double the first 2 similar coupons, but I used a website called and for a dollar or two per week I would get a list of all the deals at my store (that way i wasn't pouring a couple hours over my sales ads and matching up coupons - they do it all for me).

I'm on a coupon time out right now because it does take some paper management skills. There's nothing worse than putting something in your cart that is supposed to be FREE and forgetting to put the coupon in the right envelope for check out.

Anyway, it looks like you are having a blast. It's totally addicting!!!

Alright, spill the beans. How are you doing this? 5 Sunday papers???? I have always heard of people getting fabulous deals at stores when they double or triple coupon, but I have never heard of a store letting you do that here. HOW ARE YOU DOING THIS!!!!??? I am SO impressed!
