Charm is deceptive and beauty disappears, but a woman who honors the Lord should be praised. Proverbs 31:30

Back on the Counponing Wagon!

Since we've been on vacation or gone or what not I haven't really been "couponing" extremely. Here's the nice thing about it though, since I have an AMAZING stock pile, our grocery bills haven't been too high (except for when we hosted family here for a week, then it was a lot more than usual, just because we were feeding a lot more mouths).

So today #2 and I went to Albertsons to use DOUBLERS while #1 was at VBS (we did stay for a big majority of VBS, just left for a bit to do a few errands). I'd like to say we really saved a ton. We didn't spend much and got a LOT for free, when its all figured out.

Here's how my trip looked.

Transaction #1
2 Go-Gurts - 2.50
Double 1-.85 coupon
Receive $1 in Catalina
2 Ivory Soap Bars 1.59 
Double 2-$1/1 coupons from 7/1 P&G insert.
Most stores will only double the .59, but mine doubled the whole $1!
 OOP: 2.80 
Received $1 Cat

Transaction #2
 Pepperidge Farms JINGO Crackers 2.50
Double 1- $1 off coupon
Ivory Soap Bars 1.59
Double 1-$1/1 coupon from 7/1 P&G insert
Yosicle 3.99 (this is a TREAT for my kids, usually we make our Popsicles)
Double 1-$1 off coupon
OOP: 2.39 

Transaction #3
2 Milkyway Bars .79
Double 1-$1/2 Bars from Facebook. No longer available.
2 Chobani Yogurt 1.00
Double 2-$.30/1 Yogurt from Facebook. No longer available.
OOP: .50 

 Transaction #4
2 Pepperidge Farms JINGO Crackers  2.50
Double 2 - $1 off coupons
Ivory Soap Bars 1.59
Double 1-$1/1 coupon from 7/1 P&G insert
OOP: .81
I was supposed to get a $1 Cat from this (at least from my researching, but it didn't print.)

Transaction #5
2 Breakfast To Go 2.50
Double 2-$1 off
Ivory Soap Bars 1.59
Double 1-$1/1 coupon from 7/1 P&G insert
 OOP: .81
I also received $1 CAT from the Breakfast to go purchases.

Transaction #6
Suave Body Wash (HUGE bottle) 2.79
Double 1- .75 coupon
1.60lb Ground Beef 5.58
Use Store coupon of $2 off that was on the meat
Double 2-$1 Catalinas (from previous purchases)
OOP: 1.09

TOTAL OOP: $8.40
SAVED: 27.61 or 81%

Now, you're probably thinking what in the world is she going to do with 15 bars of soap. Well we'll donate half and then use the other have for crafting projects to come!!
