It's Sunday, so you know what that means. I had errands to run and grocery shopping to do. I bought a newspaper, reviewed all of the flyer's, as well as my stash of coupons; and I headed to Fry's.
I had to replace a number of staple items, since our fridge had been on the fritz last week; and I didn't have many coupons for the things that I needed, but I did have the Albertsons $10 off a $100 or more purchase; and since Fry's honors competitors coupons, they gladly accept it. I LOVE that coupon!
After watching "Extreme Couponing," I', convinced that couponing can be an addiction; although it's not one of mine. I do really enjoy the rush that I get when I find a great deal; but I don't think I'm quite ready for a Twelve step program, like some of the people on that show. I'm sorry, I admire their savings abilities, I really do. But if you're buying things that you don't even use, just because you have a coupon for it and you can get it for a good price, I think that there's a meeting that you need to go to.... But I digress.
I'm very excited to tell you about my savings of the day. In case you're interested, you have until Wednesday to follow in my footsteps, if you use this plan... This week Fry's has Cheerios, Honey Nut Cheerios and a couple of other General Mills cereals, on sale for $2.79 a box. They're offering a $5 gift card, if you buy four boxes. I had two coupons, each for $1.00 off of 2 boxes of cereal; so I purchased four; which dropped the price to $2.29 a box AND I received the $5 gift card to use towards my next purchase. I'm sure the extreme couponers would have found a way for the store to owe them money; but I am very content with my purchase and savings; and I hope these hints may be helpful for you too. Happy shopping!
Till next time...
