6/4 Couponing

This wasn't the best week for my couponing. Since last weekend was Memorial Day, there were no coupon inserts in the paper and all of the coupons in the P&G April insert expired May 31. I check online for what coupons will be coming out tomorrow, and still didn't see many good match-ups that would have made me want to wait to do my shopping tomorrow. I really just wanted to pick up the few things I could get for free, or super cheap.

These next few weeks my husband and I will have some family coming into town so I know I'm not going to have to do much cooking past this Thursday. I still have 2 packs of chicken in the freezer that I can get 4 meals out of...I really hope Harris Teeter has some good meat sales in the next 2 weeks so I can restock! I also have a few filets of frozen Mahi Mahi that I can cook for myself when my husband is working. He is going offshore fishing again on Tuesday so hopefully he will come back with some more fish for the freezer!

I don't have my meals planned yet for next week...but depending on what I decide will determine whether I need to buy any veggies.

The purchase that I'm most thrilled with is the John Freida. The bottles retailed for $5.49 each. Publix was having a saled and they were each $2 off, I combined that with a $3 off coupon I had...so the bottles became .49 each!


What I got:
-1 box elbow macaroni
-1 carton of eggs ($1.62, I didn't have a coupon for but needed them for baking)
-1 box Raisin Bran cereal
-1 box thin spaghetti
-4 boxes Ronzoni Garden Delight fettuccine
-3 bottles Jack Daniels BBQ sauce
-2 bottles John Freida Root Awakening Shampoo
-1 bottles John Freida Root Awakening Conditioner

Total Spent: $7.49                                       Total Saved: $34.82

  1. WOW! You saved so much!! I, too, like to cook with minimal ingredients because let's face it, being a recent college grad does not have me rolling in the big bucks right now haha. And you just inspired me to work even harder at understanding what I am buying and how to save with couponing! Thanks for sharing!
