Today at Stater Bros. I spent $41.84 and saved $39.88. Not bad. Even better was spending 39.96 at Ralphs and saving $55.42. Whoo hoo! I even got register coupons back for about $3.50 AND will get cash back from Ralphs for about $6.50 just on todays transactions. I’ll be off to Target later to get a few very cheap and/or free items.
A few of the sites helping me are:
Yeah, the couponing takes extra time, but since I’m a stay at home mom, I MAKE the time. Cutting costs are part of my job.
Also, in these hard times many stores are accepting expired coupons. My husband found a coupon for Harbor Freight that expired yesterday, and he called and spoke to the manager who said he would accept it as long as he brought it in. (20% makes a difference!) Also, many restaurants are doing the same (Pat & Oscars to name just one), so it doesn’t hurt to ask.
Anyone else want to share their ideas?
