10 loaves of bread – .78 cents each
4 jugs of mott’s natural apple juice – .70 cents each
10 jars of peanut butter – .44 cents each
2 boxes of zip lock bags – .29 cents each
4 bottles of salad dressing – .29 cents each
8 boxes of cereal – $1 each
8 cans of pillsbury flaky biscuits – .69 cents each
5 cans of pillsbury breadstick dough – .07 cents each –Seven Cents!
6 jars of relish (sweet and dill) – Free — actually I was credited a penny back on each jar.The breadsticks were normally $2.15 but because of the sale and double coupons, I paid .07 cents for them. The peanut butter was normally $1.99, because of the sale and my coupons, I paid .44 cents. Ziplock bags were $2.19 normally– a deal at .29 cents! And the relish– normally $1.59, on sale for .99 cents, was better than free with a .50 cent coupon at a store that doubles to $1!
I was able to get other things as well, but spent a little over $50 for a load of groceries saving $90.80 in store sales combined with coupons.
I have been finding the best deals at two stores. One doubles up to .99 cents. The other one doubles up to .55 cents. LOVE those double coupons with buy one, get on free sales!
The grocery checkout lady wasn’t very impressed at first. As she was scanning my stack of coupons she got about half way through and said, “You can’t do this. You can’t use this many coupons. The computer is going to reject them any minute now.”
I asked her “Why, does the store have a limit on the amount of coupons you can use in one transaction.” (some stores limit how many coupons you can use in one transaction–but I knew this store did not.)
She said, “No we don’t have a limit….. but you can’t do this.”
I asked again, “Hmm…Is there a reason why?”
She kept scanning the coupons waiting for the computer to beep. But it never did. I was very careful to match my coupons up exactly with the products to insure that I didn’t have any problems.
After the computer totaled my bill, she said she couldn’t believe it. She eventually said, “Wow, Have a nice day.”
And I did.
