I can not believe that it has been so long since I posted my grocery deals. Thankfully there are plenty of good things to report!
God is continuing to bless us with so much as I am learning to make our money go as far as possible. We have been able to send food each week to a local church for their food pantry. And still have plenty in our pantry and freezer to feed us. What a blessing couponing has been to our family!
First are some of the things that I got last week. This was actually 3 different trips that I combined into one photo. So the total for all of this before sales and coupons was $68.39 and what do you think I paid for it after sales and coupons? I paid an out of pocket grand total for all of this of .87cents! Yes that is right .87 is all I paid for this! That is a 99% savings!!
Here is the breakdown~
12- boxes Garden delights Pasta $1.71. I used a rain check that I had from a couple weeks back for buy one get one deal and then used 12 Manufactures coupons for $1.00 off each box making each box FREE with an OVERAGE OF $1.74

It is really amazing how with a little extra planning you can save so much and stretch you money even farther. It takes me an hour each week to go over the sales and write my list and gather the coupons to go with it. So really not that much time at all considering how much I am able to save.
If you have any questions please ask. I would love to help in any way that I can!
