Gotta Love Coupon Shopping!

I had a stellar day yesterday at the grocery store. Acme was having a great sale and I didn't even realize it. It's a good thing I read Shosh's and Sara's blogs or I might have missed it completely. I didn't make out quite as good as they did since I didn't have any coupons for cat/dog treats but I did pretty well with the other items on my list. I was dangerously low on oatmeal for the upcoming winter months and Acme decided to have a sale before I completely ran out. So glad am I. I picked up 4 big containers of Quaker Oats for .875 cents each. Gotta love it! These normally run about 4.99 so that was awesome in my opinion. Throw in some Barilla Picollini pasta at .25 cents a box and a ton of yogurt with great coupons and I am sitting pretty. The Quaker granola bars were a mere .50 cents per box and I even had coupons for Crush. I rarely see soda coupons so that was unexpected but welcomed.
All told I spent 43.07 on groceries that would have been 127.43. Definitely a good day at the grocery store. Gotta love coupon shopping!

I need to take you shopping with me-you're good! Course your choices are Sav-A-Lot, Wal-Mart and Super 1...WOOHOO for choices. Not alot of competition, not alot of sales happening.

Even though we live in a fairly small town, we have 4 grocery stores to choose from (not counting Walmart & Target) Safeway, Giant, Acme & Food Lion. The advantage to living in a small town is they are all very close by so I never have to go "out of my way" to buy something on sale.
