I Finally Used A Coupon....(Link Up!)

Quite a few of them actually!  No, not that many.  I didn't take it to extremes, and I didn't get everything for free, but I was able to save a lot on things we had run out of, so that's the most important thing!

I finally got my coupons back in order (remember, I hadn't used one in like 3 weeks!), so after I typed up the grocery deals yesterday, putting my list together and gathering up my own coupons was easy!  I decided that I wanted to shop the sales at both Tom Thumb and Albertsons this week, so after I dropped my oldest daughter off at school this morning, my youngest and I hit the stores!

My first stop was Tom Thumb.  Here is what I picked up (click to enlarge):

Shelf Price:  $62.09
Sale Price:   $34.51  *Already   44% Savings
Price Paid After Coupons:   $23.51     *62% Savings

Note: I think I should have saved another $1 because when she scanned my $1/4 pizza coupon she said that it wouldn't take it.  There was no e-coupon on my receipt, so the only thing I can figure is that the ad said *when you buy 5* so there must have been an automatically deducted manufacturer coupon that gave the discount, though it does not appear on my receipt. (Their receipts are sooooo confusing!)


Next I hopped over to Albertons (after I got gas...$53 OUCH!).  Here is was I grabbed there (click to enlarge):
Total Shelf Price:  $54.15
Total Sale Price:   $24.37   *Already 55% Savings
Price Paid After Coupons:  $14.45     *73% Savings


The BBQ Sauce actually had a coupon at the register that made them 2 for $1 ($1 each regular price).  I grabbed two since the BBQ season is coming to an end, and I doubt I will see prices that low for a while.  I know there are some $0.50/1 from the 8/21 SS that will double and make these free though.  (Looks like some areas got the $1/2 which is the coupon they have in store.

I didn't get a whole lot of stuff today, but I did make a bit of progress into building my small stockpile back up...it had dwindled.  Plus, the things that I got should last a good while for packing lunches.  I'm not gonna lie though, those pizzas will be gone by next week.  We are really bad with the last night snacking around here!  I'm just glad we finally have something to snack on.  We were getting down to the last few boxes of cereal! LOL.

Where did or do you plan to shop this week?  If you have already, how did it go?  If you blogged about it, link up below!
