I'm helping to co-organize my local mom's group now and a few weeks back saw an offer from a local blogger who gives coupon classes. I thought that would be a great event for the moms so it was set up for yesterday. Karen, of Saving the Family Money, did a great job and gave us some hints on how to maximize savings. Moms and babies alike had a blast.
I spent a bit of time last night after Nolan went to bed starting to get organized so I can make a nice go at this. My coupon organizing skills are the first thing I'm working on but in the mean time I wanted to have one fun store run to keep me motivated. So with a huge pile of coupons still on the kitchen table and not in a nice binder, I did my first trip.
I spent a total of $15.62!!!!!!! Here is a list of everything I got:
12 cans of Progresso Soup
2 Wanchai Frozen Meals (reg. $7.99 ea)
2 bottle of Wishbone Salad dressing
8 jars of Organic Earth's Best babyfood
2 frozen packs of Green Giant Vegetables
4 cans of Green Giant Vegetables
2 large cans of Organic Tomatoes (fire roasted and basil)
1 Sobe drink
Overall I think it was a great shopping trip and I loved seeing the price drop as all the coupons were scanned!! I shopped at our local Publix which was having a great Italian Days sale complete with store coupons for the Progresso items. Matching store coupons and manufacturer coupons on items that were on sale already led to such great deals!
