(Name that movie!)
I'm not one to toot my own horn on a regular basis, but I need to brag. As some of you know, bargain shopping is one of my favorite hobbies as of late, sometimes to the extreme (yes, I get 5 Sunday papers a week just for the coupons). So I thought I would share my most recent purchase here on the 'ole blog as some of my other savvy shopper friends have done.
Here's what I purchased tonight:
10 boxes of Life cereal
4 boxes of Quaker instant oatmeal
8 boxes of Quaker chewy granola bars
8 Healthy Choice Cafe Steamers
3 canisters of Scrubbing Bubbles
3 bottles of Fantastik cleaner
4 bottles of Windex glass cleaner
2 cartons of Egg Beaters
And here's the math:
Purchase price before all deals and coupons: $163.85
Manufacturer coupon savings: $43.65
Hot Buy/Preferred savings: $85.98
Total amount paid: $34.22
TOTAL SAVINGS: $129.63
On top of that I got a $5.00 coupon off my next purchase.
I literally left the store patting my own back. Some people might think it's a little silly, but I figure with the economy in the state that it's in, it's the least I can do to pitch in and make our money stretch a bit farther.
