Friday Savings

Today at Walmart I spent $88.28 and used $9.80 in coupons. I know this is more than I usually spend, but it was the end of the month and I wanted to use some coupons before they expired. 2 of the coupons were for 2 packs of sponges each, so I now have 24 sponges - enough to last for quite awhile, so I won't need to buy any more soon. I also had a coupon for $4 off 2 Gillette deoderants, which made one of them only $.24. So, I won't have to buy my husband deoderant for awhile either. So, sometimes the extra expense in one trip is worth it, if the savings is worth it in the long run.

At Ralphs I spent $8.50 and saved $28.20! I am so excited about this great savings. I think it's one of the most savings I've ever managed to accomplish at one store! General Mills cereal was on sale for $1.99 + I had four $1 coupons. 2 were $1 off one cereal, making them only $.99. 2 were $1 off 2 cereals making them $1.49. Also, these were the big 18 oz. cereals, not the 12.8oz. cereals the deals are usually for. Gatorade was on sale for $.69. So, I ended up with 6 boxes of cereal and 4 Gatorade bottles. I would have bought more, but the limit was a total of 10.
