Feeling a little extra this lately?......
ME TOO! Until now!
I have heard a million things about people saving TONS of cash-ola at the stores by coupling sales ads and coupons. I have been interested, but lacked the time. So I continued to spend WAY TOO MUCH and say, "SOMEDAY".
HOW LAME IS THAT?!
SUPER DUPER LAME! THAT'S HOW LAME!
Today I bought (with food storage also in mind, mind you).....
(4) Boxes of Cereal
(1) Gallon of Milk
(8) Bottles of A1 (a must have for food storage. I could drink it with a straw!)
(7) DiGiorno Flatbread Pizzas
(8) Large packages of Jello/Pudding
6 lbs. of Chicken
a 12 pack of toilet paper
How much did I spend, you ask? Oh just a mere
That's right! THEY paid ME one dollar for all that stuff! MWAH HA HA HA CACKLE CACKLE CACKLE!
Uh Hem.....Excuse me.....that won't happen again. Unless it does!
Now that I have reigned in my pride let me direct you to THIS. That friends is the link to the beginning of my madness. Krazy Coupon Lady! One smart Mama I tell you! Everything you need to know about how to pair sales and coupons is all right there! You MUST visit the "10 Days" link if you want the step by step approach.
As a disclaimer I will tell you that I didn't do anything illegal. Just "SMART" the cashier told me. A teenage boy mind you, he admired my thrift gift as I handed over $13.03, he told me I saved $39.76, and then handed me another coupon for a $20 rebate! There were 4 transactions like this. All somewhat the same. All in all.....when rebates are returned.....they will have paid me, WAIT! Did I mention that already? Silly me! I am a bit excited! GAME ON! I can't wait for next week!
So, if you have stuck in through all of my bragging....shame on me! You now are privy to a special bit of information!
Kroger grocery stores are having a Mega Savings Event! Tomorrow I make the trip to the nearest store....over an hour and a half away (with all 3 kids...and doctors appointments....wish me luck!) PepsiCo., General Mills & My Blog Spark just sent me a $30 gift card. My mission: See how much I can save. What can I get with just $30?! Considering what I got with -1....I am thinking a LOT!
So, if you have made it to this point you are in luck! Tomorrow when I get home from my little escapade I will post all about how much I saved. THEN, and this is the best part, THEN my friends there will be a SUPER short drawing! On THURSDAY, August 20 @ noon I will announce one of you as the winner of a $30 KROGER GIFT CARD (thank you PepsiCo, General Mills & MyBlogSpark) JUST FOR YOU TO EXPERIENCE THE THRILL OF PENNY PINCHING ON SOMEONE ELSE'S PENNY! WOO HOO!
Alright, stay tuned! You have just until about tomorrow at 7pm before the post will be made and you can enter! Random.org will select the winner just 17 hours after the madness begins! Spread the word....or don't and up your chances of being the winner! :) WHATEVER!
