Food makes me Happy...!!!

Okay, I am not gonna go all coupon preachin' on you...but a full pantry is a happy mom!! So I thought I would take a picture of one of my latest trips. Don't worry, I won't be doing this regularly or anything...more of just a proof to myself that all this time is really worth the effort!!

Here is what I got:

3 boxes Lean Pockets
4 of the 1.5 Quart Breyers Ice cream
1 Shampoo
1 Conditioner
1 Styling Mousse
2 cases Juicy Juice
7 Boxes Honey Nut Cheerios
4 bags of Trail Mix
8 cans of olives
2 bags baked Lays
8 boxes Kraft Mac 'N' Cheese how much would this have cost?? $128.17

How much did I spend????

That is a savings of 83%

Since the beginning of June when I started couponing, I have been able to save an average of 78%(ya...I am weird...I log every shopping trip...)

I DO believe it is worth it!!! I don't want you to think I am bragging though!! That would be horrible!! I get ALL of my info from the awesome buttons on my sidebar!! Check out those hard working blogs who are all out to save us money!! And if ya ever want a shopping buddy...well, you know where to find me!!!!

I want a shopping buddy. please? Come and teach me how to do this. Delaware is tax free! :)
I'm very impressed, especially because that is all food/items we would use.

Maria said...

Love your blog!

that is awsome!

Laura said...

You even made it look pretty. Go Tamra, super-coupon-lady. May the force be with you and the cans of olives be plentiful.

That's a lot of cherios.

I really need to start getting the paper so I can get all those double coupons at Albertsons.

Someday (hopefully soon) I will have the time to start couponing with you. Until then, I'll ask you before I buy BBQ sauce. :D

Where do you get your coupons from? I don't get good ones in the Sunday paper.
