Extreme Couponing to the Rescue

We decided the first part of June that we needed to save money when it came to grocery shopping. This came after we watched a few episodes of Extreme Couponing towards the end of May. LOL

We started with the first pay period in June and it’s been a wonderful month so far. The first trip we did I took my ads and coupons and the savings was good, but the experience wasn’t so good. I almost dropped my coupons several times because my ads kept trying to slide out of the cart. It was after that experience that I decided to make the big purchase which was the 3 ring binder. I’ll tell you I’m sure happy we decided to do that.

The next few trips were small ones as they were from coupons and sale prices that came up. Those savings were pretty big as well. This last trip was very exciting. We budget $250 ever two weeks and this is the first time in many months that we actually met that amount. We purchased $306 worth of merchandise and we paid $245. We saved $61 which is the biggest one yet.

For the month of June we saved over $235. What a great feeling that is to save so much. My goal for July is to save $250 for the month. I know if I stick to couponing I can make it happen. The savings is great because it makes things easier when it comes to the money and we have plenty of food in the house to eat.

Here are pictures of some of the things we purchased in June.

I received the items in this picture for $1.86 today. The collage picture was free, the Manwich was $1.49, and the Reynolds wrap was $0.14 each. That’s a $7.44 savings. WooHoo!!!!

This was from my shopping trip to Kmart today. The total before coupons was $21.36 and after coupons it was $7.65 which is a savings of $13.71 today. WooHoo!!!!

I got a bottle of tums and two rolls of tapes for $3.14. That’s a savings of $4.85.

Here is my recent trip to Target. I paid $2.40 for a bottle of shampoo, a bottle of conditioner, two five packs of Zyrtec, two bottles of deodorant, and a package of air heads. That’s a savings of $13.
