Coupon deal of the day

So Jen has started to get hooked on couponing...who can resist good deals and free stuff? Smiths had "double coupons" the past few days. They way they worked it is - any coupon you have that is valued under a dollar - they matched up to a dollar. So a 25 cent coupon you used, Smiths would credit you another 75 cents making your coupon worth one dollar. So with other store sales going on and coupons Jen had...this was the haul today for a grand total of $4.96!! :


1 box of Cheerios: full price $2.99, Smiths sale made it $2, Jen had a 55 cent coupon and with the double that made the box of cereal only $1!

Same deal with the boxes of Cinnamon Toast Crunch - $1 each after sale and coupons.

Flipz Chocolate Covered Pretzels: full price $1.99, Smiths sale made it $1, Jen had a 50 cent coupon and with the double that made the pretzels FREE!

Au Gratin Potatoes: full price $1.99, Smiths sale made it $1, Jen had a 40 cent coupon and with the double that made the potatoes FREE!

Gum: fully price $1.49, Smiths sale made it $1, Jen had a 50 cent coupon and with the double that made the gum FREE!

Cans of frosting: full price $2.09, Smiths sale made it $1.49, each can of frosting had an instant 25 cent coupon on it so with the double that made them 49 cents EACH! I bought four.

So if I was to walk into the store and pay full price for all of this it would have been $23.20. With the sale already happening in Smiths that made all of the above come to $14.96. Now add the double coupon special at Smiths and my grand total came to $4.96!!!

If I had been couponing longer I could have done more damage with that doubling deal going on at Smiths!

Don't you love couponing! HEB sucks for coupons but I usually go to Super Target and can save over half my bill! Love it!
