I post a lot about the deals that I get, but I thought it would help if I posted a picture because, as they say, “A picture is worth 1,000 words.” If you’re wondering if couponing is really worth it, it is.
I got all of this at Randalls and Target. I don’t usually shop at Randalls, but I got a coupon in the mail offering me a $30 gift card to fill a new or transferred prescription and $10 off a $50 purchase.
Here’s the breakdown for Randalls:
6 boxes of cereal
2 bottles of Tide
1 bag of Fresh Express lettuce
2 bags of string cheese
1 bag of grapes
1 bag of celery
Used $10/50 Randalls coupon, used $1 off Tide in store coupon, used .50 Tide manufacturer’s coupon (which doubled), used $1 off Tide manufacturer’s coupon (from a home mailer), used 3 Kellogg’s $1 off printables, used 1 free Cheerio’s coupon, used 1 free Post cereals coupon, used $1 Quaker cereal coupon, used $1 Fresh Express bagged salad coupon (from a tear pad). It also took off an instant $5 for the cereals. I used the $30 Randalls gift card for filling a prescription and paid $5.30 out of pocket.
5 boxes cereal
6 pouches Star Kist tuna
2 bags Green Giant carrots
2 jars Prego
1 gallon milk
1 GG Valley Fresh Steamers frozen vegetables

I also have a $5 catalina to use toward the purchase of a gift card at Randalls for buying the 2 Tide.
