Extreme Couponing?

I feel like I pretty much dominated at grocery shopping these past couple days. I managed to stock our freezer and cabinets fairly well while easily saving over a couple hundred bucks. 

To give you an idea of the savings I had on Sunday:
I spent $74 at Wal-Mart for 70 items. 
One item was $20 and it was my dog's flea and tick meds and this was the only item I didn't price match. 
So essentially I spent $54 for 69 items. 

6 pkg of Kraft shredded cheese - FREE
6 pkg of Kraft natural slices cheese - FREE
6 pkg of Oscar Meyer bologna - Free (I don't eat this but I donate it)
6 pkg of Oscar Meyer Deli Fresh lunchmeat - .49 cents each
3 pkg of Oscar Meyer Bacon - .99 cents each
4 - 32 oz bottles of Gatorade - .59 cents each
4 jars of Planters peanuts - .99 cents each
6 pkg of Green Giant steamfresh frozen veggies -.65 cents each

Can't remember what all of this was priced but the total added with the stuff above only came out to $54.
2 pkgs of Crystal Light
3 bottles of Hunts Ketchup
2 Velveeta Cheesy Skillets
3 pkgs of Keebler Cookies
2 - 4lb bags of C&H Sugar
2 - 24pk cases of Nestle Pure Life Water
1 - 12 roll pk of Angel Soft TP
3 - Butterfingers
1 - Cheetos
1 - Fritos
4 pkg of Hamburger Helper
3 cans of manwhich
1 - Ekrich Smoked Sausage

$20 dog meds

Wally world deals.

You might be looking at this list and thinking that's a lot of crap and cheese. I admit, there is quite a bit of junk in here but this is also not what we eat every day and most of this stuff will last my husband and I several months (not the cheetos, they are my weakness;). I honestly go to the grocery store 2-3 times a week and pick up the fresh produce but I tend to stock up every couple months on this other stuff whenever they have big sales. A lot of the stuff "freezes beautifully" including the cheese and lunchmeat so that helps as well. 

Monday I followed up my big food extravaganza with a little bit of shopping at the local Dillons (Kroger). I had to run in to deposit my paycheck and pick up a prescription so I thought I would check things out while I was in there. Good thing I did. 

1 Gillette shaving cream
2 bottles of Pantene
2  tubes of Colgate toothpaste
1 Colgate toothbrush 
3 cans of Van Camps pork and beans (bbq season is upon us!)
1 Dial handsoap
1 Downy Unstoppables (mildly obsessed with these, have you tried them?)
1 head of Romaine lettuce

Grand total $5 and change. Not bad if I say so myself. 

Dillons deals.

If you have any questions about what kind of deals I used just let me know. I use coupons a lot and I also always price match at Wal-Mart. Such an easy way to save money even though it does take a little bit of time.

  1. TEACH ME HOW TO COUPON! And by teach me I really mean do it for me and save me money... but seriously. I tried looking at couponing sites for a while but I didn't understand the jargon.

    1. Deal! I learned from my mom since she has couponed before couponing was cool! The websites can be pretty confusing for sure. I don't even use them most of the time.


I love comments and will do my very best to get back with you!
