As I'm sure I've mentioned before, I am an avid coupon user. Although I am not "extreme" by an means, I do try to make the best use of my coupons by combining sales with coupons. I have a set price that I will pay for an item, unless I don't have it in stock and I'm desperate to have it... that day.
After I noticed this morning on a thread on this Forum that Walmart had a sale on an item that I had a few coupons for, I went out and braved the snow and cold weather.
This is what I came home with.
The pasta was on sale for $1.00 and I had 8 coupons @ $1.00. = FREE
Lean Cuisine was $1.97 and I had another Free Product coupon from this facebook promo = FREE
1 head of Romaine lettuce = $1.00
Bag of Spinach = $1.47
Bananas @ .67cents/lb $1.50 - $1.00 (from back of cereal box) = .50cents
2 Oasis juice @ 2.97 - 2@ .75cent coupon = $4.44
Total for shopping trip is $7.41
Total Coupon Savings = $ 12.47
(The Savings is not taking into account the fact that all these items were on sale to begin with)
I'm obviously not done my shopping for the week, but I would say I don't have to buy pasta for awhile.
So, what do you think?
Are coupons worth it?
