I'm getting ready to take a lunch break and go do my grocery shopping. First I looked through the store's weekly ad to see what is on sale. I make out a meal plan for dinners for the next week, add to my list what I need for the meals and then also add all the other miscellaneous items we need. Then I get online with my grocery store and add any coupons or sale prices to my store card. I look through my coupons on hand (though most times I just know in my head if I have a coupon for something) and then I go online to one of my favorite coupon websites HotCouponWorld.com and use their coupon database search and go through my list and see if I can find any additional coupons I can use.
Here's are the coupons and discounts I have come up with for this trip, just by taking an extra 10 minutes or so to look:
Campbells Tomato and Chx noodle soup -.40/4 (I have 2 of these so stocking up on 8)
Margarine -.75 (catalina coupon from last trip)
Lunchables - club card price 1.49 ea -1.25/6 (catalina coupon)
Yakisoba -.50 (I have 2, makes for a cheap work lunch)
Miralax 30ct -4.00 (part of Dh's medicine needed)
canned chicken breast -.75/2
Del Monte canned vegetable or fruit -.75/1 (wish I had more of these! this came in a mailer)
Soup at hand -.75/2 (again good for work lunches)
Quaker chewy granola bars (4) store card special 1.88 ea (usually at least 2.50 ea)
dryer sheets -1.00
Crystal Light tea packets -2.00/4 (Target catalina)
Plus I added some store club sale prices to my card for buns ($1.09 ea), bananas (.49/lb), and bath tissue ($5.00)
Just the coupons I have total $13.80, plus there will be additional savings with the adding the store club prices to my card.
