Big Sale!

I got up at 5:15am this morning. Not to exercise. To save money! There's a big sale at Albertson's.

Some of the things pictured aren't usually on my list because they can be pretty expensive (and sometimes not very nutritious). But I figure once in awhile it's okay and when you combine coupons with the sale then I can afford it. My kids seriously thought they were in heaven when they got to have Toaster Strudel for breakfast this morning! (And as you can see, I also go some milk, wheatbread and whole grain cereals.) The only thing NOT pictured here is the Dr. Pepper that I drank on the way home.
(He's pretty excited about the Batman fruit snacks.)

Total value = $445.21

I paid = $100.21

A Savings of.....$335.00!!! WAHOO!

...and now I need a nap.

PS If you want to learn how to do this you can visit: Grocery Smarts or Pinching Your Pennies
And if you want someone to come and teach you (for free) how to do it, then go and visit Stacy here. (She didn't pay me for this advertisement. But good grief she taught me how to save $335! Thanks Stacy!)

WoW!!! What a haul. Thanks for the plug. I love saving and plan to make a quick trip to Albertson's this afternoon. Hopefully there's still some left :)

Amazing... I would be a little crazy in thinking that since I made the effort to find the coupons and get up at o'dark thirty then... I am going to the mall with the money I saved. I need to learn this!
