It was nothing for me to save about 89% at the grocery store.
I've been hearing a lot about the new Lowes Foods in Leland... which has been running a triple coupon promotion for several weeks. But, it took Mavis from Mavis Savers to convince me to check it out for myself.

That location will triple any coupon less than $1. You can use 20 coupons a day. I am out-of-pocket $9.12 after tax for all of the stuff above. It would have normally cost $79.54!
Ask Michelle to feature your deals
The food sales will last through Tuesday night, but there's no timeline for the triple coupon promotion.
HOW DID I DO IT? I used coupons with stuff already on sale. PLUS, there's a KRAFT deal (easy explanation below.) I forgot about the KRAFT deal - had I planned for it, I could've saved an additional $5. **THE KRAFT DEAL CAN BE DONE MOST ANYWHERE WITHOUT COUPONS**

Here's a look at some of the coupons I used:
A QUICK LOOK AT THE KRAFT DEAL:
Here are the basics: If you buy a certain amount of KRAFT products, KRAFT will give you money back.
Buy 3-5, get $2
Buy 6-9, get $5
Buy 10, get $10
And... you can use coupons. So, if you're smart at math, you could get 10 items as-close-to-free-as-possible with coupons... and then earn $10 back to use again at Lowes Foods.
Because of bad planning, I bought 9 items. ARGH.
I know I can't live off of Krunchers and Mac and Cheese. But, I believe in moderation... and because we don't make a practice of having junk food in the house, it's a nice treat sometimes. And, when mac and cheese is free, I have the option of making it for the hubby and me... or donating it.
Couponing really can be easy. This week I spent $9 on groceries... it took me longer to blog about this than it did to go shopping. I believe this can really make a difference in the way you live. My husband really loves saving the money... we use that towards bills and more fun!
