For the past 8 postpartum weeks, I’ve sat here gnashing my teeth about how much other mommy bloggers are able to save by couponing for groceries and household items. Really, you have NO IDEA how much they can get for so little money LEGALLY. Well, today I decided I was up for getting back in the game, so off I went to Kroger with coupons and sale paper in hand. My husband rolled his eyes when I told him that I was posting this, but if you “coupon,” please join in my little celebration because no one else is feeling the love here.
There’s a giveaway going on right now to win an additional $30 Kroger gift card, so have at it, all my fellow couponers, and see what you can get for $30 or less. Apparently it’s protocol to post a picture of your catch…whether it’s to encourage others or rub their noses in it, I can’t be sure, but who am I to buck the system?
Full price, this is about $73 worth of products that after coupons and in-store deals came to $25. Then I paid for $16 of it with what was left of a gift card I received on a previous coupon deal so total out-of-pocket was just under $9.
And that is what I did with my Saturday night. Sigh.
