I'm planning to do a more detailed post in the next week and a half about how I've been saving money on grocery and household items , BUT today was a milestone day -- I saved 70% on my grocery bill (my average has been about 50%). I only did a quick run today because I had some coupons that I knew would match up with some sales, so I wanted to share with you!
How much do you think I paid for these items?
3 4-packs of toilet paper
3 herb blends
2 cans of pork and beans
5 pounds of ground chuck
2 pounds of pork chops
I paid $11.
Without sales, coupons or specials, this would have cost about $36. The thing is, that $11 was mostly the meat. The toilet paper and herb blends were free (because of coupons). And I got 7 pounds of meat for less than $10. Because I got meat that was on "manager's special." Basically, it just means I go home and put it in my freezer to use when I need it because it's "expiring." (The other day I got a roast for about $3.)
Anyway, I was very excited and had to share! Thing is, anyone can do this. So, soon I will post my tips and tricks so everyone can do it. No one should be paying retail for groceries anymore!
